Cities in the Urban Age

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

In this chapter, I explore the various ways in which cities are both environmentally destructive (putting great strains on natural resources and animal habitats) and yet hold out the promise of environmental sustainability. Pittsburgh in the mid-twentieth century and contemporary Phoenix are used as prime examples. Numerous examples of these conditions and mechanisms are presented.

Keywords:   environment, sustainability, environmental damage
