Can we save Venice?

When I read news like this: Venice will be under water by 2100, I think: we must save Venice! Can we? YES, we can! I always think big, but this is bigger than me, and every individual. But together we can do it. We did the impossible: we walked on the Moon, we sent Voyager to the edge of Solar System, we took a photo of a Black Hole! I have big ideas, but my voice is small, so I need voices that are heard, like leaders, actors, activists, politicians, journals and magazines, CEOs and so on. These are just some examples:

and many many more!

So here is my idea (it is a crazy idea like all great ideas: some people will laugh at first, but brilliant people will realize it is feasible): while we continue and intensify the efforts towards reduce pollution, gas emission and so on, together we could also

BUILD A SEA!

Why won’t we build a new sea, or more? With our forces together this will be easier than it sounds, with the use of our modern equipment, big machines and smart people!

So, we will first dig a big hole – my first thought was a desert (just think of Sahara), or an arid zone, but if it is not suitable I’m sure our brilliant scientists will figure out perfect place(s) for this. There are also many natural craters or human made holes that could possibly be used. If we’ll use a desert, we can take the sand from it and also help the beaches in need. Then we’ll use pumps day by day, year after year, to suck the right volume of water from the Mediterranean Sea and the Oceans, transport it and fill the hole(s) with it, and create – first – Venice Sea, then New York Sea, and Sidney Sea, or any coastal city’s Sea. It is not easy, but as a famous president said once, we have to do it ‘not because they are easy, but because they are hard.’ And most importantly, because if we don’t do it, Venice, and many other cities will be under water soon. Or we could start now and save them, together!

If this will go well, then I will share my idea (even crazier but also feasible) on how to produce electricity to have plenty of it, for every city of this world – our home, our only world!
