The technology for climate control made it necessary to remove color. The Elders also wanted to minimize the differences that people see thus encouraging "sameness" among the community. Color fosters individuality which the Elders do not want too much of. I agree with Jonas, a world without color is dull.

"We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with difference."
