Nothing new

I was expecting more from that. And I don't know why cycle paths and railways were put aside, as well a sustainable urbanism, like both business and urbanism are incompatible - I f this is true, I believe that capitalism is just renewing demagogic theory but the environment will be still in danger... as well the human being.
