Why a billionaire thinks he can build a sustainable city in the middle of the desert
The Arizona desert could be the home of a new, proposed sustainable city.
Billionaire Marc Lore wants to build his city, called Telosa, which he envisions as upwards of 150,000 acres, using environmentally-friendly architecture and a “water system that is resistant to drought.”
He hasn’t picked a spot for it yet, but Arizona, Nevada and Utah seem to be among the possibilities.
Adina Solomon, a freelance journalist based in Atlanta, has written about this idea. The Show spoke with her to learn what Telosa is and what’s it all about.
