Environmentalists and activists have been raising alarms for years that the lake is threatened by drought and aggressive agriculture policies. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi, File)

    In this photo provided by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Tunisian fishermen come under attack from firehoses as they attempt to stop environmentalists inspecting their nets for tuna, in the Mediterranean on Saturday, June 11, 2011. Tuna fishermen confronted environmentalists on the Mediterranean early Saturday, as activists attempted to disrupt illegal tuna fishing under the no-fly zone north of Libya. The fishermen attacked the Steve Irwin, owned by the U.S.-based Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, by hurling heavy metal chain links aboard. They also attempted to lay a rope in front of the activists' boat, hoping to disable it. Those aboard the Sea Shepherd responded with water from fire hoses and stink bombs. Several hundred feet above the fray circled a French fighter jet, summoned by the fishermen, who claimed, falsely, that activist divers were trying to cut their net.

    Environmentalists light candles in front of the La Moneda Government Palace in a rally against a hydroelectric dam project which will be constructed in the Aysen region of Chilean Patagonia, in Santiago June 10, 2011. Chilean environmental regulators on May 9, 2011 gave the green light to the divisive $3.5 billion HidroAysen hydro-power dam project that promises to help ease energy squeezes, but opponents say it will ruin pristine Patagonian valleys.
