country of cities

Currently involved in the Vishaan Chakrabarti manifesto, A Country of Cities.  I say involved rather than reading because the graphic content of the book warrants study and intention. Chakrabarti’s book is a book that is “preaching to the choir”, but it is a start in the important dire argument that needs to be crafted for the rest of the country. Some things that were touched on but I want to further investigate, the second revolution of Air Conditioning needs to be more forcefully addressed in the climate change argument and that revenue from the Mortgage Reduction tax law could cover the cost for more affordable urban housing. These tid bits are the things that offer up a HOW TO for this important but predictable argument.
