Bubble, Bubble, Oil and Trouble

Father Theo's Blog: "The body of peer-reviewed scientific literature effectively is science.  Thus the science and the scientists agree in equal measure that the climate’s in a mess, fossil carbon is the cause, and if we don’t do something about it, we’re going to fall into a mess we can’t crawl out of.  The quicker we act the more damage we can avoid."

Winnipeg needs to address sprawl

Winter is coming - Winnipeg Free Press: "The goal of rapid transit is not to simply get people from one place to another quickly. It is to avoid the need for cities to occupy larger and larger footprints.
It sounds utopian, but denser cities are cheaper to operate, easier to navigate, promote more interaction between people and tend to be prone to less crime. They are simply more livable for people other than those who rely exclusively on cars."
