To increase decrease CO2 a lot of plans are made to cover city buildings with roof gardens. One problem however is that those gardens tend to be quite heavy. Especially when you are building in a country like Japan where the ground isn't that steady, that's a problem. That's why the Japanese company Suntory invented new a new kind of soil, mixed with 50% plastic. To make it lighter, but I guess it must also be a really good way to store waste.
Is it still trash when it doesn't look like trash?

To increase CO2?? shouldn't it be 'to decrease' CO2? =P I thought plants absorb CO2 and why would anyone want more CO2 when we got plenty of that eheh!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
