Dead Sea, River Jordan where Jesus was baptized, shrinking fast in ‘disaster,’ experts say

Bodies of water mentioned in the Bible, including the Dead Sea, the Sea of Galilee, and the River Jordan, where Jesus Christ was baptized, are shrinking fast in a looming “disaster,” experts say.Sky News reported that the Dead Sea in particular is seeing its water levels decline faster than ever before, losing as much as five feet each year. Scientists are fearing that it may only be reduced to a “tiny pool” by the middle of the century.”Its a lesson to everyone: don’t mess with nature because nature will always win and we will always lose,” said Ofir Katz, an ecologist at the Dead Sea and Arava Science Center.
