Removal of fresh riverwater combined with increasing sea level as predicted by climate change spells doom for the delta.
Current Climate Lectures of Latest Research, Free Online (tags)
Here are two lectures given at the Univ. of Washington about the current state of the climate by two researchers who have been gathering data for decades. I highly recommend these to everyone. They were both aired on DishNetwork Channel 9404 in the past week.

A leading Australian marine scientist John Church in an interview by Michael Byrnes of Rueters told of his research revealing that "Observations are in the very upper edge of the projections,"(1) "I feel that we're getting uncomfortably close to threshold," said Church. "....the Antarctic Peninsula is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth, and glaciers are in massive retreat." A United Nations report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in February projected sea level gains of 18-59 centimeters (7-23 inches) this century from temperature rises
