Nanotech Vs. The Green Gang

Abstract:
Josh Wolfe: There could be trouble brewing on the horizon for nanotech.

The trouble I am talking about has nothing to do with nanotech's great scientific or commercial promise. It has to do with politics and the media. The "Green Gang" is starting to focus on nanotech research, and governments around the world are listening. There are rumblings that regulations are needed. They say they want to guarantee the safety of the technology and instill confidence in the general public.
