This is from a National Geographic article.
Note that the "upper Aral" is only intact because Kazakhstan has built a dam to "hold its water" from flowing over the border to Uzbekistan, which doesn't care at all about the Sea (and continues to force citizens slaves to pick cotton). Readers interested in the future of the Salton Sea should also read this, to see the damage of toxic agricultural dust that IID is responsible for. (Recall that I said IID should have its water seized and SOME of the compensating money used to remediate the Salton's bed.)
