Our prices for rent will become unaffordable, we will see crime rise, prostitution, drugs, our small time police force will fail to see the influx of gang activity. Our nature will be stripped. Then when our water is poisoned, trees cut down, and our soil stripped of all nutrients SI will be as baron as a landfill.

You are not ready for what you seek, that wealth is already here. We own the last strip of oxygen producing trees left in the Midwest. Look at google maps satellite of the Midwest .

have you ever read stories from the 40's where the water then was flammable. This isn't just recent discoveries. It's always been that way.
