I imagined what Dubai would look like if mankind would disappear and nature would take over, and if the UAE wasn't in de middle of the frickin' desert of course. (perhaps after a climate shift caused by global warming?)

Nope. Not Global Warming. Actually precession of the earth's axis.

I doubt Dubai would become andy more temperate because of global warming. Maybe another ice age.

Globel warming -> more water evaporates -> more and more intense rain on coasts -> Dubai is likely to become Tropical if it doesn't sink.

Global warming also is the reason why deserts spread

A rainforest Dubai is a hell of a shift. Makes me wonder what the rest of the planet would look like if you terraformed the UAE.

В целом, неплохо. Но всё портит именно климат пустыни. Скорее я ожидал увидеть разрушенные песками и ветрами здания, чем зелень.

Very interesting work, I wonder how long would last the Burj Khalifa in these conditions.

This look fantastic, although it's Dubai, desert. But, still it is awesome work. You should the rest of the Megacities, like Mumbai, CD de MX, and LA.
