Nanothechnology.

Although I appreciated Mr. Dennis Behreandt's article, "Energy's Future" (THE NEW AMERICAN, April 4), he missed perhaps the most significant technological hope--nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is about creating wondrous materials at the microscopic level. It will soon change everything.

For example, I have the latest carbon fiber bicycle frame in my office. It weighs less than two pounds--yet it is much stronger than steel. Imagine how much oil we would save if automobiles employed similar advances? It is ridiculous that we drive ourselves to work in vehicles that weigh 20, 30, or 40 times more than we weigh. With nanotechnology, tomorrow's cars will be much lighter, stronger, and safer. They will use drops of fuel instead of gallons.

One thing is for certain: the brightness of our energy future will never be powered by the illogical emissions of large governments and the heavy bureaucrats who run them. Nanotechnology is driven by the dreams of crazy entrepreneurs who want a new carbon fiber BMW in their garage.
