Berlin is Becoming a Sponge City

Berlin is becoming a “Sponge City” designed to tackle two issues – heat and flooding – by imitating nature.

  1. In China, they use air-conditioning to keep the Streets cool. We're doomed! We have nothing to match them…

    Berlin is a green hell. New construction is almost non existent and what is being built is regulated to hell.
    And people still scream for more regulation…
    If we keep going in that direction, we will be overrun by progress and those who lead it.

  2. My word I've always admired German Engineering now they going up to another level by Bio genetic engineering stored water systems for entire cities. Make UK look a real DUMP.

  3. That fact that Berlin was built on the large flat swampy northern German plain, one of the rainiest spits in Europe probably has nore to do with its long history of chronic flooding over the past 1000 years it's existed than any alleged "Climate change" hoax.

    Plus removing storm drains definately didn't improve the situation. Berlin is wet, rainy and cool, so removing the city's storm drain infrastructure to increase it's wet, cool swampiness seems idiotic. That might be a great idea in dry arid cities like Cairo or Phoenix or Karachi, but not in Berlin.

  4. How about Berlin stops wasting money on making their city cool and start using money to fix the refugee’s homeland so they can go home I’m done with this bs this problem is not urgent unlike Europe collapsing due to the refugee crisis
