NANOTECH

NANOTECH

The analogy of oil being 'dope' fits. It's a quick fix with bad downsides and poor regard for the future. The present furious pace of technological growth in solar may finally allow our avarice to align with our better interests.

Common glass optical lenses produce beautiful photos, often with exquisite detail
