The video features five megaprojects that have all faced difficulties, including the Forest City project in Malaysia and the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository in the United States. All of these projects have been met with strong opposition and have failed to live up to their initial promises.

  • 00:00:00 The 5 megaprojects featured in this video are Interstate H-3, Ciudad Real Central Airport, the U.S. Military Base in Puerto Rico, the Kuala Lumpur Metro project in Malaysia, and the Beijing Airport Express. All of these projects have faced various difficulties, including the inability to attract airlines to operate out of the projects and the high costs of construction.
  • 00:05:00 The Forest City project is a $10 billion, green futuristic smart city planned to be built on reclaimed land in Malaysia. The city is linked to Singapore through the second link. However, the project has faced numerous setbacks, and the city remains largely unused.
  • 00:10:00 The Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository was initially proposed in the 1980s as a safe and permanent solution to the nation's growing nuclear waste problem. However, the project was met with strong opposition from the public and Congressional representatives, and questions were raised over the official hydrological and geological surveys of the site. As a result, the project has remained in flux ever since. It is unclear whether or not the repository will ever be built, and if it is, it is likely to be a failure.
  • 00:15:00 The Yucca Mountain megaproject was first proposed in the early 1900s and has been dogged by opposition from Nevada ever since. In 2010, the Obama administration deemed the project unworkable and stopped funding it. However, in 2015, the Biden administration announced that the project is no longer part of the country's plans.
