In “A. A. Gill is Away”. I have been reading about Aral sea. It just astonishes me of what a destructive species humans are. There is lot of debate going on in India about Narmada dam but it is more from human relocation perspective than from ecology perspective. Aral sea was supposed to be 4th largest inland water body in the world. They have lost more than 80% of the water. Gill also talks about level of salt being high up.
After reading about it, I was trying to read more details on Internet and I found this interesting article.
