Don Jose, like I said before I don't know if they found a city or not ( in Honduras ), with the little bit of information that they have made available on line its hard to tell. They were defiantly looking for headlines with the claim that they found Ciudad Blanca (the holey grail of Lost Cities), and one has to wonder what that motivation is all about. My guess is that someone is trying to get someone else to bankroll an expedition.

The only way to ever know for sure would be to get some boots on the ground.

That makes at least two of us John! It will be interesting to see how close my estimation of the location turns out to be once they release the exact location.

Ahhh...technology!
In the article they keep talking about 'deforestation' and how awful it is that the landowners are clearing the land for grazing, but much like areas in the US that no longer are used for agriculture, much of this area had to have been cleared and used for agriculture to support the population of the cities. Most of the NE US was used for crops, -Pennsylvania was at one time 90% cleared of trees- but when lands opened up farther west that were much more productive it was abandoned and allowed to grow up in trees and brush. Rocky ground and thin soil caused much of the westward migration.
Soooo...Tommy...wasn't much of the area that is now jungle formerly cleared without causing the total environmental disaster that folks threaten us with now?

The major theory that scientist argue today concerning the fall of Mayan civilization is that they radically changed the environment by clearing and burning the forest to build these ancient cities. This combined with war and droughts eventually lead to migration away from the cities leaving them abandoned to be reclaimed by the jungles that rapidly returned. Keep in mind that their are still millions of descendants of the Maya living today, most living in small subsistence communities throughout Central America.

Think about modern civilization today, if a cataclysmic event were to happen today to say our national transportation system and all commerce were to be eliminated to any region. It is estimated that in less than three days all commercial food supplies within a given city would be gone. within days of this personal supplies of food would be consumed and in less than a week the population would start to go hungry. This would force a mass migration away from the cities as people go in search of food.

re: Catastrophic effects of basic services interruption-
In William R. Forstchen's novel "One Second After", it pretty much tells us that we are screwed and explains how...well...it's a great book, Here's a synopsis:
