It's interesting that the country that depends the most on petrodollars is the country that is building one of the first energy sustainable cities.

Sustainable Growth at Masdar City, abu dhabi

Masdar City is a project in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. Its core is a planned city, which will rely entirely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources, with a sustainable, zero-carbon, zero-waste ecology. The city is being constructed 17 kilometres east-south-east of the city of Abu Dhabi, beside Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The above city might be sustainable, but I'm not sure the city of Dubai is... pretty wild stuff.

I'm looking for sponsors to financially help with this site.  If you might be interested please send me a message using the Contact form.


I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
