quote: but somehow city congestion needs to be solved.
quote: Everyone living in any large metropolitan area feels the pain not to mention pollution and other hazards that come with millions of cars trying to get in and out of city each day.
quote: Next time you drive into the city, say Hi to the kid who has to breath your truck's exhaust gas just because you want your freedom to drive how you like. And if you don't give a sh..t, then government needs to step up to make sure society as a whole does not have to pay for your privilege.

quote: burgeoning global population.
quote: Yet another thing: most of Australia is desert, and is close to supporting all the people it can currently.
