A recent market research study done by Lux Research found that the VC investments in nanotechnologies dropped in 2007 for the first time in the past five years.

According to their study, in the past two years VCs have focused their money on environment and energy sectors, in spite of the generous returns generated by some of the nano-tech startups (over 200 times the initial investment in average for health science applications).

This is just one more proof that global warming can be bad for your health and your wealth!
