One of the provocative reports by Linda Howe on this week’s Dreamland is about an entire lake that has suddenly disappeared.

BBC News reports that a 5 acre glacial lake in Chile has vanished completely over the past 3 weeks. Park rangers say the lake was normal size in March, but this month they found only a dry crater where the lake used to be. Could it be evaporation due to global warming? Some researchers think that an earthquake may have opened a crack in the ground that drained out all the water.
