In an otherwise upbeat article in the Brisbane, Australia Bay Journal on a visit by John Kasarda to extoll the benefits of aerotropolis development around Brisbane Airport, a sidebar titled "Raining on the Parade" quotes yours truly making a different case.
Before quoting from my July, 2005 article "A Real Transport Hub", the sidebar's summary paragraph reads:
In the burgeoning industrial centre of Hamilton, Ontaria, Canada the city council has voted $100m to set up an "aeropolis". The problem is that this means that less money can be spent on bolstering other forms of transport infrastructure that it has invested in. Some think that this is a mistake because of the looming world-wide oil shortage.
Is organized resistance to aerotropolis development really so tepid that they're quoting me?!
(Thanks to Kieran for bringing this to my attention.)
