As more people inhabit the Earth and live longer, Super Cities, will explode with populations of tens and hundres of millions or more. Jeff Dondero imagines the super cities of the future and explores the ways in which they can be sustainably built, how transportation will move masses of people without cars, how people will be fed and what will be done with waste, how we will move to cities underground, under the sea, far into the sky, space and on to other planets. It describes some of the smart systems for buildings and homes and some of the new ways food and materials for such masses will be supplied. The author believes that super cities are the answer to our bursting population, and how can we best sustain and supply them, and offers suggestions and a blueprint for the future.
