UN: "A Shocking Disaster"
I'm sorry I've been a bit haphazard in the regularity of my blog posting - indeed, I'm entering the last exams of my university career, so I've been a bit distracted.
However, I did want to post this bit of news up, or more accurately, photos of the drying of the Aral sea in Central Asia.
The Huffington Post posted the photos up late last week, showing how the lake has shrunk by about 90% in recent years. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Sunday that the drying of the sea is one of the planet's 'shocking disasters'
"It is clearly one of the worst disasters, environmental disasters of the world. I was so shocked," he said.
A pretty sad sight indeed.
