    Soviet irrigation caused The Aral to disappear & The Caspian to halve 😔 Yes we’ve got to act now against overused or unsustainable crops like cotton in the Darling Murray basin

    Sad state of affairs. In Australia this is happening now because of Chinese cotton. We need water for our rivers not more cotton for disposable fashion.

    I was there last year - such a tragic man made catastrophe. So much life (animals and fishermen/...) is gone now

    Even more terrible is the fact that on a small island stands an old rustic abandoned Russian laboratory full of chemicals and bacterial and virus researches.

    Legend has it that Borat went for a swim there in his monokini but the water receded to avoid him.

    Reading the book Putin’s People right now and getting a really unique glimpse into the complete corruption and inefficiency of the former Soviet Union and the Russia that followed. It’s quite shocking. Last year I was in Uzbekistan and they had severe water shortages. Cotton is still a big export there but most of the water now comes from Tajikistan. It’s hard to understand how inept people can completely destroy their countries’ natural habitat for some financial gains and because there is no free legal system to speak of, nobody is held accountable.
