#12: The Salton Sea was created by accident during a construction project. It was never a 'natural' sea. It was basically a giant puddle that finally dried up.

Evan,The Salton Sea is drying up because of dams that have been built on the river and diverting the water to farmers crops.

In the mean time the big problem (how do you call it in English, the elephant in the room?) isn't seen. overpopulation. And that isn't a Western-world problem.

Harty,
Not overpopulation, consumption. If every country in the world consume as much as the US, we would need four planet Earths to fulfil our needs. On the other side of the globe, people living on a dollar per day.

Lottie,

Sure, because their third-world countries are over-populated and are collapsing under their own weight. Don't get me wrong, North America is on the way down as well, mostly due to mismanagement, but 1.35 billion Indians? It's no wonder they live on a dollar a day.
