Sorry Carrie, it may say something about 2014's science or about my old laptop and a dead-slow and weak signal in the bush, but I only got "Page Unavailable" I can quite see the irony of it all.
Thanks for posting just the same, Carrie

Wow! Simply amazing what is being worked on and invented for the future! Now, if we could just work on love and living in harmony with one another- imagine with this technology what we could accomplish them! Thanks Carrie.

How can the statment below be something notable in science? Do people realize that inorder to do what these people really want, we would have to kill all the animals and then comit suicide, so as to end carbon emisions. Truly stupid. There are many ways to actually control and take advvantage of carbon emissions.

So animal lovers, will you side with the EPA or with animals?

“Today we should embrace cutting carbon emissions as a way to grow jobs and strengthen the economy. Let’s approach it as an opportunity of a lifetime. Because there are too many lifetimes at stake not to embrace it this way.”

—Gina McCarthy, Environmental Protection Agency administrator

Really makes one think about how far we've come in terms of science and technology and what may very well become reality in the near future. It's fun to ponder. Thanks Carrie.

Seems like it could be a banner year for science and technology if these come to fruition. I like the fact there will be advancements in cancer, the brain (would like to be in line to see if my electrons can be fixed lol),
If we want to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, we need to understand the sources, including methane from the natural-gas supply chain, and the options to minimize that leakage. You can’t accomplish those two goals if you don’t have the data.”on the Sixteen Studies Organized By The Environmental Defense Fund Will Determine Climate Impact From Natural-Gas Production And Distribution. Also very much in favor of the offshore wind farms, and the drones. I think it is a waste of money for the Mars study!
Sure gives food for thought. Thank you for sharing Carrie.
