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.
