ABSTRACT
The article presents tips on how to green one's city or how to make it environmentally-friendly. The city should address global climate change. Sir Nicholas Stern, former Chief Economist at the World Bank, said that it will be the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression or World War II. It should also make its buildings more efficient. A quarter of the world's carbon dioxide or CO2 emissions are released through buildings, and everyone pays for every unit of energy that is wasted. It should also support green energy. Calgary, Alberta, with its wind-powered C-Trains, saves 20,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year.
