Kunstler slams Atlanta, the location of the conference, saying, "If the Devil created an anti-city, a place where people would feel least human, Atlanta would surely be that place."
Kunstler says that the New Urbanists proposed their solutions before climate change and peak oil were even issues.
He writes, "The great achievement of the New Urbanists was not the projects they built during the final orgasm of the cheap energy orgy. It was the knowledge they retrieved from the dumpster of history. We really do know where to go from here. Whether the people of the USA have the will to take themselves there now is another issue."
