Easy solution - you want to solve the rising sea level issue, nuke the ocean until the water evaporates. We'll deal with an inhabitable hellscape after we solve the sea level issue.

.. bytheway , this impossible to realize with science of today .. we already dammed a pretty big part of the north sea and we learned there is moreinvolved than constructing a dam and pumping the water out .. we did this with the first project , but the plans had to be adapted .. this a ridicilous suggestion , buillding dams to gsin land on this scale politician or engineer will take these plans seriously .... where did you find this information?.....

How about instead of shipping goods via ships (by the time Doggerland is excavated and possibly filled in again as said in the video), they should use aeroplanes and air vehicles. By the time the land is made feasible for people to live on, we may be way more advanced by that time and will be able to possibly transport even more goods and in a much faster fashion than ships travelling by water. Ships could become obsolete in the future.

This is just Atlantropa with bigger dams and without destroying Africa. Doggerland was also smashed by a tsunami, it wasn't just "rising sea levels", and that land would be nearly uninhabitable for centuries, just like what Atlantropa would have done to the Adriatic. It would take CENTURIES to become freshwater as well. 500 billion Euros sounds far too low, it has to be at least 3 trillion.

It wouldn't work. Obviously whoever thought of this was not very bright. Instead, you'll end up creating a freshwater north sea, because there is enough rainfall for the north sea to consistently be overflowing, along with all the rivers that flow into the north sea. So, unless you constantly drain the sea, it will fill up with water. Worse, the lands in england that are blocking the atlantic from going straight to mainland europe are actually very low. The atlantic will simply overflow across flat england, and the sea will suddenly rise. Atleast the Mediterranean idea had some possibility of working. Even worse, the dover straits are wider and more susceptible to erosion than those of gibraltar. After dover straits went underwater, they began to be eroded very much more. Worse, it would ruin the conditions for which europeans adapted their particular traits. Europe is the native land of the european people, such a large extended racial group, so altering it in such a way would change the very conditions of the only native land for many people. It would be better to simply try to preserve the coastlines, or perhaps stop building important things on lowland. Also, breaking down barriers for people's movement is a bad idea as it ruins localized genetics that were adapted to fit the area, and thus people are not as well fit for the land they live in. So, this plan should be abandoned no matter what. Now, on the otherhand, perhaps building a dam on the black sea to generate freshwater would be an interesting idea, given the black sea may have been a freshwater lake in the past. The black sea would also not shrink very much, if at all, due to being in a relatively rainy area, and would probably be easier to manage given that it is almost entirely surrounded by high enough land. But, even that is not a good idea as it messes with europe, and there is only one europe.

What if the dam breaks 200 years from now? It sounds like a this would just postpone disaster. Best let the sea rise slowly and force people to move away from the coast. If you keep the costal cities where they are and the dam breaks, the results will be worse than if you never built the dam.

First of all no real need to drop the level of the North Sea or only 10 meters to make Dogger Bank become again an Island.... But it is also possible to do it without building the big dam, only building a ring wall around around the Bank and going to search sand or stones e In reality, the height of the dam that will decided how thick it will need to be, will be the difference of Level between Atlantic Ocean and North Sea. So save Netherlands you need 3 meters. To have the Dogger Bank you need 10 meters. But how many years will you need to pump (and destroy in part all the harbours around the sea) to make the level of the sea go down....Because in this place the evaporation is less than the rains (in the Mediterranean Sea, evaporation is at least 5 times the rains, so level could goes down around 1.5 m each year:-). So even if we make canals to block all rivers at a height over the top of the big dam, it will be quite impossible to pump such a big surface against the rain on it! SOo the big dam will have to support only the tempest in northern Atlantic plus 3m of difference of level between the two sides. A dam like that can be built for millenia! Then OK for the dam to maintain the North Sea around his lower natural level, and the second dam will be only done at Calais Detroit. After that every country around the north sea could bring back materials for their mountains to create polders on the long of their coasts. Due to its side, the North Sea will ever have storms and big waves so coastal defences will be always needed

There's more water flowing from the Baltic Sea than into it so those dams might just rise the sea level instead of lowering it. Why isn't this addressed in the video?
