💬 Comments on the video

Its ironic how the eco friendly city of Masdar in UAE is probably funded all by oil money.

Getting to airport fast is amazing, I was in Miami and live in NYC and you can get to the airport in 10 minutes in Miami while it is absolute hell getting there in NYC.

HOWEVER, i think the future is for airports to be away from the cities because it will be possible to build a very fast train from airport to the center of the city. Not now but say 30-40 years from now it will probably be possible to get from JFK to Mid town on a train that runs pretty fast (you can not do it now, you can get there on a train that is slow and runs thru an area where you can get stabbed or mugged).

The middle east is kinda weird. It's either like Iraq or Syria, a war-torn third world country, or it's like the UAE or Dubai, a petrolocratic billionaire city donaldtrumpopolis.
