The Cost of Cleaning Up

by Oonah V. Joslin

“Water has all sorts of stuff in it
stuff we don’t want
things that can really hurt you,” says Dr. Wong

The future lies in
gold and palladium
nanoparticles
ten thousand times smaller
than a human hair
held by glass beads to pump ground water through
clean up waste
break down corrosives
toxins
pesticides,
tri-
chloro-
bloody-
ethylene

reactors better
than the carbon equivalents
of today
so they say

more cost effective

So you see
palladium and gold
may soon be worth
their weight in
water
