In this teaching we will discuss Smart Cities: What they are; Advantages and Disadvantages of Smart Cities; Examples of Smart Cities; and, My Choice (where I have a Reservation).
Also, a warning about control of Smart Cities by governments: Local and Global. What to avoid!
SMART CITIES … OR ARE THEY?
Smart cities are
being planned―and developed―due to
demand, and in some cases due to foresight. There are too many dumb

cities by 2050. Cities
are also responsible for three fourths of total energy consumption
and 80 percent of greenhouse gas emissions … and therefore

Let’s start by
discussing the different factions (corporations, governments, and
organizations) who are actively involved in the current‒and
future‒development of Smart Cities, Smart Neighborhoods and Smart

An article in
Business Chief titled “Technology and AI” by Sajana
Samarasinghe says: “Smart cities use ICT technologies to fuel
smarter and more sustainable development practices, such as
transportation networks, water supply, and heating, as well as
promoting safer urban spaces.”
The writer then
chooses Chicago as #10 of the Smartest Cities in the USA.
Evidently the writer did NOT check out the MURDER rate in
Chicago while doing research. I wonder: Which
kills MORE and FASTER: bad climate OR murders?!

Let me give you an example of a Smart City that is SMART as regards to: energy resource sustainability, business-manufacturing and residential mix, and neighborhood social makeup. Innovative solutions for the challenges of the modern world, successful pilot projects in areas like mobility, environment, and, of course, digitalization clearly show that progress is at home in Vienna. https://www.wien.info/en/all-of-vienna/smart-city-vienna
made Vienna a Smart City? Resource efficiency and the climate
crisis are big challenges for cities around the world.
Vienna is taking up these global issues with flying colors, thanks
to an innovative Smart City strategy. The Smart City Vienna
framework strategy through 2050 is accompanied by many other
concepts and strategies of the city, like the city development
plan, a dedicated energy program, or the "Digital Agenda", which is
working on Vienna as a capital of digitalization.
"Smart solutions for the urban habitat of the 21st century" and
"Smart production in the city" are also essential elements of the
city strategy "Vienna 2030 - Economy & Innovation."
operates one of the biggest
heating networks in Europe.
More than 400,000 homes―around one
third of all households in Vienna―and more
than 6,800 large customers are supplied with environmentally
friendly heat. And … compared to conventional air
conditioning systems, the generation of central cooling needs four
to ten times LESS primary energy, saves space, is quiet and
visually inconspicuous: that makes it a
Particularly great is the demand for district cooling in Vienna city center. A district cooling network that supplies big customers like hospitals, public buildings, or hotels, is being constructed along the Ringstrasse boulevard. In the near future, district cooling should also be available for private households.
BUT ARE SMART CITIES ALL THAT GOOD … FOR EVERYONE
Steven Poole writes in The Guardian: The truth about smart cities: “In the end, they will destroy democracy.”
One take-home message at a Smart City conference seemed to be that whatever the smart city might be, it will be acceptable as long as it emerges from the ground up: “the bottom-up or citizen-led approach.”
But of course, the things that enable that approach―a vast network of sensors amounting to millions of electronic ears, eyes, and noses―also potentially enable the future city to be a vast arena of perfect and permanent surveillance by whomever has access to the data feeds.

Security issues related to public data and surveillance.
Almost 70% of
the world’s largest cities have already invested in “Smart City”
technology and many others are considering its implementation. The
increase in federal funding and strong partnerships between
city governments and private sector technology companies
will further consolidate the reality of smart cities in the
This is where a BIG DANGER lies. Consolidation of local, state, and regional governments―and in the future, possibly national governments―with ESG, WEF and/or Global Reset platforms will “cross the line” of sacrificing freedom for control. When this happens, there will be NO individuality: NO personalization: only accepted control.
AND GLOBAL RESET ARE DANGEROUS
The best place to find
information about the Global Reset is on the website of the World
Economic Forum (WEF). Rather than focus on profits, private
property rights, supply, and demand from consumers—the cornerstones
of free market economies—WEF / Reset wants to develop a
system based largely on “environmental, social, and governance
Beware of ESG! The Global Reset is “purposely” about shifting wealth and power into the hands of elites and surveillance of the common citizen (and small business owners) for control.
WATCH OUT FOR:
> The Big Reset
> ESG (the Big Banks are NOT your friends anymore)
> Digital Currency
The World Economic Forum (WEF) wants to control EVERYTHING in your life: a digital ID system that would collect personal data about your online behavior, purchase history, network usage, medical history, travel history, energy uses, health status. A “Social Credit Score” like China uses!
Then they can use this data to determine who should open bank accounts, conduct financial transactions, access insurance & treatment, book trips, cross borders. AND MORE!
ESG stands for Environmental Social and Governance, and refers to the three key factors when measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a business or company. ESG criteria aids some investors to avoid companies that might pose a greater (purported) financial risk due to their environmental or other practices. What’s truly outrageous about ESG is the way it studiously ignores the massive, widespread damage inflicted by pseudo-renewable energy.
S&P [Standard and Poor's ~ creator of financial market indices—widely used as investment benchmarks—a data source, and an issuer of credit ratings] Global says it “incorporates ESG risks and opportunities into the credit rating analysis” of public issuers. This includes ambiguous and open-ended categories such as how a state scores on “managing carbon,” “political unrest stemming from community and social issues” and “adverse publicity that results in reputation risk.”
Unlike quantifiable financial metrics, this qualitative view depends entirely on the beliefs of whoever constructs it. It is very easy to discern that those beliefs are left-wing. S&P assigns a lower ESG score to states that have both “physical risks” like earthquakes and natural disasters and a larger percentage of their economy tied to natural resource extraction.
So IF you're looking to move to a Smart City now or in the future, make sure it is controlled from the “ground up” … by that I mean, controlled by the citizens: the tenants … and NOT just an HOA, and especially NOT by ESG, WEF, or a government or enterprise.
THE SMART CITY WHERE I HAVE A RESERVATION
But here is the SUPER SMART
CITY. It will
be in Messiah’s Millennial rule, where Messiah Yeshua rules on
Planet Earth from Jerusalem for 1,000 years.
Ever wonder WHAT it will be like and
WHAT environmental changes will take place?
I can tell
you exactly from the Hebrew Scriptures in Tanakh! Go here
