- 50 gigawatts is huge how on earth are they going to achieve this this could run like half of america. You happy i expaned the page :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:29, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
I've been looking, but I've not been able to find a picture of what the region would look like if this were to be done, so I'm wondering if anyone might know of one or if anyone would be able to produce a theoretical one. IkonicDeath
An absurd project
This project is an absurd. At first, who will wait for 300 years, until the energy be produced?At second, this region has solar power for less price and far less time. Agre22 (talk) 22:07, 8 June 2008 (UTC)
Why not just the Gulf of Suez?
Looking at the map, the Gulf of Suez is about the same shape, but smaller and shallower - why not just dam that little bit instead? Shouldn't it produce about the same ratio of power for the effort involved? Wnt (talk) 00:35, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
- Well, this dam would be possible, only with closing the strait and waiting for evaporation. Agre22 (talk) 13:05, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Depending on what the geographical terms mean, I may have just run across a sort of reference to this idea that is much older... 
- And the LORD will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His scorching wind will He shake His hand over the River, and will smite it into seven streams, and cause men to march over dry-shod.
- And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, like as there was for Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
- Interesting, it would be neat if there was a reliable source that plugged those two together.--NortyNort (Holla) 08:36, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Global warming mitigation
Not only could it be used to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, it might also cool the earth. I have read that the last ice age (or maybe it was some other ice age) started because the strait of Gibraltar was closed by a geological process, and the Mediterranean sea evaporated. This caused the oceans elsewhere on earth to get a little bit less salty, which in turn lead to growth in the polar ice caps. That growth caused reflection of more sun light which lowered the temperature and lead to even more ice growth and so on. Maybe this dam could do the same, although to a lesser extent? -- LM 14 Feb 2011. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:59, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
