Hollywood actor and producer Robert Downey - Jr. announced a new project: he wants to clear the planet of debris using robotics and nanotechnology. The new project is called The Footprint Coalition, its official opening will be held in April 2020. Robert admitted that he was not abandoned by the «vague sensation of crisis», so turning to saving the environment was a necessity for him.    «Between robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years», - Downey Jr. said, relaying that he had been given these insights a few weeks back by a roundtable of experts. «God I love experts. They’re like Wikipedia with character defects», - he joked during his talk.

Humanity has an unprecedented and destructive impact on world biodiversity, a recent UN report said. «In 11 years I will be 65, and if by that time we reduce a little what I think is a huge threat to our future, and the chaos that we reserve, I will come back here and arrange the most insane retirement, which you only saw», - promised Robert Downey Jr.
