Dune de Pyla A new Sahara desert being born in France as presented by: Trigger Pit

I never knew about this, but to me it looks like Europe has started turning into a new sahara desert. The Great Dune of Pyla is the tallest sand dune in Europe. It is located in the Arcachon Bay area, France, 37 miles (60 km) from Bordeaux. The dune has a volume of about 60,000,000 m, measuring around 1,640 ft (500 m) wide from east to west and 1,9 miles (3 km) in length from north to south. Its height is 350 feet (107 metres) above sea level. The dune moves relentlessly towards the interior of the country and gradually covers buildings and roads.
