In 2055, a coalition of world powers completed the Red Sea Dam, a 30-km structure spanning the Bab-el-Mandeb at the south end of the sea. Construction of the dam was initially proposed to permit the creation of up to 50 MW of electricity using water that would be allowed to enter and fall to replace that which evaporated. However, pursuing a prophecy to build a new homeland for the Palestinian people, the goal of this project became not merely to lower the Red Sea, but to "utterly destroy" it (and in so doing to increase the potential power generation long term). Therefore, additional dams were built to buttress the increasing difference in sea level, and the project was reinforced over a 2-km width between dams by depositing a functionally waterproof cement made with a large proportion of sodium and calcium carbonate [Note: those compounds are not themselves waterproof, but are added as a bulk structural material as a means of CO2 sequestration]. This was 1.8 cubic kilometers of material, enough to ensure even sustained nuclear attack does not flood the interior. Nonetheless, with humans emitting over 35 billion metric tons of CO2 per year, it was not nearly enough material to sequester the world's CO2 output even for one year!
By 2250 the outcome is a Red Sea surrounded by shipping/recreational canals at the old sea level. Streams, aqueducts and agriculture are abundant deeper inside, because the hundreds or thousands of meters the water is permitted to fall (before distribution or after it is returned as waste water and processed) provide enough energy to desalinate it. Evaporation of the water, which becomes lighter than air as water vapor, provided the energy to continue. The surface of the soil is being cleansed of salt by the infalling fresh water. Part of the electricity is also budgeted to return salty water from the bottom-most part of the former sea, and there should still be power left over to provide electricity and fresh water to the wider region.
Now the question: the very center of this sea is very deep, just over 3 km. Given the scale height of Earth's atmosphere is about 8.5 km, this means the air pressure is about 1.42 atmospheres. The environment should be very wet. Even if global warming has been partially reversed, the heat is likely extreme - perhaps worse than Death Valley. In addition, geological features associated with the seafloor spreading zone will be exposed to the air. A group of pilgrims seeks to visit this undeveloped region on foot, regarding the volcanic features to be a new Mount Horeb symbolizing the process of creation. We can assume they choose a less unfavorable moment in terms of weather. How severe will this environment be for them?
