A picture and a video are being circulated today showing the Burj Hammoud landfill being swamped by rising waters.

The authorities have been dumping the whole garbage mountain into the sea for months now and it looks like the latest storm made their job even easier. I guess now is the perfect opportunity for our Environment Minister to blame Mother Nature for the ongoing garbage crisis!

Speaking of which, Human Rights Watch is asking everyone to sign a petition to stop burning garbage in Lebanon.
