Aral Sea: Man-made environmental disaster - BBC News
 
02:30
Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews The disappearance of the Aral Sea in Central Asia is one of the world's greatest man-made disasters. In Kazakhstan, with the help of the World Bank, more than $80million have been spent trying to save the most northern part of the sea but this has only benefited a few hundred people. In this film, we speak to people still living in deserted fishing ports, to see how their lives have changed, and to find out whether they believe that they'll ever see the sea again.

The Shrinking Aral Sea - Uzbekistan
 
13:24
July 2001 For 50 years Soviet leaders diverted the rivers which feed the sea to irrigate cotton. And when it became clear that the land wasn't suited for the thirsty crop the planners simply increased the use of hazardous chemicals. "It is the world's largest man- made environmental disaster", says Ian Small for Medecins Sans Frontiers in Uzbekistan. The charity usually operates in war zones, but for the first time it has now set up a project devoted solely to an environmental catastrophe. The war here is against tuberculosis, kidney disease and cancers - plaguing the people of the region. Some are caused by toxins, some by the high levels of salt in the water. "Almost nothing grows and it's hard for people -- salt concentrates in their joints and they can't walk for a long time...", says Aigali Tankimalov who sailed the Aral Sea for 29 years. Now the wreck of the vessel he commanded in the navy sits opposite his front door -- and the nearest water is 100 kilometres away. The last of the 20 or so species of fish that lived in the Aral Sea died out in the 1980s, the victims of an environmental catastrophe. Yet despite the dramatic evidence of environmental destruction, Uzbekistan's new leaders continue to grow cotton and scientist fear the damage is irreparable.

Aral Sea, Cotton, Environmental Disaster, Lethal Pesticides

Other videos about disastrous cotton industry http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=979E3A7411F692DC Uzbekistan is the second largest exporter of cotton in the world, selling over 800,000 tonnes of cotton every year. Europe is its major buyer. But while the former Soviet Republic is at the forefront of global cotton production, its human rights and environmental record lags far behind the rest of the world. Forced child labour, human rights violations, excessive pesticide use, the draining of an ocean and severe poverty are all rife in cotton production in Uzbekistan.

Resurrecting the Aral Sea

Aral Sea (2007): For decades, the Aral Sea has been described as dying and beyond salvation. But now, the water is flowing back, bringing economic revival and hope for the future. For downloads and more information visit http://www.journeyman.tv/57367/short-films/aral-sea.html Fifty years ago, the Soviets diverted the rivers that fed into the Aral sea to irrigate crops. The sea shrunk to half its size, salinity increased, the natural ecosystem collapsed and people moved away in search of jobs. But now, thanks to a new dam, water levels have risen by 4 meters. People are returning in the hope the sea will make a full recovery. As one man states; "If the sea comes back, life will change for the better".

Cruise Ships - Toxic Waste on the High Seas | Global 3000

More than twenty million people go on cruises each year. Cruise ships burn heavy oil full of pollutants, which are emitted unfiltered into the atmosphere. It does not have to be this way. If the vessels burned diesel instead, the emissions would be significantly reduced, though the fuel costs would rise.

