Carbon's ubiquitous presence in fossil fuels can sometimes give it a bad rap - but it is also the element of life, of energy, of climate, and of the environment. It's a building block for everything. In Symphony in C, geophysicist and musician Robert Hazen provides an in depth examination of  the sixth element from its Big Bang origins to the threats that carbon compounds pose to our future climate. 

Robert speaks with Kathryn Ryan.
