In this interview Jerry and Robert discuss Robert’s WorldsNest
research center in Taos, New Mexico, his prototype sustainable
housing system that produces its own energy, recycles its own waste,
fuels its own vehicles, and grows its own food. He explains how each
component of the “living building” works and how the built-in
rainforest greenhouses produce water to keep the system going.
Built from recycled materials, they are designed to withstand
hurricane-force winds, earthquakes and fire and as remarkable as all
this is, they are also designed to be built cheaply, pre-fab and on
small lots, so Robert discusses his plans for revolutionizing
third-world housing and potable water problems as well. He also
discusses his program for “taking water from the air” in
drought-stricken areas for agricultural uses.
