“Four o’clock in the morning I’m at, ‘Jesus, that’s not very much.’ I mean, I had this image of what it was and how much the sea level was rising. And I knew there was thermal expansion and all this, and that’s not very much. And then I realized, my God, we can stop sea-level rise.”
On the commute home tonight I listened to an engaging story about Carl Hodges who wants to use the drained coastal aquifers as giant storage tanks for any increase in the world’s oceans.
“Hodges says the process is not only safe, but it would actually boost the remaining freshwater supply further inland. And he’s got the science to back it up.”
What do you think? Can we prevent sea level rise with pumps and an empty aquifer?
