Abstract:

A broad thinker who studies the intersection of science, business, and society, Juan Enriquez is the former CEO of Mexico City's Urban Development Corporation and chief of staff for Mexico's secretary of state. His latest book, The United States of America, looks at the forces threatening America's future as a unified country. In this lively TEDTalk, this founding director of the Harvard Business School Life Sciences Project 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 entire approach to fuel, he argues, needs to change. According to Nicholas Negroponte: "Juan Enriquez will change your view of change itself."
