Use Star Trek Tech to save the world
Plasma tech waste disposal, water recapture and smart solar paneled streets can provide energy, clean water and offer economic opportunities
EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA
On the international space station all water is recycled and turned into drinking water. A similar system could be installed in central locations and clean water dispensed. See video https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=2&v=BCjH3k5gODI
All trash could be transformed using plasma tech as shown in diagram above. "Using the Plasma system of waste disposal would offer tremendous benefits. The main differences between a simple bonfire and a waste incineration plant are: 1) the waste is burned in a closed container at extremely high temperatures (to destroy as many toxic chemicals as possible); 2) pollution from the smokestack (chimney) may be trapped and "scrubbed" clean before it's released (using an electrostatic smoke precipitator); 3) a very tall smokestack is used, (theoretically) to disperse any remaining pollution in the wind; and 4) the energy released by burning the waste is captured and used to boil water, drive a steam turbine, and generate electricity."
The streets could be lined with the newly designed solar capture panels that would provide all their energy needs, cleanly and greenly. See video for info https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlTA3rnpgzU
These systems work.
All the people living on the planet. People everywhere would have access to clean water, be encouraged to recycle all trash and waste by being paid per pound. It would also be a motivation for people to keep their cities clean and litter free because all litter would have a cash value and provide fuel for the plasma system. The solar streets would provide all green energy and diminish carbon output dramatically.
HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
Most governments are currently working on developing these types of systems. If we lived on a spaceship, all these systems would be in place. The technology already exists and can be implemented anywhere. The cost is affordable. It takes regular people to join together to put these systems in place. It is a realistic solution.
