Without a reality check, claims of nanotech's benefits are a con
As the Greenpeace report, "Future Technologies, Today's Choices" has caused some comment, I thought it would be helpful to lay out our position more fully. We see a mixture of promise and concerns. Technology can do great things but cannot deliver on its own. We have the knowledge and technology to feed everyone, but it doesn't happen. The bigger issue is how nanotechnology is going to be deployed, to what purposes and in whose interests. If nanotech is going to be as big as many think, then itís a question that every person on Earth has a stake in.
