Follow the top 10 Middle East environment news stories of 2010.
With 2011 a few days away, we wanted to reflect on the stories that shaped the Middle East in 2010. As global warming transforms our climate and we scramble to catch up, we have found our region to be split in two camps: the people who get it, and the people who don’t.
Our stories reflect as much. The year started with the inauguration of the world’s tallest and most irresponsible building, rose to happy heights with David de Rothschild’s 8,000 mile journey on a plastic catamaran, but sadly ends with one of the worst fires in Israel’s history. Happy Holidays to our readers, and Happy New Year!
