Summary
Use this program to emphasize connections between the Earth's natural resources and the latest advances in technology and medicine. The video shows how research into the chemical makeup of geological and biological materials drives the innovation of energy systems, building techniques, and pharmaceuticals-and how these improvements can save lives and reduce stress on the environment. Resin coatings for giant wind turbines, wax-plaster mixtures for energy-efficient homes, and fungi-derived compounds that could lead to an osteoarthritis cure-the video features these and many other advances, suggesting a future in which humanity can both profit from and protect the Earth
