Juan Enriquez wants to Grow Energy
Juan Enriquez challenges our definition of bioenergy. Oil, coal, gas and other hydrocarbons are not chemical but biological products, based on plant matter -- and thus, growable. Our whole approach to fuel, he argues, needs to change. Juan Enriquez thinks and writes about the profound changes that genomics and other life sciences will cause in business, technology, politics and society. This video could also be used with a lesson in agriculture. Run time 18:08.
