Spotted this on Epetome’s facebook page today. The picture National Geographic used is taken from the fire that erupted at the car tires graveyard last month. Kuwait ranked #2 after Qatar.
Quoted from National Geographic‘s website:
As in nearby Qatar, gas prices in Kuwait are among the lowest in the world, while GDP is among the highest. This, coupled with a lack of public transit infrastructure, makes road travel the sole means of mobility for both citizens and businesses moving goods. According to the Global Footprint Network, the average Kuwaiti uses 22 times more resources than the country provides per person.
