The poor thing. Poor little sea.
The Aral Sea is drying up and soon it will be gone. This is a sea. A giant sea. People are drinking it all up. It's terrible news. It makes for great pictures though. Rusty shipwrecks in the middle of a desert. They're going to have to change all the maps. It's so big that it even shows up on globes. They're going to have to change all the globes.
The Aral Sea?
That's what our kids will say.
