* RURAL NEWS * Fight back against rapid sub-urbanization with Google Earth!

Google continues to change power & playing fields with its technology. Finally there is the potential for the small guy (rural folk in place or heart) to fight against the ever-invading desires of developers and over indulgent capitalists. Sprol.com is an amazing example of this as the site documents the "Worst Places In The World" via Google Earth.

You can see industrial destruction, strip mining, poisons, and many more enticing atrocities. Using the same concept we did a quick search to find the worst sprawl in America and found the intriguing images you see here. If you want a better way to classify sprawl we recommend
A Field Guide to Sprawl. Go & find land use atrocities near you!
