If some billionaire bought Death Valley, built a 6ft. tunnel 50ft. below 
sea level from the Pacific Ocean to a "wall" in Death Valley, would the 
place flood? If we could flood it, how salty would it be(from evap)? What 
ecological factors would result from flooding the Valley? (snowy slopes or 
flooded plains or could it change the ecology of the Mid West?)
Curious since Death Valley is -150ft below sea level and huge. Would make 
a great lake!
