Althought planting...plants will help reduce the amount of CO2 and increase the amount of O2 (not by much), you need to find enough space to put all
of these plants in. Also problems like invasions and adaptation should be considered. Also, those hairy plants will probably be not edible and need
water to survive, so we will be spending money on these plants hoping that the plan will succeed. Someone is probably gonna come up with an idea to
'dye' the oceans white as they cover a large area and are blue so they absorb heat!
also, the genetically modified plants will use energy to produce the [insert color] pigment and hairs instead of using that energy to produce fruits
(or roots etc), so the soybeans will probably not be favored by farmers :/
its a good idea nonetheless and maybe scientists could come up with a working solution. Plants needing little water and can survive in harsh
environments yet be able to reflect a decent amount of energy back into ...space
People should go outside naked to save the planet!
