CONVENIENT MYTHS
the green revolution —
perceptions, politics, and facts

book cover

by Klaus L.E. Kaiser, is the first clearly written, comprehensive book looking at the green desires and expectations and juxtaposing these with the physical and chemical facts and realities.

CONVENIENT MYTHS explains in common terms why many of these green ideas will remain myths and dreams. The laws of nature cannot be broken. No matter how much we may desire the opposite.

TerraBase Inc. has just announced a committment to foster R&D on the COVID-19 virus by temporarily reducing the prices for their TerraTOX™ databases and TerraQSAR™ AI-based quantitative structure-activity (QSAR) programs. For example, the TerraTOX™ Explorer database lists 2650+ antimalarial compounds, including several chloroquine-type structures that are currently explored for their antiviral activity. Specifically, chloroquine-type and other antimalarial materials were recently mentioned by U.S. President D. Trump as promising agents against the COVID-19 virus and are currently explored for their antiviral, potentially anti-COVID-19 virus effects. For details, see the TerraBase Inc. web site for Antimalarials and related information.
