1. Paris has almost three times the number of residents as Seattle, in less than half the area.

2. Barcelona has 2.5 more people than Vancouver, in a smaller area.

3. Portland, OR, is almost as large as Vienna, but it has about a third the people.

4. All those maps are by @Sightline, in this great post from Alan Durning.  https://www.sightline.org/2019/08/12/what-would-our-cities-look-like-if-we-took-our-climate-change-values-seriously/
