UAE Wants to Build Its Own Mount Everest

Imagine this kind of sight coming from the United Arab Emirates


Okay, my headline was maybe  a little bit over-the-top but crazy as it seems, the United Arab Emirates is actually planning on building a mountain to help change its weather. As a Nigerian living in a country where we have not managed to get 10 hours of uninterrupted electricity for major cities in decades, you can understand my total dismay at the UAE's 'unbridled' ambition ... if you like call me bad belle.

Quite an idea though, I would be interested to know if this works out as planned for Emiratis. If you want to know some of the science behind this idea, read the Voice of America report.
