How Cars Are The Apex Predators – Medium
If aliens were watching Earth, they’d think cars were the apex species. I mean, just look. If they looked down, this is what they’d see:
Road, roads everywhere. 20% of the earth’s surface is within 1km of a road, and the rest is vivisected into 600,000 pieces, most of them tiny.
Where there aren’t roads, there’s parking.
Parking, parking, with no one there. In LA there’s more parking spaces than human spaces (housing). As Strong Towns says, “parking is the dominant physical feature of the postwar American city,” and this car cancer has spread all over the globe.
Aliens can see it from space.
