In a very short time America has realized that global
warming poses real challenges to the nation's future. The
Agile City engages the fundamental question: what to do
about it?

Journalist and urban analyst James S. Russell argues that
we'll more quickly slow global warming - and blunt its
effects - by retrofitting cities, suburbs, and towns. The
Agile City shows that change undertaken at the building
and community level can reach carbon - reduction goals
Adapting buildings (39 percent of greenhouse - gas
emission) and communities (slashing the 33 percent of
transportation related emissions) offers numerous other
benefits that tax gimmicks and massive alternative -
energy investments can't match.

Rapidly improving building techniques can readily cut
carbon emissions by half, and some can get to zero.
These cuts can be affordably achieved in the windshield -
shattering heat of the desert and the bone - chilling cold
of the north. Intelligently designing our towns could
reduce marathon commutes and child chauffeuring to a
few miles or eliminate it entirely. Agility, Russell argues,
also means learning to adapt to the effects of climate
change, which means redesigning the obsolete ways real
estate is financed; housing subsidies are distributed;
transportation is provided; and water is obtained,
distributed and disposed of. These engines of growth
have become increasingly more dysfunctional both
economically and environmentally.

The Agile City highlights tactics that create multiplier
effects, which means that ecologically driven change can
shore - up economic opportunity, can make more
productive workplaces, and can help revive neglected
communities. Being able to look at multiple effects and
multiple benefits of political choices and private
investments is essential to assuring wealth and well -
being in the future. Green, Russell writes, grows the
