Dow Chemical underwrote the series “America Revealed,” whose four installments cover the topics food and agriculture, transportation, electricity and manufacturing.

A review of Dow’s corporate website reveals the corporation’s four major interests are agriculture, infrastructure & transportation, energy and consumer & lifestyle.

In the first episode, the series discussed the rise of genetically modified (GM) foods as a solution to the pest problem in the corn industry. Perhaps not coincidentally, Dow is a major producer a GM seeds.

Episode 3, which airs tonight, concentrates on power. Dow produces components for nuclear power plants, coal-powered plants and solar panels.
