Description:

This paper looks at how the government's preference for private transportation over public transportation bodes ill for the environment. The author believes that there is conclusive proof that a bias towards private transportation promotes urban sprawl. This, of course, promotes extensive deterioration of the environment and greatly increases the size of man's ecological footprint. The silver lining of this ugly cloud, though, is that efficient public transport systems can still be developed to curb this growing problem. Sprawl, ironically, may provide the necessary impetus to reduce the appeal of private transportation and eventually make public transport systems more efficient and competitive. This is but only one reason that a government's preference for private transportation over public transportation bodes ill for the environment. This paper will provide clear arguments to further support this assertion.
