Sea Dries Up

Once the world's fourth-largest lake, the Aral sea has shrunk by 90 percent since the rivers that feed it were largely diverted in a Soviet project to boost cotton production in the arid region.

The drying up of the Aral Sea is one of the planet's most shocking environmental disasters.

Progress is killing us. Soon our extinction shall be brought upon by our own actions.
