It says "Consider a roof top coating on your car with this new material." I don't see why anyone would want that. The coating would saturate with CO2, then it would absorb no more. And it would remain on your car for years, uselessly full. How is this useful? Alternatively, what if it absorbed the carbon, then released it later, so as to be reusable? Why would that be any use as a rooftop coating? The release of the carbon would go back into the atmosphere. The whole idea of a rooftop coating for your car is pointless. Surely the scientists who developed it would not say that. Is this from a marketing person?
Why did Google even have Wifi interception equipment on their vehicle? I see no legitimate reason for this capability for a vehicle designed to take photos for street view. Oops-- we accidentally gathered information using equipment that is designed to gather this information?
I wish the article spelled Zimmermann with two Ns.
