The Next Aral Sea? Caspian Suffers Impact Of Pollution, Climate Change
Disappearing seals, plummeting fish stocks, and a falling water level all point to the deteriorating health of the Caspian Sea. Ahead of Earth Day, observed on April 22, environmentalists in Azerbaijan have warned that it will take rapid action to save the Caspian from the fate of the Aral Sea.

Seals, caviar and oil: Caspian Sea under threat from pollution
Bordered by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan, the 1,000-kilometre-long Caspian is the world's largest inland body of water. It is home to a range of native species -- from the seals to Caspian turtles and the famed beluga sturgeon -- and also to vast energy reserves, estimated at 50 billion barrels of oil. But pollution from the extraction of that oil and gas, along with declining water-levels due to climate change, has left many species under threat and the future of the sea itself at risk.

Scientists May Have Identified Why The Caspian Sea Is Shrinking
A team of researchers from universities around the world have joined together to determine why the Caspian Sea is shrinking. In the study published last month in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the team says, "With continued warming in the northern hemisphere, one can expect yearly accumulated evaporation rates over the Caspian Sea to continue increasing for the foreseeable future." Evaporation is closely related to rising temperatures, a trend expected to continue with climate change. The Caspian Sea and its resources are of much interest to the surrounding countries, and while scientists can't be certain, the future of the sea appears to be at risk. http://gizmodo.com/scientists-think-they-know-why-the-caspian-sea-is-shrin-1798538633 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Aral Sea: Man-made environmental disaster - BBC News
Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

🇬🇷Greece builds pipeline to transport natural gas from Caspian Sea l Al Jazeera English
Greece is known for its history and climate, but not for oil and gas. That may be about to change with a new pipeline being completed across the north of the country that will transport natural gas from the Caspian Sea to Western Europe. It's part of a European Union policy to move away from dependence on Russian gas after shipments were stopped for two weeks during the 2009 Ukraine crisis, causing shortages in southeastern Europe.

The Dead Sea is drying up at an alarming rate
The Dead Sea has already lost more than one third of its surface area over the years. The water level is currently dropping by over 1 meter every year and its shoreline is expected to drop from 411 meters to 430 meters below sea level by 2020, according to the environmentalist group EcoPeace Middle East. Traditionally, the Jordan River is the Dead Sea’s inflow source. However, 50 years ago it was diverted to supply cities, reducing the water inflow level to the Dead Sea to just 5% of its original volume. The hot and dry climate of the region makes it difficult for the Dead Sea to restore itself. That added to the rapid loss of water has resulted in the increased salinity of the lake. The group also points out that the Dead Sea is threatened by cosmetic companies that extract mineral water from the region to make beauty products. Hotels and attractions built along the shoreline also release untreated sewage into the Dead Sea. Even though the Dead Sea does not have any wildlife in itself, the region around it is known for supporting several endangered species such as ibexes, leopards and the indigenous Dead Sea Sparrow. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Before-And-After Satellite Images of Earth from Space
Amazing before and after satellite images taken from the International Space Station show how quickly our dynamic, but fragile planet can change. FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ NASA's Images of Change: http://go.nasa.gov/2iQG005 Music: Opus One by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Video conceptualized, co-written, narrated, and produced by Bryce Plank Video editing and effects by Robin West Researched and co-written by Juliet Saunders Script: These before and after images demonstrate how quickly our dynamic, but fragile planet can change. The Aral Sea in central Asia was once the fourth largest lake in the world. In the 1960’s, the Soviet Union began using it to help grow crops. These images were taken just 14 years apart. Losing the moderating influence of this large body of water has made the region’s winters colder and summers hotter. In 2011, NASA captured a new volcanic island emerging in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen. It’s part of the Red Sea Rift where the African and Arabian tectonic plates meet, the island chain gained an additional rock in 2013 that doesn’t even appear in this photograph. By tapping water sources beneath the sands of Saudi Arabia, engineers turned the desert into an oasis. But with only 50 more years of groundwater supply left, the clock is ticking. Farmers could survive though by switching to greenhouse farming with drip irrigation. The Muir Glacier in Alaska has been documented for 120 years. Named for Scottish naturalist and writer John Muir, the glacier used to fill this entire inlet. This photo taken in 2004 shows how warmer temperatures have caused its shocking, 31-mile retreat. It may seem like a winter wonderland, but many of Yellowstone National Park’s 2 million-plus acres are now prone to wildfire. Longer, drier summers are a big problem. But this 2016 image actually shows how Yellowstone has recovered from the 1988 fire that consumed more than half of the park. And in 1984, Brazil plugged the Jamari river with the Samuel hydroelectric dam. The reservoir it created flooded the upstream forest. The image on the right also captures the effects of deforestation that could cut the Amazon to just 47% of its original size by 2030. The Binhai New Area in China, now a manufacturing powerhouse, was once salt farms and marshland. As you can see, the growth, which began in 1990, has extended into the Bohai Sea and is only expected to continue as the area becomes integrated into the Jing-Jin-Ji megalopolis. The delta where the Omo river meets Africa’s Lake Turkana used to be contained entirely within Ethiopia, but it’s grown so big it’s now located mainly in Kenya. It’s expanded as the lake’s water level has been reduced by less rain, higher temperatures, and agricultural activity. And here we have an extremely remote area in the harsh conditions of Kazakhstan near the Caspian Sea which shows the development of production facilities to take advantage of oil and gas deposits. Those settlements you see are to house workers, which demonstrates the lengths humans will go for a good paying job. And then we have Iran’s lake Urmia which changed color from green to red in a matter of weeks last summer. The culprit? A combination of algae and bacteria that causes the change when the weather gets hot and the lake begins to evaporate, increasing its salinity, or saltiness. Well I hope this gave you a little more appreciation for the natural world surrounding you wherever you find yourself watching this video. Until next time, for TDC, I’m Bryce Plank.

