Downhill Battle presents the Reasons Music diversity will grow. The major labels' business model requires them to have a steady stream of consistent products. The very nature of their operation produces homogenized music designed for specific radio formats and scientifically honed to hit-making models.

It does exist, but in most countries, building one is not allowed. An Earthship is a completely self-sufficient house that has a natural temperature regulation, without the use of a heating system.
