Friday Futurecast: Islands

Sometimes, it takes a sarcastic comment to really drive an idea home.

A coworker of mine tried to introduce panic into a roomful of scientists by commenting on the current ‘Strawmaggedeon’ in California. Only a complete and utter moron would think all straws are banned in the state. (it is only plastic straws; you can get paper straws, should you be so inclined. It’s not a big price to pay to save some aquatic life and might help to shrink the size of the floating garbage in the Pacific.

Which leads to the sarcastic comment (Sadly, not made by me). Another coworker said we should plant our flag on the garbage heap and colonize it.

Naturally, my brain squirrelled and thought of those floating cities (Like in Stargate Atlantis). Why can’t we have floating cities?

With rising ocean temperatures and flooding of low-lying islands, wouldn’t this be a great solution at least as far as humankind was concerned?

And better yet, if you didn’t want to be part of the tyranny of the people, just break away from the mainland and drift away. Sorry, I couldn’t help it.

Until next time!
