    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!

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.

  56. 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.

    I have thought about this one for a while. What am I getting wrong, based on these facts.. 1. The sum of all energy in the universe is constant. 2. Empty space contains energy. 3. The universe (empty space) is expanding. So in short, more empty space = more overall energy, which violate the first fact.. Something must be wrong :)

    I am writing a book in which the setting is are different than current life. My question is more of the ecosystem but I feel it requires a bit of preface and explanation. The story takes place a couple hundred years after a massive virus destroys everything in the animal kingdom that did not make it into shelters heavily regulated by an advance computer system. (The virus takes place several hundred years after WWIII, which has yet to happen itself, and technology had advanced so that a computer system world wide can exist independently of man relying on alternative energy sources for energy to do all that it can do. This technology had had problems a few hundred years before WWIII with the usual "robot take-over," but had since been improved so that the computer does not want to take over and rule the world. After the virus, the surviving people do not know what to do with the technology that survived as well, and because it long lost its "take-over" mentality, it does not tell people what to do, and therefore is hardly used to its fullest potential.) As you can imagine, animals were not smart enough to run to the shelters before the virus killed them, humans were. Some sentimental humans took with them pets (from these I have evolved cats, dogs, birds, and rabbits.). And one guy thought that saving bugs, insects, and the like was important in order to have a stable ecosystem for when man can come out of his shelter. (I named him Dr. K. Kandid, but don't ask my why. I don't know.:p) Man stayed inside the shelter for several generations, but Kandid's work was passed down to his children. Obviously, the very same bugs were not the ones that set out of the shelters, but they were cultivated and their offspring were cared for. Assuming that plants of most species can survive without animals (I know it's not so, but let's say they evolved to be independent of animals, for example, flowers can self-pollinate without bees help.), what bugs, insects, and the like would be needed to kick-start a new, stable economy? My question, that is, is what bugs, insects, and the like have the mot impact on economy? Would love the answer to this. (If not, I'll just make it up. Creative writers can do that. It's fun.:p) Thank you, Felicia I apologize for such a long-winded question. I didn't see how to ask it without an explanation. I, also, apologize for any grammatical errors or simply confusingly worded phrases and sentences. My excuse is no greater than that I'm tired.

    I've thought of a nice tool/video you can/should do for minuteearth / minutelabs, an interactive map of earth with a slider for sea level. The sea level slider could also have date associated with the last time levels were similar to that on the slider. This could be used to teach people about how migration of humans and animals could've happened at various levels. Tell me what you think because my curiosity deeply invested in this.

    I can't comment on the "how honey is made" video, since you've turned off comments there. I also can't comment on it's reddit thread (which is where you send commenters for that video) because the comments are archived/locked and not accepting more. So I have to come here for this... I have enjoyed your videos, how you combine education with entertainment and cover a variety of interesting subjects. So I was shocked to see such a glaring error in that video. PLEASE fix that video. You speak about honey bees but show a Wasp Nest. Bees live in hives which in nature would be in a cave or hollow tree or the like. They do not build paper nests that hang from trees!

    Dear Minute Earth, Would it be possible to make a video on Spinoza's Ethics? Baruch Spinoza is said to be the first man (and philosopher) to ever come up with the idea that nature, humans, the human mind and anything else that exists in the universe, is actually all part of the same 'one substance' that he describes as being God. His theory could be the very first example of what we now know of as the 'big bang', or rather, his interpretation of a great expansion. His Ethics are so difficult to wrap one's mind around however, that I am not able to fully understand how he gets from point A to point B in his description of how he sees the universe. Perhaps your illustrations may help shed light on it? Here are the Ethics in case you are interested. books.google.ca/books?id=dMDtDRSs7DcC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

All of New York City's water needs for 12 years could be satisfied by the amazon river in one day.50% of all discovered species are in the amazon rainforest. It accounts for 20% of the earths oxygen. 2 football fields of the forest are destroyed every day. If the destruction of the forest does no slow down the whole forest will be gone in 40 years.

    Good video but very irresonsible of you, in "How to Make a Seashell - Just Add Water!" to not tell viewers that climate change has already changed ocean pH..you don't even mention the phrase "ocean acidificadtion" until the very, very last few seconds, and then no clear statement that it's a known result of GHGs. People need to know about this real, already-happening outcome of our pumping so much GHGs into atmosphere..please explicitly inform viewers about such known dangers, indeed, known already happening (but expected to worsen) outcomes of our massive use of fossil fuels (and other GHG increasing human activities) P.S. Added 20 mins later: saw your "400ppm" video, good video! But does not cancel out the need to not brush under rug about ocean acidification being a future AND present danger with real human caused roots...thanks.

    What would happen if you poked a needle in your skin. Now what would happen if you poked a need in your skin, inserted a small tube, and a pump. Well, the same thing would happen that happens when we drill for oil. The Earth is alive, its a living thing, and it can die. It heats itself, and burns hotter than the sun, where do you think the energy comes from. Well fusion most likely, but it still needs fuel. The amount of oil and natural gas used is astronomical and it is sucking the planet dry. Just like if something was sucking are blood, we could handle it. Unless it sucks to much, then we are done for. So, I ask you minute earth, could you make a video showing the similarities between what would happen when a human gets poked with a needle and what happens when a hole is drilled for oil. It would also be cool if you scaled the earth to human size, Then used that scale to scale down the gallons of oil and gas used yearly. Then convert to quartz. It will be a nice reference between how much oil and gas the earth has to how much blood a human has. Regards; David Kaufmann
