Semi-Finalist Evaluation

Judges'' comments

Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest.
We, the Judges, have strongly considered your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, we have chosen to not advance it to the next round of competition.
We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to the Proposal Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal”.
We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise. During the voting period, you can help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. The Climate CoLab will be opening more contests in the coming months, and you are welcome to submit your proposals to those contests as well.
Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible

Judge 1: Interesting ideas, but the authors should do some more thinking on the full life cycle impacts/benefits of the ideas. For example, where does the captured CO2 come from? Where does the electricity to power the LED lights come from? What percentage of total food demand can be obtained from this type of agriculture? The authors describe an interesting intensive farming system, but need to consider also the larger system that is needed to support their (sub-)system.

Judge 2: Fundamentally, there is some clear information about its goal in the Description Summary, which is vastly described at his home web site. There is adequate information about last three items, and unclear about the proposals costs. Also not clear about what country(s) would he want to set these up?
