"Dust blows from what was once the Aral Sea floor. Tragic mismanagement of a natural resource."
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
This is a sad reality humans must live with forever and something we as people must learn from. A man made disaster that occurred many years ago has a negative impact on areas surrounding the shrinking Aral Sea to this day. People cannot exploit an area of water this large, as this is not only harming the environment, but many human beings, as well
This startling picture from space of the Aral Sea is heartbreaking. The destruction of this inland sea is a terrible thing to behold.
The Aral Sea Basin has been a topic of conversation throughout geography for many reasons. What used to be filled with water is now blowing dust because its that dry? This basin is no longer a natural resource.
