BlackRock invests $550M in world's largest direct air capture plant, that absorbs 500,000 tons of CO2 per year.
A full grown tree absorbs around 20kg/yr, so for 500k tons, we’d need 25 million trees, which would need a forest space of 250 square km (1000 trees/hectare).

For 1/20th the cost of that facility you can just plant trees that would do the job better.
Capitalism is just a scam.
These people really are some sort of biblical level plague on this earth.
Photosynthesis will do it for free, but controlling CO2 lets you control the largest sector of the economy, of any economy; developed, developing, Japan or Argentina.
