What If We Drained the Mediterranean? 5

Imagine the Mediterranean Sea is disappearing! Old shipwrecks are rearing their ugly heads as the water drains around them, and Mediterranean cruises are becoming increasingly disappointing. But for once, this isn't a result of climate change — we're doing it on purpose! If we blocked off the Mediterranean's main water source from the Atlantic Ocean, we'd be essentially creating a new desert that connects Europe with Africa.

Take a deeper dive into What If episodes with the help from the world's top thinkers in science.

Southern Europe would be another Sahara desert 2.0
Italy, greece, and Turkey along with the Balkans would be heavily damaged.
The atlantropa plan is exactly what this is.
This plan was incredibly stupid and it would have damaged the planet very much and the economic output of southern Europe and North Africa would be destoryed.
