Carbon Offsetting Las Vegas

The project is a masterplan designed to carbon offset all of Las Vegas's annual carbon emissions. The megastructure consists of a 900 square kilometer landscape of forest and carbon pumps designed to both absorb and permanently pump carbon dioxide underground. The project is supported by a 5 kilometer high canopy held by tension cables that collects snow to irrigate the project.
