Let's discuss how we could update and redesign our global infrastructure and cities, as well as building new ones, in order to better utilize the latent global energy available. Thermal/kinetic/wind/water/solar energy into electricity, and built into our infrastructure and cities. Can we utilize biotechnology? Nanotechnology?

>What would be the hardest parts of this process? It is too costly to redesign the old? Should we just build elsewhere? Maybe even in space or other worlds?

>What should these new infrastructure/city designs be like? Are there certain geometries or naturalistic patterns we can mimic to make our structures more efficient at weight bearing, flexibility, etc? Something out of Stark Trek or the Venus Project? The word "ecopotia" comes to mind here.

>Can it be done before we succumb to environmental collapse in the next 10-100 years?

>What will have to be changed socially, culturally, economically for these changes to make a meaningful lasting impact on our world for the better?

Try not to be assholes in this thread, let's get some good ideas going, show us /stem/'s got what it takes. SLAYER

also think of this, what if every mega corporation that relies on the interstate trucking system spent just portion of their distribution budget on, collectively, funding a mass automated transportation network, of goods and/or people. im fucked up and this might be a dumb idea but im throwing it out there

Centralize populations into super cities that are as environmentally friendly as possible eg. Urban forests. Let the Flora & the Fauna regenerate. What does it require? Humans wanting to live together & not in there area of choice. Also all countries working together. So take that as an easy or a hard thing.

I like this idea a lot. Eliminate suburbs, but make cities VERY livable. Good mass transit and walkable neighbourhoods. You need good quality, accessible housing stock and good parks everywhere.

the obstacle here is that our society is governed by corporations and states not by human interests

One could argue that corporations are an expression of human interests, but I think by using a profit-driven model, fueled by the ideology of capitalism, which wrs upon the supposition of infinite growth, corporations actually tend to work against LONG TERM human interests, only really giving temporary relief to human life through short term pleasures.

Plan for far fetched futurue, yes, there are patterns, patterns that help people think, patterns that make city effective.

Geometrical structures, that are more optimized than grid.

We are already having troubles with enviroment, and when ice is gone, it can release some gas from the ice to atmosphere, no more melting ice as it gets warmer, change will be faster when Ice melts...

We already are out of time.

Think eco friendly for the masses. Maybe sustainability had to be number one issue since beggining of human race, but its hard to tell money about that.
