DISPOSABLE CITY Miami's Future on the Shores of Climate Catastrophe

by | Read by Ron Butler

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

As Ron Butler narrates Mario Alejandro Ariza's kayak tour of Miami's waters with a friend, listeners will get a sense of the crisis facing the city yet be amused at the same time. Butler lets Ariza's affection for the city come through, even as the author's anger over climate gentrification emerges. Miami's geographic high ground has long been home to many people of color. Now neighborhoods such as Little Haiti are being eyed for development as fears of rising sea levels loom. As Ariza calls for action on local and national levels, Butler's voice gradually builds in emotion, conveying urgency. With an assist from science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson, Ariza wraps up his audiobook with a futurist's tour of a sunken city.
