Man-Made Enviromental Disasters
An interesting collection of man-made environmental disasters, courtesy of huffingtonpost.
The Door to Hell in Derweze, Turkmenistan is a classic example of a myopic solution. While it may have been better for the environment than just allowing the natural gas to leak, the Soviet scientists had no idea the fire would burn so long. It's been burning since 1971.
Let's hope we can find a better solution to the oil spill in the gulf.
