Concerned about local emission pollution (car & truck exhaust)?

This palm sized unit can measure carbon monoxide molecules (2.5 microns) and smaller! Perfect!

"Sharp releases palm-sized PM2.5 sensor"

by Yuji Nitta, Nikkei staff writer - http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Companies/Sharp-releases-palm-sized-PM2.5-sensor

Comparable devices - like the Airy Technology P311 Handheld Laser Particle Counter - right now can cost as much as US$1,528.00!

It looks like the sensor itself costs about $10.00 (!) (http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/SHARP-dust-dust-sensor-GP2Y1010AU0F-PM2-5-air-quality-testing/819135_1148496936.html).

Add a processor and a simple digital display and hand held (or hanging from your belt) devices could cost under $50.00! Everyone can have one!

Network the data by combining the device with a web phone and the social tools, and researchers could plan data collection and come up with real time data on local air quality over time.

When people have information about their health they usually act on it - thus the political support for Complete Streets and sustianable Transportation and the super-high-efficiency-economy would likely increase.

A good day today.

Thomas Piketty Undermines the Hallowed Tenets of the Capitalist Catechism
Not only does capitalist growth not reduce inequality; it increases it.
by Jeff Faux

Enter Thomas Piketty, whose impressively researched analysis (600 pages plus a detailed 165-page online technical appendix) concludes that Simon Kuznets was wrong. Not only does capitalist growth not reduce inequality; it increases it.

Using data and computer power unavailable to Kuznets, Piketty pored through 200–300 years of the economic history of the largest capitalist economies—principally the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Germany, Sweden and Japan. The numbers show that that since roughly 1700, with one exceptional period, the returns to capital (profits and interest) have exceeded the rate of overall economic growth. Since the rich own most of the re-investable capital, their wealth accumulates faster than the wealth of the vast majority of people whose income depends on wages and salaries.
