Peter Calthorpe's Vision for California: Save the Cities, Save the World

Beyond addressing the "lack of community soul" in the typical sprawl-filled suburban American town, Calthorpe addressed the environmental benefits of new urbanist development at CNU18. As this article from Fast Company writes: "Calthorpe has something even bigger in mind: bringing urbanism to bear on the debate about how best to combat climate change, using metrics and software that quantifies the savings in both CO2 and dollars from denser urbanism. "This policy debate is going forward without us," he said. "And I think it's very important we inject ourselves into it, because we have the best solution for climate change."
