"The evidence these case studies offer is valuable because it leans more toward 'clear empirical arguments concerning what works and what doesn't in cities' actual experiences' than 'outright advocacy' for what should be done. Proven efficacy is critical to launching new initiatives in the U.S., particularly given the lack of a comprehensive national strategy for climate change has left cities with the daunting task of addressing the issue themselves. Many cities also lack the appropriate resources so can't make mistakes financing ineffective programs...The book clearly demonstrates that the sustainability movement in the U.S. is gaining support. However, progress is slow...Slavin is nevertheless optimistic in light of what the case studies have shown."
