From the pictures it makes the beach look like its covered in algae or seaweed. I don't think people will be very receptive to the idea if it looks like that.

I don't think people will be very receptive to the desolate hellscape that will be the world if we don't do drastic things to mitigate climate change.

I am not saying that this is the solution though.

So far it appears most ppl are looking forward to that desolate hellscape

There already are green sand beaches, which are considered something of a tourist attraction.


Those pictures are heavily edited. When I visited Papakōlea several years ago, the sand had a green tint but looked more like this picture: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/photocontest/detail/natural-w...

If it's not sticky and smelly like algae then be it, people will get used to it.
