The private auto, whatever it burns, is a wasteful consumer product

Taking Parking Lots Seriously, as Public Spaces - NYTimes.com: "As the critic Lewis Mumford wrote half a century ago, “The right to have access to every building in the city by private motorcar in an age when everyone possesses such a vehicle is the right to destroy the city.” Yet we continue to produce parking lots, in cities as well as in suburbs, in the same way we consume all those billions of plastic bottles of water and disposable diapers."
