We know that the melting of polar ice can cause waters to rise considerably. Al Gore has travelled around the world presenting the facts. Many seem to have forgotten the logical solution to the problem.
Let's take a journey back in time. There was a ship lying at the bottom of the sea that was too heavy to be lifted using conventional crane systems. A creative person was reminded from a Disney cartoon that golf balls contained air - and floated on water. That boat was raised using golf balls.
Similarly we know the chemical formula for water is H2O. 1 Hydrogen and 2 Oxygen atoms.
What would happen if you converted water atoms back to hydrogen and oxygen? You would end up with quite a bit of hydrogen and oxygen. None of which are dangerous to nature. In fact, just like we have oil platforms at sea, we could use depleted oil rigs to install such a conversion system at the atom level which could turn water into air.
I know it's a question of politics and money, but if we know water levels will rise within a decade or two, now is the time to take action.
Consider, for a moment, the costs if entire cities are innundated. At such a time it would be too late to consider alternatives. If we act now we have a fair chance of changing the course of history so there wouldn't be any destruction to the world as we know it. The solution is now on the table. The question is whether politicians will take action, and get out their wallets in a community effort to save our life on this planet.
I hope politicians will begin listening. It may be the eleventh hour, but no one may have considered this before...
