I have always thought that moving all of society underground and/or into the oceans in order to return the land surface to nature would be a good
idea. While doing this, the growing of food and specific plant species within the structure will create the oxygen needed and depending on what
species of plants an artificial atmosphere can be created by allowing the plants to cycle the water through both cleansing it and replenishing is as
needed. The restructuring of used resources to rapidly replenishing plants can eliminate the need for certain minerals. In example, Hemp. Hemp can be
used to make plastics, plastics recycled 7 times is lighter and stronger than steel and can replace our need for building materials without returning
to the land mass surface.
Here are a few setbacks that must be addressed in order to make this happen.
1. Crops, whether for food, oxygen, and/or resources must be rotated in order to replenish minerals into the soil. Thus a much larger area is
2. Air purification and ionization still rely on coal. Therefore mining is still a necessity at this time.
3. Earthquakes can collapse underground cities and dislodge underwater cities.
4. Underwater cities create displacement. The more there are the less land mass is intact.
The positive application is energy. Ocean currents can be used to generate the energy needed in underwater cities. Geothermal can be used for
My idea is defining anti gravity and creating "Floating" cities and leaving the surface completely(minus farming/ranching). Upper atmosphere currents
can be used for energy creation as well as from the electromagnetic sphere. Oxygen is provided. Larger plant areas are no longer needed and farming
can still be done on the surface and oxygen is not needed to be recycled. Water can be harvested from the atmosphere leaving the water on the ground
to cycle as usual. Cities that are smaller but connected through through-ways at a high enough altitude would not effect the Sunlight reaching the
surface. Again, by using 7 times recycled plastic you have a stronger and lighter structure stabilized by gyroscopes.
The separation of the human race, by individual choice, could incorporate all three ideas and promote commerce,without the destruction of the planets
surface allowing nature to thrive.
