A better question: Who is going to live on these islands in the Arctic? Do you plan on forcing them to move to the Arctic by gunpoint? Right now relatively few people live north of 45°N except in Europe because nobody else has the Gulf Stream warming lands nearer the North Pole. Even Vladivostok is closer to the Equator than the North Pole.

It's not a case of building the islands and they will come. Otherwise, these islands wouldn't be the manmade disaster they are.

I'm still puzzled why someone went apolitical on "northwestern Greenland" and decided to re-name their island after Michael Schumacher

The Kamaʻehuakanaloa Seamount is hard at work creating a new island in the Hawaiian chain. Should be ready in about 12022 to 102022.

I'd build AARoads Island, a large island that only AAroads users can visit. We will design it together.

Or destroy it together and the winner reigns supreme over the wasteland.

We will fracture into several clans where we fight to the death over control of the island.

I was thinking something along the lines of Battle Royale.  Explosive collars tend to get people off the bench and into the game.

We should make an AAroads videogame. Anyone have programing experience?

Just use the Doom engine and it’s many source ports.

There's already quite a few islands in the Canadian Arctic. Some of them are quite large. Most of them sparsely inhabited. Why would anyone think that a new island in the same area would attract multi-thousands of new settlers?
These islands could get settlements, towns, cities, highways and similar. The cities would rival Tromso, Murmansk and Norilsk by population.
So what is preventing these "settlements, towns, cities, highways and similar" on the existing islands? And why would they suddenly appear on new islands?
Have new populated places on Arctic islands.

Populated places would go to existing Arctic islands.
So what is preventing these "populated places" from already existing on the existing islands?
Having a new island to live - without any current populated places.

There are lots of unpopulated islands already.  Why build new when there are plenty uninhabited to go round?
No new islands - only existing islands would get populated places.

Goat Jesus is pleased by the long quote but angered by the fact that he didn’t think to construct new Arctic Island Gulags first.
Goat Jesus is love. Goat Jesus is life. The island of Alanland will be created in the Indian Ocean, and only AARoads users and goats will be allowed. All transit geeks will be locked into the tropical gulags or shipped off to North Sentinel Island.

Alanland is just off the coast of Eureka, California.   Where the hell are you getting your information from?  And you wanted to be Grand Alan…

I want to abandon that Alanland and move it to a new location to avoid being taken over by the US military. A lot safer in the Indian Ocean away from the superpowers.

I don't like it, but I do what I have to do. The President just announced that he will be invading Alanland in March, so I gotta do what's best for our great nation.
