Every once in a while it's nice to pretend. Personally, I'm still a huge fan of building fake cities in Maxis games and making everything as beautiful and sustainable as possible. But Greenpeace has done me one better, in their marvelous Flash Application: The EfficienCity.
Take a tour of what a real sustainable city would look like, complete with wave power, combined heat and power plants, high speed rail, and (if you look really closely) Smart Cars.
The city gives you information on all of these beautiful sustainable aspects of itself. You can zoom into the city and learn about wind power, small-geothermal power, bio-gas, solar, wave, wind, and tidal power. The amount of informating hiding in this little city is staggering.
If you want to give yourself a little tour of what it is to be an EcoGeeky city, this is a great place to start. But don't dive in if you don't have a few minutes to spare. It'll suck you in.