Images of Our Changing World

Amazing before and after satellite images taken from the International Space Station show how quickly our dynamic, but fragile planet can change. FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ NASA's Images of Change: http://go.nasa.gov/2iQG005 Music: Opus One by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Video conceptualized, co-written, narrated, and produced by Bryce Plank Video editing and effects by Robin West Researched and co-written by Juliet Saunders Script: These before and after images demonstrate how quickly our dynamic, but fragile planet can change. The Aral Sea in central Asia was once the fourth largest lake in the world. In the 1960’s, the Soviet Union began using it to help grow crops. These images were taken just 14 years apart. Losing the moderating influence of this large body of water has made the region’s winters colder and summers hotter. In 2011, NASA captured a new volcanic island emerging in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen. It’s part of the Red Sea Rift where the African and Arabian tectonic plates meet, the island chain gained an additional rock in 2013 that doesn’t even appear in this photograph. By tapping water sources beneath the sands of Saudi Arabia, engineers turned the desert into an oasis. But with only 50 more years of groundwater supply left, the clock is ticking. Farmers could survive though by switching to greenhouse farming with drip irrigation. The Muir Glacier in Alaska has been documented for 120 years. Named for Scottish naturalist and writer John Muir, the glacier used to fill this entire inlet. This photo taken in 2004 shows how warmer temperatures have caused its shocking, 31-mile retreat. It may seem like a winter wonderland, but many of Yellowstone National Park’s 2 million-plus acres are now prone to wildfire. Longer, drier summers are a big problem. But this 2016 image actually shows how Yellowstone has recovered from the 1988 fire that consumed more than half of the park. And in 1984, Brazil plugged the Jamari river with the Samuel hydroelectric dam. The reservoir it created flooded the upstream forest. The image on the right also captures the effects of deforestation that could cut the Amazon to just 47% of its original size by 2030. The Binhai New Area in China, now a manufacturing powerhouse, was once salt farms and marshland. As you can see, the growth, which began in 1990, has extended into the Bohai Sea and is only expected to continue as the area becomes integrated into the Jing-Jin-Ji megalopolis. The delta where the Omo river meets Africa’s Lake Turkana used to be contained entirely within Ethiopia, but it’s grown so big it’s now located mainly in Kenya. It’s expanded as the lake’s water level has been reduced by less rain, higher temperatures, and agricultural activity. And here we have an extremely remote area in the harsh conditions of Kazakhstan near the Caspian Sea which shows the development of production facilities to take advantage of oil and gas deposits. Those settlements you see are to house workers, which demonstrates the lengths humans will go for a good paying job. And then we have Iran’s lake Urmia which changed color from green to red in a matter of weeks last summer. The culprit? A combination of algae and bacteria that causes the change when the weather gets hot and the lake begins to evaporate, increasing its salinity, or saltiness. Well I hope this gave you a little more appreciation for the natural world surrounding you wherever you find yourself watching this video. Until next time, for TDC, I’m Bryce Plank.

The Aral Sea story
 
03:07
I did this for a final project in my international relations class. I'm quite interested in Central Asia and the Aral Sea region, so I did this to teach people a little bit about what's happened there in the past 50 years. This story really shows how much of an impact humans can have on the environment in a very short time. It's an important story to tell, but I've found that few people really know what's going on. Imagine if what North America would be like if both Lake Erie and Lake Ontario disappeared. Well, that's the amount of water that the Aral Sea has lost. To learn more about the Aral Sea and current efforts to bring it back: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aral_Sea http://visearth.ucsd.edu/VisE_Int/aralsea/index.html http://earthshots.usgs.gov/Aral/Aral http://unimaps.com/aral-sea/index.html http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/2270081.html The music is: "The Iron Sea," by Keane (awesome band with beautiful music- go buy their stuff asap!)

Top 10 Most Dangerous Places To Visit
 
06:07
Top 10 Most Dangerous Places To Visit At number 10, The Korean Demilitarized zone One might think that a demilitarized zone would be a safe place to go, but it's otherwise. The word “demilitarized” is a bit misleading since it refers to a stretch of land between the borders of North Korea and South Korea, which could also be called a no-man’s-land. Within the 250-kilometer stretch of land, which is approximately 4 kilometers wide, there exists the largest accumulation of antipersonnel land mines on the planet. At number 9, Anthrax Islands, It refer to three sites used for hazardous biological disease testing. Gruinard, a Scottish island in the United Kingdom used in World War II Vozrozhdeniya, an island in the Aral Sea used by the Soviet Union in the Cold War Plum Island (New York), an island off Long Island, New York in the United States, the location of a testing lab for hazardous livestock diseases. At number 8, Picher, Oklahoma Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal- contaminated mine tailings heaped throughout the area. It's a no man landzone now. At number 7, Gilman, Colorado Gilman is an abandoned mining town in southeastern Eagle County, Colorado, United States. Once a center of lead and zinc mining, was abandoned in 1984 by order of the Environmental Protection Agency because of toxic pollutants, including contamination of the ground water. Humans are prohibited. At number 6, Bikini Atoll known for the nuclear testing the United States conducted on it during the 1940s and 1950s, in which the indigenous population were removed. Left the islands contaminated with enough radioactivity to keep away humans. At number 5, Wittenoom, Australia Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth of Western Australia. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, three residents still live in the town as of 2018, which receives no government services. At number 4, Centralia, Pennsylvania Centralia is a borough and near-ghost town in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, United States. Its population has dwindled from more than 1,000 residents in 1980 to 63 by 1990, to only seven in 2013, a result of the coal mine fire which has been burning beneath the borough since 1962. The underground fire is still burning as of 2018 and may continue to do so for 250 years. At number 3, Aral Sea The Aral Sea was once a large lake between the borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. But thanks to global climate change, the lake is ostensibly gone. The sea began shrinking, due to a Soviet plan in the 1960s, to reroute several of the rivers feeding it. But most of the water, has evaporated, thanks to the increase in global temperatures. called as “one of the planet’s worst environmental disasters. Now the eastern basin of the Aral Sea is now known as the Aralkum Desert ! At Number 2, Fukushima Exclusion Zone, Japan Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was an energy accident at the Nuclear Power Plant, initiated primarily by the tsunami following the Tōhoku earthquake on 11 March 2011. Immediately after the tsunami disabled the emergency generators that would have provided power to control and operate the pumps necessary to cool the reactors. The insufficient cooling led to three nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen-air explosions, and the release of radioactive material.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT 06: Shrinking lake, central Asia
 
