This event will take place in San Jose.

Air conditioners are cheaper and more efficient so we use them more. Greater fuel efficiency has driven us to use more, not less, gas. In his new book, The ConundrumDavid Owen, writer for The New Yorker and author of Green Metropolis, addresses these and countless other eco-dilemmas, arguing that far from helping solve the problems of climate change, advances in energy efficiency are actually causing less sustainable behavior. Join Owen and Allison ArieffNew York Times’ columnist and editor of SPUR’s magazine The Urbanist for a discussion about how urbanism may hold the key to the future of our cities. This event is co-sponsored by 1stACT Silicon Valley and supported by the City of San Jose.
