      Bitter Pills or Environmentalist Chicken Littles?

      Hmm, I've noticed that this 'anti-suburbia' thread has been getting kind of
      big. To be honest, I'm disappointed that I haven't heard from more of you
      on the newsgroup.

      What does everyone think of the proposition that cheap gas is going to end?
      What do you make of my contention that if we begin to tax it heavily now we
      can get the products we need, such as fuel-efficient cars, so that we can
      avert massive dislocation when cheap gas ends? Does anybody have any
      thoughts on what to do with communities that are not sustainable? How about
      the idea that bedroom communities are not good uses of resources? Is there
      anyone here who believes in the idea of an arcology, a la Arcosanti (see:
      http://www.getnet.com/arcosanti/index.html ) is viable? Can we continue to
      live the way we are now, as a car-bound nation? Just interested. I'd
      really like to hear from people other than Elizabeth, Julie, Nick, Joe, et
      al., as much as I like reading what they write.
