Summary
Upending the environmentalist viewpoint that urban areas are "anti-green, " New Yorker staff writer David Owen argues that sustainability is achieved in areas like New York City while open space, backyard compost heaps, locavorism and high-tech gadgetry like solar panels and triple-paned windows are formulas for wasteful sprawl and green-washed consumerism
