"Hour Sixteen Of Climate Reality: Dubai"
The Climate Reality Project’s 24 Hours of Reality continues in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The desert city is rife with contradiction — an intense experiment in consumption and construction in one of the most inhospitable climates on Earth, one growing ever hotter because of global warming. There are efforts to create a low-carbon city of the future in the Arab desert here, but it is also home to extravagances as refrigerated beaches. Presented by Ibrahim Al-Zu’bi, a civil engineer and environmental adviser to the Dubai government.
