Re: Lowering sea level.

How about if the super atom smasher creates a little black hole and sucks up some of the water into where ever a black hole leads?

How about we just mix a lot of Drain-O into the ocean.

1) The black holes couldn't be created in the ocean.
2) The black holes if created wouldn't last long enough.
3) We'd be better off simply storing the water somewhere we can get to it if we need it in the future rather than destroying it in a black hole.

Re: Lowering sea level.

I've got it! We freeze a bunch of water into ice, and float it off somewhere harmless. Maybe one of the poles.

Eureka!!!!

Oh wait no, that wouldn't work, the volume of the ice cube would just keep the water at the same level. DOH!

Design and build huge drills and drill them into the Earths surface, dig several thousand holes under the seas and the water will fill all the holes up lowering the sea levels?
So, where are you going to put the stuff you dig out of the holes? In the ocean?

In the grand canyon obviously.

Must I think of everything!

Re: Lowering sea level.

Grand canyon ain't nearly big enough to hold the amount of dirt that would be required. Even if there were an economical way to get it there.

Perhaps you should leave these problems to the experts.

The Grand Canyon was a joke. All dirt will be piled up into a huge mountain in central Greenland.
That's why my second idea is better.

Re: Lowering sea level.

We nuke Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan into the ground (giving innocent people the chance to flee first), then keep bombing it until it's really deep; the border line in the south connecting Iraq and Iran leads directly into the Indian ocean, so it would all come flooding in to fill.

Then we fill in the Grand Canyon, and any other crevices. ;-)

1. The Greenlanders will get pissed.

2. The steam will burn you.

How about we start eating whales, sharks and everything else BIG in the ocean. The more we eat the more the water receeds!
