One of this week's talks: #Scicomm on "Gene Drive Modification" at Nat'l Acad of Sci

Putting together my 30-min presentation for this event

My talk is entitled, "Forecasting Novel Technology Risk Perceptions: Are We There Yet?"

Will definitely raise some of the themes from this post, which addresses the failed but continuing project to forecast nanotechnology-risk perceptions, as well as the survey-artifactual nature of studies of GM food.

But if anybody wants to make suggestions on these or other points, I'm all genetically-modified ears.

Oh--there's another talk on tap for week, too: A local intellectual-salon type group as invited me to give a talk next Sat.  They'll be a lot of science-curious folks, and I'm eager to tell them how weird but important they are!

Strikingly similar media following among partisans, but trust is a differentiater:

A nanotech CO2 harvesting for profit scheme:

• Unusual carbon nanotube wools are introduced electrosynthesized in molten carbonate.
• C2CNT is CO2 transformation to carbon nanotubes by electrolysis in molten carbonate.
• (Air or exhaust) CO2 is the only reactant in C2CNT carbon nanotube wool synthesis.
• C2CNT product value (>$100,000) compared to cost ($660) incentivizes CO2 removal.
• CO2 becomes a useful, valuable resource rather than a greenhouse gas pollutant.
