    Anthony and David…keep up the good work! As Anthony’s Fresno Calif. granduncle, I was fascinated by your in-depth presentation as I recalled my year (1956-57) in Coyoacan (Mexico D.F.). At that time Mexico City had a population of approx. 3 million enduring eye burning smog. Given the demographic implosion of Mexico to the capital, it would be great if your concept for the ‘tower’ is adopted in some form to bring much needed relief to the city of today’s 30 plus million.
