The last frontier isn't here, just yet. Clarke and Hendrix were just a bit optimistic on the dates.

So we seem a collection of misfits. I bet you follow the Merm, don't. You? (Our stock market)

       why would i want to move from one unstable idiocracy to another one that is isolated by water?

       We are all isolated by water. This idiocracy would be movable.   

       the mobility of any idiocracy is limited by futility.

       I wonder how many people you could support by converting the flight-deck of an aircraft carrier into a ploughable field. Whichever way you look at it, it is a rather expensive way to grow crops.   

       How about a similar idea, only achieved using a collection of zeppelins? If you built a transparent airship, you have what is effectively a floating greenhouse, capable of rising above the clouds to take advantage of the sun all year-around.

       Right after you get working on those helium-breathing plants.

       Use hot air not Helium see floating city link

       That would take a heck of a lot of hot air and therefore energy. Look at the gondola size of a hot air dirigible, and look at the bag size.
