I got goose bumps while watching this.
Now, imagine for a second, that we could take just the US (that’s right, start right here at home – a novel idea for sure) and build an infrastructure that connected every major city via rail. Then begin to build those major cities into megacities by increasing access to local and regional public transit, increasing incentive to build vertically (need to address city planning big time) – can anyone say “GENIUS”!? We could house more people in less space – OH TO DREAM! – leaving more room for farming, nature preserves and whatever else you can think of.
