July 6, 2009

The Sahara is becoming closer to Europe. The desert is now cross the Mediterranean Sea, and threatens some 6.5 million people on the coast. This is evident from an analysis of the Italian environmental group Legambiente.

"If we do not take environmental measures will not stop this process are," says a spokesman. Especially Sicily and Sardinia are at high risk according to the group, because the farmers depend on groundwater. Spain and France are in danger, and North Africa, where the daily volume of fertile soil every day about a thousand square meter decreases, log Legambiente.
