Waters in Lam Takong Dam in Korat, Nakhon Ratchasima province of Thailand have dried up due to prolonged drought, allowing villagers to camp inside the dam to catch the remaining fish. Greenpeace linked rising global temperatures and climate change to the onset of one of the worst droughts to have struck Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia in recent memory. Severe water shortage and damage to agriculture brought about by the severe drought has affected millions. Scientists from NASA recently warned that a weak El Nino combined with the impact of increasing greenhouse gas emissions from the use of fossil fuels such coal could make 2005 the hottest year since global temperature was recorded in the 1800s.
