The reformed former prisoner now has more money than God following his decade-long career as Iron Man. And fortunately, it appears he isn’t about to use that cash to fall back into old bad habits.Instead, Downey Jr. has announced a new Earth-saving initiative, The Footprint Coalition, to clean up the planet through the power of advanced technology that actually exists.Downey Jr. announced the organization at Amazon’s re:MARS, a conference dedicated to fields like robotics and space and machine learning and other Iron Man-esque topics. And lucky for us our best and brightest minds are still trying to think of ways to save this planet from the ravages of man-made climate change instead of just exporting human capitalism across the Solar System.“Between robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years,” Downey Jr. said according to Variety. “God I love experts. They’re like Wikipedia with character defects.”The Footprint Coalition is slated to launch next April. We’re also looking forward to Downey Jr.s’ upcoming YouTube Red documentary about artificial intelligence. Hopefully he gets some help from his fellow wealthy Avengers actors. This is a way better solution for saving Earth than just wiping out half of humanity.
