Do you know the truth about the disappearing sea?

Aside from reports that rivers and lakes are disappearing due to global warming. On the other hand, there are shocking reports that the sea is disappearing due to the diversion of rivers.

Geologists refer to the Aral Sea as the fourth largest lake in the world. The situation in the Aral Sea in Central Asia is shocking. The Aral Sea is shrinking because of the diversion of two rivers, the Amudarya and the Sirdarya. The Aral Sea region has shrunk by 90 percent in the last 50 years.

The current situation is that it is not surprising that the area will fall into the hands of realtors in a few more decades. The Aral Sea, which borders the former Soviet Union of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, covers an area of ​​67,339 sq km at one time. Was of area.

The fact that researchers and speakers on water management do not take this into account has had such an impact on the extent to which their opinion does not get complete. The Aral Sea level continues to fall by 31 to 35 inches each year. Photos taken every decade show its impact. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who traveled by helicopter to investigate the impact, called on all Central Asian leaders to work together to address the problem of sea erosion. The story of the Aral Sea is the largest environmental disaster in the world. The damage has been enough to cause great shock.

He put forward the harsh criticism that all leaders should sit together and forget the differences within themselves and prevent this environmental catastrophe. Not only Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan but also countries like Tajikistan are raising the water issue.

These countries are focused on finding solutions to how water is shared. But Ban Ki-moon has pointed out that existence is going to go away. The significant Aral Sea has now become a mere sandy area without water. Experts say the sandstorm that forms in the area carries sand to Denmark, Sweden, and Finland in the north and to Japan in the east. This sandy wind also affects people in an environment where new and new are already developing various diseases.

While there is a wide-ranging discussion on global warming, water management experts say that for now, there is also a need for discussion on how to properly use existing water. Various countries, including India, are consulting on whether to connect and divert existing rivers to solve the water problem. Their view is that without such consultation in the short term, discussions on a long-term plan considering the fate of the Aral Sea will help save the globe.