The region also holds two essential trade passages that connect East Asia, North America, and Europe. In other words, there’s tremendous potential in the Arctic and climate change is forcing nations to reevaluate their national interests. In a previous report, we went over the region’s territorial claims, legal proceedings, and the fact that every Arctic nation has made claims in the Northern Hemisphere. The ongoing disputes are legally complicated, but no other country is as well prepared to dominate the Arctic as Russia.

Caspian Sea, Baku Region, Azerbaijan, Eurasia
The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed inland body of water on Earth by area, variously classed as the world's largest lake or a full-fledged sea. The sea has a surface area of 371,000 km2 (143,200 sq mi) (not including Garabogazköl Aylagy) and a volume of 78,200 km3 (18,800 cu mi). It is in an endorheic basin (it has no outflows) and is bounded to the northwest by Russia, to the west by Azerbaijan, to the south by Iran, to the southeast by Turkmenistan, and to the northeast by Kazakhstan. The ancient inhabitants of its coast perceived the Caspian Sea as an ocean, probably because of its saltiness and seeming boundlessness. It has a salinity of approximately 1.2%, about a third the salinity of most seawater. The Caspian Sea, like the Aral Sea and Black Sea, is a remnant of the ancient Paratethys Sea. It became landlocked about 5.5 million years ago due to tectonic uplift and a fall in sea level. During warm and dry climatic periods, the landlocked sea has all but dried up, depositing evaporitic sediments like halite that have become covered by wind-blown deposits and were sealed off as an evaporite sink when cool, wet climates refilled the basin. Due to the current inflow of fresh water, the Caspian Sea is a freshwater lake in its northern portions. It is more saline on the Iranian shore, where the catchment basin contributes little flow. Currently, the mean salinity of the Caspian is one third that of the Earth's oceans. The Garabogazköl embayment, which dried up when water flow from the main body of the Caspian was blocked in the 1980s but has since been restored, routinely exceeds oceanic salinity by a factor of 10. The Caspian Sea is the largest inland body of water in the world and accounts for 40 to 44% of the total lacustrine waters of the world. The coastlines of the Caspian are shared by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan. The Caspian is divided into three distinct physical regions: the Northern, Middle, and Southern Caspian. The Northern--Middle boundary is the Mangyshlak Threshold, which runs through Chechen Island and Cape Tiub-Karagan. The Middle--Southern boundary is the Apsheron Threshold, a sill of tectonic origin between the Eurasian continent and an oceanic remnant, that runs through Zhiloi Island and Cape Kuuli. The Garabogazköl bay is the saline eastern inlet of the Caspian, which is part of Turkmenistan and at times has been a lake in its own right due to the isthmus which cuts it off from the Caspian. Divisions between the three regions are dramatic. The Northern Caspian only includes the Caspian shelf, and is very shallow; it accounts for less than 1% of the total water volume with an average depth of only 5--6 metres (16--20 ft). The sea noticeably drops off towards the Middle Caspian, where the average depth is 190 metres (620 ft). The Southern Caspian is the deepest, with oceanic depths of over 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). The Middle and Southern Caspian account for 33% and 66% of the total water volume, respectively. The northern portion of the Caspian Sea typically freezes in the winter, and in the coldest winters ice forms in the south as well. Over 130 rivers provide inflow to the Caspian, with the Volga River being the largest. A second affluent, the Ural River, flows in from the north, and the Kura River flows into the sea from the west. In the past, the Amu Darya (Oxus) of Central Asia in the east often changed course to empty into the Caspian through a now-desiccated riverbed called the Uzboy River, as did the Syr Darya farther north. The Caspian also has several small islands; they are primarily located in the North and have a collective land area of roughly 2,000 km2 (770 sq mi). Adjacent to the North Caspian is the Caspian Depression, a low-lying region 27 metres (89 ft) below sea level. The Central Asian steppes stretch across the northeast coast, while the Caucasus mountains hug the Western shore. The biomes to both the north and east are characterized by cold, continental deserts. Conversely, the climate to the southwest and south are generally warm with uneven elevation due to a mix of highlands and mountain ranges; the drastic changes in climate alongside the Caspian have led to a great deal of biodiversity in the region. The Caspian Sea has numerous islands throughout, all of them near the coasts. There are none in the deeper parts of the Sea. Ogurja Ada is the largest island. The island is 37 km (23 mi) long, with gazelles roaming freely on it. In the North Caspian, the majority of the islands are small and uninhabited, like the Tyuleniy Archipelago, an Important Bird Area (IBA), although some of them have human settlements.

