Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has just launched his radical new scheme that promises to “save the planet” from “climate change.”
The project promised to remove “carbon emissions” from the Earth’s atmosphere by chopping down trees and burying them underground.
The move will see 70 million acres of forests, mostly in the Western United States, cut down.
According to the project organizers, “scientists” say “burying trees can reduce global warming.”
Kodama claims that burying the trees will prevent them from allegedly “spewing” carbon back into the air.
The trees will be buried instead of being used for conventional means, like timber for housing.
Scientists say, "burying trees can reduce global warming as well." I don't know where they're finding these scientists – Watch more on Josh's analysis of Bill Gates' agenda to chop down forests.

This week, Gates has just launched a new product to work alongside his tree-chopping project.
Graphyte, a carbon removal startup backed by Gates’s Breakthrough Energy, just kicked off operations at its Arkansas-based plant, according to Inc.
After the trees are culled by Kodama, they will be sent to Gates’s Graphyte for “carbon casting.”
The company’s “carbon casting” technology involves drying and compressing biomass from timber and agricultural by-products into blocks roughly the size of shoe boxes, the report explains.
The blocks are then covered in an impermeable barrier, buried underground, and monitored to prevent decomposition.
This supposedly eliminates potential emissions created when the biomass is burned or left to decompose.
The one-year-old company has just launched its goal of removing 15,000 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere by the end of 2024 by burying culled trees.
The company is also aiming for an additional 50,000 in 2025.
“Graphyte’s first facility producing carbon casting blocks this week will become the largest carbon removal company in the world in the next several months and alone will remove 50,000 tons next year,” Graphyte CEO Barclay Rogers said in a statement.
“This is not a hypothetical, this is happening as we speak.”
Graphyte claims its “innovation” will allow for the removal of carbon at the cost of about $100 per ton.
Carbon removal via direct air capture, by contrast, can cost anywhere from $600 to $1,000, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The startup predicts its method will keep captured carbon out of the atmosphere for more than 1,000 years.
Graphyte boasts investment from Breakthrough Energy Ventures, which counts Gates, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Alibaba’s Jack Ma, Virgin Group’s Richard Branson, and hedge fund manager Ray Dalio on its board or among its investors.
It already inked a deal in November 2023 with American Airlines, which paid for the removal of 10,000 tons of CO2.
