Manufacturing Islands to cope with Rising Sea-levels by City-Tech blogger Dave Persaud

As sea levels rise more and more, it’s becoming crucial for us to find a way to cope with this change. One nonprofit company, Seasteading Institute aims to help us cope with this issue by building islands to form a city in the South Pacific. This plan will allow us to live on these islands which will not be affected by rising sea levels for about the same as real estate prices in New York and London.
