Smart Floating Farm
- Hypothetical Timeline: 2030 to 2050
There are many who feel it is only a matter of time before the Earth will see its land overrun by the consistent build-up of water. Of course, this is not a crazy assumption. Water has been moving inward for centuries, even before we had a climate crisis. That said, we’ll need to be prepared for if and when this happens. This is why the Smart Floating Farm has been getting a lot of attention. Keep in mind, by 2050 we’ll be over 9 billion people worldwide.
This means food production will need to increase by up to 70% the rate it is at now. Without land to plant on, we’ll have a global food hunger crisis. The Smart Floating Farm concept comes from a company that uses that exact name. They have proposed a 2.2 million square feet fish farm, hydroponic garden, and more. Complete with solar panels on the roof to power it all. It could then be anchored to sea beds in oceans, lakes, and rivers. With the right funding, this is how the future might look for food production!
