I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

In 2010, Thailand dumped 27 army tanks, 273 old train carts, and 198 garbage trucks into the sea. Local fishermen petitioned the government to help with declining fish stocks, e.g., overfishing. In response, the government came up with the idea to dump the decommissioned vehicles into the shallows to create an artificial reef. The “reef,” in turn, would become a breeding ground for fish. This would help the fishermen increase their catch. 
It’s been two years and I’d like to see how the project has fared. Can anyone find a follow up to this story? Send me a link.
