    Currently we have more food on this planet than what we need. Its just not distributed fairly. Growing food in vertical farms is a good way to give land back to nature. Used in african steppes and deserts it could help feet that continent. Solar energy exits in abondance and less water is needed. The african continet has more resources than the others. The proplem is, that the others plunder it.

    I really love this.
    This will help for future population when there is less land for agriculture due to population growth. I predict that it will be used wisely in nearly 2090.

    additionally I would imagine you could charge more for the vegetables you got off the top , they're top tier…

    It's just a demo. No indoor farm can actually compete with outdoor farm, and we haven't seen one credible competitor yet.

    This is just another way of controlling the masses by controlling food production. I like my food grown out side although I too do vertical farming.

    This is crazy, while the US teaching people to recycle waste (good thing) they don't tell you that they sell the garbage for millions, yes millions and you don't get a cut of the profit. LOL< they even charge you to pickup the recycle from your home and then they sell it.

    funny, reduce the impact on the earth,bullshit , its all about saving money and charging a premium. I guess they don't know how electricity is produced and all the materials used. Newark NJ is a dirty ass city, I know I lived there.

    Sometimes when I think and reconsider a long-long time, then I see we, humans are the aliens of this planet. We haven't had a plague in over 25 years, see the latest plague cycles, I hope we grow some understanding before that's possible to happen but, we are fine and we're fucking this world to a soil that can only grow methane. Destroy your individualism, we are getting so fucked

    Crap, I have heard many'such 'exciting' stories purported as solutions to food shortage whereas in reality they are nothing but money-making schemes or controlling- mechanisms employed by the Imperialist-killer-machine known as the colony of USA.

    The reporter missed stating explicitly the number of times the average crop can be harvested per year.

    Plastic= Cancer…growing food out of it. I don't know. Doesn't look good to me.

    Mega watts of electricity. Verses the sun and fresh air.

    Grown with air conditioning fans and lights that use huge amounts of electricity. Not to mention the tons of waste nutrients going down the drain and into the river and ocean. And being restricted to size of plants. It would take building taking up half of the city. Just to supply grane for the daily bread need of the city.

    when I see a farm like this, it only grows pechay and lettuce….and lot of leaves, how about our need for corn, rice, fruits, vegetables?

    Grow on plastic instead of soil and they never see the sun? No thank you. I Don't take it even for free.

    Is it profitable that's the only thing that matters. I doubt it is

    i`m sure they dont put in those plants all the nutrients the soil have and human body needs. They will look good but only because they contain a lot of fertilizer. no magnesium, selenium, iron, crom, zinc, etc.
