Feathers to Plastic BARC strikes again

Today, I was able to watch a demonstration at USDA/BARC which turned poultry feathers into biodegradable plastic. Think a moment of the possibilities, and then note all my postings on the lack of support for this type of research. From climate change to food safety, fundamental science keeps sustaining our quality of life, and we keep through our benevolent polticians benigningly allowing it to fade away. If you are interested in helping and or supporting this kind of research, please write to me: JPETER@BEHNKES.NET
