Dubai Palm Islands Aerial - Google Earth

Those are the amazing Dubai artificial "Palm Islands".­ Not sure it's good use of the earth resources needed to build them, but it looks cool.­

The investment company that owns those has been in the news recently, because they are basically going bankrupt before completion of the project, causing turmoil in the financial world.­

And also they are a little bit worried that it will be under water soon with Global Warming.­
