    The "Dutch" weren't even a people 2000 years ago so the open comments means this program is full of Bull. What the Dutch did achieve is mind blowing in a very short period of time. So, so smart. The Dutch are the ones the wrote the book on water management. NO ONE ELSE.

    This is so ineffectual and short sighted. Climate change, higher storm surges, reclaimed land sinking? Yes, but the root cause is simply unwise people living below sea level. The only lasting solution is to move cities line New Orleans to higher ground and let nature reclaim the swamp. Over time, you can not keep what is taken from nature. It's a fools game.

    If the Netherlands went to learn from the what was done in Louisiana, this must have been before Katrina. I hope they readjusted their plans.

    You don't have evidence of more frequent more violent storms. You don't have evidence that rainfall is rising. Climate alarmism isn't helpful. The only truth in this video is that land is sinking and sea levels are rising ... at a rate of 1 mm per year.

    Climate change IS a reality, but whether humans can do anything about it is another question. Those waters were that warm and that high back when Erik the Red settled Greenland around 982, long before manufacturing.

    Too many blacks in New Orleans, so nobody cares if it sinks to the bottom of the gulf. Most of Louisiana still hasn't been rebuilt since Katrina because the blacks don't care, they just infested other cities instead. Katrina was like a giant toilet flushing the turds.

    If the Dutch all have to leave they will be welcome in many countries because they do not behave like muslims, africans, mexicans, Eastern Europeans, Iranians or Arabs. I would love to trade all Americas mexicans and blacks for Dutch people.

    Some dramatic stuff this is.... Yes the sea level is raising and yes we'll get more vicious storms that will test our Delta Works, but it's not like we're getting close to a certain death and destruction with every storm.

    this was obviously before hurricane katrina..lol..why would the dutch ask the u.s. how to build a dam and channel water?? are americans really that deluded to believe a statement like that? that's like canadians asking americans how to deal with the cold..

    Man, what a drama-queen. (The script writer and.or voice over). We, the Dutch, will find solutions again and again, like we've always done. In New York they will be using streched watertaxi's in Manhattan, because working on our water barriers has never stopped and never will. That's how we win, again and again.

    The RHINE river is among the most polluted on Earth, this idea to promote deposition from Rhine silts is risky if only for the persistent toxic chemicals which are inextricably mixed with the flow. Best you get Germany to clean up the river first, then think about inviting that silt onto farmland where food is grown or raised.

    Again with the stupid fear mongering. This hasn't got a thing to do with "global warming." As the narrator just explained, the dried land settles, which allows the sea to return. It's a constant cycle, made worse by the fact that much of this area is below sea level.
