More land. That's good. Should drive real estate prices down.

Those poor pacific islands that are sinking from climate change should start digging big holes and blowing atom bombs in the bottom of them?

These islands tend not to last, returning to the sea after a few months or - at most - years.

Drop a couple outfitted shipping containers on it w/composting toilets & solar showers & MREs. Transfer the 1/6 prisoners there.

Isn't this going to cancel out the sinking ones?

When a mommy tectonic plate and a daddy tectonic plate love each other very much, moments of weakness lead to baby islands.

Chtulu isn't that big. An ice breaker took him out, kinda.

The real threat is Dagon.  Nobody can resist the sexy fish people or being a sexy fish person.

You want new tall islands if you want to get technical. Replace your oompaloompas with basketball players. Or something. :)

Heh - icebreaker just tagged him in the head though in the story - so his head would be about icebreaker-sized.  Which pretty much works with the illustration

/at least as far as I recall he was mostly submerged when they ran him over

Write up the report and send it to all the responsible parties.

Samoans look over to their volcanic vent, demand to know when they're going to get more baby islands if that biatch Tonga can make them so easily.

FTA:

The volcano along Home Reef continued to gush lava, ooze gas, emit steam and erupt multiple times a day...

As does TFG.

We're trying to get rid of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, not expand it south.

BlazeTrailer: I promptly built a cigar factory on it in Tropico.


That just reminded me. Playing the first Tropico, and I wasn't doing well.  I guess people didn't like the high taxes, crappy jobs, and my constant bulldozing of their shiatty homes to build yet more 5 star hotels for tourists.
Some guy announces he is running for El Presidente. And he's dying very well in the polls. Well that's not how I do things on my island. So I had him jailed. Not long after another guy runs, so I have him jailed too. Another guy runs against me, and since they aren't getting the message, I have my soldiers shoot him down in the streets. Another guy runs and he is also shot. The next guy is jailed. Jailed. Shot. Shot. Jailed. Shot. Jailed. Jailed. Shot.
It's like the day before the election, and I shoot the guy running against me. Another guy immediately announces he is running for president like 10 minutes before the election, and I can't get my soldiers to him in time.  He wins Iike 95% of the vote.
The people chose some guy they've known for all of 10 minutes over me, their beloved job creating (if you are lucky enough to get a job at a tourist resort) president. The next thing I know, I'm in a tiny rowboat with no oars (and a very apparent lack of food and water) drifting away from my island.
