Been having some rather exciting conversations with some of the folks who are setting up a Climate Change Research and Development Park in collaboration with Los Alamos National Labs. The focus of the park will be on climate change technologies and solutions, and my company is in the spotlight to participate in anchoring it. The sparkplug for the project is calling it "The New Manhattan Project".
In case you didn't make the connection, the Manhattan Project, to create the atomic bomb to win WW2, is what caused Los Alamos to come into existence.
