Climate Change and the Future of Cities What can sociology contribute to the study of climate change? What can it add to the roiling debates about how to mitigate, adapt, and transform the places we settle in the face of an existential threat to the future of our species, and many others as well? In this talk, Eric Klinenberg draws on his own research as well as his experience serving as Research Director of the federal government’s Rebuild By Design competition for rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy. He'll examine a number of urgent questions: How can cities can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create more sustainable forms of collective life? How can they protect vulnerable people and places from the outbursts of extreme weather that are becoming ever more likely to arrive? And can they adapt to global warming without making the world even more unequal?
