Their breakthrough in development of new thermocells using nanotube electrodes are yielding a threefold increase in energy conversion efficiency over conventional electrodes. These will bring a dramatic increase in harvesting thermal energy currently wasted in industrial plants and along pipelines, and in solar cell collectors which generate a huge amount of heat.

Dr. Gerald R. North, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography, Texas A&M University

On his talk at the IEEE Green Tech conference, "The Greenhouse Effect for Engineers and Scientists." Dr. North cautions moving too fast and shaking up the economy of the world by trying to limit the emissions of greenhouse gasses to prevent so-called Global Warming. He states it would be a catastrophe if we were to overturn the whole economy. "We should prepare for drastic things, but maybe not do them for a short time until we really are more certain. It is so hard to move anything like this (Cap N' Trade, Carbon Tax) through our political system, or most of the political systems of the world, that adaptation (to Global Warming) may be the final answer."
