Aerotropolis, the next Manhattan?

As a nice (or sad) comparison to Cleveland's EcoVillage, Salon.com has posted an except from John Kasarda and Greg Lindsay's new book entitled "Aerotropolis, The Way We'll Live Next."  The authors' forecast of thriving cities to come revolves around . . . airports (the largest source of GHG emissions for many universities).  This might be taking transit-oriented development a bit too far.

Thanks to Stetson Law School student Ashley Donnell for pointing this out.

If you are interested, Metropolis also did a story about it last month.
