Ah, but not necessarily. If you started in a remote area, like the middle of the ocean, we really wouldn't be disturbing anyone. Rather, we could make islands that people could live on after they formed correctly.

Bare midriffs are better than bare thighs. Y'all are gonna have bugs crawling up your skirts.
I imagine it would take years to convert an aircraft carrier into anything resembling a city. They're usually cramped, and they don't even let certain people on them due to height and weight regulations.

Your pants are loose enough that so will you. xP

But by creating more land you would only be creating more miles of beach, instead of reducing it. But what you said is true, bot of our plans will have resistance. All change is resisted at first.
