James, such a well deserved story for you! Your work is genuinely unique and always welcome. Plus, it's just damn fun!

Enjoyed the article and the video. Here's to many more soaring adventures and smooth landings

NONSENSE!!!!!
James isn't done! This guy has initiative and drive and has caught the fever of exposure to skyscrapers!!!
Looking up brings out the best in men!
Looking at the bumper in front of you sucks...notice the positive thinkers in this forum. They are flying airplanes, living where the tall buildings are, and looking up.
The negative ones are living in traffic, looking at bumpers, or pretending that there is inspiration to contribute in a tree or a lake!
I love Emerson, but he doesn't inspire anything but introspection and selfishness! Fine, but cities are conducive to sharing, and these pics are great for that.
Thanks James. Hopefully those that don't get it...will get it. Let's go in on a Saratoga!!!

You lost me at Emerson, who is he? And if you love him so much why do you talk bad about him? But all in all I agree with your post Congrats to James, what an awsome acomplishment. And I am envious of those whos comments on the forum got put in the paper

Emerson as in Ralph Waldo...Naturist, etc. I'm sure you know him.

I went to Emerson College in Boston---where we wanted people to think we were named after Ralph Waldo but in actuality it was the Emerson air-conditioning family...

So your saying your against lakes and trees then? There needs to be more skyscrapers so that there CAN be more lakes and trees, we NEED more lakes and trees, and the only way to get them is to urbanize and get ride of suburban sprawl. I even heard that ppl wanted to cut down alot of the Amazon rain forest to build lama farms, this disgusts me, this is what will bring about global warming, this is what will cause a total self destruction of the earth, do I sound crazy? good

Urbanization is a good solution to slowing suburban sprawl, but it will never result in the transformation of a suburb into a forest. Also, urbanization and suburban sprawl (which technically is a form of urbanization) are not the greatest threat to the rain forest. It is slash and burn farming that destroy the most rain forest. Because rainforests support such an immense amount of biomass above the ground, the soil is actually relatively depleted of nutrients. So rainforests prove to be poor farming lands. After the first couple crops the land is completely infertile and will no longer support rainforests, or any trees for that matter, until it can make the ecological succession from weeds, lichen and moss to shrubs and then trees.

DGM,

The way I've always seen it is that Urbanization is a continuation of sprawl because you are urbanizing land that previously wasn't considered urban. Urban Growth means to revive land that is already considered urban by adding density or creating some sort of urban renewal like project. In either case, you're right, urbanized land will never revert to its previous form...You're also right about the forests, the land is useless after a few seasons...
