Non-specifically, the impact of chemistry cannot be overstated. Every single material thing in the universe is a chemical, and the ability to understand and manipulate these chemicals is responsible for everything from modern food and drugs to plastics and computers. Without our knowledge of chemistry, the world would be a far more mysterious place and far, far less advanced place.
Stars are chemical. The atoms in us were once in ancient stars. Dust to dust is very accurate. Food is chemical. You are what you eat, right down to the molecules of fat from that french fry you ate last week. Air is chemical. All matter is chemical. And all matter has energy.
Chemistry is involved in everything, it is the basis of life, without chemistry we wouldn't exist.
