China Tries to Make Artificial Lake, Fails and Creates Desert Instead

By Omar Kardoudi on at

Officials in Zhengzhou, China, wanted to build an artificial lake on the outskirts of the city but everything went wrong. The source of water they intended to use dried up and the hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sand destined for the artificial beach began to spread, covering an area the size of four football pitches.

Well done, China. Well done.
