Can a geodesic dome save Houston? The Discovery Channel thinks so. Featuring gigantic doors that can be closed to insulate the city from inclement weather (hurricanes, etc.), apex vents for ventilation, and built using a “strong and lightweight plastic called ethylene tetrafluoroethylene, or ETFE.”

Some environmentalists seem to feel that the Houston dome project is the only way to save the city. I’m all for preserving nature.
