The second video is a promotional video put out by an energy company explaining a proposed technology for energy production.
Your assignment is:
– Watch the videos and post your comments on what you think about it. What did you find most interesting about the videos?
-Which aspect do you think is more important, the physical attributes like resources or the biological study and preservation? And why?
-The technology proposed in the second video is several years old, why do you think this has not been explored or used?
