"Help us to find a solution for the Aral Sea problem."
"I'm from Uzbekistan. One of the ecological disasters of the 20th century was the drying of the Aral Sea. In the first half of the 20th century it was the fourth largest sea in the world. Now it has lost almost two-thirds of its water and is still continuing to dry. I would ask world leaders to send more scientists here to help us to find a solution for the Aral Sea problem."
