    A major problem in the US is each person taking up more and more space. I live in CT, a state having no population growth but with subdivisions and shopping centers rapidly consuming land where farms and woods had been.

    I'm 3 miles beyond downtown Hartford, in a turn of the (20th) century neighborhood of 50x100 ft lots That's about eight homes per acre. And many are multi-family homes, so the neighborhood probably averages 12 or more households per acre.

    City lots are commonly 25 ft wide and you can pack a lot of those into a small area. It doesn't leave much room for lawns, but most people just cover lawns with fertilizer and then complain about having to mow the grass.

    Not only do people take up less space with small lots, but they also create a dense enough residential area to support public transit plus neighborhood groceries & stores & bars & parks & schools & other good things.

    North and west of us (slightly higher and upwind of the factories) are neighborhoods built for the managers and higher paid people of the offices and factories where people in my neighborhood worked. Those neighborhoods are mostly 1/4 acre lots, which were pretty luxurious in 1900.

    Nowadays, status seeking people aren't generally content with something as small as a 1/4 acre. Even though they'll spend more time *****ing about lawn care than doing anything worthwhile with all their land. And, with no prospect of them walking to the bus stop or a playground or a store, lots of extra land is wasted for roads and parking spaces to handle all their driving.

    A lot of nature would be preserved if Americans didn't waste so much of it.

    I have to agree with goldtrap about the land belonging to the animals and the plants. It's to bad the stupid money-eyed politics don't really care about nature but how to get more money and they will only realize that they made a mistake when all the beautiful landscapes animals die and we start suffocating of the lack of oxygen. In a way wish humans weren't on this planet because it would look so much better without us on it. Sad but true.

    Any of you guys old enough to vote yet? If so, do so. If not, remember this for when you are old enough. As you have already figured out, this cannot continue. Not only do we have to cut down on our own population rate, but we have to be more mindful in how we take care of what little of the earth we have left. I think the 4 of you who have posted here so far would be prime candidates for a career in the field of conservation. Don't you think?

    I just came across this site, remarkably enough, in the same day as my last post. Are any of you familiar with it? Very interesting. Here is a step in the right direction. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, more people go on the Akins diet - good bye forest and Hello cows! Also G. Bush is reducing the size of tree cuttings so there is more clear cluttings for logging. Also thanks to people not wanting to live in Big Cities, they want to live in the woods with nature. Awww how nice...Come human, come house, come cars, come store, come Taco Bell, Come city...Urban Sprawl at its best! Unfortunate it is almost everyones dream to have a family and a kid or so. Even me.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    whats even worse is buisness such as starbucks , walmart , mc donalds and such are making buisness across buisnesses . for example , in some places theres a starbucks on one street and directly across the street theres another starbucks . thats is so dumb , and thats the end of the world if it keeps going on like this .
