New continent grown by corals

In XX century, some artificial islands were built by UAE, Japan and China, but their land reclamation technologies were rather old-fashioned: large amounts of rocks, cement or clay had to be moved to a targeted area. That's why those artificial islands were small and very expensive to build. Now, with genetically modified fast-growing corals, one can easily grow a new island with pre-designed properties. This biotech method is even used to grow a whole new continent in Pacific Ocean.

StormWrath Land Systems Maybe The Maker Of This Should Of Payed More Attention In Science Class.How The Hell Is Flexible Weak Coral Hold Up This Whole Island.Just Look How Small That Base Is.Coral Is Just To Weak,Would Be Eaten By Other Animals And Is Subject To Climate Change.Warm Water Easily Bleaches And Kills Coral Very Quickly.Just Look At The Great Barrier Reef.Also Coral Could Never Grow This Big Even With Sufficient Genetic Advancements.Why Is EveryThing On This WebSite So Unrealistic? 30 Apr 2019
StormWrath Land Systems What Has This World Come To.Why Are People So Dumb.This Is So Stupid.Coral Can not Grow That Quickly And The Coral Foundation Of The Island Does Not Very Strong.This Is Stupid 30 Apr 2019
