5 Myths About Suburbia and Our Car-Happy Culture - washingtonpost

The writer was on a roll debunking the myths about our supposed overcrowding
and dire air pollution until he gets to item 5, and then wanders off into the global
warming argument.  Global warming is really unrelated to pollution, especially
when you consider that we have worked hard in the last 50 years to reduce
our pollution, very successfully as the writer points out in the first 4 sections.
1. Americans are addicted to driving.
2. Public transit can reduce traffic congestion.
3.We can cut air pollution only if we stop driving.
4.We're paving over America.
5.We can't deal with global warming unless we stop driving.
