A Green City in the Desert

January 23, 2008

Check out this article in Britain’s Telegraph. The architect Lord Norman Foster has created a green city in the United Arab Emirates, on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. After reading this I had three thoughts: 1) I want to live there! 2) Where can I find out more? 3) If they can do this in a desert nation that primarily produces oil, why can’t we do it in Washington DC? Or New York? Or LA? Turn Jersey City into a green town.
