Our transcription: Geologic resources are essential for modern civilization.
With the exception of solar energy, nearly everything humans depend on comes from the Earth.
Everything that we build our civilization with, our homes, the car that you drove in with today, what was it made of, how it was fueled.
The material you're sitting on or your desk, the pencil you write with.
All the materials that we live with on an everyday basis come from the Earth.
Somehow they've got to be extracted from the Earth, and the geologist has that principal role.
