Could Bridging Gibraltar Save the Mediterranean Region?
June 16, 2016
This video raises a lot of questions, but it does show that dealing with Sea Level rise is going to require a lot of creativity, and resources. Geo-engineering is not just about solar radiation management, it implies that a number of adaptation strategies of this type will be considered. First step would be to bridge Gibraltar, with the possibility of adding Locks in the future to control Mediterranean water levels.
The video claims that ecological effects to the region would be manageable, but another major objection would be whether building such a structure would itself have a major effect on climate.
There are similar ideations floating around for other regions, like the Baltic.
