Climate change can go one of two ways, bring us together or drive us apart, and cities will lead the way. This week, veteran architect, author and planner Carl Anthony joins Laura in conversation with Ashley Dawson, author of ‘Extreme Cities,’ to discuss the best and worst ways to respond to climate change. Also, Avery Bang, of nonprofit Bridges to Prosperity, on building footbridges to freedom for isolated communities.
