Description

Description: The dead sea lies in the lowest elevation of a land , and contains the saltiest water in the world. This video shows businessmen complaining about the decrease in water levels of the dead sea in Jordan which has been clearly observable since the past years. The dead sea’s water degradation resulted in one third of the sea to dry out and lie there as an abandoned dry land. It is said to be man-made disaster affecting the dead sea levels to drop down a year after another.
