Supercities On, Under, and Beyond the Earth: Housing, Feeding, Powering, and Transporting the Urban Crowds of the Future

As more and more people inhabit the Earth and live longer on it,Super Cities, will explode with populations of 20, 30, even 100millions or more. But how will these cities accommodate suchmasses? Who will build them and where? How can they be sustainedand their inhabitants provided for?Here, Jeff Dondero imagines the super cities of the future andexplores the ways in which they can be sustainably built, howtransportation will move masses of people without cars, how peoplewill be fed and where waste will go, and how we will move to citiesunderground, under the sea, in the atmosphere, into space and on toother planets. It describes some of the smart systems for buildingsand homes and some of the new ways food and materials enough forsuch masses will be supplied.Will super cities be the answer to our bursting population? Andif they will, how can we best sustain and supply them? Donderooffers suggestions and a blueprint for the future.
