Quote of the day

Molecular manufacturing will enable the poorest countries to bypass the difficult and dirty process of the industrial revolution.

Building codes and politics permitting, nanotechnology will make possible revolutions in the construction of buildings. Buildings can be made so energy-efficient and so good at using the solar energy falling on them that most are net energy producers.

What does…(MM) mean for the environment? It means that the human race could feed itself with ordinary, naturally grown, pesticide-free foods while returning more than 90 percent of today's agricultural land to wilds.
