The time to act is now. Life-threatening global environmental
problems and limitations on resource consumption demand a restructuring
of cities and transportation systems worldwide for long-term energy
efficiency and conservation. Concerned citizens in every community - in
every city, town and village - must get involved in formulating and
implementing new land use and transportation policies and practices,
preserving agricultural lands and open space, and reclaiming natural
habitat.
