The 2100 Project: An Atlas for the Green New Deal
Out of the McHarg Center at the University of Pennsylvania, this Atlas was conceived in relation to three intersecting issues. First, excess carbon in the atmosphere is changing the world’s climate; sea levels are rising, temperatures are increasing, and destructive weather events are becoming more frequent. Second, because our systems of extraction, production and consumption are causing climate change, an incremental approach to the future is not an option. Third, the US population is expected to grow by at least 100 million people this century, adding significantly to what is already the world’s most consumptive, high-carbon economy.
Covers projected population, land use, temperature, mortality, human migration and effects on agriculture and the economy across the globe.
