Gold never goes to zero. It's a store of value (like land) and it can be used as medium of exchange for large purchases like land. It's more portable than land, but it's more finite and eternal than cigs and whiskey. I even think whiskey would be plentiful with all the moonshiners.

For those of you in CO and those looking for a reputable company to purchase wares from - I really like http://www.theaquaponicsource.com - I had a chance to meet and talk with the President and she gets it.

Check them out!!!

Great wares, and great knowledge. Their kits look great too.

Efficiency is great, but rarely does the most efficient technology scale. A bike is vastly more efficient than a car (and in many cases not much slower), but will never, ever replace the functionality of a car.

What you have to demonstrate is whether or not this tech scales. We've talked about this before.

it scales super well, if it didn't the ford foundation wouldn't be looking at putting 50k acres under glass in detroit.

there are challenges, but it IS realistic.

I suggest you play with some smaller hydroponic systems to understand the concepts.

You couldn't do 1,000 hectares of wheat with this concept, but it certainly works as a piece of sustainability at the household level. You could also include a few chickens and ducks (compost their droppings) and goats for milk and cheese (and weed eating). Rabbits are extremely doable too. Beef is on a whole different level of production and cost. I'd love to have a dairy cow, but that's taking the cost, and labor, up another notch as well.

For greens & small fruiting plants (think cherry tomato) - it is very applicable.
