Better Cities, Better Growth: India’s Urban Opportunity

From The New Climate Economy:

“This report provides new analysis across 479 Indian
cities – using an innovative combination of satellite
data of night-time lights, census, environmental, and
economic data – which demonstrates a clear link
between more compact, connected urban growth and
stronger economic performance in India, corroborating
global findings.”

Nanotechnology is so small it’s measured in billionths of meters, and it is revolutionizing every aspect of our lives … 

The past 70 years have seen the way we live and work transformed by two tiny inventions. The electronic transistor and the microchip are what make all modern electronics possible, and since their development in the 1940s they have been getting smaller. Today, one chip can contain as many as 5 billion transistors. If cars had followed the same development pathway, we would now be able to drive them at 300,000 mph and they would cost just $6.00 (US) each.AmorChem Nanotechnology-300x200

But to keep this progress going we need to be able to create circuits on the extremely small, nanometer scale. A nanometer (nm) is one billionth of a meter and so this kind…
