"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?
The destruction that man can cause is sickening and will be our ultimate downfall as all the major resources of the world are used up for industry. The shrinking of the Aral Sea has had harsh consequences on the region making it much harder to sustain the populations in the area because agriculture and fishing industries have been ruined. Health problems and drought are now rampant in the area and it is all because of humankind.
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.
