When the rivers run dry

Downloaded an old radiotalk with Fred Pearce on his book "When the rivers run dry" from 2006 on iTunes. Probably another interesting book that should go to my reading list. I feel a bit depressed at the moment about not having enough time for all the reading and writing as I'd like do, well hopefully soon! Anyhow, it was an interesting talk as well, he mentioned amoung others the Aral Sea, which destiny probably is familiar to everyone. Found these impressive pictures of how the sea had run dry since they started diverting the water to the farming of cotton in the desert instead.
