Is it not the case that there is a direct, positive correlation between urban density and its carbon footprint? Is it not the case that as Menlo Park's housing and therefore population increases, we make an ever larger contribution to greenhouse gasses, consume more resources such as water and power, increase vehicular traffic, and through development construction itself utilize energy-intensive construction materials and burn larger quantities of polluting fossil fuel?
