Both the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee are dying through over-abstraction of water. Israel’s profligate use of water from Lake Tiberius has lead to a virtual drying up of the Jordan River to such an extent that an Olympic athlete could jump over it in places. Both bodies of water are shrinking at an ever increasing rate as the inflow is insufficient to replenish them. Completion of the new dam between Syria and Jordan will further reduce the inflow to the catchment. Lateral thinking is required and we do have much time.
