It's written without a hint of irony but cannot possibly be serious.

UAE to build artificial mountain to improve rainfall
It is all over the news! But I doubt the mountain will be a megatall if ever built

It was also proposed for The Netherlands. Seems like the creator of this plan is trying a new location every year. It's funny how the weather change was actually a down side in the plan for the Netherlands, but a selling point for the same plan in the UAE.

Funny how the Burj actually looks like one of these future vision towers of 2080, even though it's already completed
My god, when I see all these future skylines, I wish I'd be immortal to experience them myself

Oh yeah me too
But i have the strong feeling that no one of us will live forever...
So the solution is: enyoing the present. I'm 34 and it makes me happy to see all the supertalls and megatalls rising. I can remember the time as Willis Tower was the highest skyscraper. In those "ancient" times a 600m+ building was nothing more than a vision. And a 300m+ new supertall was an extraordinary event. Nowadays we're talking about 1000m+
And 300m are nothing special anymore in terms of the hight...

Great visual, I even see a tiny CN Tower (totally unnecessary)
But it would be nice if these megatalls would have more diverse cladding instead of glass only.

Same here I don't know the tower to the right too though... I'd guess it's located in an american city, about as big as Dallas..

I just noticed there is 2 Address hotels in that pic...

Also, think of the amount of effort went into that to make such a beautiful picture...
