Imagine a car wrapped in the stuff. You could make a hybrid sedan, or give the Tesla sports car a genuine 200-mile range. Now imagine skyscrapers and apartment buildings wrapped in the stuff. Even the least efficient buildings could generate a large chunk of their own energy. At the very least it would relieve a lot of stress on our aging power grids.

The last week and a half has been filled with many examples of Conservatives Behaving Badly.
