The only bombing that should be!!!

The tree bombs have funnel shaped tin bottoms filled with fertilizer, and will plant themselves when they hit the ground. As the trees take root, the tin disintegrates. The idea is to plant these trees in deforested and otherwise hard to reach areas. As many as 1 billion trees could be planted in a year—that is a bunch of C02 eaters on the ground. Successful tests have been performed by one of these planes in several remote places, including Scotland and China. This method is a direct and more permanent solution to the problem than some of the other projects on this list, it is one idea that is not that hard to implement on a large scale

That's actually pretty cool. It could revolutionize the marijuana growing industries.

I've seen this before. Assuming the right trees, like ones suitable for semi-arid environments or trees that are compatible with already established flora, a good plan. Like to see it happen.

Cool. :-) Eh, too bad we can't temporarily speed up their development process. Then again, if we could some Islamofascists could fuck us up with Redwoods instead of bombs. :X
Which means that to me the offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith that can\'t give way, is the offer of something not worth having.

I would support this, if I had political power or money... since that's not the case, looks cool :D.

It seems like spraypainting has some competition.
No religion for me thank you very much; I 'm full of shit enough as it is.

Being flabbergasted about existence never made anyone disappear in a poof of flabbergas, so nevermind why we're here. We ARE here.

Well, I read a dutch book last year about marihuana-growers  in the Netherlands and I don't know if they did this for real, but anyway there was this idea just to throw marihuana seeds out of a Glider, as a way of protest also.

I think that is a funny idea. Just imagine marihuana plants growing at random places. :D

I'm in Canada, they do grow at random places.

I think this could actually be cheaper than having people plant them.
