Yup , the Artificial Islands that were designed to look like a Palm tree is Sinking slowly back in to the water.
The islands were intended to be developed with tailor-made hotel complexes and luxury villas, and sold to millionaires. They are off the coast of Dubai and accessible by yacht or motor boat.
Now their sands are eroding and the navigational channels between them are silting up, the British lawyer for a company bringing a case against the state-run developer, Nakheel, has told judges.
“The islands are gradually falling back into the sea,” Richard Wilmot-Smith QC, for Penguin Marine, said. The evidence showed “erosion and deterioration of The World islands”
Apparently, buyers did not learn anything from their childhoods’days building sand castles by the beach.

Dude, correct your article, it’s the world islands, not the palm ones
Well, if it’s true what you say, I can say: The whole world is sinking!! Continents are surrounded by water from all side, thus, they are islands! 😛
