Global Warming has an enormous impact on melting glaciers and ice sheets. Rising global temperatures melt glaciers increasing the amount of seawater. A large in rise sea level across the world poses many threats. With continuous increase of rise in water level, the area occupied by land decreases. This paper represents the study concerning floating construction to counter the ill effects of global warming in terms of utilisation of offshore renewable energy resources and improving an awareness to construct them.
