Reid Ewing Speaks

Reid Ewing is a research professor and associate professor of Urban Studies and Planning. His study of sprawl and obesity has received sensational national media coverage. Ewing holds degrees in engineering and city planning from Harvard University and MIT. He is lead author of Growing Cooler: The Evidence on Urban Development and Climate Change. The book’s central argument is that urban form is inextricably linked to climate. Low-density sprawl has been a principal contributor to North American climate emissisons. The oposite, compact development — the kind that fosters less driving — curbs climate change.
