Telosa - The City that will Save the Planet?

 

Telosa, sustainable urban development

In 2021, billionaire Marc Lore announced plans to construct a city called Telosa that would have the capacity to house millions of residents. Lore assembled a diverse team of economists, visionaries, and innovators to make this city unique; if his plans work, Telosa will lead the world in sustainability.

What is Telosa?

Telosa is a city currently in the planning process, with the goal of "creat[ing] a new city in America that sets a global standard for urban living, expands human potential, and becomes a blueprint for future generations." The city will be built in Arizona, Nevada, or Utah and will cover 150,000 acres of land.

Telosa's many sustainable qualities include an advanced water recycling system that could mitigate the effects of draughts caused by climate change and even provide water for neighboring towns, a robust renewable energy system with the goal of producing more energy than the city uses, and a tremendous amount of green space with greenery incorporated into the architecture. A global energy crisis coupled with worsening extreme weather due to the climate crisis has sounded the alarm for a speedy response. Telosa could pave the way to a more sustainable future.

Could Telosa Work?

Marc Lore's goals are ambitious, and considering the fact that his team aims to house residents by 2030 despite not having a set location, great cooperation will be necessary to make Telosa a reality. Obviously, so much can go wrong with a project as large-scale as constructing a city from scratch, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. Time will tell if Telosa will become the great city that Marc Lore envisions; if it does, other cities will have an example of what sustainable development looks like.
