    Nice idea, but has anyone figured out the cost of building the city and what the payback would be? If you cannot sell the real estate and other products (biofuels, food etc.) for enough to provide a reasonable payback for investors, you are not going to be able to build many, if any, of these lovely cities. Also, have you compared the cost of these floating cites vs. the cost of doing the same thing on land, maybe close enough to the sea to pump in water using some of this energy you expect to produce?
