Sustainability and good governance... with a little bit of bioremediation mixed in.
The Green Gap
In the Cold War, we feared a Missile Gap was a strategic weakness. Nowadays, we must awaken to the fact that the Green Gap is true strategic weakness: the nations whose economies will thrive in the coming years will not be those with the biggest factories, but those with the most sustainable, efficient, and ecological markets. What we require is a Strategic "Green Reserve" of ecological design to weather the coming changes that both climate and resource scarcity will force on the international economy.

I've been enjoying making greenhouse layouts lately. Mainly they are just fanciful.
But some are reasonable.
I'll keep at it for now. Designing the water flow in aquaponic systems in order to minimise the number of pumps needed is kind of fun.
