renewable energy driven floating city

a floating community of houses you say? What could possibly go wrong? how ambitious is this plan, that hopes to power the whole city by solar and wind. I particularly like the part about the underwater basement. you could not pay me 350,000 pounds to live there. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5655457/The-FLOATING-pyramid-city-Community-live-solar-powered-350-000-buildings.html

My basement doesn't flood unless my sump pump is broken :) but there is just something super scary about living quarters that rely on the structure to hold to keep you from drowning, trapped in a watery prison of doom as the last bit of air leaves your lungs and is replaced with water.

Kudos on the whole renewable thing, though.

Lots of passengers sail underwater on huge ships. Actually it is the calmest ride on the whole ship.
