    Rob! I was thrilled to see this post on beBee! Welcome! I'm an environmental scientists by education and am always looking for new 'Green' Thinkers here on beBee. I enjoyed the article tremendously. I would add a benefit to be had from greening your company is that it creates opportunities. As more and more countries seek to decrease their carbon footprint and improve environmental conditions they will look at a company's sustainable practices when granting contracts. Companies that are 'going green' will take this into account when choosing vendors and contractors. When all else is equal; the 'green' edge may be the ticket to business growth. Again, welcome to beBee! I've already followed!

Tourism, after all,is our number one source of revenue.

    The headline is misleading. Water seeks its own level. What the article actually says is that a COMBINATION of rising water level AND loss of land is resulting in the likelihood that downtown New Orleans will be underwater by the end of this century. I am no expert, but my understand is that it is already below sea level -- as are major parts of Holland -- which is why it is protected by levees. So I guess the upshot is that the rising ocean levels will make it impractical to continue protecting much of Louisiana which is already below sea level.

    #1 I'm not surprised New Orleans residents are pretty concerned. I passed through 34? years ago and noticed the mean height of most real estate was only 20' to 30' above sea level. Now as a high plains resident who has spent most of my life between 3 & 6000' I always thought it pretty brave to build homes that close to the water. At this point it won't be long and they'll be drinking their bourbon with water, like it or not.

    @Pamela L. Williams, maybe you're right, we won't reach COP 100. Those who survive have to live inside hermetical plastic bulbs.
    Despite I'm a man with its feet on the ground, I still believe in humanity who want to come out of this misery. They just afraid to loose their hard earned money. The problem is that by being inactive we all loose our money, due to increased illnesses, that at one point governments won't have the means to pay for us, either via the social security or even our pensions.
    I'm offering the ultimate solution to these problems. If you know, or anybody who reads this article / comment, who would like to invest in such a city (I'm already talking to certain authorities), please advise me on smart.city@itvfg.com . Thanks.

    You're right Vasco, people are apathetic towards climate change. Today I was hanging Christmas lights (LED of course) and I noticed my neighbors' rose garden was still in bloom. I walked to my back yard and I too had blooms on my rose bush. The dormant stage has yet to begin, which should have been in October. Smart cities such as yours will be necessary if this planet is to survive. Unlike you , I don't believe we will reach a COP 100, because at that point there will be next to nothing this planet can do to recover, we are already past the tipping point. It will be about surviving, not healing a broken planet.

    Hi @Froilán Pérez , thank you for sharing the Madrid situation, I think when you force something it is never the best approach, it would be wiser if Madrid comes out with an initiative where involve the whole population and not only one segment like the students, here in Japan due to the culture, recycle is a serious thing and it is so well implemented that the whole population plus foreigners like me , even do not question anymore , it is pure common sense and the right thing to do for those who live here, going back to the Madrid case, one thing that could work well, would be incentive to do the right thing, to have well developed garbages that incentivate people do the collection, for example image a garbage bin that asked you who is better Real Madrid or Barcelona and people wold place the cans or bins in one of the two holes (Real or Barcelona) to answer the question, one score board above the bin would keep track of the score ... just one idea that already exist in other areas, check inside of Grendz.com (search recycle) and you can see what I am talking about here #1

    Hey @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝, I have some thoughts on this topic you shared:, and maybe they should be a full and elaborate Proucer instead of a comment on you buzz, but let's say this is a draft:

    The crazy Madrid mayor we have now wanted to make students pay for their subsidized education by making them clean up the street after a botellón. (botellón is when people drink in the streets, usually in parks or plazas. A dirty habit we spaniards have, taking advantage of our good weather. it is mainly practized by students who cant afford to drink in bars or dont have a flat to do pre-drinking)

    In Germany, there is no such problem.
    First, because students move out of the parents house when they finish high school, and can pre-party in their shared flats (WG's) without littering the streets.
    Seconds, like in the picture from Norway you buzzed, there is something called "PFAND", where you get a cashback when you hand in plastic or glas bottles back at machines or supermarkets.

    To get back to my crazy mayor, instead of forcing students to clean the streets, just impose a small tax on the bottles, and they will "magically" disappear from the streets).

    (and no, I am by no means pro taxing stuff, but this method works)
