  • very bad idea

  • Don't do it, you'll be sorry.

  • Another cracking idiocy easier said than done so what are we discussing here

  • Spain still remember the muslim invasion of the Iberian peninsula

  • is this suppose to be a joke ? i don't get it. is this your idea of dark humor ?

  • Australia is not a continent

  • Jesus Christ no... Giving them one more way to cross?... Protestant God pls help your lost souls

  • What is the name of this map projection?

  • We need to build walls with Africa not bridges or tunnels.

  • Fun fact: The bridge of Messina became a meme in Sicily

  • I love how europeans act like Americans yet insult them. Why does it matter if theres a tunnel or bridge connecting africa and europe? A refugee problem? Really?

  • africa is connected by bridges not land

  • In 1755 shay disturbed the precursor site caused the lisbon earthquake

  • They should build a suspended floating tunnel through the Strait of Gibraltar, like the one that is planned for the E39 project in Norway.

  • Why don't they build a floating bridge over Gibraltar détroit?

  • If the interest really was there a ferry service like the ones between Holland and England, and the ones in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, would actually be just as well as a tunnel or bridge. The key is big ferries financed not by tickets but by Euro-trade taxes. But EU does NOT want a better connection! Fear of immigrants is enormous. :/

  • Speaking of Europe euope is connected to Africa because of mellia and cauta

  • I thought it was the Dutch that gave this Idea.

  • Oh god no please !

  • These tunnels are in earthquake zones

  • 5:20 It's good that they would be connected together. Attempting to connecting them apart would be problematic.

  • 5:11 On the map, there are not 4, but *3* artificial islands. *GET IT RIGHT!!!* Also, there are *4* tunnels.

  • I wonder if someone will come up with an idea to build a tunnel to connect Europe with North America ? Perhaps across Russia and Alaska ??

  • fact: there is a tunnel that connects europe to asia in istanbul, it’s called “the eurasia tunnel” not from europe to africa of course, but still cool!

  • POV: you’re a bridge builder over the Mediterranean and you accidentally let go of your shift key

    • Bedrock: *I don’t have such weaknesses.*

  • Reliable and humurous, the kind of resource I'm looking for!

  • 2:16 even God doesn't want there to be a connection between Africa and Europe!

  • also, the bridge between Tunis and Palermo sits on the same fault line, Azores-Gibraltar transform fault line.

  • What's a kilometer?

  • Fun fact: all land is connected and we have these giant pools of salt water called oceans.

  • **The Arab Caliphate wants to know your location**

  • At least the track gauge is the same from Tunisia to Sicily. No so from Spain to Morocco.

  • I can't think of any reason that european people would want that, it will benefit it africans

  • Terrible idea.

  • No way we have too many Africans already

  • It took 6 yrs to build a channel underwater But in Bucharest it took 9 to build a metro station *bruh*

  • WHO in europe is interested to build (a very expensive) bridge to africa? What for?

  • Yes, insane, as Africa will be empty of people, wanting to immigrant to Europe.

  • Africa with Europe,NO THANKS. A WORD:NEVER.

  • Yah this is what Europe needs lol. They are already going to be majorly Muslim in 20 to 30 years which mean living under Muslim law. Which means if your gay or not Muslim good luck to you

  • It’s complicated by the sismic activity of the zone, is the break point between the euroasiatic plac and the african plac..,

    • @ALBER PAJARES You're right, the african plate is slowly coming Forward. I heard that modern tunnels are the safest place during an earthquake since the sismic waves just pass through the tunnel, tunnels generally dont absorb significant amounts of energy produced by the movement of tectonic plates

    • You can always build an helicopter bridge, cause till the floating bridge was discarded by dangerous..,

  • Nails in the coffin.

