      Quotes from the 2004 Prentice-Hall book:
      Nanotechnology and Homeland Security
      by Daniel & Mark Ratner

      Page 29, quote from Admiral David Jeremiah.
      "Military applications of molecular manufacturing have even greater
      potential than nuclear weapons to radically change the balance of power."

      Page 100/101:
      "Nanotechnology is promising to improve batteries to the point where they
      may become the sole power source for a car or truck without huge
      performances sacrifices."

      Page 102:
      "While batteries don't generate energy the same way fuel cells do, they
      allow us to use electricity generated at industrial power stations, which
      are much more efficient in converting fossil fuel to energy than current
      cars are. Batteries also eliminate the need for a gasoline distribution
      system." (Ouch! RC)

      Page 102, quote from Richard Smalley, 1996 Nobel Prize Winner.
      "The problem of energy has vast political, economic, and social aspects that
      have been at the root of most wars... The new energy technology must not
      involve burning carbon. When all the costs are figured in, fossil energy is
      too expensive now..."

      Page 22:
      "Nanostructures... play key roles... in reducing the burning of
      carbon-contained materials, and for making the energy supply entirely
      independent of hydrocarbons such as petroleum. Nanostructure applications in
      energy... include nanoporous (aerogel) carbon electrodes for advanced, high
      energy, and high power battery structures."

      Page 64:
      "Soldiers currently carry more than 20 pounds of batteries and portable
      power supplies into battle."
