I dont think this will work properly, if it is just islands with no pillars connecting to said floating islands(witch is what the article is pointing at) it could be dangerous for those who live their. floating things can only take so much weight. think of it as a boat, if it takes on to much weight it could sink putting many people in danger. this is a problem for the bigger islands (such a schools and hospitals, and more of the bigger stores) if it is a hospital sinks it could kill a lot of sick or injured people. not to mention nature and its way of making chaos. even if hurricanes art common in that area their is still a chance that one could pop up and kill many. i know they might find a way of fixing these problems but some are inevitable.
but you know those are just some of my opinions like anyone will listen to me🤡🥲
