“Engineers design fake ‘trees’ to pull in CO2
One tower uses resin to trap carbon dioxide; energy industry seen as buyer.”
This is only one headline (msnbc), one version of the news all around the world: some engineers/corporations? are getting ready to invest who knows how much money into making even more industrial contraptions – using plastics too – to do the work that, forgive me, but, god/the great mystery made real Trees perfectly suited for!
“[Lackner’s] vision is to have thousands of artificial trees and estimates that every single one would remove 90,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year – the equivalent emissions of 20,000 cars.” (BBC) – great.) Well, law; that must be more than what Trees can do!
BUT I don’t wanna live in a world full of fake Trees! We make Bladerunner and then we live it out!
Why the hell don’t we just PLANT REAL TREES!!!!?!!!!!?
What is the matter with us????
We cut ’em down all across every continent, somehow overlook what every grade school kid knows; that Trees take in CO2, and breathe back out OXYGEN – not to mention give us shade, keep our streets cool, and furnish our homes and fires – and now some weirdly com-part-mentalized group of scientists/engineers comes up with this insane idea, to make these really ugly, (“It looks like a goal post with Venetian blinds,” says inventor Columbia University physicist Klaus Lackner – (BBC news/science)no doubt energy consuming MACHINES to do what ancient beings have done for free, and at their ease, all along –
Fields of artificial trees, thousands of ’em – nothing green, just more grey & white plastic crap that’ll probably all still be standing there, like the pyramids, monuments to our dis-connect.
makes me so sad,
