Sustainable City | Fully Charged

26845 ratings | 770915 views
We spent an amazing day at the Sustainable City, a housing development in Dubai with 3,500 people already living there and it's still not quite finished. This truly is a remarkable achievement, a stark lesson to building contractors the world over. It's not more expensive to build and it's hugely cheaper and more efficient to live in. Inspiring sustainable city planning! Spread the word if you know any builders! More Info: http://www.thesustainablecity.ae/ Support the show on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/FullyChargedShow

I'm quite impressed by what they've accomplished. Now if we could just get one of these cities in Arizona or Colorado...

You will have to start by voting for people who promote this sort of thing rather than those who only think of themselves or the USA and refuse to see further than today.

+LMLMD why would reverse cycle air con be better? Everyone in Australia has those, and it's absolute shit at warming houses up. Basically, it's only warm if you're in the direct path of the air coming out.

A nice place to live in. If the houses were more different from each other and if there were some more cultural places like squares with cafés, fountains, and banks, it would be perfect.

Now this is what I've long time advocated!! ANY new build should meet stringent environmental and sustainability tests and be encouraged to tap into low cost maintenance contracts with homeowners. Just think, council tax could be reduced to virtually zero if a building site dealt with waste, recycling and communal spaces in an environmental, ecological & sustainable fashion. The current crop of UK housing developments are scandalously wasteful & damaging enterprises. Low in build cost, low quality, low brow design, yet high in financial returns, highly polluting and highly uninspiring.

As a reluctant US citizen, I have to say it's more and more obvious every day that in this country we're literally decaying at the seams with some of the Very Worst "sense of importance" in the entire whole world, and it's Only getting worse and worse with every decision our pathetic leaders(and citizens) are making every single day...Then you see something this amazing(always knowing its very possible, if you had half a brain anyway) and being completely blown away by how perfectly they have everything planned out and executed for the Actual betterment of humanity's sake, while MOST Americans are worried about the local McDonald's speed of service times...smfh!!! :(

This is a beautifully constructed example of greenwashing. A lot of the buildings in Dubai are constructed by workers who have been tricked into abandoning their lives abroad, to chase a high paying job in Dubai, only to find themselves as slaves working enormous hours for next to no pay at all. This all happens in very poor living conditions. Dubai should be ashamed of itself and the way it has come to be. Nothing sustainable about it.

Cities in the north can utilize wind and water, in the south sun and wind this is actually viable for the whole planet. It's only the ones that have to gain from selling fossil fuel that is holding the world back. Much like the religions held science back for hundreds of years because they would loose followers (like it is happening today). Amazing show. Again. Keep spreading the word brother. This is the true word that will save us all. Save the planet-save ourselves.

If you're interested in UV or IR reflective paint check out Solcold. The paint takes advantage of a phenomenon called 'anti-stokes shift' where the atoms of a crystalline lattice are excited by IR photons and the energy is released in the visible spectrum resulting in a negative net energy causing the paint to actually reduce in temperature.

Gummmibaer (10 days ago)
it looks pretty nice. But still there are some open questions: Is it a private area (gated community) or is it open to anybody? Are low-income people able to afford this neighborhood? Why does everyone need a villa - suburban sprawl is not sustainable. What about public transport? I think they created a well designed neighborhood from an energy-perspective. But it looks like a golden cage for rich people, which is problematic.
Niclas Lindén (10 days ago)
Nice. It is quite interesting though that you would have that extremely many solar panels to power the town, while just a few simple Free Energy (zero point energy) devices could have done the job a 100 times better. And also with free energy devices every single house could have their air condition on for 24h a day year in and year out without running out of power at all. This technology has existed since the beginning of the 1900s, but unfortunately the power elite in the world are making sure all this technology is kept away from the society. All because the power elite would loose their power and control over their slaves(the people) if it came out. And they do absolutely not want that. We have all the technology for free energy that could run the whole world forever, but are forced not to use it. Quite ironic isn't it.

A bit like hamster cages. All look the same, mind control programming. Dubai the experiment. I feel for the poor folks watching "Disney" UN take over. I thought everything in Dubai was fancy and upscale and out of reach of normal working people. UN planned sustainability is also population control and separating families. I hope you can make that dream a reality without lab grown kitchen meals!

Absolutely amazing! '
Great project. Very good thinking. However, Global Warming, now called Climate Change because real scientists clearly show the earth is not warming, but nonetheless the end-game of globalists is to force a carbon tax upon the citizenry. This will be done through technocracy for the people, and the same old plutocracy for the elite. When I hear the buzz words 'we are working hard to reduce our carbon foot-print' it lets me know that the propaganda and global corporate media is effective at its brainwashing (social engineering). Do independent research folks and you will quickly find out that Climate Change is a political hoax. I'm not saying that this wonderful project is without merit, only that we can do the right thing based on fear, which is the wrong reason. Climate change is predicated upon policies of control and deception. Just like vaccines are predicated upon policies of eugenics, and profit. Prove me wrong, I challenge you!

I love these ideas and that some places actually have the money to build a test city years if not decades before it will ever return a profit so we can study and learn from these designs and ideas to reduce our impact on the earth. The one thing I that would keep me away from a place like this, is overcrowded public spaces. Just like a national park or a city park, pool, etc. they can some times burst at the seams, like these photo links below: https://imgs.6sqft.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/03131332/sheep-meadow_crowd.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_bcPJXkrJqvo/S_rd63kMtvI/AAAAAAAAGHM/LDFU4vNlcw0/s1600/IMG_0255.JPG Correct me if I am wrong, but these test cities like this, are far from filled to capacity. So of course when you tour it, it's nice and quiet, not very busy, but is far from a ghost town and that's very attractive. It ticks all the boxes for just about everybody. But once every condo/villa is rented/bought, the place will look akin to those pictures of parks packed with people and pools so overcrowded. Maybe it's too much to ask, but if I would support a sustainable city, I would want my residence to be quiet, I would want my parks and pools to places of escape from the residence to enjoy sunshine, relaxation, and friendship, without feeling like I am one of a million sardines stuffed in a can all in the same of sustainability.

One step at a time. I lived on a cabin boat for years. Every payday I got something else. Solar panel, regulator, trolling motor, Marine battery, water conditioning and purifier - got it all just the way I wanted it and then they put me in a wheelchair. Thought of everything but a chair hoist. Point is: plan/design and spend for the little you can get it for - one piece at a time.

I'm surprised that they didnt incorporate any overhangs or awnings in the middle of the streets as he mentioned in summer time tempatures rich45 Celsius that's hot as hell, and the sun in daubie is stronger than that in Arizona. Especially with no shade being provided and those trees obviously don't provide shade in the open walkways of the community. Suprised with all their Eco Ingenuity didn't come up with that idea.

Robin Thomas (20 days ago)
These community cities will probably be very desirable where everyone's participation will sustain the opperation of the city. However, to be fair there must be a place in the society for those of us who do not wish to live in a city or so close to so many other people in an artificial environment, though, beautiful in an artificial way. At least as long as the natural environment can sustain the people wanting to live in a natural setting, I think we should take advantage of the opportunity to do so with using all the abilities we have to impact the environment as little as possible in a negative way.

When the plan starts with the right ideals then the results are marvelous, all the techniques employed are just basic simple stuff. Didn't see any litter or dog mess the whole place seemed to be peaceful and stress free. The greedy mega rich just keep churning over the same ideas, get every fossil fuel possible and carry on regardless. Another benefit is that a lot of the infrastructure is localized and sized accordingly, just magnificent.
