Dirt 2.0

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!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
