But who wants to live here in 2030? Climate is changing.... be realistic, this is all a big show-off instead of an investment for the future for this area.

Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert and Kingdom tower is not.

And two other videos concerning the tower's future lighting...
(I have doubts, but, I think the second video has already been posted)

Maybe some people just get a kick out of displaying their ignorance publicly..

Uhm technically there's zero infrastructure around the tower, so it is indeed pretty remote. Maybe not in the middle of nowhere since Jeddah is nearby, but right around the tower there's nothing.

I hope this is a joke? Strictly as a resident of Paris (no, I'm not French...) I'd say that public transport is a deal-breaker for large urban construction projects. Even the Saudis could not have been fools enough (???) to plan such a building before first ensuring nearby metro and crossrail stations.
