Orwellian Waste Power Anime

Given the last post (scroll below) I couldn't resist putting up a link to this outlandish Korean Anime. From the trailer for Aaschi & Ssipak:
"In a future that’s all too easy to imagine, the world’s familiar energy supplies have dwindled, the global economy has broken down, and cities have collapsed –- only to be rebuilt again around a daring new energy source: human feces. It has become every citizen’s duty to sit on the toilet as often as possible. ... But powerful forces have conspired to create a feedback loop of passive compliance in the citizenry."

Hopefully we are headed for better times than this! [via Fantasia]

This is a blog for news and views on the future of sustainable cites. A major revamp is in the works. Until then I am keeping this version up as an archive of my past writing.

You can expect occasional updates, but not with the same frequency as in the past.

You can also find my writing on urban redesign and sustainability in ReNew Canada, The Mark, Sustainable Cities Canada, WorldChanging, and other more specialized academic publications.

Info on my consulting work, c.v. and current research focus is all here.
