Climate Positive strategies for growth

The Clinton Climate Initiative announced a new effort, recently, that would strive to promote strategies for cities that would help new growth be "Climate Positive". The video below uses beautifully shot imagery of cities around the world while touting new development that creates more energy than it uses.

Since this was announced last month it has been covered by several online outlets drawing interesting comments. For instance, the NY Times Green Inc. Blog didn't take long to get comments linking this to the new LEED ND standard and contrasting it with new urbanist efforts.
