It’s Okay To Be Smart Episode 1: Life by the Numbers
Check out the first episode of my new YouTube science series from PBS Digital Studios! I’m practically co-workers with Big Bird now!
This episode is all about the scale of life on Earth. So there’s now over seven billion people on Earth, but does that make us a successful species by numbers alone? And while humans may be getting heavier every day, how does our weight stack up to the rest of biology?
We’ll learn about “biomass” while we take a trip through some forests, a spoonful of soil and deep into the oceans to find out just how much stuff there is out there.
