I'll have to find a link or picture somewhere, but I love the stories from Dubai about the people who have entire leaves/fronds of the "Palm" islands all to themselves.

The article mentions that a rise in sea level (due to global warming) would wipe those out. Not sure who would want one of those islands - they are pretty low-lying. I wonder if the sewage mentioned impacts them too.

Place your bets.
