Debate London: How Can a Boomtown be Green?24 June 2007
Thanks to their high level of public transport, Londoners create fewest emissions and are the greenest people in Britain. But like any big city, London eats up energy and pumps out pollution. 'How can a boomtown be green?' asked how we could reduce rather than increase environmental damage. Could London be a model for sustainable big cities around the world? Or would attempts to make it more sustainable stifle its growth and force people out?
