This is what the scientists are doing as opposed to clearing the mess up !!!... unbelievable ??!
Then this got me thinking, I read another thread on ATS recently which referred to TPTB and their future control of the planet..... It referred to a
'floating Island from which they controlled the planet ........
There is a lot of things I do not agree with TPTB on but human nature
is hard to change, so taking lemons and making lemonade does
not seem like such a bad idea.
I like this idea better than the Guidestones ,the book Ecoscience,
or the Mims-Pianka controversy.
Also in 1 of the 4 major currents a large fortune in uranium
floats by every year...
"There is a concentration of uranium passing through this current every year (between 5 and 6 million tons)."
I cannot even imagine what a ton of uranium sells for...
let alone millions of tons...
In the last 20 years the region has seen 2 tropical storms.

So it would need to be made hurricane proof.
As it floats it would rise with the tidal surge so that would be a
non-event, the wind damage could be mitigated if the buildings
are made like honeycombs out of plastic recycled into something
akin to kevlar also know as body armor.
"...5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis..."
The island should be flexible so it can move with the swells that
such high winds would surely kick up.
Recycling the plastic into the same nylon rope used to tie
aircraft carriers to piers should work well for intersection linking.
Some new synthetic rope being used by the US navy is 10
times stronger than steel by weight.
I think one option would be to have the island act like a submarine
in a time of a tropical storm and sink itself below the waves.
Top water buoys with the equivalent of dry snorkels could be
the source of air for the ppl below waiting out the storm below.
The other option is build it to withstand the possible 190 mph winds.
The temporary submarine move might be cheaper and safer.
Another option would be large spheres similar to Geodesic domes
but fully circular that could open and close triangular storm doors
and interconnect the spheres with super strong nylon ropes like
they are using to tie up aircraft carriers.
Large airbags could act as shock absorbers if storms try to
smash them together.
This is just theory, but it is a start.
Taking this trash plastic and changing it into a different polymer
strings will take some seriously bright chemists.
There is plenty of sun power out there, and the power of the
current could be captured underwater for power as well.
4 large currents move in the area to create the Gyre.
This device could get power from the currents.
It has been prototyped and it works.
