How The Netherlands Stopped The Wind

Tom Scott
http://tomscott.com – http://twitter.com/tomscott – The Delta Works, to the west of the Netherlands, are one of the modern wonders of the world. But there’s other, lesser-known infrastructure there too: including the Rozenburg Wind Wall, on the Caland Canal, which turns a dangerous, windy stretch of canal into a much more navigable bit of water. It’s a triumph of humanity over nature, and it’s astonishing.

Thanks to Dan W – http://twitter.com/iamdanw – for letting me borrow his footage from the busier parts of the port of Rotterdam!
