"Qatar's Plan to Turn the Desert Green": looks like a vision of Arthur C. Clarke
Jonathan E. Smith, an engineer, reports on “Qatar’s Plan to Turn the Desert Green” ( 9 min), from Journeyman Pictures.
The film shows greenhouse technology gradually expanding into the desert, creating a “Rama” look, as in Arthur C. Clarke.
But I wondered if greening the desert could set up an area where Syrian refugees could be resettled, in another Muslim country.
The film does show some of the opulence of Doha.
