Ed Ring, Ecoworld

(May 8, 2012)  Ed Ring, Editor and CEO of Ecoworld, opposes Smart Growth for environmental, aesthetic, and economic reasons.

Articles at Ecoworld do not necessarily include their authors.  It is certainly possible that Ed Ring was written many of the articles under the “search” function for the key words “Smart Growth” (in parenthesis) on the Ecoworld web site.  Here is the link that appears with these search parameters:

This article on “New Suburbanism” demonstrates how Smart Growth and New Urbanism are not green – http://www.ecoworld.com/energy-fuels/energy-efficiency/principles-of-new-suburbanism.html.  In describing the essence of “New Suburbanism,” Ed Ring (?) writes:

“At its heart, New Suburbanism is the necessary counterpart to New Urbanism as it has become, constrained as it is by an imbalanced, unnecessary bias towards high density.

New Suburbanism gives back to our cities and towns their freedom; gives us abundant land; gives us affordable homes; gives our cities turned suburbs turned exurbs the unforced, organic, natural and easy transition from dense to sparse.

If New Urbanism defines the aesthetic of our new and renewed cities, than New Suburbanism helps define the aesthetic interface between city and country; it gives us back the smooth transition from urban chic to country soul.”
