Description


If our planet is going to survive the climate crisis, we need to act rapidly. We cannot wait for national governments to agree on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and keep the average temperature rise to within 1.5 degrees. In Solved, David Miller argues that cities are taking action on climate change because they can - and because they must. He makes a clear-eyed and compelling case that, if replicated at pace and scale, the actions of leading global cities point the way to creating a more sustainable planet.

Solved: How the World's Great Cities Are Fixing the Climate Crisis demonstrates that initiatives in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Oslo, Shenzhen, Melbourne, and beyond can make a significant difference in reducing global emissions if implemented worldwide. By chronicling the stories of how cities have taken action into their own hands to meet and exceed emissions targets laid out in the Paris Agreement, Miller empowers readers to fix the climate crisis. As much a "how to" guide for policymakers as a work for concerned citizens, Solved aims to inspire hope through its clear and factual analysis of what can be done - now, today - to mitigate our harmful emissions and pave the way to a 1.5-degree world.
