Threats and Responses Associated with Rapid Climate Change in Metropolitan New York

Metropolitan New York is vulnerable to coastal flooding and widespread damage to urban infrastructure, commercial structures and residential neighborhoods from both seasonal hurricanes and extra-tropical storms. A significant portion of the metropolitan area lies less than 3 m above mean sea level in total covering an area of about 260 km2 (see Figure 9.1). Many types of structures are located within this low-lying region, including commercial properties and financial institutions, apartment buildings and private dwellings, hospitals, police and fire stations, marine transportation terminals, three major airports, heliports, numerous underground railroad and subway lines (with associated station entrances and ventilation shafts), highways, bridge access roads, tunnels, power plants, the underground steam district heating system, electrical and communication networks, landfills, 14 waste water treatment facilities and 770 combined sewer overflows with their tide gate regulators...

Change Based on Small Scale Technologies

Sweden used to be heavily reliant on oil for its substantial needs of heating in the winter. During the 1980s many households switched over to electricity-based heating systems. Due to the increasing demand for electricity, and the cost of expanding the resources for power generation, the Swedish government has subsidized the installation of small-scale renewable energy, and energy conservation, solutions for individual households, small apartment buildings, and small companies. This has included subsidies for the installation of heat pumps, boilers fueled by wood pellets, and other sustainable energy technologies and investments in additional insulation, triple glazing windows and other energy conservation technologies.

Large Scale Generation

The advantage of large-scale generation alternatives is that a smaller number of large-scale projects could generate substantial amounts of renewable energy. Large-scale projects can be managed as large projects, which we have substantial experience of running, and each of the projects concerns the large-scale implementation of technologies. Within the large-scale alternatives we find that different choices will create different production structures in the future. In the case of nuclear energy and tidal power, a smaller number of facilities will be needed than in the cases of wind turbines and wave energy. These alternatives represent completely different types of technical and financial challenges and they may all be needed to some extent in the future structure for energy production. Compared to small-scale generation for single households or apartment buildings, the large-scale technologies require fewer resources per volume of production to sell, construct, build and operate,...

Technological Progress As Impeded By Lockout And Lockin

For example, Casten and Collins (2002) argues that a technology known as decentralized combined heat and power (DCHP) would displace a significant fraction of the demand for centralized electric power, as well as fuel for domestic and commercial space heating and water heating, if not for regulatory restrictions. (DCHP is a system in which many small electric power plants utilizing natural or manufactured gas and small gas turbines can provide both heat and power to industrial sites and apartment buildings). To be sure, many economists deny that alternatives (like DCHP) would in fact cut costs, usually by introducing the notion of 'hidden costs' of change. But the undeniable existence of some (hidden and unquantified) costs of moving from one local minimum to another in a multi-equilibria system does not contradict the possibility that another minimum may be lower than the one we currently occupy. The basic reason this 'opportunity' has been neglected is that regulation introduced...

Hawks nest on Fifth Avenue high-rises in New York City. Golden eagles have returned to San Francisco Bay. They now use the warm updrafts off apartment building air conditioners to climb higher and higher by spiraling up. Sea lions have taken over a park in Monterey they even use the benches. These are signs the Earth can heal.

The Private Goals of Public Agents

Probably the most common type of policy failure reflects what economists call principal-agent problems. Think of the principal as the owner of an apartment building, and the agent as someone hired to manage the rental units. The agent is unlikely to do things exactly the way the principal would like. If the building burns down, the agent loses his job but not his assets. If ten

Ecological Urban Renewal

The Solgarden urban renewal project, also in Kolding, illustrates how older buildings can be effectively retrofitted to incorporate photovoltaics and solar energy. Just completed, this project (its name means sun court ) includes architecturally integrated photovoltaic panels in four curving arrays on the rooftop and on the exterior walls of new enclosed balcony sunrooms (Municipality of Kolding, 1996). The explicit objective in the renovation of this late 1930s apartment building is a 50 percent reduction in the fossil fuel consumed by residents of the building.6 In total, the building includes 846 photovoltaic modules and will provide more than half of

