About speaker

Greg Lindsay
Director of Research at NewCities

After more than a decade’s experience writing for magazines and newspapers about media, technology, travel, and design, my story “Rise of the Aerotropolis,” published in Fast Company in 2006, led to a book and a refined focus on urbanism, transportation, and technology. “Aerotropolis: The Way We’ll Live Next” (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) was published in March 2011. Time’s Pico Iyer called it “dazzling,” The New Yorker’s Nicholas Lemann found it “enthralling,” and Bloomberg BusinessWeek pronounced it a “fascinating and important work.”I’ve since studied, written and spoke at length about the future of cities, with a special emphasis on the intersections of urbanism with such challenges as innovation, immigration, climate change, technology and transportation. I’ve spoken recently at Sandia National Laboratories, the U.K. Treasury, the OECD, Harvard Business School, the MIT Media Lab, Deloitte, and McKinsey.I’ve also advised such companies as Intel, Ericsson, Samsung, Starbucks, Audi, Chrysler, Tishman Speyer, British Land, Emaar, André Balazs Properties, and Expo 2020, among other organizations. My work with Studio Gang Architects on the future of suburbia was displayed in 2012 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and other works have been displayed at the 15th and 16th Venice Architecture Biennales, the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, and Habitat III.

I am Greg Lindsay, Director of Research for NewCities. And the reason I'm here today is talking about sustainability is because well this is why we need it this of course North America in the last month or so multiple hurricanes over the Atlantic smoke from wildfires across the West sweeping here across you can see climate change happening in real-time the result of all of our land-use policies Lifestyles everything else here. You can see the West on fire

smoke pouring across the most livable areas in the United States becoming temporarily least in the most polluted cities on the planet Earth chords to know the orange earrings orange glow over Northern California at what good is technology. If this is the kind of world are inhabited this is what I want to talk a bit about today about new models of urban sustainability here and thinking about what the next decade or life will be like and I don't go out

these days about Robert Frost's poem Fire and Ice some say the world will end in fire. He wrote and of course, it doesn't take much to think about climate change in the fires and then the other correlation. Some say in ice and this is a course during the pandemic is still raging hear the people complaining about economic lockdowns and the damage done to our economy to experiment a little bit over this spring. I what would happen if we in fact shut down the world and you can see here that your scientists predicted in April. We saw the global carbon emissions

ball 17% That's the good news or the bad news is that we had to basically destroy a third of the United States economy temporarily to do that, which I think is interesting in selling personal choice in combating climate change of sustainability. Even when we decided that we were not going to move move as little as possible. We still saw this systematically the effects of that were double sink as more levels are various systems
