what will that do to the local eco system of the desert though and the movement of animals and humans across that space?

 

Since when do the Saudis care about minutiae like wildlife and the environment?

 

They don't even care about their own citizens' wellfare.

Seems like an open prison. 

 

Manu expats who have worked in Saudi Arabia describe the entire country as an "open air prison".

 

Everything conceivable "forbidden" under Shariah law.

A couple of quotes I found about this project: 

 

 "Although marketing images make Neom look like an empty desert, it is in fact home to local tribes who have been forcibly relocated for the project, according to the Wall Street Journal."

"According to the Saudis, artificial intelligence will be central to how people live in the 500-metre-high, 200-metre-wide structure, a car-free, carbon neutral bubble"

Maybe this isn't so far from what is planned for us all. Replacement of traditional cultures in harmony with nature by the technocratic Brave New World.

I wonder if it will have its own police force? This reminds me of the 2000 AD comics I used to read. 😃 

 

mega-city one didn't look that inviting, this has the same vibe.

Why bother. It's not exactly like Blackpool for tourists is it? They can relish in their own wondrous shit. Basically he just wants to build something big like all facist dictator states.

You know, a mirror in a hot climate doesn't go together. Imagine starting a wildfire? 😆

A mirror that big might torch the moon. Imagine a planeload of pilgrims bound for Mecca suddenly getting incinerated as they fly over it.
