“Summer in the city” may conjure up images of sweaty subway cars, but New York’s summers are actually a lot cooler than one might think. More and more electricity is being consumed for air-conditioning, and the resulting emissions will mean even higher outside temperatures as time goes on. Author and environmentalist Stan Cox, named one of The Atlantic's "Brave Thinkers" in 2012, discusses the costs and benefits of New Yorkers' growing reliance on climate control. A brief discussion and Q+A with Cecil Mark-Corbin, Deputy Director and Director of Policy Initiatives at WE ACT for Environmental Justice, to follow.

New Yorkers go through hundreds of millions of plastic shopping bags, coffee cups, take-out clamshells, soda straws, and other single-use items every day – all in the name of convenience. But that short-term convenience comes with long-term costs to the environment and our health. Journalist Susan Freinkel, author of Plastic: A Toxic Love Story, talks about how the rise of plastic helped create a culture of convenience and how to live with the disposables we can’t seem to do without.
