UN: Half the World Soon to Be in Cities

LONDON (AP) - Most of humanity will be living in cities by next year, raising the threat of increased poverty and religious extremism unless the needs of growing urban populations are met, the U.N. said Wednesday.

Some 3.3 billion people will live in cities by 2008, a report by the U.N. population agency report said. By 2030, the number of city dwellers is expected to climb to 5 billion.

I was watching an interesting program on TV about cities. There is this wonderful vision of building up instead of out a city and that the cities will be a whole building of itself with views of trees, rivers and green just outside a window no matter where you are.

Lets face facts there just is no money, time or energy to build such a dream. It will only come when Jesus comes and the New Jerusalem will be our home on the New Earth.

It will be the great city and the great earth that God made, not man.

New Jerusalem may be our home on the new earth but I still intend to spend a lot of my time in a log cabin up in the mountains  :)

China plans megacity with 42 million people

What do you call nine separate cities in China that happen to be located near one another?

A megacity. Specifically, the biggest megacity the world has ever seen, with some 42 million residents.

Urban planners in southern China are evaluating the feasibility to merge nine metropolises that lie in the area around the Pearl River Delta, according to a new report.

The devil is binding the souls of men to these large cities. The UN is happy as are all of the "greenies". They do not want man in the country, but in the city.
