In a very short time America has realized that global warming poses real challenges to the nation's future. The Agile City engages the fundamental question: what to do about it? Journalist and urban analyst James S. Russell argues that we'll more quickly slow global warming - and blunt its effects - by retrofitting cities, suburbs, and towns. The Agile City shows that change undertaken at the building and community level can reach carbon-reduction goals rapidly. Adapting buildings (39 percent of greenhouse-gas emission) and communities (slashing the 33 percent of transportation related emissions) offers numerous other benefits that tax gimmicks and massive alternative-energy investments can't match. Rapidly improving building techniques can readily cut carbon emissions by half, and some can get to zero. These cuts can be affordably achieved in the windshield-shattering heat of the desert and the bone-chilling cold of the north. Intelligently designing our towns could reduce marathon commutes and child chauffeuring to a few miles or eliminate it entirely. Agility, Russell argues, also means learning to adapt to the effects of climate change, which means redesigning the obsolete ways real-estate is financed; housing subsidies are distributed; transportation is provided; and water is obtained, distributed and disposed of. These engines of growth have become increasingly more dysfunctional both economically and environmentally. The Agile City highlights tactics that create multiplier effects, which means that ecologically driven change can shore-up economic opportunity, can make more productive workplaces, and can help revive neglected communities. Being able to look at multiple effects and multiple benefits of political choices and private investments is essential to assuring wealth and well-being in the future. Green, Russell writes, grows the future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brandon Massey. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/014257/bk_adbl_014257_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Racing Green Endurance (RGE) is a student-led project at Imperial College London to demonstrate the potential of zero emission cars. The team will be racing 26,000 km up the Pan-American highway. The race is planned to start in May 2010. RGE is planning to enter the race with a car based on the chassis of the Radical SR8 but using a fully electric powertrain. Racing Green Endurance was born as a spin-off from Imperial Racing Green in late 2008. Imperial Racing Green is an undergraduate teaching project to design and build fuel cell/electric hybrid racing cars, involving around 100 students from 8 departments within the university. The students are now designing and building the third generation of fuel cell powered racers.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, European Business School - International University Schloss Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Real Estate Management Institute), language: English, abstract: At the beginning of 2009, the owner of the Empire State Building unveiled his plan to 'go green'. The world famous skyscraper was completed in 1931 in New York, USA. The Art Deco building is currently in the midst of a $500m renovation, where $100m of these funds are designated for the green initiative. The green renovations are expected to decrease energy expenditures by 38 percent or $4.4m annually (Jonas, 2009). The example of the Empire State Building is not unique, since increased environmental awareness has affected nearly every industry. Companies across all industries and nations have launched green initiatives in order to improve their environmental performance and in response to the expressed concerns regarding their immediate environment. Currently, corporations compete to adopt and implement sustainable policies. Particularly the role of the real estate industry in reducing the environmental burden is considered to be the most important, as this industry is one of the largest emitters of harmful chemical substances and a major user of natural resources (Nelson, 2007, p. i). However, it is not enough to consider only the ecological aspects of real estate. This is because real estate, as a commodity, has an enormous economical impact. Other dimensions including economic and social aspects must also be examined. The term sustainability unites the three relevant dimensions. Over the last 20 years, bringing environmental protection to the same level as economic development and social concerns, sustainability has become a worldwide guiding principle. Sustainable development takes the future of mankind into account (Grunwald & Kopfmu¿ller, 2006, p. 7). In the context of global challenges, sustainability means ensuring the addressing of future generation's needs. In contrast to other industries, the real estate industry has been slow to develop sustainable practices. However, today, the idea of sustainability greatly influences actions and motivations associated with the real estate industry. Efforts to create sustainability in real estate are reflected in the names of a large number of the development of building labels, including Green Buildings, Sustainable Buildings, or Zero Emission Buildings. In Addition, more and more developers, architects, engineers, property owners, and lenders consider sustainability issues when planning, constructing, renovating, or living on property.
