James Howard Kunstler: The Tragedy of Suburbia

I have posted a couple of times the past week promoting new urbanism and smart growth and thought I'd share this speech from James Howard Kunstler given at the TED conference a few years ago.

As I wrote on Saturday, now is the time to reconsider how are cities and towns develop...
While we are facing an economic downturn, now is the time where cities can promote infill development, new urbanism principles, and more bike/pedistrian-friendly in their development patterns.
... and build places worth caring about.
