First, I chat about Carbon Engineering, a Canadian startup that just might be the world's best chance to reverse global warming. The company uses some pretty advanced science--and some enormous fans--to suck carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turn it into fuel with no carbon footprint.
Staff writer Emily Canal discusses SynDaver, a company that makes shockingly realistic synthetic cadavers for medical schools and movie sets.
