Dramatic climate changes have brought to the surface the darkest secrets of this body of water.

For decades, scientists have been saying that we should be wary of global warming and the dramatic climate change that will follow. Already today we can observe how the climate is changing – large-scale forest fires destroy giant green areas, sweeping away all life in their path, a landslide in Alaska risks turning into one of the largest tsunamis in human history and a drought that now and then reveals the secrets hidden under water column, writes CNN.

Recent years have been too dry – a multi-year drought has stripped the colors of the leaves of trees in the UK, and in the USA the water supply of Lake Mead has suffered. As a result, the remains, hidden under the water column for so long, ended up on the surface due to the retreat of the coastline of the artificial reservoir.

The first terrible discovery was discovered here in May. Then the drought exposed a rusted tin barrel with traces of bullets, and later the body of a man was found in the barrel. According to Clark County Coroner Melanie Rose, they were able to determine that the man died in the 70s and 80s, it is still difficult to identify him alone by DNA analysis.

Over the next week, the remains of another were found in the lake men, medical examiners identified him as a 42-year-old man, apparently drowned. Body fragments were found here and later, the last machines were found on Lake Mead in October, in total, coroners confirmed that the bones belong to six different people.

Note that it is still unclear how many more remains can be stored at the bottom of the lake Mead and what other unpleasant “surprises” the drought will expose. The scientists note that the drop in water levels due to drought has also led to the discovery of relics, a sunken boat, a World War II landing craft, and ancient volcanic rock. Scientists discover similar finds in different parts of the world.
