Wouldn’t living in small self sustaining communities like we used to be better for the environment?

    no, what will be better for the environment is by developing green technology and eco-friendly solutions that correlate with our modern society

    Perhaps but how many of those communities create the amenities you take for granted today, like the computer you're using?

    No. 

    If we abandoned technology we would be invaded and taken over by the Chinese and they are far worse polluters

    Actually, NO.  Pretty much any serious environmentalist will tell you that living in dense cities is better for the environment.  People in dense cities can take advantage of economies of scale.  If we all left the city to live in small communities, we would have cut down ALOT of forest to make room for all the people leaving their high rises and dence urban areas.

    No, it'd likely be worse since dispersed communities would be completely unregulated. One community could dump all its waste into the ocean as long as it flows far enough away that it only negatively impacts another community.

    Not really, as we already have those we just called the extended suburbs, or exurbs.

    We don't have a world human population of 100 million anymore. Things that could work, albeit poorly, at that scale won't work when the population demand is 70 times greater.

    And, denser population centers than exurbs allow for better economies of scale in providing all sorts of services, from power and water, to making more around one's home accessible by walking, rather than by some form of motorized transport.
