Livable Cities: Creating a Sustainable Urban Environment
Program #MCKB001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 01, 1999.
Few cities in the U.S. are immune from the impact of urban sprawl. That quiet house with a yard, that piece of the country close to the city, comes with a high price as roads, subdivisions and shopping malls gobble up farmland and open space. Then there's the commute. It's not uncommon for people to spend an hour each way driving to and from work every day. The planet pays a high price. All those cars driving across our sprawling cities are a top contributor to the build-up of gases in the atmosphere linked to global climate change.