Verdesian New York New York

A 27-story residential building in New York City's Battery Park City, the Verdesian was completed in 2006. The 300,000-square-feet luxury apartment building includes 252 residences the total project cost was 75 million. A natural-gas-fired microturbine produces 70 kW of power (20 percent of the base load) and

Greenwalls and Green Streets

There are many other positive and creative examples in European cities of efforts to green existing and new buildings, including balcony gardens, greenwalls, nestboxes, and other habitat enhancements, as well as green-roofs. (For a discussion of many of these examples and a review of the benefits and technical aspects, see Johnston and Newton, 1997). European cities and towns offer many other examples of creative urban greening. Greenwalls are especially common in German cities, and increasing efforts are made to design structures such as outside stairwells of apartment buildings and parking garages with trellises and vine-climbing frames to provide space for clinging plants. Common species used include Virginia creeper and wisteria. Interestingly, greenwalls provide many of the same benefits as greenroofs. Although our tendency in the United States is to view ivy and other wall clinging plants as destructive to building facades, their effects are generally just the opposite wall...

Box The Case of the Oresund Bridge

After the bridge was opened, the number of crossings was at a disappointingly low level, and the tolls charged to travelers made too little money to pay back the investment. Business between the countries, despite the regions' similarities, had never been particularly busy, but still many companies had activities on both sides of the strait, and many occasions for business travel had been expected. The international airport of Copenhagen is located at one end of the bridge. This airport is used for virtually all international 2. Increase population density, through the construction of new apartment buildings and offices within existing districts.

Park and Baird Boulevards Camden New Jersey

Park Boulevard in Camden, New Jersey is one of the three main thoroughfares of the Parkside neighborhood (named for the three local parks, Red Hill, Forest Hill, and Farnham parks). One of the neighborhood landmarks is the historic Pearlye Building. Originally constructed in the late 1800s as an apartment building, the structure was dilapidated after having been abandoned for over fifteen years. In 1998 a community group, Parkside Business and Community in Partnership (PBCIP), approached a local developer, Charles Lewis, with Pennrose Properties about rehabilitating the property. Lewis expressed interest but noted that the building would only yield ten or eleven apartments, too small for the firm to take on, so he began looking for a way to augment the project. He found that the adjacent, 1950s-era Parkview Apartments were also abandoned. By combining the properties, the project became economically viable. Cost Implications There is a fine line between balancing the needs of the Green...

The World Trade Center

The dust and fumes from the catastrophic collapse of the World Trade Center released an estimated million tons of dust, smoke, fumes, and soot generated from pulverized concrete, metals, silica, and organic materials within the buildings, appeared to have wreaked havoc on the lungs of thousands of firefighters, police officers, and World Trade Center employees who were on site on 9 11, and days and weeks after. The unimaginable concentration of dust and particles were an ongoing concern for thousands of people, including residents living in apartment buildings nearby. In addition to dust and particulates, hazardous chemicals such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), including benz(a)pyrene, crysene, and benz(b)fluoranthene, have produced carcinogenic, mutagenic, and genotoxic effects in lab animal studies.

Solar Energy Utilization in Israel

A visitor to Israel will unavoidably notice the urban landscape bursting with solar collectors and hot water storage tanks covering the roofs of buildings. Almost all residences in Israel are equipped with solar water heaters. The most common are the thermosyphonic system, a completely passive, standalone unit consisting of one or two flat plate solar collectors and an insulated storage tank. Large multistory apartment buildings often use a central system with a collector array on the roof and a storage tank in the basement, employing a pump controlled by a differential thermostat. Other arrangements are also available. In most of the country, the solar system will supply the full demand for hot water during 9-10 months per year, with an electric resistance backup employed the rest of the time. Freeze protection is never required, except in some isolated locations. The economics the installed cost of a typical single-family system comprising a 150 l storage tank and 2-3 m2 flat plate...

The Siege Phase

A few people get caught outside as the storm returns, taken by surprise at the suddenness with which the eyewall has moved back over them. One man struggles and slides on the wet concrete of his driveway. His wife throws him a piece of clothesline and pulls him in. During the next hour and a half, what little is left of the foliage in Coral Gables is stripped of almost every leaf. Some of the stronger pine trees remain standing others lean as if they have been pushed down by a great bulldozer. Houses and apartment buildings are unroofed, and the rain comes rushing in.


