Creating Denser Cities Won’t Reduce C02 Emissions Enough

M.I.T. Technology Review wrote that creating denser cities doesn’t reduce C02 emissions enough to make a major difference by 2050, when some of worst effects of climate change are expected to take effect. A  recent report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) found that policies designed to make cities more compact will “do little to reduce gas consumption by 2050.” Fighting urban sprawl, and the time spent commuting via cars, has been viewed as critical to reducing C02 emissions.
