"The goal is to create a harmonious coexistence of humans and nature."
I find this quote hilarious. The creator of these things wants to create a harmonious coexistence of humans and nature by building humungous, floating masses of metal and glass for humans to live in while these masses drift around the ocean. Where does nature factor into this? These things seem to separate humans from nature more than bring them together.
This professional bubble gum hippo deems the idea a big lump of dumb.
Did you read ANY of his first post? This "dumb" floating mass of metal and glass Is entirely Eco-friendly and gets its energy from the environment.
"With a central fresh water lagoon acting as ballast, the whole construction would be carbon neutral utilizing solar, thermal, wind, hydraulic, tidal and osmotic energies.
With high density populations living in low-lying areas -- The Netherlands, Polynesia, Bangladesh -- the ecopolis, its creator believes, could be the answer to mass human displacement that global warming is predicted to cause."
That sounds pretty Nature-Oriented to me.
