Something’s Awesome in the State of Denmark
An opinion by Jeremiah Farmer

This article from the CityLab website appears to take issue with greater Copenhagen’s plan to create 740 acres of offshore artificial islands. Unfortunately, the author implies that Copenhagen is mistaken in its pursuit of this ambitious 50-year development, despite its stated goals of achieving carbon neutrality and combatting rising sea levels.

In actuality, the proposal is nothing short of applaudable. We have seen airports built offshore – first in Tokyo and Hong Kong – then entire communities in Dubai and Bahrain. Compared with the smaller, more incremental methods undertaken in Manhattan and San Francisco, these developments are quite intriguing. As we naturally run out of space, how should we approach development on islands? This Copenhagen model is truly unique and, by design, is a comment on island development. It essentially sets a necessary precedent of carbon waste reduction and flood protection. It is, in my mind, the single best way to approach development, and I commend it.

It's too bad this author takes the basic tack of, "How dare you attempt anything ambitious until you have solved every other problem and made everybody perfectly happy.”
