Hmmm, hadnít thought of that. If we bring up loads of rocks, then the sea levels will lower.
Which would counterbalance the rising sea levels due to global warming.

The weight of the rocks will make the land sink. Sea levels will rise again. And probably to the level that governments across the planet will be forced to tax us.
