Recent increases in the flows of Siberia's rivers, probably due to global warming, have raised fears that a less salty Arctic Ocean could shut down the Gulf Stream and trigger icy winters across Europe.
The Ob and nearby rivers pour seven per cent more fresh water into the Arctic Ocean than 70 years ago, and climate models indicate that flows could rise by up to 80 per cent by the end of the century.
China's south-north project to take water from the Yangtze river to the parched Yellow river is as large and expensive, and is under way.
