Posted Thu Aug 7 2008: from McClatchy Newspapers:
Shrinking African lake imperils wildlife http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1218122127
"...Once among the largest lakes in the world at some 9,000 square miles, roughly the size of New Jersey Lake Chad has been decimated over the past four decades by rising temperatures, diminishing rainfall and a growing population that's using more water than ever before. Today, estimated at less than 2 percent of its original size, the lake's surface would barely cover Brooklyn and Manhattan."
