The Disappearing Seas

The Aral Sea in Central Asia and Middle East's Dead Sea are dying due to pollution and over-extraction of water.

"The development of national and international efforts to halt their decline and put in place programmes for regeneration are being hampered by political rivalries and conflict...he extent of the water level shrinkage already in the two seas suggests that decline will continue while politicians argue over national interests."
