Drinking Nasty Swamp Water (to save the world)

Birt 15 feb 2019
While I'm normally a physics guy, got to give the chemists out there props on this one. Also props to Bill and Melinda Gates for partnering with me on this video. Check out their 2019 annual letter here- b-gat.es/2RPpLCc

Summary: I used some powder that has a flocculant in it to make swampy water drinkable. This can be used in situations where people don't have access to drinking water. Then I met up with Bill Gates and we talked about why we should help poor countries.
