Just realised I haven’t re-instated the RSS feeds for the home page and each category, apologies. In the mean time, I caught the following news item on the BBC World channel, and thought it might be of interest…
BBC NEWS – The Kazakhstan government has secured a multi-million dollar loan from the World Bank to help save the Aral Sea.
The money will be used to implement the second stage of a project aimed at saving the northern part of the sea.

This is all taking place a long way from where I live (Astana), but it good to see the environment is being considered.
