Follows inventor Dean Kamen and correspondent Joanne Colan as they explore the emerging technologies being developed to tackle the most daunting global challenges of today. If you could take just one day’s excrement from all the humans and cows in the world and harness the energy locked inside, you’d have enough electricity to power New York City for seven years. Until recently, all that waste was just going to waste. The program unveils how the race is on to develop processing plants that can harness this previously pooh-poohed waste into power.
