94 elements project

94 elementsThis is a must see – short films about the impact of each of the 94 naturally occurring elements and their impact – both their positive potential and their negative impact – on our lives.  What a great way for people to better understand the chemical world around us.  So far I have only watched the Copper film but this is interesting and moving on so many levels.  The opening scenes show us how our global thirst for growth and for a technology filled lifestyle has a real impact on the people of India.  I am glad I know where my firm sources its copper from, if I didn’t I would want to find out.  If you are interested in science, in sustainable development, in technology, in the lives of real people, these films are for you.
