In a recent episode of EpochTV's "Crossroads," award-winning investigative reporter Joshua Philipp discussed how Gates is carrying out another globalist push to depopulate – only from an entirely different angle: taking down the forest, tucking the trees "six feet under" and regulating the "free oxygen" people breathe.
Gates and other investors are betting Kodama Systems, which describes itself as an innovator in forest restoration, can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) in the air by chopping down trees and burying them. The said forest management company has raised $6.6 million in a series of seed funding from Gates' climate fund Breakthrough Energy Ventures, as well as Congruent Ventures and other investors.
The scientists added that burying trees can save the environment as it can reduce global warming and wildfires. They believe that forests and trees are a fire hazard. "I don't know where they're finding these scientists, by the way," the podcast host stated. "Normally a lumberjack cuts trees to sell the lumber to build houses. They are arguing that they want to rather than sell the timber, take all the wood and just bury it because they are saying that is a better solution. And so, in other words, this is business. Because they are getting money to create carbon offsets and this is what Bill Gates is financing."
He also added that the U.S. Forest Services aims to thin out 70 million acres of Western forest, mostly in California in the next decade, extracting more than one billion tons of bone-dry biomass. Usually, after such forest thinning, logs of marketable size go to sawmills, with most of the rest piled up and later burned under controlled conditions. But Kodama wants to bury the leftovers in earthen vaults designed to maintain dry and anoxic (oxygen-free) conditions and protect the wood from rotting or burning.
Meanwhile, as per the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), trees absorb and store CO2 in their fibers, helping clean the air. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, a mature tree absorbs more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in one year and releases oxygen in exchange. "So, you'd actually want more trees. If you actually believe the climate change narrative, you'd actually think that the solution is to plant more trees," Philipp pointed out.
However, Gates still bankrolled Kodama's drive in a "stealth effort to bury wood for carbon removal." The way this racket works is that they are creating a product claiming to offset carbon emissions, and the "creator of the project" gets paid by certain states for the "saleable carbon offsets" and maybe someday tax credits, the host explained.

Along with the seed money, Kodama has already received $1.1 million in grants from California's forest fire agency and others, as well as purchase commitments for the carbon credits tied to the first 400 tons of trees it buries. Those credits could fetch $200 a ton.
In addition, payments company Stripe also provided a $250,000 research grant to the company and its research partner, the Yale Carbon Containment Lab, as part of a broader carbon removal announcement. That grant will support a pilot effort to bury waste biomass harvested from California forests and study how well it prevents the release of greenhouse gases, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Review reported.
It also agreed to purchase about 415 tons of carbon dioxide eventually sequestered by the company for another $250,000, if that proof-of-concept project achieves specific benchmarks.
"Biomass burial has the potential to become a low-cost, high-scale approach for carbon removal, though there is a need for further investigation into its long-term durability," said Joanna Klitzke, procurement and ecosystem strategy lead for Stripe.
For the last several years, the financial firm has pre-purchased tons of carbon dioxide that startups aim to eventually draw out of the air and permanently sequester, in an effort to help build up a carbon removal industry. It has also helped establish a different model for counteracting corporate climate emissions that goes beyond simply purchasing carbon credits from popular offset projects, such as those that involve planting trees.
