Plastic, copper, gold, silicon. These are just a few of the materials needed to create modern electronics, which are the backbone of modern technology. Although most materials are relatively cheap and products mass produced, there still needs to be a lot of them in even the smallest system. Smart cities can implement all sorts of smart technologies that can address climate change. The only problem is the resources needed to do so. Alternative products and methods only go so far when addressing climate change; it is a behavioral change that needs to be made. We need to change our lifestyles regardless of how connected, technological, or "smart" a city is. Behavior and lifestyle first, "smart" technologies along with it or next.
