The Year 2060 - Due to the increased heat-conservation within urban perimeters and higher median temperatures unforeseen problems arose regarding the durability of EPS insulations, that had been used on a broad scale during the early part of the century. Furthermore technical standards for these styrofoam boards had been lowered in an attempt to facilitate higher production numbers during the late 2020s. These factors led to a rapid deterioration and subsequent dismantling of almost all exterior EPS-insulations. A lack of adequate waste-management created the need for vast landfills within the city's boundaries, as all communities were hit with a similar set of problems.
