Oh so, all of the thousands of cities around the world that I can actually see online using the same resources as every city in the USA are just fake news.
I had no idea the conspiracy was that intricate. Those damn Koch Brothers.
Multiplicity is a thing. This is not 1993 and your statistics do not reflect reality.
In 2018, every hour this human culture changes, and sometimes drastically. That’s where we are with climate, with habitat, with population and with resource usage.
You can throw stats at me all day however reality is the videos that you can actually see of today on this planet. Do it for yourself. Type in Tokyo, Sao Paolo, (like omg that’s a big city,)Moscow, New York, Lagos, Sydney, Dubai, and on and on. Tell me the difference.
But to be totally clear, don’t stop there. Go to YouTube and explore the lesser cities all over the world. Those too are all the same. Spend a few days doing this. There are literally thousands and thousands of cities around the world all building from the same resources in 2018.
This will multiply quickly as the population grows.
Multiplicity and habitat meet at this juncture.
