    Video description:
    In 2003, the construction of the multi-billion dollar investment project “The World” was announced. The man-made archipelago shaped like a map of the earth was planned to feature luxurious houses and tourist-resorts located all within just a short boat ride from Dubai. But today, more than 10 years after the completion of these islands, there is hardly anything built on them. What happened here?

Sea levels aren't rising, but I'd still think that the islands would erode quickly.

I wonder why it never crossed my mind until now, but the country contributing to climate change the most is building artificial islands that will be reclaimed by the sea soon due to climate change. That's what I call cutting off the branch you are sitting on :D

I lived in Dubai until March 2020, and looked at renting an apartment on the palm. The water STUNK as it was stagnant due to their not being a normal sea flow because if the crescent. On a general note, YES there is lots of money in Dubai and I managed to clear my mortgage back home in under 2 years, but even the incredible money wasn’t enough to tempt me to stay around a bunch of deluded idiots, so I went back home to Germany.

They really couldn't foresee that blocking the fronds from the Gulf water would inhibit the natural flow and cause the local water to become stagnant?

Maybe the onerous task of getting too and from the island just to get a snickers from the gas station is the deal-breaker.

No doubts that what has been going on in Dubai for the last 20 years is very inspiring and a man made Mega projects had been achieved , mistakes happened , it success are much more and by living here for the last 25 years you could realize that the spent time and money does worth it, Dubai is an example to follow and I e if the safest and secure places in the world 💐

I've been to Dubai and visited the Palm Jumeira. I did not like Dubai as a city, everything was so fake and superficial. They just had to have the first and the biggest of everything. I visited Abu Dhabi and I enjoyed that city much much more. Abu Dhabi had more culture and history to share.
