“Hellfire, Noah’s Return, and Scones: Planning for Climate Change in the Anthropocene”

Brian Stone, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the City and Regional Planning Program of the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he teaches in the areas of urban environmental management, land use, and transportation planning. Stone’s program of research is focused on the spatial drivers of urban environmental phenomena, with an emphasis on climate change and air quality. Most recently, Stone has published studies on the role of land use in climate change mitigation, the extent to which urban areas are amplifying global warming trends, and the role of sprawling land use patterns in ozone formation. Prior to joining the Tech faculty in 2005, Stone taught in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Stone’s research program has been funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Georgia Cancer Coalition, among other funding institutions. He has worked as a planning consultant and served on the board of a number of non-profit organizations, including the Partnership for a Smog Free Georgia, the UW Aldo Leopold Arboretum, and the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance. Stone’s work on urbanization and environmental quality has been featured on CNN, National Public Radio, Georgia Public Broadcasting, and in the print media.
