Not yet. Give a few years for Global Warming to catch up and I will be.

It may be efficient if you factor in the value of land in a major city... and if you had to factor in carbon offsets for transporting food from rural area to urban area.

This is a necessary first step on Earth's evolution to becoming Trantor.

Right. Then you'll need these airconditioned towers to grow carrots most places above the water line without them catching on fire.

Watch where you're saying there, buddy. I'll have you know, carrots got my family through the war!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think those vertical gardens can support trees...


But being in the carrot business, I know vertical gardening could produce some orange gold, just not enough to for me to invest away from my own very lucrative farm.

That picture is pretty hot. Though I guess one could ramp it up given the props in use.

Just one of my many employees, her name is Sylvia. Great worker. She brings in about 10,000 head of carrot every day. Ironically, she was imported from Singapore.
