Clark, Karl

Dr. Karl Clark is a chemistry superhero! His special power was that he was able to remove oil from tar sand by using a mixture of hot water and caustic soda (not soda pop). This was special because in 1925 oil sands workers in Alberta were looking for a way to separate the oil from the sand. The Alberta government gave Karl Clark money to continue his important research.
