Is it possible to lay a large undersea pipe to take melting ice water to the desert?

The Arctic ice sheet is melting causing sea levels to rise, is it possible to lay a large undersea pipe from the Arctic to the Sahara to take the fresh melt water to the desert to let in bloom and produce food?

  1. That is a very wonderful idea. Yes there is no reason why it cannot be done. After all underground gas pipes carry gas from Russia to Western Europe. When the first transatlantic telegraph cable was laid from Canada to Ireland it was considered a marvel of the age, and now there are numerous cables connecting the world in a massive global telecommunication network. Perhaps later this century as fresh water becomes scarce your idea may be considered as a viable project for ensuring water supplies in vulnerable areas such as the Middle East and North Africa. In my opinion at the moment such a project would be too costly and would not justify the relatively small volumes of water that would have to be pumped through thousands of miles of pipes. In other words it all about economics and consumption of limited energy resources.
