US island territorial waters most suitable for floating nuclear synplexes:Uninhabited islands: Jarvis Island, Palmyra Atoll and Kingman Reef, Johnston Atoll, Howland and Baker Islands, Aleutian Islands (Near Islands, the Rat Islands, Buldir Island and the Island of the Four Mountains)Islands exclusively occupied by the US military: Wake Island, Midway Atoll by Marcel F. WilliamsThe fossil fuel dominated energy economy of modern human civilization has now pushed the carbon dioxide (CO2) component of our atmosphere above 400 parts per million. This is a 40% increase in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere since the start of the industrial revolution. The Pliocene epoch was last time CO2 levels in the atmosphere were as high , the geologic period that preceded the Pleistocene and the emergence of our genus (Homo). So modern humans are currently living within an atmosphere that is not only alien to our species but also to are genus. The enhanced greenhouse effect resulting from the ever increasing amounts of carbon dioxide being put into the atmosphere by human activity is already starting to melt the the polar icecaps. And melting icecaps are gradually increasing global sea levels. Rising sea levels caused by increased amounts of atmospheric CO2 is nothing ...
