Thank you for these links! The article about possible diamond oceans and icebergs got me thinking about what it would be like to have oceans made of other substances that are difficult to liquify, and what their shorelines would look like.

And it's very encouraging to see such brilliant ideas for sustainable architecture as those mentioned by Urban Omnibus. I am currently a student learning about sustainable architecture, so it's exciting to see the effects of Ed Mazria's 2030 Challenge taken seriously, and to see a new kind of design boldly and responsibly emerge.
