Mexico City's smog-capture building
« on: December 28, 2013, 03:45:27 PM »
World news? Science?

Via the BBC:


New technology is being used in a building in Mexico City that transforms pollutants into harmless chemicals.

The structure is made out of titanium dioxide, which its designers claim produces water and carbon dioxide from the city's smog.

Andrew Humphrey reports.

Video report at link.

If accurate, this has the potential to be huge.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.

It would be huge, particularly in Mexico City, which is a horrendous pollution trap since it sits in the bottom of a bowl formed by a long-extinct volcano.  I recall driving out of Mexico City one time, looking back and seeing a clear line of demarcation, with dark grey pollution below, and clear blue sky above.
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI
