Green City

One thing I respect about the UAE is its commitment to the environment. This is pretty ambitious:
"To affirm its stand on the environment, the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, also known as Masdar, has invested $5 billion (Dh18.3 billion) to establish the world's first green city. The development, extending more than six square kilometres, is presented as the only city with zero carbon dioxide emissions.

"'Masdar is another major milestone for Abu Dhabi government with a key objective to position Abu Dhabi as a world-class research and development hub for new energy technologies, while ensuring that Abu Dhabi maintains a strong position in world energy markets,' Al Kindi said."
