እርርይ በከንቱ!

ባለፈው ሣምንትከሶሪያ በኋላ | ሮማውያኑ ሉሲፈራውያን በኢትዮጵያ ላይ ከባድ ሴራ እየጠነሰሱ ነው” የሚለውን ጽሑፍ ሳቀርብ ምናልባት የሚከተለውን ዓይነት ፀረ–ኢትዮጵያ የግብጽ–ወዳጅ ፕሮፓጋንዳዎች እንደሚለቀቁ ታይቶኝ ይሆን? መፍትሄ ሊሆን ይችላል ብለው ባቀረቧቸው ነጥቦች ላይ፡ “ጦርነት” መጀመሪያ ላይ መቀመጡ ያለምክኒያት አይደለም። ለመሆኑ፡ ጳጳሱ አዘዋቸው / ከፍለዋቸው ይሆን?!

ከአራት ዓመት በፊት ይህች እንግሊዛዊት ዜና አቅራቢ “ታላቁ የኢትዮጵያ ህዳሴ ግድብ አይጠናቀቅም” ብላን ነበር፤

ድኻዋ ኢትዮጵያ ገንዘብ የላትም፡ እኛ ካልሰጠናት ግዱብን የመጨረስ አቅም የላትም….ቅብርጥሴአቀራረቧንና የድምጿን ጥላቻ የተሞላበት ቀለም መታዘብ ብቻ በቂ ነው።

2:44 ላይ፡ Once the dam is finished, IF IT’s FINISHED…!„ እረፍት የሌላቸው ግብዞች፣ ቅሌታሞች፣ አሰልቺዎችና አስቀያሚዎች ናቸው!

THE VANISHING NILE

ENVIRONMENT

The Nile river and its fertile delta were long the source of Egypt’s wealth and greatness. Today, they face relentless assault from both land and sea. (Yale Environment 360)

Teachers, scroll down for a quick list of key resources, including today’s MapMaker Interactive map.

According to the Yale article, the Nile faces “relentless assault from both land and sea.” First, land:

What Terrestrial Features Threaten The Nile?

What Features Threaten The Nile From The Sea?

  • sea level rise. The Mediterranean Sea may swallow as much as a third of the Nile delta. This would be catastrophic for Egypt’s population and economy.
    • The lowering of land elevation in the Nile delta can be attributed to two phenomena. The first is seismic activity—earthquakes and other interactions between the African, Arabian, and Eurasian tectonic plates. The second is a lack of nutrient-rich flood sediments from the river. (Dams such as the Aswan Dam prevent the Nile from predictably overflowing its banks and depositing silt on the delta.)
    • Saltwater from the Mediterranean may jeopardize a third of freshwater volume in the Nile delta.

How Might Egypt Mitigate Threats To The Nile?

    • war. Egyptian leaders have warned that “all options are open”, but despite this incendiary rhetoric, few critics think a violent conflict with Ethiopia is likely.
    • diplomacy. Some experts think Egypt may be able to negotiate with Ethiopia to lengthen the time to fill the GERD reservoir. While benefitting Egypt, this would mean Ethiopians would have to wait for benefits (water, electricity) of the dam.
    • desalination. Many experts are advising Egypt to imitate its neighbor, Saudi Arabia, and invest in costly desalination plants on its Mediterranean and Red Sea coasts.
    • drip irrigation. Egypt will almost certainly have to invest in drip irrigation methods for agriculture. Drip irrigation conserves water by reducing runoff and evaporation.
    • family planning. Egypt’s water crisis is exacerbated by its “contraception crisis,” in which family planning medications are increasingly unavailable. A smaller population would put less stress on the Nile.
