We plan it this way

Today, only 16% of schoolchildren in the US walk or bike to school, similar to the UK. Ray Ison was in Marin County, California, last week where he heard a thought-provoking keynote speaker speaking about the influence of the planned and built environment on public wellbeing, who argues that the

modern America of obesity, inactivity, depression, and loss of community has not ‘happened’ to us. We legislated, subsidized, and planned it this way.

Yes. If only John Prescott, the lying-low UK Deputy Prime Minister, was at the same event as Ray. Prescott has been a flag-waver for the Thames Gateway housing development to the east of London that’ll drown with rising sea-levels.
