Treasures of the Earth: Power

Season 43 Episode 20 | 53m 10s

Drill down to discover the treasures beneath our feet that power our world.

Personal cars, planes, lights, hot showers–all of these are gifts from our fossil fuels… but they have a dirty dark side in that they are polluting the planet.
