In the last 50 years, the Dead Sea, the world's saltiest body of water and lowest point on earth, has seen its surface area shrink by a third and its depth drop by 25 meters.

The water that once flowed into the Dead Sea from the River Jordan has been diverted by Syria, Jordan, Israel for agricultural and hydro-electrical projects.

Environmentalists are now warning that drastic action has to be taken to avert an ecological disaster as the Dead Sea drops by a metre every year.

I say bring in the water from the Red Sea if the thing is drying up. If the new water does not damage the mineral make up or salt production, I am all for it!
