The Future And You -- January 19, 2011

StepheEuin Cobb (author, futurist, magazine writer--and your host) is today's featured guest.
Topics: Technological news items with my commentary on each. (1) Though the benefits to consumers will be wonderful, the dangers to investors both large and small of investing in solar cells during the next few years may be devastating; (2) a newly discovered, and possibly useful, fundamental property of light--under the right conditions, it can generate lift; and (3) the surprising discovery that very large thunderstorms on earth produce gamma rays and anti-matter.

Hosted by Stephen Euin Cobb, this is the January 19, 2011 episode of The Future And You. [Running time: 25 minutes]
