Human beings' love for gadgets has resulted in a 5.5 miles toxic lake in Inner Mongolia, China.
The black sludge and dangerous chemicals, which are the byproducts of rare earth mining, found in the lake have become a threat to mother Earth.
Freelance journalist Tim Maughan's BBC report brought the matter to light, in which he has called the lake a "Hell on Earth".
"The smell of sulphur and the roar of the pipes invades my senses. It feels like hell on Earth," says Maughan.
Maughan visited Baotou, world's biggest suppliers of rare earth minerals, along with group of architects and designers called the Unknown Fields Division.
Shockingly, the so called "rare earth mineral" are found in magnets in wind turbines, electric car motors, smart phones, and even flat screen TVs and MP3 players, which we use in our day to day lives.
