Photos: The Salton Sea Dies

The Salton Sea, California’s largest lake, is drying up. As it does, desert winds sweep toxic chemicals from the sea’s exposed lakebed into the ecosystem. This has resulted in poor health conditions like elevated asthma and COVID-19 mortality rates for Imperial County residents. Government failure to adequately respond to the environmental crisis has allowed the problem to continue for decades.
