Dead Sea Faces Environmental Disaster Without International Support

EIN GEDI, ISRAEL – SEPTEMBER 2: Visiting tourist Celine Saban (R), 22-years-old from Toulon in France, covers herself with rejuvenating mineral mud on September 2, 2004 at Ein Gedi Spa at the Dead Sea in southern Israel. The inland sea which separates between Israel and Jordan is retreating by about a meter a year as the two countries divert almost 90% of the Jordan River waters that for thousands of years fed the mineral-rich sea. They are now seeking international support for a plan to pipe water north from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea to rescue the shrinking sea.
