$1.5 Billion Plan Might Revive Dying Dead Sea

Diana Chandler • Baptist Press – The Dead Sea has been receding for decades, with some experts predicting its total demise by 2050. But a $1.5 billion plan to resurrect the biblically prominent sea is nearing fruition, NBC News reported Nov. 29. Meetings are expected within weeks to finalize the plan considered for two decades, NBC reported, to build a desalination facility in Jordan to essentially remove salty brine from the Red Sea and pump it into the Dead Sea. The desalinated water remaining in the Red Sea would be suitable for drinking, meeting water demands amid rainfall that continues to decrease.