Caspean Sea Final
UN Climate Change Conference 2015
On Wednesday, the Center for Economic and Political Studies held a meeting at Ganceli Plaza Hotel. The meeting was attended by local environmentalists and ecologists who discussed Azerbaijan's contributions to the struggle against climate changes. During the meeting, participants discussed the problem of climate change, Azerbaijan's influence on global climate changes, the impact of solid waste, and perspectives on renewable energy resources. The question of whether Azerbaijan is doing enough to prevent domestic impacts of climate changes was also considered. A representative of the Ministry of Ecology, Amil Sefiyev, spoke, saying that in terms of the speed of environmental progress, Azerbaijan is 2nd after Latvia, out of 132 countries, according to data from Yelsk University in the US. However, the scientists believe that the environmental situation in Azerbaijan remains challenging, and reported that Yelsk University lists Azerbaijan in 111th place according to levels of environnmental pollution. During the meeting, the president of the Ecology and Environment Academy, Fagan Aliyev said that the Azerbaijani government's s failure to adopt a dedicated program for this issue, or to allocate funding for this issue, together with weak institutional and technological capacity, and a lack of comprehensive ecological information has slowed the development of renewable energy resources and the struggle against climate changes. Studies indicate that over the past 6 decades, the temperature in Azerbaijan has increased by 0,2 - 0,5 degrees depending on the region and land relief. Climate change will pave the way for drought and land desertification. The Director of the Center for Economic and Political Studies, Sabit Bagirov, said that Azerbaijani society must be ready to address this issue.

The shrinking of the Aral Sea -  "One of the planet's worst environmental disasters"
The shrinking of the Aral Sea has been called "one of the planet's worst environmental disasters". The region's once prosperous fishing industry has been essentially destroyed, bringing unemployment and economic hardship. The Aral Sea region is also heavily polluted, with consequent serious public health problems. The retreat of the sea has reportedly also caused local climate change, with summers becoming hotter and drier, and winters colder and longer. Put together for the MSc in Environmental Technology.

Where are the Wetlands HD
Every year on 2nd February “World Wetlands Day” is celebrated throughout the globe. The day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2nd February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea. To mark the role of wetlands in disaster risk mitigation and weather hazards this year’s theme was “Wetlands and Climate Change.” The grim situation of water in most of the parts of the country is turning out to be a problem for survival. Therefore, we must save water. On the occasion a film “Where are the Wetlands?” was shot in one of the villages bearing the brunt of climate change. The film is an eye opener that takes you to an Indian village Sisodiyon ka Guda located in Udaipur (Rajasthan). Every year the village faces acute shortage of water which leaves people helpless to deal with livelihoods and routine activities. The water scarcity is blamed to undulating terrain, temperature extremes and low and sporadic rainfall. This has made area unfit to carry out livelihoods. There are hardly any reservoirs and water harvesting mechanisms. The varying mood of climate has posed a great challenge especially for the women. The land behaviour coupled with climatic lash bounds to ask a question “Where are the Wetlands?” As a solution to the climatic variations the film also presents the efforts of community women to prepare climate change adaptation measures to increase the possibility of harvesting every drop of rain water.

