Why Erdogan insists on the kanal Istanbul.
It's madness all for one man's desperate need to be remembered in History , another legacy project that could spell disaster to the environment and more ......as Abi said'

By cutting through from the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea, it will also enroute cut through the fresh water lake of Lerkos and the Sazlıdere reservoir, both used as the main suppliers of Istanbul's drinking water. A city already wracked and in dire need of fresh water, after previous other sources were destroyed due to developments , when the new Istanbul Airport was built .... Istanbul city dwellers already having to put up with regular cuts to their water system. This Lake and reservoir will now be added to the previous loss of fresh water and will be rendered useless, with the saltwater fresh water mix ,not forgetting the destruction to the lakes ecology in the process .

To add to this disastrous choice joining the two sea's, which have different levels of salinity and oxygen, it will change the levels and in doing so the ecology of one, most likely the Black Sea with the natural sea life that survives in less salt ....

The canal would also destroy Küçükçekmece lagoon, the habitat of the flamingo's and many other migratory birds etc etc

An Ego legacy project, given to enrich further his developer followers. Another White Elephant project but on a grander scale to the New Istanbul " Airport which itself caused irreparable destruction to wildlife and the farming environment of the area, with land pre -bought cheap from locals and farmers , the base for the project laid with sand claimed from local beaches destroying them in the process, only to be concreted over to build runways , Malls, housing projects and Hotels all of which is under used ....

A Project rife with Nepotism.... the route for this Kanal was released first to friends,family, overseas donors and Allies like Qatar ,Kuwait to allow them to buy up the route cheap from locals to concrete over and develop.

Why Erdogan insists on the kanal Istanbul.

This was brought about because a newspaper caught an "admiral praying at religious order ". Which is normally classed as 'reactionary activity' due to it influence over members, which by law is normally a barrier to entry to any Military Schools. So it seems this Government is waiving the rule or turning a blind eye due to the ruling Parties ideology .
