HRTLND – TRANSPORTATION
HRTLND is a carless, moneyless, global, Type 1 / Resource Based Economy (RBE) civilization for all mankind. It once and for all, brings order to a chaotic and unequitable planet. It combines housing, farming, transportation, energy, manufacturing, water supply/treatment, wastewater treatment, food service, entertainment, recreation, and other necessities into one comprehensive system. It is defined by 3 basic components as follows.
1. Idealized cities (URBs), laid out on a 5 X 5 mile nominal grid. The URBs are self-contained with utility endcaps. Electrical substations, water treatment, and reservoir to the North. Wastewater treatment to the South. Biomass / recycling to the West. On the East side is a temporary construction staging area, rail maintenance / stock yards, concrete batching plants, and livestock grazing area.
2. 23 candidate global campus sites. URBs are configured in a mat and served by a network of umbilici (rail, power, water lines) that tie into a main, industrial, power spine. Spines terminate at major port facilities. Resources and materials are shipped in, to feed said campus. Present-day Argentina, Somalia, and Ukraine, to name just a few.
3. Policies and constitution as supporting compendiums to points above.
