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.

This video could also be used with a lesson in agriculture. Run time 18:08.
