NPR Specials: Does Greening The Economy Leave Some People Behind?

Apr 25, 2017

This week on NPR Specials:

Cities are leading the way in the greening of America’s economy. From urban parks and farms to microgrids and living buildings, dynamic urban planning can adapt to changing coastlines and severe weather delivered by a volatile climate. But there’s a risk that green-living innovations become solely the domain of a privileged urban elite.

On this week's Climate One we hear how issues from transit to housing to jobs are all affected by our changing climate, and how states like California are working to ensure that everyone benefits from a greener economy.

Climate One: Does Greening The Economy Leave Some Behind? will air on Saturday, April 29th at 19:00 and Monday, May 1st at 08:00.
