Vast African Lake Levels Dropping Fast

3 posts in this topic

JINJA, Uganda (AP) -- At Jinja pier the rusty red hull of a Lake Victoria freighter sat barely afloat in water just six feet deep -- and dropping. “The scientists have to explain this,'' said ship's engineer Gabriel Maziku.

Across the bay, at a fish packing plant, fishermen had to wade ashore with their Nile perch in flat-bottomed boats, and heave the silvery catch up to a jetty that soon may be on dry land and out of reach entirely. Looking on, plant manager Ravee Ramanujam wondered about what's to come.

I am assuming the 60s to present day drop is correct, and that is very alarming. You do not hear much environmentally from Africa....

2 million birds now down to 30000. Most have moved to other lakes and Lake Nakuru has dried up before, but this time it is going to be different. I'm just glad I got to see all the flamingos and wildlife there about 17 years ago.

Our grandchildren and great grandchildren will never forgive us for what we are doing to the planet.

In retirement I hope to visit Africa, but there may be nothing to see in 30 years time.
