Olu Deniz is Doomed!
« on: July 23, 2011, 14:52:07 PM »
With its crescent of white sand framing a blue lagoon, the Mediterranean town of Ölüdeniz has long been considered one of the most paradisiacal spots on Turkey's increasingly built-up coastline. But growing concerns about pollution in the area have come to a head recently, leading the Ministry of Environment and Urban Development to launch an investigation. Boat owners blamed for the problem have, however, pointed the finger at swimmers' sunscreens.

Yüksel Karakaya, the head of the Belcekiz Motorboats Cooperative says "The sunscreen creams used by thousands of people on the [area's] beaches ... are another factor".

There's nothing like passing the blame onto your main source of income to get some sympathy, is there?
