How the Cookie Crumbles
17 September 2014 |
I recently watched a documentary called, “Life after People.” It uses sophisticated software to simulate decay of cities showing how nature will reclaim the places we live and work if Earth’s human population dropped to zero. This made me think about how much work and money it takes to keep the places we call home from crumbling around us. It may have been significantly easier to maintain cities with three-story buildings and the streets were cobble-stone. Now we have subway systems, access to running water, electricity, roads, and one hundred-story sky scrapers (or at least some combination of those).
So I went on the hunt to find what the Knowledge Network has to offer in the field of infrastructure. Here are some of my findings:
What is your local government doing to keep your infrastructure up-to-date and well-maintained? Share it with us below. Also, ask and/or answer questions on the Knowledge Network.
Have a great day!
