UAE’s carbon emissions under fire

Bright lights and desalination plants give Dubai a massive carbon footprint.

The United States is under a lot of pressure to lower its carbon emissions during the Copenhagen summit this week.

With little public transport, few recycling options, and almost all food and general goods flown into the region, the Gulf nation is under pressure to improve its environmental sustainability.
