"Great idea - but will it actually float? And how much would it cost to build? And just how resilient are they to the current extremes of weather we've been experiencing? I'd love to know what the engineers think of this :-)"

"The problem with your pad is there is corrsion in the sea and such a structure would be assembled and would fall apart as many ships do due to heavy seas. i think there is a better way. thanks kindly, RiCH"

"it is a bold idea that should be investigated further cos the sea level increase seems inevitable. space is not the final frontier! "
