Given the fact that technology advances at a exponintal rate we can and will become advanced enough to do more then save the environment in our lifetime. So we can look at Califnoria and study what they did right and wrong so when we grow we can grow smartly. The next 20 years will be amazing and I want Colorado to be on the leading edge not living in the past hoping the growth somehow misses us.

That's a pipe dream Josseppie. Your optimism is to be commended, but reality is painting a very different picture right now. This is speculation, but looking more and more likely by the day, but when the United States of America defaults on its national debt in the not so distant future, do you really think we will have the money for this Utopian sort of lifestyle?

I know it looks like blinded optimism and that is what I thought when I first heard it. However to go into detail as to why would really be off topic for this thread so instead I will post a link to a thread that talks about that very issue in the science and technology forum.

Why hasn't the Singularity gone mainstream (yet?)

Sadly that's quite true - just as California is fairly conservative outside of the I-5 Corridor. Unfortunately it's not as simplistic as Mike would like to portray (move to Pueblo or COS) when Denver essentially votes for the whole state.

That is true in any state as the larger cities tend to dominate politically.

Pueblo and Colorado Springs are different and both help control the state, politically speaking that is. Its kind of like the northern versus southern I-5 corridor in California.
