Dubai wants to build a Carbon Neutral Pyramid that can House 1 Million people

Every time I hear Obama (or any other American President) talk about how American innovation is the best in the world, how America is the greatest country on the face of the planet, the most free, the most technologically advanced, the most democratic, the most ingenious; I seriously start laughing because those lines would only work on Americans who've never travelled much. Or as George Carlin (R.I.P) said it, it's only called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Countries like Dubai (with there Petro dollars ironically) want to build what only the Mayans and Egyptians constructed; incredible feats of architecture able to weather the test of time. A pyramid built to be a city, a metropolis with a carbon-neutral super-structure interlaced with a transportation system that would run vertically and horizontally alleviating any need for cars. They also claim that it will be capable of running completely off the grid by utilizing steam, wind, and other natural resources.

Back in 2008 Dubai-based environmental design firm Timelinks released these eye-catching renderings of the gigantic eco pyramid - aptly named Ziggurat. The ginormous pyramid is expected to cover 2.3 square kilometers and will be able to sustain a “community” of up to 1 million people. Now that's what you call forward thinking, innovation and an advancement in architecture. I can't even imagine the air transfer mechanicals involved with one million in one monolithic building. Let alone the other mechanical systems, sewage etc. with Dubai's weather, in that heat it would take a nuclear powered air conditioner to keep such an installation cool. Where there's money, there's a way!!!
