15 horrible facts Dubai does not want the world to know about – This will leave you in utter shock (With Pics)
12. Wasting Enormous Amounts Of Drinking Water
Dubai is located in a desert, and it means that people have to import water from elsewhere. Of course, as long as money is growing on the trees in Dubai, drinking water doesn’t seem to bother anyone. In contrary, Dubai manages to be on top when it comes to wasting the water.
For example, there are plenty of golf courts in Dubai, which need close to 4,000,000 gallons of water per day just to keep the grass green. Yeah, the rest of the world is facing a massive shortage of drinking water, and people have to die of thirst, but who cares as long as there is a functioning golf court in Dubai? And this vanity and ignorance reflect off everything in Dubai. The government doesn’t give a crap about others as long as they are getting their money, and people are blinded by all the luxurious golf courts in the middle of the desert. However, every mirage, even such a beautiful one as Dubai’s, has to end sometime.
