    To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

      Yep, light pollution. Suburban sprawl is always on an amateur astronomer's mind.  :(

      There's quite a few ways for cities to reduce skyglow: Shielding light fixtures and/or reduce color temperature. Suburbs tho, I doubt much progress will happen there as most folks like to light up there houses like prisons.

      Obesity is an interesting one. I didn't think it would be related to how a city is developed. :mlp_huh:

      It’s generally because suburban communities are usually too far away from most services in general to be walkable. If the only option is to drive to literally so anything, people are going to walk less. When there are more services and options for public transit within walking distance, people will use it. While correlation doesn’t always equal causation, it’s a bit noteworthy to point out that obesity is more common where cities sprawl more, and East Coast cities, which commonly have less sprawl, have less obese people in general.
