Case in oint is a Tire-reef which was 'planned' near an American beach, and which now is turning out to be an environmental disaster. None of intended benefits accrued & a lot of unintended, unanticipated damages are piling up.
Read this story in USA Today.
"A mile offshore from this city's high-rise condos and spring-break bars lie as many as 2 million old tires, strewn across the ocean floor — a white-walled, steel-belted monument to good intentions gone awry.
The tires were unloaded there in 1972 to create an artificial reef that could attract a rich variety of marine life, and to free up space in clogged landfills. But decades later, the idea has proved a huge ecological blunder."
The lesson for all decision makers, from this blunder, is - If you have found a right solution, still strive for one more, and one more. Now chose the best. (For, life is too complex to anticipate everything.)
