today in the morning we talked about the consequences of global warming like for example the rise of water surface which will make a lot of people in India homeless.
In this moment I remembered an idea I heard some years ago called “floating home”. This is no longer an idea, today -it became reality.
The first time I heard something about this kind of house in a report about the Netherlands where they tried to find a solution for their future problems.
In Germany this solution seems to become a new lifestyle but I guess it is still important to understand how this idea looks like in reality.
Because of my bad English I would like you to look at www.floatinghomes.de – and no panic the language of this German website is English. You will find three types of houses and their descriptions along with some pictures (for more pictures: www.stern.de/wirtschaft/immobilien/immobilien/:Floating-Home-Das-Haus-Wasser/563968.html).
In Dubai, you can find another example for new biosphere creation.
I know that these islands are only for rich people but this fact also shows us that we are able to create new biosphere for ourselves.
But I’m not sure if this example is positive or negative for the environment. First of all, this isn’t a natural place so there is no natural ecological system. And another point is that we take away a part of the ocean and we don’t know yet if this will entails other negative consequences.
Finally these are some new ideas explaining the fact that we are able to find solutions for everything if we want!!!