  • Idk if 3% of the worlds economy is a good enough reason to build a multi billion dollar tunnel

  • Lots of comments from Europeans wanting to keep Africans out, meanwhile forgetting that increased economic growth that such a tunnel would generate would also mean more incentives for Africans to remain in Africa. As mentioned, there are already ferries that offer the exact same service, and a railway line would have the exact same strict security measures. There is a reason why it's called "Fortress Europe", because it isn't at all easy to get into.

  • Also a floating submerged tunnel has been discussed across the strait of Gibraltar. The first such tunnel is also being built in Norway at the moment. Let's see whether it works out...

  • Let's be real, this is a far better plan than "Atlantropa"

  • Why in hell would do something stupid like this?

  • there goes your tax money . Go ahead, stupid left, build it, and right will donate massively to rebel organisations to send few torpedoes. and then stupid left will cry and ask for tax money refund. waaa

  • That sponsorship transition though 😏

  • Why not a tunnel or bridge between Italy and Albânia?

  • Could we somehow make a bridge to a more productive part of the world? Like Japan?

    • @UCpk2Boqmhp_z_V84YZTXJbg Why would you think creating this tunnel will change how migrant policy works? The eu alredy has a land border with morocco and pays them to stop migrants from crossing to ceuta and melilla, many immigrants that attempt get even shot. Even if this tunnel would be built crossing by boat would remain the most practical way to enter eu, immigrants wouldn't have a chance to cross from morocco, nobody does, crossing from turkey to greece would be immensely better than brutal morocco. There are major economic benefits, large ships and containers wouldn't be used anymore, cheap trucks would travel by road between the continents at a much lower price, jobs and trade would definitely increase, europe would have an advantage on importing cheap african materials and minerals since it would be connected by road. Immigrants will be stopped if the eu truly cares about keeping them out, it is easy to completely stop immigration when it comes to land and tunnel borders, the problem is the sea, north african nations like libya need to secure their borders on the south to stop subsaharan migration. Most immigrants that come to eu are subsaharan blacks that go to libya to cross the Mediterranean, libya is in anarchy now so there's no border control

    • @Stefano Gabbani No it wouldn't. Africa will stay the same - stagnated, unproductive and poor and Europe will have a crisis of new migrants pouring in, because for Africans it's easier to move to a rich and plentiful place like Europe, instead of fixing their economies at home. Only one side would benefit from it. Sad fact, but a true one. If any sort of road, bridge or tunnel is mad between the two continents, that'll happen.

    • A road tunnel from europe to africa would be more productive, european roads will be connecting Europe to the subsaharan highway, thus road Transportation would be possible from oslo to cape town, lots of money would be saved from Transportation, and transportation and trade in africa would increase

  • I'd rather see a tunnel from Libya, head towards Europe, then loop all the way to South Africa.

  • Why would you ever want to build a bridge to Africa??? We want to build a wall between Africa and Europe

  • umm what about turkey? pretty sure the two sides of Istanbul are much closer than Gibraltar and Sicily...

  • Please no.

  • Aren’t 5 of them connected? There is North and South america and no the darien gap doesn’t count its still land.

  • Earth: Just give me a bit, Imma ram Africa into Europe

  • the mediterrenean is a Sea, not an ocean... There are only 3 oceans in the world: indian, atlantic and pacific. Where have this guy learned geography? in kindergarten? and it has almost 4 M subscribers... that shows the level of education of people around the world.

    • The Arctic Ocean is offended and wants to know your location

  • Sounds like Europe has the same problems as united states has with every country we have south of us.

  • Name: Free Immigration Tunnel 😂

  • So a tunnel to funnel immigrants through? Cause that’s all I hear

  • There are earthquakes!

  • If only those idiots managed their $$ better, we would of had a bridge between Sicily n the mainland long ago

  • Dont! Please dont!

  • Maybe the money would be better spent developing North Africa. They have a lot of sun shine and desert land that could harness an enormous amount of solar power. And how about reclaiming the deserts like they are doing in Israel. What good is a tunnel to a starving Mother and her children?

