Inventor Marshall Medoff Could Be on Track to Stop Global Warming

By

The two words most often used to describe inventor Marshall Medoff are "eccentric" and "genius." For 15 years, the 81-year-old isolated himself inside of a garage at a storage facility in the middle-of-nowhere Massachusetts to solve one of the world’s biggest problems: global warming. 

And he may have cracked it. Marshall has invented a way to break biomass apart, allowing for the sugar in inedible plant life to be transformed into environmentally friendly biofuels and plastics.

Learn how the brilliant innovator came to discover a solution to one of the most difficult challenges facing scientists today and what his work means for the survival of our planet.
