Sprawl is the Death Of Us All

Here is a great little film calling sprawl and suburbia the single biggest threat facing the world, which many would consider a bit of an overstatement. But judging from the money that is being poured into highways and into auto makers, one would not even think it was a problem at all. Great stuff, the winner of a contest sponsored by Congress for the New Urbanism, via NRDC

It was an interesting idea as a buildup to the New Urbanism convention coming up in June- the best video earns the film-maker a pass to the conference. Definitely the best of the lot.
