A Resilient City Through Environmental Sustainability

BY DOUGLAS MELNICK
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

Douglas Melnick is passionate about environmental sustainability. And for good reason, because San Antonio is getting hotter. Temperatures here have risen 2.5 degree Celsius since 1960, and these kinds of drastic changes have real implications for our city today and tomorrow. For example, our infrastructure was not designed for the inundation of flood waters and other
extreme weather conditions that are becoming more frequent. But we can build resilience into our communities with incremental steps like composting, which leads to less methane in the atmosphere, or riding a bike to work, which decreases carbon emissions. And he reminds us if we don’t have the public transportation or other sustainability programs we want to see, it’s up to us to advocate for them.
