Global warming, glocalization, sea level rise and unexpected weather changing are the future for human in 2080. The land on earth shrinking continuously with rising sea level and temperature. New York is not any more attractive city because of the sea level rise. Natural disasters affect the whole globe. Population grown up rapidly, so more residential spaces are needed in shrinking landable area.
Again, infra structural age starts to spread out in the whole area of the earth. There is no meaning of country border among countries. Like an European nations in 20 century, all countries ally and share their materials such as foods, buildings and even infrastructures each other in 2080. Most lands should be refigured to accommodate people and materials move efficiently with new vehicles.
Reclaimed land can be used for agriculture and foster animals. Ocean such as tidal energy provides infinite energy with human in the future. Thus, people depart one point and return the same point in a day. They encounter very different environment whenever they arrive the next station. More and more, individuals are considered as the public.
