Under the broader scope of: Oil Money
[in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE and Gulf States]
I'd like to present whats known as the Masdar Initiative
the site has a short 4 minute B&W video, presents a new & futuristic
city being planned from the ground up.
the almost obscene oil profits in the middle east gulf states is not being
going to sit idle and collect interest... the forward thinking Arabs
envision many small cities of 50,000 people, which use renewable energy technology.... are self-sustaining....
produce Zero carbon pollution,
produce Zero waste, as everything is recycled,
have Zero auto emmissions, as well connected mass transport is the norm
the city is designed so that any service needed in daily living is no more than 200 meters distant, the thin film photo-voltaic canopy over portions
of the city area provides both protection and energy for the transit system
which networks with the other city quadrants.
roof top P-V panels provide home & office energy needs,
a P-V energy farm & windmills would be the fist thing put in place to start this model city of Mandar. (Oops, thats Masdar)
thanks for listening,
~ there are still some Good things breaking out of the oil profits world,
but it seems its all coming from those Muslims in the middle east,
while the American innovation model seems to have broken down with the weight of all those excessive profits the mega-giant oil corps are hoarding for
their elite executives and their NGO duties as fascist resource plunderers evolves.
