But this is a big problem. It's like the poll in teh Chicago area that showed massive support for mass transport, but the same poll ask some sort of question about whether you would actually use it, and very few would.
But, there are ways we can systematically change the drivers of sprawl like by making it cheaper to finding housing in a city, or more desireable, and making it less desireable to live in the country. Like increasing gas prices. I know, that's a pipe dream.
But, I agree, this public relations problem that high density has is a huge problem.
I'm curious - how many of you that are advocating high density urban living are actually living there? And how many are living in suburbs or rural places?
