Edit: that sounds like Buckminster Fuller, and it wasn't him.
I picked a quote that captured his style without using the most pertinent one.

""There are over 2 million cars standing in front of red lights with their engines going. Then we have over 2 million times approximately 100 horsepower being generated as they are idling there, so that we have something like 200 million horses jumping up and down and going nowhere."
Buckminster Fuller.

Ok time for a clue.

The writer of the quote was well known at the time for being associated with another form of transport that was well streamlined.
