First Dubai, Then the World

23 02 2010

Today’s required reading comes in the form of an article titled Dubai: The Nemesis of Sustainability. Sample quote:

But we can travel up 160 floors on elevators going 25mph to look out over a series of islands completely fabricated by humans! Aren’t you impressed? Quite simply, no. I already have the utmost of confidence in humanity’s abilities in science and technology without wasting $4 billion to make a giant spire in the desert.

I will have much, much more to say about this but for now I wanted to get this placeholder set and seed planted. Please take the time to read the linked article.
