Emerald Cities


Fitzgerald, Joan (2010) Emerald Cities: Urban sustainability and economic development. Oxford University Press: Oxford, UK.

This book seems well-researched but it was dense with data. I had trouble absorbing the flood of statistics in the narrative and found my mind wandering. I was most interested in the first chapter that talks about Freiburg, Germany, because I traveled there. Fitzgerald approaches the challenges realistically, with no rose colored glasses about how quickly we can get off fossil fuels.
