Sometimes an Idea is almost Too Novel

The inner-environmentalist in me think that this is exactly the kind of great idea we need to make happen.  Imagine if Chicago, LA, Miami, Phoenix…all these big, sprawling cities weren’t needed anymore.  Have one Megapolis with all the finance and creative and any other urban industries, and let the rest of the US go fallow.

We already know that NYC is one of the greenest cities because of it’s use of mass transit.

Now imagine you have a huge vacuum and you could suck out all the pollution from all the cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic in LA, all the smog that hover over Phoenix every day (and all that cow-stench that pervades Chicago still).  And you’d never have to re-vacuum again…

Sometimes I wish we hadn’t achieved Manifest Destiny.

Of course this idea will never happen, but it’d be awesome if it did.
