"I'm not an engineer, but how is it that a modern wood-framed or brick house would be beyond destruction by some well-skilled workers with the right tools and skills. Folks like the Mennonites seem to be getting by without much fossil fuel for a while, no?" thompsmr

And why do we have to rip them out at all? If the world sees $3-4 a litre gasoline many things can and will change. Perhaps more people will telecommute? Maybe the burbs will be forced to become more livable with a wider variety of zonings? Maybe people will just buy electric cars or ride mopeds?

Why does the author assume we will be tearing down suburbs when gasoline hits $3 a litre? Frankly that is a pretty ridiculous statement.

This article has some okay points (e.g., Hamilton is well situated) but too much of it is biased, speculative, clap-trap.
