Ecologically Approved

Engineers in Northern Wales wielded the Power of Physics and the Power of Chemistry to create a new salt mixture for deicing their roads. They added molasses to the salt so the salt would stick to the roads and not to cars, improving traction and limiting corrosion. However, in creating this safe-for-cars road salt, they forgot to wield the Power of Biology.

They forgot about the sheep.
