An updated version of the Dam Greenland project presentation. This project examines the idea of damming parts of Greenland to create a giant reservoir, preventing the melted glaciers’ water from entering the ocean, and thus reducing the effect of rising sea levels and changes in salinity levels.

*Raises sea level 7m by 2100 *100s Millions of people displaced *Even if we reduce CO2 emissions Greenland Ice Sheet

Submerged areas at 7 meters *Haneda Airport, Disneyland all submerged *Affects 5 million people

*3 mm per year *Many major cities will disappear under the sea soon *Goal: 18 years *18 years = 5.4 cm In a few decades, Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, and Florida could all look like this picture of Venice

1. Lobby politicians, scientists, environmentalists 2. Spread the word: use social media! 3. Participate in Science experiments *Building a dam in the freezer *Various Dam building materials *Detailed geographical studies with Google Earth
