Love Among the Eco-Ruins

“Grandpa … What are Those Towers?”, blogger Cjunk asks at Small Dead Animals:

“They are eco-ruins, Sarah.”

“What’s an eco-ruin Grandpa?”

Well my little darling, let me tell you a story:

I don’t think I’ll mind Eco-ruins. It will be fun to point them out on hikes with kids and explain what it was like back in the late 1900’s. “The best part kids, is that they thought they were smarter than everyone else. They would get so mad if anyone said different. Look at their big schemes now. Every time you pay the government, just remember that its to pay for these rusting monuments.”

In the meantime though, as Robert Bryce writes at City Journal, “It’s time to stop wasting land and resources in the name of environmentalism,” and “Get Dense.”
