    STOP trying to conserve wildlife. Evolution is key. Conservation of unsuited organisms is wrong. When the dinosaurs ruled, they didn't conserve wildlife, they destroyed it forcing it to evolve for the better. We are the same - just because we have smartphones doesn't mean we're the omnipotent mega-creatures that should try to help the ones that aren't as good as us. So far we are the best overall species is the world, and by conservation of lesser creatures we are stopping evolution. We are wasting loads of our precious time and money on doing things FOR the lesser organisms: almost like breathing for them. If they can't survive in the new environment (like many couldn't when the dinosaurs came in), TOUGH.

    In your latest video "Why Did T Rex Have Such Tiny Arms?" You claimed that the coccyx is useless (that it is vestigial.) This is simply not true, as the coccyx connects to several very important muscle groups, ones that not only allow you to hold in your feces, but ones that are also very important to the male as it connects to the pelvic floor. I request that you either change the video or create a new video on the coccyx stating that your previous claims were false.

    earth discussion: how to help and make people care about issues: participate, educate and problem solving with zero long term negative effects. California is in drought which is a big/huge/giant issue affecting all of us now and future as we live in the US. why are there California officers and state employees who serve to protect all persons in various functions yet did not protect resources, natural resources and environment and health and well being of all persons including wildlife? water is precious resources to all persons for environment for animals and all of us. it takes a lot of energy to produce ice from water. why waste for a challenge? a good cause can be contributed to without wasting resources. by wasting resources the act contribute to more drought and affecting all healths and all persons as we all live in the environment. videos: mreporter.net/v/video-MCYiX1Mmp2I.html mreporter.net/v/video-hdFdGFsKdNg.html mreporter.net/v/video-ECAqqj7flhg.html ,"make my challenge known" mreporter.net/v/video-JuWNng6u-8s.html Please also search for all videos utilizing youtube uploaded data and much more to uncover all evidence of wasting water contributing to drought by officers and state employees whose jobs are to protect all persons and solve all issues (including drought). Irvine pd, "leads the way" (some quote from ipd and many pd) however many officers including many the OC have contributed to more drought and waste of resources. how could this happen where is common sense to serve to protect all persons and solve issues?? please tell employees in many gov departments to not waste local, state and interstate resources and to be transparent in daily work(www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/TransparencyandOpenGovernment) and to reduce energy and resource waste. please participate in helping the environment and state issues and the planet. even trump has an ice bucket video. please help educate all those who do not care or know about climate change and drought and how environment is affected with all details at all levels. there are also recent environmental polluting by pd doing running man challenges. mreporter.net/v/video-HYLcioudtwQ.html mreporter.net/v/video-aoVa5M33Ljo.html .Every item costs so much natural resources.

    Hi Henry and his fellows/colleagues, After watching the video "How We Make MinuteEarth Videos (Behind the Scenes)", the first feeling is wow. It is because making 3-4mins video actually costs almost 1 week for each person involved. I really appreciated the effort that all of you have given and the things I learned from the video. For me, I love to share my knowledge as well but I dont have such time for these procedures and techniques. I really DO hope that all colleagues in MinuteEarth/Physics can carry on doing such great sharing with us generously, and most importantly, the audiences should at least give compliment to them by clicking the "Like" button. (Btw, I am your big fan since 2012 - after watching the 3rd video in MinutePhysics channel!) Keep up the great work. Respect!

    I need to know something for my school project and i can't find it anywhere. I have to study the history of the tangerine, but i have a question about it: How do scientist make new species of the tangerine like: how do you make them hold more water, or have more taste. Most important part of the question is: How do you make tangerines without seeds?is it done by nature, or do scientist affect the DNA of the plant. Hope to hear from you soon,sincerely yours,Nick T The Netherlands

  55. author

    Val2 years ago

    Cool channel, but the thing about the hidden cost of meat isn't..necessarily..all true. More like 1/3 the cost. The subsidies given out to farmers by the U.S government are absolutely absurd, but the damage to our body and the environment from eating meat is largely overstated (aside from water consumption. A lot of water goes to cattle in the U.S, but there are probably ways to use less and to use what we have more wisely). Soil erosion is bs because hay fields actually slow down erosion considerably and the damage to our bodies, well, let's just say that the science is hardly settled and there have been few, if any, studies done on comparing grass fed to grain fed beef.

    If you are going to continue to put out videos that are more false than true at least have a contact so that people can ask questions or debate your claims. For example in the 1970 people with the same beliefs as your organization called the change in weather global cooling, then in the 80's and 90's it was global warming. Now here we are in the age of climate change. You do realize the climate changes everyday which obviously it makes disputing it impossible. I happen to live in Indiana and recently listened to the democrat debate where Bernie said it was 65 during Christmas in his home state well it was about 65 in Indiana as well. If you look back at history in 1982 that's over 30 years ago in December it was 78. I just watched a video where you claim the earth is hundreds of millions of years old. You do realize there are no human records that go even a million years back. The concept of carbon dating was created by man and the mathematics used in determining this are also man made which is not scientifically accurate. Your organization is run by degrowthers your movement would have us all living in the stone ages if you could. Technology is a great thing, capitalism is a great thing. The only thing that affects the earth and it's climate is that big ball of fire in the sky, you know the sun. Over 30,000 scientist have signed a petition stating man made climate change is false. This is all common sense you're putting out cartoons to make it pleasing to the eye and suck people in who believe this garb and those are the exact people who voted for Obama. You know the people that have no idea who Harry Reid, Barney Frank or Nancy Pelosi are but if you ask them who spent $150,000 on her wardrobe during the 2008 election they would say Sarah Palin.

    Doesn't look like you could find any real pictures of space or Earth or any planets for that matter either. I am just having the hardest time in finding just one real picture of space. All I can find are computer generated images(CGI). Do you know why that is? Because the NASA folks, either don't know or they just won't say. I've looked everywhere and asked a lot of supposed space people, but no one has taken a crack at explaining it. Can you? Thanks

    ate night thoughts have me questioning things, lots of things. 1.If our solar system is traveling through space, which way is it going? 2. is there anything in its path? 3.does our galaxy have a direction? 4. what is our relative time to it? or our relative time to the center of our universe? 5.What happens when you stretch a hole in space-time? 6.What about when you fold it(space-time)? 7.Can such a hole in space-time be closed? 8.Would your folded pocket of space-time unfold itself if released? or simply vanish forever into its own pocket reality? 9. If it did so could you open it again? 10. Is space time like a fluid or more like a Gelatin? 11. Will the fabric of reality unravel if you poke a hole in it, like an old sweater ? 12. If you modify the the space time locally inside the well of a larger well of said space time what happens?( would warping the local space-time inside the influence of the earth have effects on the planet as a whole? 13.What about on a solar scale? could it alter our course around our star if we modify our planets relative space-time? 14. If you De-Synchronized your own space time from that of the earths? what would happen to you? 15. If you cancel out your velocity around our planets core, then that of it's rotation around our star and then the rotation around the galaxy, could you reach absolute zero? would your need to cancel out your motion relative to the universe's center to reach a total stop of atomic motion? 16. What affect could such an effect have on a living mind? 17. if i knew more people with science degrees could they answer these questions? 18, Can i share this with someone who might actually be able to ponder these questions seriously? maybe. Share with the smartest people you know! and maybe someday we can get some answers!
