- Fossilisation, replenishment of water, soil (natural) preservation, oxygenating of agricultural lands may take a beating.
- Cities may probably heat-up more, but the homes get to be cooler when you have mini-farms set-up. Apartment and kitchen farming isn't all that new, anyway.
- Sustainability of a farm is a matter of dropping a bomb over it.
- Actually, their geographical positioning isn't an issue, just that the local sufficiency of the urban becomes easier.

- Infrastructural problems are bound to arise, unlike the traditional
