INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR PETER NEWMAN
Academic and activist Peter Newman joins our podcast to discuss his latest books THE END OF AUTOMOBILE DEPENDENCE and the revised RESILIENT CITIES. Currently a professor at Curtin University in Australia, he is a Fulbright Scholar, and Guest Speaker for the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities.
Part 3, The Future of Transportation
Peter Newman: “I can’t imagine that the cities that have carefully won back urban spaces that are walkable, desirable places to sit around and enjoy a coffee, are going to allow them to be taken over by autonomous vehicles, furiously running around the streets, totally disturbing any kind of walkability, and the kind of ambience that we have won in great political activism. We’re not going to give that up easily.”
