Is the Dead Sea really dead?

5472 ratings | 2061463 views
Because of its extremely high salt content, no animal or plant life can survive in the Dead Sea. So why do tourists from around the world flock to bathe in its deep blue waters? Clarissa Ward takes us on a trip to this exotic and unique destination.

There may be hope, fresh water springs are now flowing into the Dead Sea. Floating won't be as easy as the spring water dilutes the salt water but that will probably take years and years. https://youtu.be/XzXw3fGP2Tw

Save dead sea guys,, It's the responsibility of the country to save it's natural resources.. We have similar problem with Taj Mahal in India, as it becomes more & more polluted every years, the colour of the Pure White Marble of Taj Mahal Monument also become more & more faded in years ... Mainly because of industrial air pollution..

My mom says it's called the dead sea because if you accidentally swallow some of the water you could die because of the high level of salt in it...

It's where God destroyed the city of evil doers i.e the nation of gays those used to live in that area thousands of years ago.

It's a place where punishment was meted out by God to sinners and Christians and Jews bathe in it in skimpy clothes instead of staying away. You'd think they'd avoid it. Don't understand these people at all.

it shouldn't be too hard to build a pipeline from mediterranean sea to the dead sea. it would not require pumping since the dead sea is lower. so the pipe can climb to the hilltops if the mouth only is lower. it would not make dead sea sweet but dilute it so that it could provide life.

The reason why the salt "diamonds" form is because the sodium chloride chemically breaks at right angles, so the most common shapes of molecules that break at right angles are three dimensional cubes or rectangles.

Forgot to mention more than 8 million gallons of raw sewage from East Jerusalem is pumped downhill to the Dead Sea, raw and untreated, every day.
Can you please send me a link to that information ?

If it's so far under sea level just build a canal from the sea to fill it back up? 🤔
