Uzbekistan Losing Farmland to Salt

From New York Times, Uzbekistan is suffering from over-irrigation. It is sad that Uzbekistan is dealing with the same issue that America dealt with 70 years ago and for the past 20 years. As we face the current high food prices, we need to pay attention to the lessons of the Dust Bowl so we don't do it again.

This is another reminder, as well, in the coming resource struggle.
