Re: Lowering sea level.

A better way might be to deploy about 700 ships equipped with firehose sprayers in the warm areas of the world's oceans. Each pumps up water from the sea and squirts it out in streams port and starboard, far from sealanes, to create a modest global-cooling effect and gradually restore Arctic and Antarctic ice. The cost is relative moderate (a few billion), and occasionally these ships can be called upon to perform rescue opeations (or maybe fight fires on land near a coastline, if you don't mind the salt.)

Not as much fun as the notion of a flat Earth, though.
