Thanks for a great site spacedoubt!
Although I applaud the 'technology', I don't think it is fair to say that it can be fully self-sustaining. The article doesn't talk about social
isolation and how it can affect people. It also doesn't answer the sustainability question, like how long do batteries last that store the solar and
wind's energy. (I believe the question of the lifetime of batteries to be a limiting factor for sustainable energy at present)
Another limiting factor may be the fish farm idea- it looks like you would have to have alot of technical support to make it work- I would like to
know what breed of fish do they suggest, how to breed fish, what to do with fish waste- etc...
I find it fascinating that they have come up with a system for 'taking water from the air and soil'. The air well idea looks like a promising
prospect for sustainable water versus the deep well-energy hog pumps. I have read about air wells before, but dismissed them as not being able to
produce enough water- but with factoring in the greywater and human waste as well- it does look like a good solution.
All in all, I find very little to criticize- which means it passes the 'accountability' test
