Robert Downey Jr. is on a mission to clean up Earth in 10 years, proves he’s a real-life Iron Man

Given the pressing environmental challenges our planet faces, one might wish for a superhero to emerge. Well, it appears we might have found one in Robert Downey Jr., and this time, it’s not just about his Iron Man persona.

The actor is gearing up to play a significant role in shaping a better future for Earth. Downey Jr. has ambitious plans to contribute to the global cleanup effort before it’s too late.

In a move that mirrors his on-screen alter-ego Tony Stark’s ingenuity, Downey Jr. intends to leverage a powerful tool – artificial intelligence (AI). Brace yourselves, as this news might seem like a plotline from science fiction rather than reality.

Reports reveal that Downey Jr. recently announced the launch of a new organization called The Footprint Coalition. Starting in 2020, this initiative aims to cleanse the entire planet within the next decade, harnessing the capabilities of AI.

During the Amazon Re: Mars conference, the actor expressed his belief in the potential positive impact of artificial intelligence when used for the greater good.

He stated, “Between robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years.” Downey Jr. also expressed his admiration for the scientists and researchers who have made this ambitious project feasible, saying, “God, I love experts. They’re like Wikipedia with character defects.”

While specific details are currently scarce, Downey Jr. claims that The Footprint Coalition will kick off in 2020. A dedicated website has been established to allow people to track the progress of this groundbreaking initiative.
