The High Cost of Free Parking book cover
The High Cost of Free Parking
Updated Edition
Donald Shoup - 2005-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 2004)
Calificación de Goodreads
American drivers park for free on nearly ninety-nine percent of their car trips, and cities require developers to provide ample off-street parking for every new building. The resulting cost? Today we see sprawling cities that are better suited to cars than people and a nationwide fleet of motor vehicles that consume one-eighth of the world's total ...

Correct. Bad urban policy design requiring excessive amounts of parking for residential and commercial buildings makes this problem worse. Love my e-bike (tho avoid @BlixBike) & technology can help too Also The High Cost of Free Parking is a great book.      fuente

The Alchemy of Air book cover
The Alchemy of Air
A Jewish Genius, a Doomed Tycoon, and the Scientific Discovery That Fed the World but Fueled the Rise of Hitler
Thomas Hager - 2008-09-09
Calificación de Goodreads
The Alchemy of Air delves into the tragic genius, cutting-edge science, and discovery that changed billions of lives, including your own. It tells the story of brilliant scientists Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch, who discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, and saved millions of lives. However, their triumph came at a price we are still paying, as the process was also used to make the gunpowder and explosives that killed millions during the two world wars. This previously untold story is a must-read for those interested in the intersection of science and history.

Cómo evitar un desastre climático book cover
Cómo evitar un desastre climático
Las soluciones que ya tenemos y los avances que aún necesitamos
Bill Gates - 2021-02-16
Calificación de Goodreads
In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical - and accessible - plan for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe. Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet's slide toward certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal. He gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations. Finally, he lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissions-suggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise. As Bill Gates makes clear, achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach.

Impeach book cover
The Case Against Donald Trump
Neal Katyal - 2019-11-26
Calificación de Goodreads
In "Impeach," Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal argues that President Trump's repeated requests for foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 election threaten the very foundations of democracy. Katyal maintains that impeachment is the last resort left to hold the President accountable for these actions, and one that our Constitution demands. If we fail to act, we risk compromising the core values that make America what it is.
Jason Bordoff
It's an interesting column. It bears a striking resemblance (without attribution) to the arguments, quotes, history in @neal_katyal's excellent new book.      fuente