  • Make a trump wall 14.3 km..😃😄😄😀😄😃😃😀😄

  • Build a floating bridge which is not uncommon. Check out the floating bridges over Lake Washington in Seattle.

  • A much, much bigger problem is does any country in Europe actually want a bridge from their country to Africa? Sort of, but really? Greece and parts of Italy already have all sorts of problems from boats arriving, and protecting their borders. In a better world, it would happen.

  • 1:00 wait a minute are we forgetting about the multiple bridges that span the Bosphorus? If you say: but Israel and Lebanon have a closed border, yes they do but you can't ignore that closed border going via Ukraine either

  • You should have used a map that shows depths of the ocean floor. 1:06 you don't have to go that far around, I think there are bridges at Istanbul. Regarding connecting Sicily to Italy: why build a suspension bridge? Use a floating bridge with a raised section for ships to pass under. That's what we have across our local lake. Or use a design like The Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island. Regarding connecting Africa: why build a bridge at all if it is only 3% of the world economy?

  • No European wants this

  • Illegal immigrants will love this tunnel 🤣🤣🤣

  • George Soros is very interested in this video...

  • wait, it’s called Afro-Eurasia? I called it Eurasica

  • Englisch subtitles please :(

  • The only rational way to install a tunnel at Gibraltar would be with a floating tube anchored by flexible moorings to ride out any seismic shifts, and incorporating a gentle s-curve to adjust to the movement without risk of kinking.

  • 0:40 Afro Eurasia is *world island*. Sri Lanka, Madagascar, UK, Japan, Java: Am I Joke to u??

  • Walking paths? On a 3300 meter long bridge?

  • Or you can continue to cross by boat.

  • Look this willl never happen. You summed it up in one of your first facts. the 1.3Bn having only 3%. It would do nothing good.

  • How about Alexandria in egypt to Greece

  • Considering that 200+ million Africans plan to invade Europe, that plan is obviously insane.

  • Insanely large megaproject that makes no economic sense... Sounds like it belongs in Dubai.....

  • Tunisia and Sicily are separated by ocean? That`s interesting.

  • I really being diggin deep in to this Atlantropa Project. But NOlong Algorithm is always suggesting me the similar types.

  • I like the idea of turning the Southern tip of Spain, the Northern tip of Morocco, and this strange place Gibraltar into multi-continental region where commuters cross the Ocean every day in a Norway-built tunnel.

  • Australia is not a continent. It’s a country. The correct term for the continent is “Oceania” or “Australasia”. Yeah, in US grade school they incorrectly taught us Australia too.

  • The people want a tunnel.

  • Insane. Correct word.

  • Even more reason to leave the EU

  • ya know, you could just get on a boat

  • The globalist wet dream.

  • Japan be like Daddy pick me up too!

  • Why doesnt Italy just kick Sicily to Africa?

  • Normal people don't want this. Only globalists and far left scum.

    • But this wont be used for population Exchange, it would be used for Transportation

    • It is like saying normal people would not want infrastructure

  • Just because we can build tunnels between continents doesn’t mean we have to y’all...I get the channel Tunnel, but there isn’t a big need for Northern Africa to Europe, most of Northern Africa is a giant and almost unpopulated dessert.

  • Aren’t south and North America connected by the Isthmus of Darien?

  • Ok....If Can be Guaranteed Construction in 7 Years CPM Will Fund Both Bridges Both Gibraltar and Sicily......But At this Price Or 1.5 Times More Maximum But it Should be Beneficial to Both Especially Africa and Europe Economically...... Alhamdulillah Inshallah By God Allah Subhan Taala Will Guidance Grace and Blessings Alhamdulillah Inshallah STAW........

  • 1:12 That would be a pretty weird situation... Britain being connected by tunnels to both France and Africa... 😉

  • Building a bridge between sicily and tunisia will never be achieved because they found out that sicily is moving westbound something like 5cm each year. So any bridge would break after a few decades..
