Atlantis Rising

November 27, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

A new continent is being formed in the Pacific Ocean. This however is no pristine environment ripe for the claiming. In fact no one wants anything to do with it. In effect it is an unwanted trash heap, and that is actually what it is, trash. This island is roughly twice the size of Texas and is made almost entirely of human trash, and mostly plastic at that. The Tyee has a nice article explaining this disaster in the making, so Ill let you get the details from there. In thinking about this thing, I started to wonder. Perhaps in the future when nothing has been done about it, will it actually be possible to build on this island of garbage? If the mass coagulates to a point and plants start to grow in all the cracks and crevices and essentially glue this thing together, you would basically have a floating island. Now who would want to live there? One suggestion is make it a penal colony and let the criminals live off the land. Better yet, lets send all the crooked politicians there and let them eek out an existence. Regardless it may one day have a use, so lets all start contributing to the island!
