Dubai is a carbon fools paradise who's excesses and phenomenal growth have exacted a heavy price on the planet. Currently 25% of the worlds cranes are working on massive construction projects in Dubai. Steel and cement are both extremely carbon hungry in their manufacture. The city of Dubai has used more of these materials in recent years than many countries. Among the attractions are the worlds tallest building and a luxury hotel that is having a cooling system fitted under its private beach. Most of this excess could be powered by the abundant solar energy, but instead has been fueled by exploiting its rich oil wealth. Dubai is creating many new islands from the sea to build endless luxury hotels and apartments at a time when other island nations around the world are being threatened by global warming induced sea level rise.
