• The Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world, guilty of polluting the environment

    Dubai is currently basking in the glory of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. Standing a hundred and sixty stories above ground, and probably more, this huge mammoth structure looks over the United Arab Emirates with pride. All said and done, Dubai has forgotten the fight for the environment. This building has helped increase Dubai’s honor along with its carbon footprint. The building plays host to a thousand condos, an Armani hotel, around 57 elevators and a whole load of other luxurious services. No doubt Dubai should have taken the environment in consideration while designing the tallest tower. However we cannot miss out the two green features of this building.

    An eleven hectare oasis is situated at the foot of the building and it boasts of a system that helps collect water from condensation that will provide 15 million gallons of water a year. This building is a matter of pride for the Arab world; however a few snips of a scissor would help make the building a cleaner and greener one.
