"Here it comes"
Now's a great time to write to your elected representatives and encourage them to get busy funding public transportation, sustainable power generation, energy-efficient building, and national rail. If the U.S. and other oil-dependent countries don't get their shit together, might be our cities looking like that in a few years. I don't think anyone can say "It can't happen" anymore.
