Good heavens, of what uncostly material is our earthly happiness composed... if we only knew it. What incomes have we not had from a flower, and how unfailing are the dividends of the seasons.

Study:  Sprawl In Florida


Florida's phenomenal population growth has been the No. 1 factor in the state's urban sprawl, according to the results of this study released during Florida OverPopulation Awareness Week (October 29 - November 4, 2000). In fact, in most Urbanized Areas of Florida, the amount of land per resident did not grow at all, indicating that growth in percapita consumption was not a factor in any of the sprawl in those cities. Rather, the volatile growth of Florida's population outweighed the sprawl effect of all other factors combined suggesting that antisprawl efforts in Florida must also try to limit population growth in order to be effective.
