Prose: non-fiction, Economics

"Climatopolis documents the thinking of a first-rate economist on one of the most pressing issues of our time"-Nature

We have released the genie from the bottle: climate change is coming, and there's no stopping it. The question, according to environmental economist Matthew E. Kahn, is not how we're going to avoid a hotter future but how we're going to adapt to it. In Climatopolis , Kahn argues that cities and regions will adapt to rising temperatures over time, slowly transforming our everyday lives as we change our behaviours and our surroundings. Taking the reader on a tour of the world's cities, from New York to Beijing to Mumbai,Kahn's clear-eyed, engaging, and optimistic message presents a positive yet realistic picture of what our urban future will look like.
