As Reported by CNN

By the year 2050, about 70% of the world’s population of 10 billion people will be living in cities, according to the United Nations.

The question is, will there be enough land to go around?
Not according to Jason Pomeroy — founder of Singapore-based green architecture firm Pomeroy Studio — who believes that due to climate change and rising sea levels, humans will be forced to build on water.
“Water accounts for two thirds of the Earth’s surface,” he tells CNN. “We need to think about new methods of urbanizing to accommodate population growth.”
