I strongly believe that in my lifetime and that of my children, you will see a re-urbanization of America and an expansion of infrastructure services in more compact and limited areas, while at the same time seeing a drop in rural and suburban populations as the costs of living that life style continue to increase.

So long as the most crucial worldwide resources remain limited and demand for them continues to grow, at some point basic economics will force us to adopt new ways of doing things.
yea this is a basic summary of what could possibly happen. There is definitely room for more error in this country, but with the self realization that the U.S. now has over its own behavior only allows for the people that are going to be most effective for the due changes to rise up.
