Article Response: Iran's largest lake turning to salt

Response Many of these types of salt lakes are common in the middle east. The Oroumieh Lake is a part of Lake Urmia in Iran. It is so crazy how a lake can disappear and turn into salt. I feel this is all due to global warming. Global temperatures are rising and causing the waters to boil and evaporate. Things like this make me know for sure that global warming is real. It is amazing how it happening causing boats to get stuck and having risks of salt tsunamis which can be very dangerous. Yet they say in the article that consumption is the cause for the issue as well. I can see that being an issue because water is still a precious resource no matter how much you may see around you. Especially if the area is prone to droughts due to extreme heat with lack of rain. Just to know that a large lake can become nothing but salt in the near future is very devastating and it lets us know it can happen anywhere.
