Another early damming project

September 1930, and a plan conceived by a group of eminent English scientists to add 100,000 square miles to the overcrowded continents of Europe, is unveiled in Modern Mechanics. Interesting when juxtaposed with the German plan, of about the same vintage, to drain the Mediterranean (see earlier post re Atlantropa)
