Eco-socialism in one city almost a possibility

Linköping, Sweden — The Swedish town of Linköping — with a population of more than 100,000 — is planning on building a near eco-friendly conservatory called Plantascraper that will make the town self-sufficient in food production.

The conservatory will be a 17 storey glass building that operates on automated machinery such as conveyors that will transport pots and vegetables that will move rotationally to the top of the building to ensure optimal exposure to sunlight.

The designers of Plantagon think that production of means of life will be less of a burden to the environment. The conservatory will cost less energy than a regular conservatory due to its use of residual heat. Transportation over long distances will also no longer be needed.
