Terraforming for the climate changes

Post by Auriorusiana »

Here to plague the forum again. Why can’t we use explosives like MOABS detonated underground in chains to create massive sinkholes to prevent coastline erosion? Unless we build aquifers or divert the streams of rivers to drain areas which would probably still be fruitless if the sea level rises anyways, I don’t see much a reason why you can’t create a sink hole to drain the coast obviously it’s just spit balling here but I see a lot of people into terraforming on here.

This would probably not work on a coastal plain so you’d have to detonate more inland and on solid ground that could collapse into other cave systems and not just a water layer. The earth is a porous rock, it can be done and I don’t see why the question isn’t atleast asked when we are blowing up history with these tools anyways. I see how this could end up like atlantropa easily but I also see Venice not flooding, even with the advent of their floating levees.

Couldn’t we build aqueducts that pump water up hill like a straw if it was sealed at some points. You could build on top of yourself in this way fast enough to transport water around by building manmade parks laterally and disperse enough to keep areas that would either be uninhabitable swamp into usable land. You could even use this method to build concentric levees to preserve a coast or even expand it

1)drain swamp
2)most of swamp begins to die if it dies completely it will become desert
3) establish solid ground on dried parts of swamp, build on top to double surface area available to disperse water into parks, homes, etc
4) pump water out progressively out, the more drained more clefts and hills will appear from the water that leaves, use those as levees/aquifers/area to live or build.

The end result would be miles and miles of terraces and overlapping aqueducts and canals. Digging drainage pits and using the dirt to build mound or levees etc.

A lot of river plains are very useful to have.

We are told in most coastal plains that we cannot have basements because of flooding. This true in part, we have salt minds that extend close to a mile deep, although bc of humidity and other wet factors they tend to collapse.

Salt domes bubble up almost like pimples do, they extend from a deeper layer to near surface in a teardrop shape, hypothetically you could use one as a tunnel to get deeper. Either way a completely hollowed out one of these would be more than enough to drain a swamp or two along with the salt itself soaking into the water.

The result on top would be a wasteland if it’s completely drained and not taken care of correctly.

Most of Louisiana’s salt mines are now collapsing and being abandoned due to the rising coast. You may ask how can we use an already flooding cave system as a way to drain if it is already sea level or under, because the earth is a porous rock, and especially in areas of high natural gas reserves where pockets overlap into larger pocket systems that aren’t all flooded, some that would almost certainly but still hypothetical extend below sea level and be sufficient to use as drainage.


We could double Louisiana’s available land in 15 years. Even start expanding it. Dubai would be a horrible example but also perfect proof if that shithole can do anything close than coastal areas have way more of chance. In fact it would be better to experiment by just blowing a hole into an area like Dubai with our best explosives that aren’t radioactive, the experiment would be more productive and profitable than that joke city.

Whoever can lead flood technology in the next few decades will be king so might aswell start getting friendly with Poseidon even a fraction of the wisdom from that is immense

It’s a game of dispersing water in such a way that the sediment can be used to create levees.

The gulf coast is known for being flat. Detonate a MOAB or a few on the ocean floor, and pump sediment out to create levees, or bore into higher elevation down diagonally and create a horizontal tunnel to drain under/into the higher elevation or both

As the sea levels rise, the city shall be elevated. The waves are inevitable.

Most coastal cities are built on bowls under sea level with weak walls holding it all up.

It can be as simple as raising these cities with a properly designed aqueduct system, but if there isn’t one made there’s no point in raising it and I’m afraid there’s too many people who would simply let us do this since there’s places where levees are repaired only to be broken over and over again creaking a financial sinkhole.

The mounds were lift here for a reason, poverty point, etc. they faced similar floods they had basic diagrams prepared on how to teach us

If there are entire manmade islands from 10k years ago still standing, if shitholes like Dubai can be constructed just to fizzle out in 50 years. There’s no reason we can’t redesign our cities and coast, no one bothers to actually fix everything bc it’s too expensive instead we stay trapped in loops where infrastructure fails and a piece is built back over and over again instead of redesigning the entire system/taking advantage of the old world infrastructure still there
