It may seem like science fiction, but as rising sea levels threaten low-lying nations around the world, floating cities may become more common. This is the american scientist’s argument to rise money to build such SF cities, writes The Guardian.
The Seasteading Institute proposes a series of floating villages – and claims to be in active negotiations with potential host nations.
At first the villages would aggregate in protected waters. You could extend an existing city like London into the water quite far before ever being seriously challenged by infrastructure issues. Later, they would cut ties with land altogether.
