The Dead Sea will probably become polluted just like other waters around the world because of human misuse. Stop polluting our air, water, and earth now. Never mind travel to Mars for now, just save Planet Earth before it's too late. Thank you, in advance.

Ezekiel 47:9-10 (9) And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for that shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh. (10) And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon if from En-gedi (west of the Dead Sea) even unto en-eglaim (a place by the Dead Sea): they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. The Dead Sea and the area around it is being healed just as God said!

Dead sea is the sea which has a lot of salt in it that's why no water animals are there in this sea and humans float on it and even can read newspaper by lying on water easily without sinking

Israel and Jordan should build a canal and aqueduct with many hydroelectric generators. Produce electricity, raise the lake's level ten or twenty meters, and make it sweet enough for ocean going fish. WHY NOT?

When Israelites crossed the mighty river Jordan prophet Moses times which was maybe ten times greater than today ,due to deforestation ,continued wars and local climate change that mighty river gradually reduced, 1) As result of agricultural efforts of Israelites last 70 years , tremendously changed the fate of river Jordan , other wise it is part of the desert , 2) God bless Israel forever
