ABU DHABI FUTURE ENERGY COMPANY ZERO-CARBON, ZERO-WASTE, FULLY SUSTAINABLE CITY PLANS TO BE READY NEXT YEAR

This is a wise conversion of oil money. Will the Empire destroy it?

Masdar Project Investing $2B In Thin-Film

If there wasn't enough cool stuff about the Masdar Initiative (concept pictured above from aerial perspective), theres more. For those of you who haven't heard, the project is headed by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, and is a plan to build an entire city costing $22B and housing over 50,000 people and 1,500 businesses, and it would be zero-carbon, zero-waste, and fully sustainable. That's a heck of a claim for such an arid area, but a world first and a herald for environmental responsibility in its oil-rich surroundings. Cars will be banned from the city, and all travel will be by mass transit and personal rapid transit. Amazingly, the city is set to be habitable by 2009.
