The Venus Project (looking for opinions)

I found information on The Venus Project on their website ***

A lot of what they had to say sounded outlandish and very science fiction…ey.

However, after having spent so much time recently thinking about all the problems in our world (call me atlas), and having recently read Daniel Quinn’s Ishmael, they seem to be addressing exactly the types of problems that need to be addressed the most.

And possibly in a good manner? Or does it sound like a cult? Or a scam? Or just complete b.s.? I want to know what other people think.
