Conventional wisdom about the environmental impact of cities holds that urbanization and environmental quality are necessarily at odds‎.‎ Cities are seen to be sites of ecological disruption‎,‎ consuming a disproportionate share of natural resources‎,‎ producing high levels of pollution‎,‎ and concentrating harmful emissions precisely where the population is most concentrated‎.‎ Cities appear to be particularly vulnerable to natural disasters‎,‎ to be inherently at risk from outbreaks of infectious diseases‎,‎ and even to offer dysfunctional and unnatural settings for human life‎.‎ In this book‎,‎ William Meyer tests these widely held beliefs against the evidence‎.‎ Borrowing some useful terminology from the public health literature‎,‎ Meyer weighs instances of "urban penalty" against those of "urban advantage‎.‎" He finds that many supposed urban environmental penalties are illusory‎,‎ based on commonsense preconceptions and not on solid evidence‎.‎ In fact‎,‎ greater degrees of "urbanness" often offer advantages rather than penalties‎.‎ The characteristic compactness of cities‎,‎ for example‎,‎ lessens the pressure on ecological systems and enables resource consumption to be more efficient‎.‎ On the whole‎,‎ Meyer reports‎,‎ cities offer greater safety from environmental hazards ‎(‎geophysical‎,‎ technological‎,‎ and biological‎)‎ than more dispersed settlement does‎.‎ In fact‎,‎ the city‎-defining characteristics widely supposed to result in environmental penalties do much to account for cities‎'‎ environmental advantages‎.‎ As of 2008 ‎(‎according to U‎.‎N‎.‎ statistics‎)‎‎,‎ more people live in cities than in rural areas‎.‎ Meyer‎'‎s analysis clarifies the effects of such a profound shift‎,‎ covering a full range of environmental issues in urban settings‎.‎
