The climate hoax: An artificially dried lake was made to illustrate the “extreme” threat

Published 25 May 2023 at 10.18

In an interview on the topic of “lake water loss” on the Tagesschau website, scientists were said to be warning of “extreme consequences” for biodiversity due to global warming.

The article was illustrated with a picture of a dried up German water reservoir, Ellertschäuser See in Bavaria.

“Even in Germany, many lakes suffer from drought and climate change,” reads the caption.

The only problem is that the condition in which this artificial lake is in the picture has nothing to do with drought, writes young freedom.

Instead, the image shows the lake when it has been artificially drained to clean up pipes at the bottom. In addition, the lake has already filled with water again due to abundant rain.

The hoax was noticed by many users on social media, but despite this, the “Tagesschau” left the picture up for three days. In the end, however, the leftist news program crept to the cross and chose to replace the image with a photo of a dried up puddle in Belgium.
