Cause and Effect
'Cause and Effect' refers to the forty year climate lag, the time difference between increased greenhouse gas emissions and increased temperatures. With four decades between cause and effect, its means that average temperatures of the last decade are a result of what was put into the atmosphere in the nineteen seventies Within the forty year parameter the population of Dubai has risen from one hundred thousand in nineteen seventy to two and a half million today. The true impact of this expansion, as it is today, and the resulting emissions released into the atmosphere will not be felt until the 2050's. Global warming presents the largest threat to our own existence, the rapid construction of the desert city has seen its carbon footprint rise 63% from the year 2000. Expansion is a constant as the desire to build a 'Utopia' in a world under threat from climate change continues.
