It’s dead, see?
How else would you describe it?
14/06/2007

The saltiest body on the earth, glossy, biblical and blessed with thousands of rare fish, bird species, is shrinking dramatically due to human efforts – river diversions, mineral extraction – and natural ones, like plain old evaporation. The water level of Dead Sea has been receding by around three feet a year for the past 25 years. While 90% of the water from Jordan River was keeping the sea alive, recent water diversions for drinking and agriculture in Jordan and Israel, have worsened the situation. Industrial activity is the other contributor to the Dead Sea’s problems. Massive evaporation ponds, used by firms to vaporise water in order to extract minerals, is responsible for a quarter of the Dead Sea’s shrinkage. Both Jordan and Israel have extracted minerals from around the Dead Sea indiscriminately. But now the treasure is in mortal danger. Can the impending death of Dead Sea do what politics could not, by bringing Palestine, Jordan and Israel to give another life to Dead Sea? When nations couldn’t care less about human life, what’s a sea, for God’s sake!
