Ten Lovely Cities You Can Migrate To and (Maybe) Survive Climate Havoc
Since I started making videos about affordable walkability and underrated urbanism, I’ve gotten several requests to do something specifically around small and mid-sized cities. Well, this video isn’t EXACTLY that, but it’s adjacent!
It turns out, if my brazen misapplication of the EPA’s Climate Resilience Screening Index is to be believed, small and mid-sized cities are going to be pretty good performers under trying climate conditions. So, if you were to pack up all your stuff and move to a place that had the least risk / most resilience, and was STILL a legitimate city, what city would it be? Well, this video has ten ideas for you. Ignore them at your peril!
