Climate change may lead to a rise in floating architecture

    That is a great idea! make NYC, Shitcongo, San Fran and LA float and we can either push them out to sea or into the lake……….. Then sink them.

        Nah, they wish they were more like Europe, I don’t even want them to think they are going to be happy.

        Holland is pretty good with reclaimed land. I guess CNN never heard of the place.

    It’s bit like the Tiny House and Off the Grid silliness. Step 1 – have a half million dollars and nothing but free time. Step 2 – find land or some other area that no one else owns and there are no regulations, covenants or zoning regs. Step 3 – If you ever finish, which is unlikely, blog about it.
