Top Climate-Resilient Cities

June 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

The environmental blog Grist recently posted a listing of the best/worst suited US cities for climate change. We were entirely unsurprised to hear that the very best-suited cities are the very same cities prominently featured on this humble blog: Cleveland, Milwaukee, Detroit, and Chicago. Why? Says Grist, “Because they have a sustainable water supply (in four of the cities, the Great Lakes); their heat stress rankings are relatively low; and they are less vulnerable to natural disasters that will be exacerbated by climate change, such as floods, landslides, and wildfires.”
