The Environment Ministry is proving once again to be a complete waste of money. Minister Mohammad Machnouk is currently visiting Washington to take part in the “Our Ocean Conference” and was bragging yesterday on how he transformed a garbage mountain to a green area. He was referring to the Saida dumpster but chose willingly to ignore other garbage mountains he helped directly or indirectly create, like the Costa Brava, Neemeh, Burj Hammoud and others. Funnily enough, his previous tweet was a retweet of an article by The Economist on “The Art of the lie” and whether it matters if politicians leave the truth behind entirely

On another note, he’s blaming the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities for the garbage crisis, which is not necessarily wrong, but his duty was to limit the environmental impact and help manage the crisis which he didn’t.