01:26
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT 06: Shrinking lake, central Asia The Aral Sea was the fourth largest lake in the world until the 1960s, when the Soviet Union diverted water from the rivers that fed the lake so cotton and other crops could be grown in the arid plains of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. The black outline shows the approximate coastline of the lake in 1960. By the time of the 2000 image, the Northern Aral Sea had separated from the Southern Aral Sea, which itself had split into eastern and western lobes. A dam built in 2005 helped the northern sea recover much of its water level at the expense of the southern sea. Dry conditions in 2014 caused the southern sea’s eastern lobe to dry up completely for the first time in modern times. The loss of the moderating influence of such a large body of water has made the region’s winters colder and summers hotter and drier. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Source: http://climate.nasa.gov/state_of_flux#Aral_Sea_930x463.jpg Music: Stellardrone - Galaxies (CC BY) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Environmental change is defined as a change or disturbance of the environment caused by human influences or natural ecological processes.

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World - "It's A Girl" : Evan Grae Davis at TEDxGateway
 
11:12
About the speaker: From the Aral Sea disaster in Eastern Europe to poverty in Africa to social transformation among tribal groups of South America, 'It's a Girl' director Evan Grae Davis has traveled the globe with camera in hand for 16 years. Evan has dedicated his career to advocating for social justice through writing and directing short documentaries and educational videos championing the cause of the poor and exploited. Evan draws from his experience and passion as he lends leadership to Shadowline Films, a team of filmmakers who share a common concern for the critical issues of our time. It's a Girl is his first feature-length documentary. It's a girl, a film being released this year, documents the practice of killing unwanted baby girls in South Asia. The trailer's most chilling scene is one with an Indian woman who, unable to contain her laughter, confesses to having killed eight infant daughters. The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are 'missing'. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year. Lianyungang in China has the worst infant gender ratio on record with 163 boys born for every 100 girls. Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan are also countries in which unwanted female babies are aborted, killed or abandoned. About the talk: Evan talks about the global problem of female genocide using some eye opening statistics, powerful real life experiences and most importantly through his documentary making journey. His documentary is called "It's a girl". ----------- In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Is the Three Gorges Dam a Ticking Time Bomb?

Damning the Three Gorges (2008): Are the 400 million people living in the Yangtze basin paying the price for living beside the world's largest hydroelectric dam? Scientists fear it could spark a geological disaster. Subscribe to journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures The dam was built to ease flooding and power China's industrial heartland but its facing major problems. "Ever since the water level went up... cracks began to appear in the walls," says one villager. Yet some say the benefits of lowering pollution far outweighs the negatives. "The electricity generated by the dam is equivalent to the power generated by 50 million tonnes of coal."

Astana Myth Book Trailer
 
01:46
Astana – Architecture, Myth, and Destiny provides an entirely unique perspective on the three most important issues of our time: environmental pollution, religious extremism, and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Remarkably, Dr. Albo finds the solution to these imminent global threats encoded in the architecture of Astana, Kazakhstan, a modern-day mecca of conspiracy theories about Freemasonry and the Illuminati. After a century of ghastly labour camps, forced collectivization, secret nuclear tests, and near environmental destruction (the drying up of the Aral Sea), Kazakhstan has emerged to become one of the most strategically important countries in the world. And like a mythical phoenix, it has risen from the ashes to become a global exemplar of peace, tolerance, and sustainability. Veiled within the pages of the book is the Astana Challenge, an enigma of secrets and mysteries that, when solved, reveals a hidden message. The first person to decipher its exact wording will win an all-expense paid luxury vacation to Astana valued at $30,000.
