Estimates show that there is enough combustible ice to provide 90 years worth of energy for China. Burning the combustible ice may be a far better alternative than letting it just melt, releasing tons of methane into the air."

I have to put in a word of praise for my friends at the CLS Outreach Office, who do a creative job of explaining the complexities of synchrotron science to a popular audience. Their work with high school students is a really amazing ongoing project.

I am not familiar with this author, but I can hardly wait to read a novel populated with my CLS colleagues!

If you fail to plan, plan to fail.
