A Day Without Chemistry

(YouTube link)

The American Chemical Society produced the video A Day Without Chemistry to raise awareness of the many ways we depend on chemistry in our daily lives. The International Year of Chemistry (IYC) officially begins on February 1st.

The 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry, envisioning a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of humankind. Also being celebrated in 2011 is the centennial of the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Marie Curie for her work on radioactivity, and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the International Association of Chemical Societies.

The American Chemical Society has a site full of ways to learn about chemistry and share your interest called ACS Celebrates IYC 2011, featuring new information and activities each day. Link

Too bad the rulers of the USA (and that would be the rich people, not the government) are doing everything they can to sell the knowledge and expertise to other countries and then move all services to the 3rd world.

So all you want to be chemists, look forward to 8-10 years or so Undergrad and Grad school (and the associated costs) only to work as a greeter at Walmart for minimum wage.

Yeah!!!!!!! for capitalism.
