Hi, I'm Neil deGrasse Tyson, and today I'm taking you on a tour of The Cosmos.
The Cosmos is a environmentally sustainable city run by Lanna Read and Sebastian Verpaalen.
The Cosmos generates its energy through a huge turbine system in the river next to the city, rotating solar panels on the edges of every buildings roofs, and wind turbines outside of the city.
They produce their food by growing it on their rooftops. Through this they generate better insulation and save land space. They have a system where people can sell their extra food back to the public.
Not only does the clean and healthy air that The Cosmos promotes through the use of renewable resources help the environment but the city is very localized, reducing urban sprawl and leaving the environment outside the city to itself.
The dam that generates electricity was placed as close to the ocean as possible to reduce downstream ecosystem effects.
