What we have to wrestle with is that the urban-suburban divide is too great.
Bike lanes, for example, are supported by most downtown councillors in their wards, but they usually can't get done because those who drive through those wards coming from the suburbs don't want them there.
As for the whole 'wasteful according to whom' - wasteful according to the experts that have done all the necessary calculations to know that if we all used such large amounts of resources your grandchildren would be ****ed. I'm an environmental scientist, so I'm very familiar with the data that's coming in, and I'm very optimistic.

Because actual data is totally irrelevant, right? Hahah.
I request a ban for the troll.
