My choice would be CDMX or Guadalajara.

I'm sure I'll love DF when I visit later this year. Guadalajara is on my list of travels also.

GDL is the second largest city. Birthplace of Mariachi and Tequila. It's considered the most culturally Mexican of all cities. The people are cool and the climate is perfect. They have a lot to offer. The food there of course is spectacular. It's a very diverse place. A gringo will be approached as though he is a native until he starts to speak broken accented spanish. There are mountains, lakes, and a nice drive takes you to the Pacific coast.

How's Mexico if you decide to bypass Passport control, ignore their laws and demand free stuff?

You'd probably have to work in the service industry and constantly run the risk of deportation. I think a lot of people who claim they're going to move to Canada or Mexico from here are probably either thinking of doing it legally, though possibly under request for asylum? I remember reading a news article about someone trying for that going from here to Canada, though I don't remember what the outcome was.

I think you were originally asking why people say they're moving to Canada, but not Mexico. I believe that question was answered and it's basically because it's not quite true in regards to who is actually moving where since more move to Mexico than Canada and that the language barrier is a real consideration.

There's some promising research on ways to efficiently remove CO2 directly, but nothing quite proven out on a production scale aside from the obvious like plant trees. Right now, the US is having a difficult time with the dialogue of even reducing CO2 emissions (and for those machines to work, you need to remove faster or as fast as you emit, so you're likely going to need to reduce CO2 emissions to a large extent as well) or agreement that it's a goal at all.

The problem with a carbon tax is that it will hit consumers directly. You need to drive large companies to innovate, not punishing mom and dad taking their Ford Explorer to the store.

Free market, though. If you make the cost of owning that Explorer too high, people will stop buying them and look for something more affordable with less emissions. As that market expands, car manufacturers will see that the money is there and not in the Explorer-style market. In order to draw buyers back into that market, they'll have to reinvent that sector of the auto market.

While I don't agree that everything should be dictated by free market capitalism alone, you have to look at the other side of capitalism. If you argue that the free market is able to adapt so freely, then why can't it adapt to people being priced out of owning an Explorer?

Good luck with that. Isn't Guadalajara a nexus of the drug wars down there?

In a sense, yes. It's where a lot of the major players are from. But day to day life in the city of Guadalajara is vastly safer than life in some of the border towns and outlying rural badlands where the trafficking actually happens.
