I have the first two. In a past life I forecast weather and aborted a bioclimatology degree, so I'm passionate about the subject of man-made climate change.

o Farr's book is excellent for practice at smaller scales (less than landscape), highly recommended (albeit a tad pricey) for design ideas and justification
o Growing Cooler is a little more overview and detail with a bit less application, still very good compendium for getting your talking points down for plans and policy justification, & advice and consent for electeds and appointeds.
You may also want to look at:
o Soule Remaking American Communities - various essays on a wide range of topics: finance, econ, land use law, etc and integrated well.for decent surveys of the topic. Scaling from larger to smaller.
o Newman and Jennings Cities as Sustainable Ecosytems - 30,000 foot view
o Friedman Sustainable Residential Development - good technical detail across smaller scales
A bit separate from strict built environment planning and design is Benedict and McMahon Green Infrastructure (I'm a GI guy) for excellent 15,000 foot-view strategies at integrating green and gray infra.
Another good one for policy formation - esp at a larger scale - is Babbitt's Cities in the Wilderness for scaling, integration, policy justification and good stories about enacting policy at high levels.
