Will people try to build more cities thanks to the report that says cities sequester more than forests?

    The fact that cities tend to sequester a good deal of carbon, shouldn’t, I think, be a motive in and of itself for building more cities.  (Cities also, to be fair, emit a good deal of carbon, whereas forests do not).  The development of cities out of smaller towns and villages, furthermore, was not an instantaneous process in which people, one day, decided to “build” them.  The process was slow and historically entangled and had to do with population clusters and economic geometry as much as the environment.  In other words, don’t expect new metropolises to spring up on the basis of a report.
