This is madness! This is Dubai!

I have trouble believing the only thing standing between us and a 2.4 km high tower has been a lack of oil-rich theocrats with something to prove. This particular tower is only a rumour, but if any city were to build it, it would be Dubai.

The top of the tower would be hundred of meters higher than Denver is above sea level! Surely there is a practical restriction on the height of a tower, if not structural limits.
