    You guys really think you can control everything. Like Anthony Hopkins shows in the movie “instinct”: being in control is an illusion!
    This project is barking up the wrong tree! What technology and abuse of our planet created – you try to mend by creating more technology.
    Stop destruction, stop burning fossil oils, air traffic abuse, killing of rain forest, slavery of what you call “third world”.
    The earth will be surviving – without us, you will not control that!

    There is only one guaranteed sure fire way to save the planet, get rid of the psychopaths or at the very least stop them from gaining positions of power and influence. No matter what else you do to try to save the planet, they will always seek to undermine it to further their own selfish greed. They are the ones they got the rest of us into this predicament and until their influence has been removed we will not be able to undo the damage they have and will continue to cause.
