Aral Sea tragedy

Check out this Huffington Post article about the Aral Sea in the former Soviet Union. The Aral Sea, once the 4th largest lake in the world, has shrunk by 90%! The aerial images are terrifying.

  1. That was a very interesting and shocking link.
    It's frightening to see how we are destroying our own resources. It's even more frightening to see how disease and death are on the upswing because of the shrinking sea.
    I truly hope it's not too late to salvage the remaining water source.
    Excellent post and great reminder that we must take more care in perserving our environment.
