The average troglodyte really doesn't keep track of this stuff. I remember a couple months before Zika was a "thing" that they released some mosquitos near Brazil
This actually sounds like a great idea IF they don't use the technology to infect us with some sort of evil bug.I wonder what the ecological effects would be if we exterminated mosquitoes all together. I hate them. For animals that eat mosquitoes would other edible bugs cover their niche to provide feed?
Texy-poo, deep down you know the ocean is the ultimate solution, 70ish % of the solution at least. And with the current wave of 'Flat Earthers' saying we all need to get to the center of the plane earth (north pole) and then jump in the centre hole with the ('Life-Giving Waters) to 'Exit the Earth' realm (Tesla: Not a Globe, Not a Plane, just a Realm), and whatnot, do you think it makes sense to relocate to the ocean in actual boats (Spheres) instead of the land based retreat? Just for the Moment, you know until they completely wreck everything?I arrived at the concept in the link below after a part-time seafaring uncle planted the 'houseboat' idea into my noggin several days ago (I'm a Shut-In by nature) and I've been researching the Gleason's Map ever since for some reason. I was so relieved when I found these Italian Artists. It means I think a bit like them artists when it comes to Boats as I made some rough sketches of a basic ballast stabilized Sphere Boat, did a search and found them, and only them. A true Meme and I was only a year late. I have completely revised my current '5 year plan'.http://www.jetcapsule.com/UFO/UFO.html
If your interested in Ocean living here's the uber, ultra plan. Here’s a guy who has figured out how to provide all the calories every single person needs, (quality food too like Tuna, Ocean fish, etc), and four times the electricity of a present American citizen with beach front condo property for every human on planet Earth with about zero ecological concerns in 15 years. Really. Maybe cost a billion or so as it builds itself after you start it.Atmospheric Vortex Engine-The power plant that works off of tropical ocean water (remember most of the Ocean is basically dead).Exponential Remediation of Civilization’s Footprinthttp://jimbowery.blogspot.com/2014/05/introduction-extinction-of-human-race.htmlhttp://jimbowery.blogspot.com/2013/08/breakout-labs-funded-prototype-of.htmlhttp://jimbowery.blogspot.com/2014/05/greenhouses-are-not-next-green.htmlThese would be great to survive comet strikes or whatever as deep ocean doesn't make big waves or at least big enough to disturb these structures.I've thought a bit about Ocean going boats. I believe boats should be built like 4-wheelers. They would have a body like a RV for reasonable space utilization. Extending out from the body would be a 6 or 8 foot high suspension system. The wheels(extending the 4-wheeler metaphor) would be pontoons. Like on catamarans. The pontoons could be made of sheets of wood,fiberglass, carbon fiber or whatever. They would NOT provide the buoyancy. Inside the sheets structured like pontoons would be lots of regular plastic soda bottles like you get at the store. This provides super cheap and easily renewable buoyancy without the high cost of making everything water tight. Pack them in nets to group them together and provide redundancy. To reduce the complexity of the pontoon they could be shaped like Sharpie boats which are mostly flat sheets that are bent. Low cost. Remember the sheets are only to outline the hydrodynamics of the pontoons. Bolger made a lot of designs for sharpie boats. Like this.http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_BP1unI3JPbI/SrgGAvLBO4I/AAAAAAAAJRU/3GKSkB9TD48/s400/Bolger+Micro+Sailboats.jpgHere's his houseboat called the SuperBrick.http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/03/r/articles/superbrick/This would be a good shape for the boat. Imagine pontoons connected with an air suspension where the boat is 6 or 8 feet in the air. The suspension would provide a smooth ride above the water spray. The suspension could be lowered and stowed next to the boats sides to fit into docks. You could have a really wide stance making it extremely difficult to turn over. At the same time with the folding pontoon suspension it would be easy to trailer. Sea based RV.For the suspension springs imagine a net shaped in a cylinder with pinched off ends connected to tension ropes on the ends. Inside would be stuffed either truck inner tubes or a large rubber bladder. As the net is stretched(pulled from either end) it would try to squish the rubber air filled bladder providing an air spring. The good thing about this it the whole thing is made of easily replaceable rubber bladders(you could pour your own) and net made of rope. The bladders could even be a bunch of tire tubes smashed into the net then inflated. That way if one broke you still have more and inner tubes are easy to find. They use these for Robotic Air Muscle Actuators but I would use it as a spring.http://docplayer.net/22716945-Biorobotics-build-your-own-robotic-air-muscle-actuator.html
That sounds awesome dude, I don't have a billion dollars though. But I did see this weird shit on youtube about archimedes screw and ball, I figure add water and current and a maze of least resistance and it might generate enough power to charge the lead acid batteries.
I forgot to mention, because it's really a secret, but, when I'm living on the ocean I can hunt down Pirates and rob them, you know, surviving and shieet, plus looking for sunken boats from years ago. But what I'm really designing is semi-subs (10 - 30 meters, with ballasts of course, and disposable ballasts for deeper looking and elastic inverted pendulum counterweight semi-anchors so I can sail into a Hurricane and relax. Let the fluid dynamics do the wanking.Regards
"I've thought a bit about Ocean going boats. I believe boats should be built like 4-wheelers.

Imagine a giant golf ball with a ball (ballast) and chain attached to the lower ballast array of said 'Sphere Boat' (Inverted Pendulum) acting as a keel in a tsunami , another MattyBoy Invention. Imagine the joy of sailing INTO the 'eye of the storm' instead of trying to sail away from it.Inverted Pendulum Disposable Stabilizing Ballast System invented by MattyBoy, See you at the Ice Wall, Pack It.Regards
Reason to prepare #2345 "Authorities have ordered a halt to pumping water out of a lake near Rome following a prolonged drought, a decision that could force city officials to impose water rationing in the Italian capital."http://www.reuters.com/article/us-italy-drought-rome-idUSKBN1A70GE

BUT, the 'Freak Wave' scenario that has been video documented and does exist will be gobbled up by the floatation system I'm designing.Regards
"...Hence the rapid inflation and deflation of disposable 'Smart Ballasts', think McFly, THINK..."As your thrown around like you're in a washing machine trying to trouble shoot the corroded contacts in the salt water environment. Hopefully you won't run out gas for the powerful motor needed to rapidly inflate ballast. Oh wait! I found a video of you in your houseboat.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGmePdcjoJY
