City planners must oppose fare-free urban transit

People looking for solutions to climate and energy can be easily attracted to radical-sounding proposals or comments from city planners.

The actual path back from the brink of biosphere meltdown is public transit, and the fastest way to go is by making it fare-free.

But public transit is a threat to growth and profits. These profits are not real though, they are backed by massive subsidy, not the least of which is the sacrifice of the biosphere.

Anyone in the business of city planning will lose their job if they do not actively oppose fare-free public transit.
