CONTINUED FROM POST #2 10. has been proven through scientific replicated peer reviewed research and infra-red heat maps to reduce, (and if enough people got on board eliminate), the urban heat island effect, 11. creates a relatively stable indoor temperature year round regardless of climate that would reduce energy needs to a single-story structure such that wind and solar should be able to effectively meet the needs of the entire required usage without grid attachment, 12. inclusion of a green wall system in companion with the green roof system creates a relatively stable indoor temperature year round regardless of climate that would reduce energy needs to a multi-story structure such that wind and solar should be able to effectively meet the needs of the entire structure usage without grid attachment, 13. future designed and built environments would include these technologies to create a sustainable planet where there is no need for grid electricity subject to solar flares (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=373629) as well as a future not laden with cancer causing radiation from fuel leaking nuclear reactors. (www.enenews.com) (The life of Plutonium is approximately 240,000 years. It's daughter products will be around much longer than we will. Now, is the time to start to allow the proven method of landscapes that literally clean the air to start their magic. i.e.: The Amazon and the pine forest at Chernobyl.) Incidentally, the above referenced technology currently exists. I have developed, tested, as well as had independent scientific peer reviewed verification and publication of said technology and patented an approach that has been proven to do all of the above. I would like to engage and collaborate with the TED PRIZE team. I would also like to incorporate previous winners of the TED prize into my wish for The City 2.0. CONTINUE TO POST #4

CONTINUED FROM POST #1 Method to create my wish with the above referenced features for The City 2.0: 1. utilizing the technology of a five pound per square foot (or heavier if so desired), green roof system that could be retrofitted on any existing structure with any slope, 2. would allow the green roof flowering plants to purify rain water and utilize the toxins in that rain water as nutrients to grow the plants, 3. naturally purifying the rain water would allow that water to be used as potable water within the building structure, 4. the excess remainder of the purified rain water not harvested for building use would reduce the amount and toxicity of runoff into the natural environment thus reducing major flood events caused by our currently engineered drainage systems, (Tropical Storm Allison flooded the majority of downtown Houston in 2003. If each single family residential structure in the affected area had a total of two 50 gallon water barrels retaining the rain water, the flood event that caused more than one Billion dollars in economic damage would not have occurred.) 5. the excess remainder of the purified rain water not harvested for building use would reduce the amount and toxicity of runoff into the natural environment as releasing the excess purified rain water would also reduce the dead zones in our waterways and oceans, 6. utilizing composting technologies to eliminate waste stream products and utilize those products in the on-site landscapes would reduce landfill space and waste water operations, 7. allows for the creation of potable water out of thin air in arid regions, 8. allows for the growth of nutrient dense food on the structure reducing energy transportation from off-site food producing locations to right above a person's head, on the roof or on the wall, 9. allows for the replacement of lost natural habitat, 10.

The City 2.0: An Evolutionary Revolution While the concept of clustering people into 'small but tall' community 'pods' as espoused in Agenda 21, (UN adoption by resolution, circa 1992), and visually in the movies such as Zeitgeist and Gattica, I believe those cities may be built for the future; however, we also need to address the current living conditions we have at the moment. My TED wish to change the world features an ideal mind, body, soul, and construction solution to The City 2.0 where: 1. the houses, offices, shopping places and entertainment locations create their own power, water, nutrient dense food and reduce or eliminate effluent and toxins leaching into the environment both by retrofitting current patented technology on existing structures while building the future modular and scalable concept cities with these patented technologies at the fore, and; 2. an environment that is given the opportunity to heal itself while still accommodating the enlarging population and their engineered built environment. (We are not going to raze our existing cities until we have built a place to put the people and we cannot do that without costly infrastructure - unless the places we build create our infrastructure for each location thus allowing people to be self reliant and less of a strain on the natural environment. i.e.: Tokyo is facing this problem right now.), and; 3. individual tastes in art and architecture are still valid and can be seen in The City 2.0 while being able to accomplish both of the goals in item numbers 1 and 2. Method to create my wish with the above referenced features for The City 2.0: 1. utilizing the technology of a five pound per square foot (or heavier if so desired), green roof system that could be retrofitted on any existing structure with any slope, 2. would allow the green roof flowering plants to purify rain water and utilize the toxins in that rain water as nutrients to grow the plants, 3.
