.. 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 .....no 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.

The water has to go somewhere. It effectively increases sea level more. By reducing the area of the x-y plane it only leaves the z plane to increase

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.

6:47 dude we brits don't care, it's not a big deal, no one really thinks that much about being an island. this is not a factor to be considered in the draining at all. we will still be the same country even if we aren't an island ( which doesn't matter to us)

This dam definetly will never be build. Drain all that water and the sea level across the globe will probably rise by 10 meter or so. It is a thought experiment which noone actually plans to build.

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.

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?

The Dam may stop the flooding but what happens to all the sea life? North Sea fishing is a major food source for Europe and somehow I don't think this would have a positive impact. Next idea please....or just leave it and let people move their lazy asses away from the coasts. Except not the UK government, they can just stay where they are...the idea of Westminster being submerged is so appealing to me...
