cities and civ

> but for more than half of the world's population, "proper"cities will remain their habitat for the next decades and "the built environment" (whatever flavor of civ you got) is increasingly the main environment humans get to live in, to explore and get to know, or even be familiar with.

In places like the UK even the least densely populated areas, far away from London or Edinburgh etc, still function as cities. England is essentially one giant city, with the occasional pocket of gated forest interrupting the sprawl. In this context, the idea of 'desertion' seems nigh impossible, unless the British author of Desert means desert Britain for, say, southern Europe or the Americas.
