Hamburg is looking to address the potential dangers of climate change after observing a 10-degree Celsius rise in temperature over the last 50 years. What’s worse, at this pace temperatures are expected to jump another dramatic 30 degrees by 2100. At the same time, the city planners noted that this plan goes beyond environmental concerns and is really a vision for how to live in harmony with our planet. They said:
It will offer people opportunities to hike, swim, do water sports, enjoy picnics and restaurants, experience calm and watch nature and wildlife right in the city, [reducing] the need to take the car for weekend outings outside the city.
Do you wish your city would get rid of cars too?