Milestone 33: Night Crossing — Aboard the MV Fikret Emirov on the Caspian Sea
We left Baku in the time of the khazri — the cold north wind that blows bluely across the Caspian Sea in the winter. The cargo ship was the MV Fikret Emirov, named after an Azeri composer of the Soviet period. The night Caspian stretched the color of charcoal. The sea was five million and a half years old and it expanded and contracted through the ages with the changes in climate: a vast systole and diastole of dilute saltwater beating at the very edge of Asia, at the last rim of Europe. If not a heart — then an eye. A teary, black pupil gazing up at the Milky Way. The wind blew and the same three seagulls drafted on the superstructure all the way across, from the Caucasus to Central Asia. The birds reached a new subcontinent without hardly flicking a wing.

Caspian Oil Rig Fire Kills 32: 26 workers reportedly rescued from the platform near Azerbaijan
Thirty-two workers have died after an offshore oil platform operated by Azerbaijan's state energy company SOCAR caught fire in the Caspian Sea. SOCAR said the fire on a platform in Azerbaijan's Guneshli oil field started after a gas pipeline on the platform was damaged in heavy wind. It said rescue attempts were being complicated by a severe storm. SOCAR said on its Facebook page on Saturday (December 5) that 26 workers had been rescued from the platform.

2018 Fall Meeting Press Conference: First results from NASA’s new ice-measuring space laser
Glacier crevasses, cracks in sea ice and forest canopies – the first height data from NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 are so clear that scientists can easily distinguish these and other features of Earth’s surface. At this press conference, scientists will present the first results and new data visualizations from ICESat-2, which launched Sept. 15. They’ll discuss how the airborne Operation IceBridge campaign led into ICESat-2 and how the satellite’s seasonal measurements of changing ice sheets and sea ice will lead to better understanding of sea level rise and global weather and climate patterns. Participants: Ron Kwok, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory/California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, U.S.A.; Joseph MacGregor, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, U.S.A.; Lori Magruder, University of Texas, Austin, Texas, U.S.A.; Tom Neumann, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, U.S.A.; Ben Smith, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

Counting the Cost - Big Oil and Climate Change | Counting the Cost (feature)
Though oil and gas companies have known about global climate change for decades, they’ve deferred reducing crude and gas production until the second half of this century. But with global climate accords like Paris global weather patterns in flux, activists have been demanding that energy companies set and commit to more rapid action on curbing oil and gas production. New calls for action come amidst forecasts by the International Energy Agency (IEA) that, by 2014, demand for oil and gas could fall by almost 50% - but only if carbon emissions reduction targets are met. With this threat to profits, many ask if big oil companies are serious about addressing global climate change Oil majors like Royal Dutch Shell has acknowledged that climate change will be a major challenge for years to come, but Total and others are still expecting strong demand for fossil fuels over the next few decades – and Exxon Mobil is under investigation over financial disclosures for climate change. Anthony Hobley, CEO for the financial think tank Carbon Tracker, told Counting the Cost that when it comes to profits and compliance with international carbon reduction agreements, big energy companies are sending mixed messages: “I think they’ve been a bit schizophrenic. They are looking at climate risk and we’re now being deluged with disclosure and scenario analysis from the companies that are effectively stress testing their business models against a Paris compliant two degrees pathway. But then when they talk to investors they’re still talking up demand.” The transition to a modified oil and gas market has begun, even as oil and gas companies continue to push production at current levels of demand: “What we’re seeing is a range of disclosure that tells us that every single oil and gas company is a winner,” Hobley told Counting the Cost’s Hazem Sika, “but that simply can’t be possible. Some of them may well do well in the transition, but not all of them - so there will be winners and losers. And at the moment it’s very difficult to discern who the winners will be and who the losers will be.” Calls to limit oil and natural gas emissions could force energy companies to keep oil, natural gas and coal reserves in the ground. International asset managers Sarasin & Partners have asked BP, Shell and Total to reveal the risk they face if they meet carbon emission targets. Shareholders are also increasingly concerned about the medium and long-term viability of their investments - especially with the emergence of competing energy sources like wind and solar. “Fossil fuels is no longer the only game in town, they’re now having to compete with new kids on the block, which is clean energy,” Anthony Hobley said. “And as clean energy goes up the learning curve, and is now essentially part of the ‘s’ curve, we’re seeing dramatic drops in price for solar, wind, batteries and electric vehicles, and that is eating into demand for the incumbent’s product – oil, gas and coal – combined also with dramatic steps forward in energy efficiency which while global energy demand is growing, is being offset dramatically by advances in energy efficiency.” More from Counting the Cost on: YouTube - http://aje.io/countingthecostYT Website - http://aljazeera.com/countingthecost/ - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

