The Sweaty Penguin has covered many of the benefits of adding greenspace in an urban neighborhood, building jetties or seawalls to protect a coastal community, or simply living on higher ground in a city prone to floods and hurricanes. But could these seemingly great climate resilience strategies actually cause a problem for the people living in these neighborhoods? Today, The Sweaty Penguin explores what gentrification is, considers how the environment plays a role in gentrification, and wrestles with the historical injustices and economics principles that, put together, make gentrification such a challenging issue to tackle. With special guest Dr. Malo Hutson: Dean and Edward E. Elson Professor of the University of Virginia School of Architecture.
