Green gimmicks always fail. But like all leftist policies, that just means more money has to be put into making them work.
The SeaPod, developed by the ocean-innovation technology company Ocean Builders, was meant to be the first of many pieces of “revolutionary blue technology,” the company’s mission statement says, meant to make “the 72% of the world that is covered in water into an eco-sustainable paradise.”
The ultra-minimalist home has an 830-square-foot living space divided into three levels, featuring all of the home essentials including a bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and space for storage.
It doesn’t state how many of those 830-square-feet are actually underwater.
At its grand unveiling on September 22, a futuristic luxury model home meant to float on the water toppled over in front of an audience that included Panama’s president, Laurentino Cortizo.
According to Autoevolution, local media covered the unveiling of the prototype but neglected to mention, for lack of a better term, what truly went down at the event. Naturally, though, videos of the collapse surfaced on social media shortly after:
Environmental measures never fail. The media just doesn’t cover their failures and then unleashes fact checks to explain why they never failed.
Ecoparadise will have to wait another day. Or a million or a billion.
