Pixel Planet Today's post

Urbanism is a dream for many activists. Being able to walk, bike, and take public transit to your errands would cut down on emissions as well as the ecological footprint of our cities and suburbs. Some issues are only exacerbated in urban areas, but if the goal was to create as large of a wildlife reserve as possible, how big could it be? . Fact: If the world's population lived as densely as New York City, the megacity would be about the size of Texas (the overflow could fit in the Oklahoma panhandle). Texas is huge, but condensing humanity into one state would practically turn every continent into a national park (minus the area of Texas for whichever continent would be our home). Of course, this is an idealistic look at global population (it wouldn't account for food supply, resource collection, urban heat islands, and a laundry list of other factors) - but the message is clear: down with suburban sprawl. . 🌎 OTHER THINGS: We're kicking the year off on a good note! We just sent out the New Year <little-bytes> newsletter, so be sure to check your inbox. These winter months have been a little quiet, but not in regards to project progress. Yes, we're still working on Wasted Space; yes, we're hoping to have the beta done by Earth Day; and YES there are beta tester spots open (if you're interested, just give us a shout)! A lot of the basic game functionality has been fleshed out, so now we're getting into the fun stuff like recycled ship part upgrades and enemy waves. If you haven't signed up for the newsletter yet, you can sign up either on the Pixel Planet Today website, or the Terrabyte one. (You can also access the Archive of past newsletters after signing up). . . Read more about the population density of New York City (the article is out of date, but gave us the idea to do up-to-date math ourselves!):

The factoid reads: "If the world's population lived as densely as New York City, the megacity would be about the size of Texas." . Pixel Planet Today is created by @Terrabyte.
