    When people dig huge amounts of earth and rock for tunnels etc, why not put it on ships and take it to Holland and build up the land?

    Sort of a reverse of a cannel. Movable barriers have also been explored to protect New York harbor against weather events like Super Storm Sandy.

    Oh so it IS global warming! These climate fanatics can't seem to keep their propaganda talking points straight: in the 1970s man-made global cooling was the doomsday du jour; then it became global warming; next it morphed into "climate change"; now they say it's --- global warming again. And of course, it's all man-made. WE'RE ALL DOOMED!!!

    I don't know if you're going to be a genius enough to make a you know the ability to hold back 10 more feet of ocean you just going to have to write some of that off just like we in the United States are going to have to write off half of Manhattan and Louise what you call it New Orleans going to be gone just have to get over it and looking to be parts of Seattle that aren't going to be a bit so just going to have to adapt and hopefully you don't own be from property cuz it doesn't go to be worth a shit here pretty soon

    I live on the Kent coast in South East England and I don’t notice the tide levels rising. But to be safe governments had better put taxes up again. I’m not so sure about the river Rhine being nine hundred miles long, Maybe nine hundred kilometres long.

    Right at the start I noticed the bias of this reporter or whatever he is..... Any way I am dutch grow up and educated in Holland some of the narratives are plainly inaccurate and promotes climate change as a danger which is totally not true.... We the dutch know how to deal with water problems, me as a construction manager have done a number of projects in Holland and yes we always have to deal with water and it's problems.
    This person sounds like Holland is disappearing well he is surely not well informed or is biased trying to push climate change, he talks what happens in 1200...well well that was a loooooong time ago and things have changed..... we will adapt to counter the problems of water which we always have done... so the panic that this guy is projecting is a blatant lie and he must be associated withe the climate thief ALL GORE. a poor documentary ....

      +Steven Ratti You're trolling right? I'm from Florida. If you happen to notice, it's a peninsula... bordered by SEA WATER. The highest elevation is 345ft. If you try to drill a well too close to the coast you'll get brackish water. This has always been true. Here: tvclip.biz/video/ja8n9fm5fwe/video.html

    Yeah, and who paid for all these barriers? We, the Groningers, with our natural gas. Now we have a fucking VVD-government and a frigging population of Zeeland, who refuse to pay for the damage that is done to our villages and houses. Next time, please drown. Or otherwise, give us the freedom to live on houseboats or in campers, so we can protect ourselves from greedy governments and shortsighted citizenry.

    In the 1970's the scare tactic being used was "Global cooling"... They tried scaring people into thinking that a "new ice age is approaching". The "super smart people" suggested spreading coal on the poles of the planet would increase heating would "prevent pending doom"!

  • Loud Silence

    So, the narrator says that floods and storms are something to fear due to climate change, and then on the next sentence, he states that dutch engineers have been fighting this battle for 2000 years... pots! If a scientist can prove that a fart in Argentina affects the weather in Holland (screw the butterfly effect, just prove it), I wanna see that evidence, then I'll believe all the nonsense spewed by climate change looney tunes

    Learn how to pronounce Lake Pontchartrain... It's "PAHN-chə-trayn"... The 'r' is silent.. But he did at least pronounce New Orleans mostly right. Maybe not quite like the locals pronounce it, but at least he didn't pronounce the "Orleans" part with a long 'e' like the Yankees seem to like to do.

    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.
