No, for the United States the primary remedy should be reducing its share of the world's CO2 production from the current 20% to its share of the world's population (about 5%).
"Dropped Out" implies it was the decision of the researchers to quit.
Instead it was the decision of the NIH to quit funding them.
There are various proposals around to eliminate cash. Eliminating cash would eliminate lots of crime, but would also have other problems.

Has everyone forgotten the previous Slashdot story:
derekmead writes "Data from the enormous Green Bank Telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory has been used to test some of Einstein's theories, discover new molecules in space, and find evidence of the building blocks of life and of the origins of galaxies. With 6,600 hours of observation time a year, the GBT produces massive amounts of data on the makeup of space, and any researchers with reason to use the data are welcome to do so. The eleven-year-old GBT stands as one of the crowning achievements of American big science. But with the National Science Foundation strapped for cash like most other science-minded government agencies, the NRAO's funding is threatened. In August of this year, the Astronomy Portfolio Review, a committee appointed by the NSF, recommended that the GBT be defunded over the next five years. Researchers, along with locals and West Virginia congressmen, are fighting the decision, which puts the nearly $100 million telescope at risk. Unless they succeed, America's giant dish will go silent."
Anyone know what the current status is concerning this permanent planned shutdown?
So what do the employees do with their cell phones--which mostly include cameras now?
I think you need to look at the energy consumption of some of these older machines. If you seldom turn a computer off these older machines consume a substantial amount of electricity in a year. Thus on a cost basis they can end up more expensive.
How long before it shows up in major distributions such as Linux Mint?
Didn't Altavista develop a major problem with spam? You search for almost anything and porn sites were among the top items returned?
It seems that was a major reason which I switched to Google--which was in Beta at the time--and still in Beta several years later.
Any Downsides to Upgrading?
For example are lots of extensions not working with the upgrade?

Actually there could be a large market from people who recognize faces as familiar--but can't remember the name and other associated information.
18" desktop screens are something from a decade or so ago--why go back?
It' can happen on filesharing sites that advertisers have malware on their ads/sites--the firesharing site's administrators should check, but sometimes aren't very conscientious about it.
"which patterns would be most interesting or arresting"
Huh? Obviously the natural use of this is for advertising--and the advertising agencies know how to make interesting or arresting ads.
