As for the suburbs (and I'm not talking about Federal Way or Kent; I'm talking about the suburbs), I refer you to this excellent document. And what is it about? It's about the only realistic future there is for you and your lifestyle. Also read the section: The History of the Buffalo Commons Movement. Are you feeling me? We are not talking about a growth economy but a restoration economy...
There once were over 400 million acres of wild prairie grasslands in the central part of North America. The backbone of the Buffalo Commons movement is the work — over a period of decades — to re-establish and re-connect prairie wildland reserves and ecological corridors large enough for bison and all other native prairie wildlife to survive and roam freely, over great, connected distances, while simultaneously restoring the health and sustainability of our communities wherever possible so that both land and people may prosper for a very long time. Future generations may choose to expand these reserves and corridors, as the new culture of caring and belonging we have started today becomes an integral, ingrained part of life in the world of tomorrow, especially as extensive grasslands become needed to help absorb carbon from the atmosphere. (Highly biodiverse native prairies are excellent carbon sequesters.)
