It's always struck me that by this point, we (humans) should be protecting what national park land is left of the planet and instead look to make better use of the available land in cities and towns, i.e. through building better sky scrapers etc.
So it's a shame to see the US continuing to sell off parks: https://www.theguardian.com/environm...ement-chaffetz
And recently the UK is selling off green belt land across the country for more homes.
What do you think? Is it necessary to build more houses laterally across green and / or national park land or is the only way up?
Do we still need to sell off national park land for buildings? Watch

It is ironic that the green movement is creating a larger demand for houses in rural areas, and thus helping to destroy the environment.
People don't realise its actually greener to live in a city than to live on the land.

It would probably be best to start with brown field sites within cities before moving into the green belt.