Today, large-scale hydropower produces about 70 terawatt hours per year (TWh yr), and small-scale (below 150 kilowatts (kW) and run-of-river hydroelectric installations produce about 4.5 TWh yr. France also has one of the world's few operational, large tidal electric power stations (Rance River, Brittany). In the late nineteenth century coal was increasingly used, but wood remains a major source of commercial and non-commercial energy, still providing around 40 percent of rural space-heating fuel requirements. Furthermore, French law requires all apartment buildings to retain chimneys for wood burning in case of interruption of other fuel supplies.

Justice Social

Certified as a LEED Gold project, Colorado Court, a 30,000-square-foot, 44-unit single-resident occupancy (SRO) apartment building in Santa Monica, California, was designed to be 100 energy independent, using passive solar design strategies, an onsite gas-fired cogeneration system and solar electric power. The project will save each unit 150 per year on utility bills and is strikingly beautiful as well, showcasing the aesthetic potential of polycrystalline silicon PV panels.

Solid Waste

Consider the example of New York City. In the 1960s more than 17,000 apartment building incinerators and 22 municipal incinerators burned one-third of the city's trash. The remaining garbage went to Fresh Kills and other landfills in the outer boroughs.51 Over time, public pressure for alternative disposal options began to mount. Old incinerators and landfills were gradually shut down. The last municipal incinerator closed in 1992, and by the late 1990s, Fresh Kills was the only active dump. At the time, New York City was sending 13,000 tons of garbage per day to Fresh Kills at a price of 50 a ton. After Fresh Kills closed in March 2001, the city began to ship waste to Virginia at the cost of 120 a ton. This 140 percent price increase created a powerful incentive for New York City to economize on its production of garbage. Between 2000 and 2005, there has been a slight reduction in tons of waste disposed of per day despite the city's economic growth.52 Of course, it remains an open...

Highrise housing

As a specialized market segment for green buildings, housing is just starting to develop. Multiple-unit (above three stories) residential LEED registrations are running at about 3.5 percent of the total, or about 175 of the initial 5,000 registrations through February 2007. The first LEED-Gold high-rise apartment project, The Solaire in New York City, was certified at the end of 2003. Another New York City high-rise apartment, The Helena, was certified at LEED Gold in 2005. In Portland, Oregon, The Henry, a 16-story condominium project, was certified at LEED Silver in 2004. A 16-story apartment building in Portland, The Louisa, was certified at LEED Gold in 2007.23 It is ironic that two very dissimilar


In 2002, the largest sinkhole in recent U.S. history opened up in Orlando, Florida, and swallowed large oak trees, park benches, and a sidewalk. Over 45 meters across with a depth of 18 meters, the sinkhole threatened nearby apartment buildings. City officials lined the sinkhole sides with plastic to keep rainfall from causing even more damage.


Additionally, Waring created municipal refuse-sorting plants staffed by immigrant workers, the poor, blacks, and other minorities. They removed salvageable materials, sorted paper, and picked over goods that could be sold or recycled. Workers experienced a mixed blessing, caught between the advantage of employment and the consequences of unsanitary working conditions. Exposed to smoke and dust while working in sorting plants, they were also condemned to living in substandard apartment buildings.

Air Pollution

In the United States, the first measures to combat air pollution were local, state, or municipal ordinances, with California taking the lead as early as 1947. There was a certain logic to this approach of local regulation and enforcement of air pollution, because different regions faced different problems and different degrees of severity. Thus New York City banned incineration of garbage in apartment buildings in the late 1960s, and the sight of black smoke rising from innumerable residential chimneys became a thing of the past. But there was also a major problem with this approach pollution travels across state (and in Europe also national) boundaries, so that people living on the West Side of Manhattan could still smell New Jersey'' when the wind was out of the west. The industrial emissions of the upper Midwest Rust Belt drifted over the rural farmlands and forests of Virginia, Delaware, and New England.
