Image via Bored Panda We love seeing natural architecture here at Inhabitat, and the leafy green Kleven train tunnel is a beautiful example of what happens when nature is allowed to grow freely around manmade infrastructure. Image via YouTube The tunnel was made over many years as the passing train molded the trees’ lines. The train turned a luscious piece of woodland into a unique passageway as it traveled back and forth 3 times a day over several years.

If you are out and about Ukraine , don’t miss this fantastic green passageway – whether you are with a loved one, or on your own.

Comments Off on Oil Company Announces that Oil Spills are Really Good for the Economy

When Kinder Morgan decided that it wanted to expand its pipeline capacity from Alberta to Vancouver, it had to get approval from the National Energy Board in Canada. So the company did what any self-respecting oil corporation would do when faced with unwelcome regulation: say something so audacious that no one could possibly find fault with your argument. And so, in a statement to the board, Kinder Morgan argued that oil spills actually have a positive effect on the areas that they impact.
