@Icalasari Hmmm, I'm not familiar with that... Are you talking about a specific event/city ?
The bottom line is we are currently building the equivalent of 8 New York a year, maybe there is some over-building, but I guess overall those cities are built because they need to be (people are leaving rural areas to go live in the city). I don't think that the problem is we're being wasteful (well it's certainly a problem, but it's not THE problem), I think it has more to do with :
1) Overpopulation
2) Living in enormous cities isn't sustainable in the long run. It only works because we have "unlimited energy" (through fossil fuels) right now.
