18-11-2013 TEDxTalk Rutger de Graaf online

This week the TEDx video of Rutger de Graaf was published online. In this video he is talking about the need of floating cities.

Most of the bigger cities in the world are located along the coast. Every day around 150.000 people move to the city. This means that in 2100 4.5 billion people will live in cities. Combined with an ever-growing consumption this means an increase in farmland of 100% already in 2050. Land is lost due to the sea level rise and more land is needed to produce bio fuels. Eventually this means a future land scarcity of 22 million square kilometres, the size of North America.

The solution to this problem? Seventy percent of our planet is water. A lot of cities are located along the coast. New cities can be built on the water and use the waste products of the coastal cities to produce food and energy, for example in the form of floating algae farms.
