Self-Sufficient Sub-Biosphere Designed to House 100 People Under the Sea | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it
Phil Pauley's Sub-Biosphere 2 is a self sustaining underwater city for 100 inhabitants.

London designer Phil Pauley is a modern day Jules Verne who has spent the past 20 years designing an underwater city . For Pauley, Sub-Biosphere 2 is a viable structure he hopes to see built in his lifetime. The self-sustaining, futuristic biosphere is designed to house 100 inhabitants underwater, and it’s the latest in a slew of projects that aim to ease housing shortages for a growing global population...

Une utopie ?

Un lieu de curiosité et de villégiature temporaire ?

A quel prix environnemental ?

Il nous reste aussi des réserves de créativité pour construire des logements pour tous à terre.

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

The Harvard Graduate School of Design released its Ecological Urbanism app last month. The interactive app adapts content from the GSD book of the same name, which explores how designers can unite urbanism with environmentalism.

Combining data from around the world, the app “reveals and locates current practices, emerging trends, and opportunities for new initiatives” in regard to the future of cities.

A collaboration between the school and Second Story Interactive Studios,the app stems from the GSD’s Ecological Urbanism conference and dovetails with the duo’s ongoing efforts to explore sustainability in our cities of the future.

New Report issues a warning about humanity’s ability to survive without a major change in direction

New Report issues a warning about humanity’s ability to survive without a major change in direction | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

2052: A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years, by Jorgen Randers, launched by the Club of Rome on May 7, raises the possibility that humankind might not survive on the planet if it continues on its path of over-consumption and short-termism.

In the Report author Jorgen Randers raises essential questions:

 

The Report says the main cause of future problems is the excessively short-term predominant political and economic model. “We need a system of governance that takes a more long-term view”, said Professor Randers, speaking in Rotterdam. “It is unlikely that governments will pass necessary regulation to force the markets to allocate more money into climate friendly solutions, and must not assume that markets will work for the benefit of humankind”.

 

AN : some critical analysis of our current use of the world's resources is being addresssed here. Valuable and clarion call for concern and action.

A Scientist Predicts the Future

A Scientist Predicts the Future | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future. Their accomplishments and dreams are eye-opening. From my conversations with them, here’s a glimpse of what to expect in the coming decades:
