What do large corporations plus excessive population add up to? Global warming and rising tides. Have not the intensity and frequency of earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes increased over the years as population has increased?
Large businesses don't just bring in an employee, they bring in the whole family — crowding those people out who were raised here.
Tall and/or closely built structures cut back on the amount of sun that can enter the living environment, which results in more use of our natural resources, raising utility bills for all, and makes it more difficult for those who want to have a garden.
What is the solution? Two elements are: Stop bringing people in from distant areas for jobs, and support family planning. It doesn't matter how much affordable housing is built; if the population continues to rise, so will our environmental problems and probably health problems too.
