These videos quite concisely expanded on various sustainable attempts that are being carried out all around the world through infrastructure and other means. What was really interesting is the amount of technology that gets to be implemented in such huge scale projects and regardless of the amount still allows independence within units and even in certain videos allowed houses to remain off the grid. Although it amazes and inspires many of out current polluting cities to see such projects being able to come to full scale and provide and productive place without harm to the environment. What could truly remain discouraging is the amount of money and the cost as a whole of these solutions, many may be impressed by such results proven by such projects however, due to the current state of our economy few are willing to sacrifice and invest this much into something that doesn’t directly affect them yet.
