Construction will soon start for Abu Dhabi's $15bn green city of the future.
The Masdar city is planned to be the world's first zero-carbon, zero waste, car-free community of 50,000 people, mostly with scientific pedigrees.
Abu Dhabi is asking its oil customers to keep the investment money flowing. At least some of them are being put to good use. Hopefully the rest of the world will benefit from this project.