Geopolitics of the Arctic
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport Channel of Patrice: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO-NZoGEzCE5klWUCZVDuWQ BAKU - The Arctic covers roughly 14 million square kilometers of water and solid ice. It’s almost the size of Antarctica. For most of its part, the region is inhospitable. In the summer, the weather can rise above the melting point, yet, in the winter, it can plunge down to minus 45 degrees Celsius. This situation, however, is not to last. In the coming decades, climate change will make the Arctic passages and resources become more accessible. Given the abundance of resources and critical trade routes, it should come as no surprise that the Arctic will turn into a new geopolitical flashpoint.

CASPCOM agreement reached after 19 years
The Caspian Sea is the largest internal body of water on the planet. Its eco system is strongly influenced by climate change and meteorological conditions significantly affect human activities in the open sea and coastal areas. The earth’s largest in-land body of water is threatened by pollution and climate change. Each year some 1.5 billion barrels of oil is pumped from wells around the sea coast and in the area itself, are extracted, refined and transported. According to experts this has significantly contributed to its pollution.

Iran Today - Iran plans to avoid potential water crisis (28/8/2014)
As Iran experiences a steep decrease in precipitation and water supply, many experts and government officials think of ways to counter a potential water crisis. Describing the situation as a “water shortage of epic proportions,” experts are saying that this is the result of a decades-long trend for which little has been done to be reversed. Changes in the global climate have, of course, been contributing to the situation, but generally speaking, except for belts of high humidity along the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf, Iran has an arid to semiarid climate. This unbalanced distribution of precipitation required strict water management policies.

Blair comments on climate; Bush, Putin comments on missile shield
1. Wide of G8 conference venue 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tony Blair, British Prime Minister: ''The important thing is that we now have an agreement - one, that we need a new worldwide agreement on climate change, two that at the heart of that should be a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, three, in the process that will then work out what that cut in emissions should be. There will be serious considerations given specifically to the goal of halving of emissions by 2050.'' 3. Wide of G8 conference venue 4. SOUNDBITE: (English with Russian translation) George W. Bush, U.S. President: ''Vladimir and I just had a very constructive dialogue, particularly about missile defence. He expressed his concerns to me. He is concerned that the missile defence systems is not an act that a friend would do. He made some interesting suggestions. As a result of our discussions we both agreed to have a strategic dialogue, an opportunity to share ideas and concerns between out state department, defence department and military people.'' 5. Wide of US President George W.Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin 6. SOUNDBITE: (Russian with English translation) Vladimir Putin, Russian President: ''We have an understanding about common threats, but we have differences, differences in what ways and means we can use to overcome these threats. We carefully considered the U.S. proposal and we have ideas of our own. I have put forward these ideas in detail. The first plan is to use the radar station Gabala rented by us in Azerbaijan. Yesterday I had a conversation on this matter with the president of Azerbaijan. Our current agreement with Azerbaijan allows us to do this and the Azerbaijani president emphasised that he would be only too glad if his country could contribute to the cause of global security and stability.'' 7. Putin and Bush shake hands and leave STORYLINE: British prime minister Tony Blair on Thursday described the agreement reached by Group of Eight leaders on "obligatory reduction goals" to cut greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming, as ''important''. Their declaration calls for cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, a goal some leaders had feared she would not reach over persistent US opposition to any agreement with binding caps on reductions. Blair said that the agreement had three main tenets. ''One, that we need a new worldwide agreement on climate change, two that at the heart of that should be a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, three, in the process that will then work out what that cut in emissions should be.'' However, the language of the declaration falls short of an ironclad commitment. It says the world's biggest emitters of greenhouse gases should "seriously consider" following the EU, Canada and Japan in seeking to cut emissions in half by 2050. Merkel, who has made climate change the centrepiece of Germany's G-8 leadership, had steadily lobbied fellow leaders on climate change since they began arriving to this seaside resort for their annual summit. Details about the declaration were not immediately available, and it was unclear how much binding weight such a "political declaration" would carry. Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin, bitterly opposed to a U.S. missile shield in Europe, told U.S. President George W. Bush on Thursday that Moscow would drop its objections if the radar-based system were installed in Azerbaijan. Putin told Bush he would not seek to retarget Russian missiles on Europe if the United States agreed to put the system in the Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic on the Caspian Sea that borders Iran.
