Why is Global Warming so much more dominant in news than say Nanotechnology research. While the latter is far more important for the future of mankind, the latter is mostly a politicized science, which should be seen highly sceptical. While Nanotech might improve our wealth, well-being and our future life, the latter (up-to-now) has only produced beaurocracy, regulations and heated debate with many many insults.
I don't even truly question the fact whether there is global warming or not (or regional climate change), I question whether it should be so important and over-hyped.
Yes, buhhhouhhh, it is a doomsaying genre of science, but still, this is the atomic bomb, too and nobody is hyping it as much (well, except the Iran crisis).
