United Emirates Plan to Build First Zero Carbon City

"The United Arab Emirates, home for around 5 million people, wants to build the world's first zero-carbon city called Masdar City.

In Masdar City cars will be banned. A light rail system will serve the residents inside the city as well as taking them to nearby cities. Waste water will be reused, all garbage will be recycled and organic food will be locally grown."


Now go on, discuss!

I doubt it. I think in the end it would turn out to be a nightmare
Probably. That was quite the same thing I was thinking.
Arabs have too much money and no way to spend it. This would probably end up defeating it's purpose.

They sure do have the money to pull this off. It is just a matter of implementation and finding thousands of people who are willing to participate. I know if I had the chance to live there, I would be there in a heartbeat.

I bet they could pull it off, these are the freaking people who built huge man made islands!
Not happening... Well they could make an incredibly low carbon city...
