What does the throbbing brain think? Which of these , if any, might see daylight in the future (other then the Islands, which is in the construction phase)?

I think that Yucca Mountain will happen.

That island thing was nuts. How about that guy at the end:
In Europe or America it would take 10 years of planning and studies to do something like this. But in Dubai it's the other way around. We just do it as we go."

Uh that might be because you are impacting the ocean floor, tides, coastal sea life, etc.
