Dr. Reid Ewing

  • Housing and transportation account for 50% of all greenhouse gas emissions, so changing to electric vehicles won't help slow the climate crisis on its own. The manner in which we build and retrofit our residential and business communities is vital to environmental sustainability. The nation's lead expert on this is Reid Ewing, Distinguished Professor of City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah and this week's guest on "Issues of the Environment" with WEMU's David Fair. Later this month, Dr. Ewing will be a featured panelist in Ann Arbor on the interplay between housing and transportation when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint.
