calthorpedj-final300dpi-209x300SF.StreetsBlog.org is publishing a five part series of excerpts from our new favorite book, Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change, by Peter Calthorpe. Get a sneak preview (with some peeks at L Studio-designed infographics) before you buy your own copy.

From the series:
The urban solution involves both technology and design… Shaping regions that reduce oil dependence simultaneously reduces carbon emissions, costs less for the average household, and creates healthy, integrated places for our seniors: one solution for multiple challenges… The intersection of lifestyle and conservation is urbanism.
