Where should all the settlers go!!

Ha'aretz daily

Two artificial islands will rise off the country's coast if the government goes ahead with a
change in planning. A fast-track building program for residential projects of more than 500
housing units and a plan to build the artificial islands are to be presented to the cabinet
on Sunday.

The proposals have already drawn flack from officials in several ministries, including the
Environment and Interior Ministries. Officials who object say the proposals violate existing
planning policy and could have far-reaching effects on the environment.

A proposal to be submitted by National Infrastructure Minister Effi Eitam and Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon sets up a panel of ministry director-generals, headed by the director-general
of the National Infrastructure Ministry, which would push construction of two islands off

Floating Survival Units for all EarthLife.

sustaining units floating on the deep ocean. Not one big lump, but small units wiith
articulated links so the whole thing is flexible. They must be able to feed themselves even
if there is a huge breakthrough of UV light to burn up all the plants growing out in the

And they need to contain the most diverse environment possible. And that includes diverse
types of people too.

There is a great deal of research to be done, and consideration given to a breakdown in the
weather system if the world temperature becomes much mor equable.

UV light may be the fire next time.

Alfred Russel Wallace suggested the next stage in evolution will be in the direction of Co-
operation, and it is Hospitality that makes us human.
