Chicago's plan for climate change

Chicago is getting serious about planning for climate change.  The NYTimes reports on their new plan, "Climate scientists have told city planners that based on current trends, Chicago will feel more like Baton Rouge than a Northern metropolis before the end of this century."  All that without the benefit of boiled crawfish?

Lots of green roof projects (they are already a leader).  And check out the diagram of the street of the future.  It seems like it requires an equal mix of planning and design.   (h/t Bognar)
