Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Of course I would love to see composting toilets used everywhere, but at THE VERY LEAST, we must stop flushing our toilets with drinking water. That we do not already have a law requiring a third pipe for greywater use in toilets for all new construction is a complete eye-twitch inducing mystery to me.

    Lots of great thoughts here--whether "half-baked" or otherwise. Seems like a lot of you are interested in the single-family home. I definitely recommend you checking out this guy: http://www.archinode.com. He's one of my favorite "(re)designers" in the issue.

    How about a City? When was the last major city founded? We need to next generation city. No cars, mass transportation only with everything being "clean". Lot's of fiber everywhere, a place for true technology to grow. Incorporate your ideas for the single family home there and there you have it. Financed by: The Railroad Pension and maybe some Air Carrier, since the only way in or out is clean rail and maybe air? Bullet train to the nearest metro area. This just made me think of it again :)

      There is right now a need to rebuild the Varosha district in Famagusta, Cyprus. It has been held as a captive ghost city for the last 39 years by the Turkish army. When the day comes that it is finally freed, the whole city will have to be rebuilt from scratch.It will never be abandoned because the beaches there are some of the most beautiful and pristine in all the Mediterranean.

      I'm part of a team that is dedicated to seeing this city rebuilt as an wholly sustainable eco-city. It is a very exciting project and there is a lot of discussion surrounding it right now which is making us very optimistic about it actually happening.
