The world’s first floating farm making waves in Rotterdam

The world’s first offshore dairy farm opens in the Port of Rotterdam this year, with the aim of helping the city produce more of its own food sustainably. But will such farms ever be able to produce enough to feed the world’s growing urban populations?

A Dutch property company, Beladon, is launching the world’s first “floating farm” in a city port.

It has built the offshore facility right in the middle of Rotterdam’s Merwehaven harbour and will use it to farm 40 Meuse-Rhine-Issel cows milked by robots.

Built-up urban areas may not seem like the most sensible places to run farms, but reducing the distance food travels before it reaches consumers’ plates makes environmental sense as it reduces transport pollution.

And if the global population grows to 9.8 billion by 2050 as expected, 70% are forecast to live in cities – up from 55% today.

A Loving Husband

Posted by Buygold @ 9:06 on August 18, 2018  


Thinking back a few years, living in Fla., I remember Hurricane Matthew. I was ready for it but my wife was not.
When the wind reached a screaming pitch with the trees snapping and threshing, the horizontal streaming rain, flying roofing iron and destroyed fences as well as the unnerving sound-levels, my wife was rooted to the spot. She stared and stared through the glass of the window. Immovable, with her nose pressed to the windowpane, the stark fear in her eyes will stay with me forever.
Fortunately, as the eye of the storm arrived and the winds temporarily lessened, I was able to open the door and let her in.

Morning Ipso, Moggy

I’m glad you enjoyed my observations.  I’m still amazed at the diverse forms that lava takes, depending on eruptive conditions, gasses, pressures, & water.   This has been a historic phase-change for our volcano.  For now, the volcano seems to have reached a pressure equilibrium after emptying the magma.  The USGS today downgraded the volcano from ‘Warning’ status to ‘Watch’.  The earthquakes and crater collaps at the summit have ceased, and lava has stopped flowing out of the vent… for now.   As always, subject to change.

Maya, thank you very much for the recent postings from

your own knowledge and observations, plus the USGS links, all relating to recent volcanic activity near you.  The type of lava that has always intrigued me is pillow lava, especially when it occurs at altitudes as much as 7000 feet above present sea level, unlike the pillow lava that the edge of your island has recently been experiencing when today’s lava flows reach seawater.

I had the good fortune in 1959-60 to take my geomorphology instruction when this subject was being taught at U.B.C. by Bill Mathews.  In the link below, Bill Mathews is mentioned because he is still regarded as an early authority on subglacial volcanos.  It was from Dr. Mathews that I first heard of pillow lava.

In case you are wondering how there can be pillow lava formed several thousand feet above sea level, today’s best documentation is from the  Mount Edziza area of British Columbia, at about 7000 feet above sea level.  In southwestern B.C., also around 7000 feet altitude, pillow lava has also been observed in the Mount Cayley volcanic field of the Garibaldi volcanic belt.  In the case of both Mount Edziza and Mount Cayley, the explanation is that the erupting volcano created lava-dammed meltwater lakes beneath or  near the melting overhead glacial ice.  Pillow lava and pillow tubes developed as lava cooled in the glacial meltwater lakes , just as lava cools beneath seawater.  The link below is a schematic of Mathews’ subglacial volcanism.



Hi Moggy good to see you’re here

 How is Norma?

A sweet grandmother Telephoned St. Joseph’s Hospital. She timidly asked, 

“Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”
The operator said, “I’ll be glad to help, dear. What’s the name and room number of the patient?”
The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, Norma Findlay, Room 302.”
The operator replied, “Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse’s station for that room.”
After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said,
“I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her Physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow.”
The grandmother said,
“Thank you. That’s wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good News.”
The operator replied,
“You’re more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?”
The grandmother said, “No, I’m Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me crap.”
