Global warming threatens Nile Delta – August 24, 2007

The Nile River has had a long history of nourishing the people of Egypt. Many of us know stories of the Nile that date back to the building of the pyramids that also include how the Nile fed and nourished the people that lived on its banks.

In more recent times, man has tried to contain the Nile and caused it to serve our purposes. The building of the Aswan Dam gave many people knew found luxury but also caused the Nile to work differently than it had in any time in history.
