Claim the Pacific Garbage Patch as an independant nation.
Arrive onsite with the kind of equipment required to harvest and refine the floating plastic. Assemble large plastic bouys onsite, link em up and
floor em with plastic harvested and repurposed onsite.
These plastics are durable, thats the whole problem.... but thats not a problem anymore, because the (eventual) floating City State wont rust.
this would also be the first nation in history that you could drive around.
I would like input from the ATS community, is this idea impossible? In addition to removing the garbage itself, the traveling city state could
generate income, as a traveling tourist paradise... Or maybe it could generate power, through some innovation... Even it only served as a new nation
state where commerce and freedom flourish outside of control and tyranny that would be something.
But i feel that a third benefit at least is possible in this idea...
So ATS, should someone claim the Pacific Garbage Patch as an independant State? Should this party recycle the floating plastic into a floating
platform and build a city on it? How would this city power and feed itself? What kinds of industry could be supported? Who would be interested in
doing this and how would they, and all of us, benefit from it?
