Stated simply, the goal should be to increase the population of existing population centers. That may be complex to implement and achieve but nonetheless desirable and attainable. Not only does achieving this goal result in the benefits that Mr. Hall mentions of decreasing the use of pristine farm and forest land, it accomplishes other goals. It will reduce air and water pollution by using less land per person. It reduces car travel in the larger sense thus reducing air pollution to say nothing of lessening the frazzled nerves of long commuters. In addition, by adding more people to our population centers, it adds more people to man the oars of improving our education system and reduce crime in those population centers. More working middle class people in these population centers will at the very least statistically improve the results in these two areas.
