    This Channel is bedtime stories for Nerds.
    Something about her nice voice makes it sound a little like a Children's bedtime story 😄😄.
    I do like it a lot though, the Narrator and the Channel.
    I'd love to see a video about the team and your background too, that would be nice.

    Insects and other land arthropods (arachnids )not only exponentially outnumber we humans, their combined biomass is still greater than that of all terrestrial vertebrates (amphibians, reptiles, avians/birds, and mammals).

    i don't understand this. where is the carbon dioxide? there is .04% carbon dioxide now in the atmosphere and 21% oxygen. 21% + 0.04% = 21.04%... i am adding .04% since oxygen is in diatomic form in atmosphere. but it should add up to 35%, right? where did the oxygen go? (edit: i found the answer here: www.reddit.com/r/askscience/comments/4qdc03/during_the_carboniferous_period_the_oxygen_level/d4sher0)

    2:00 what, plants use CO² to live and produce oxygen, which in turn we need to live? I suppose most of us are unaware of this basic grade school knowledge fact, since we're so desperately trying to get rid of CO².

    Humans are one species whereas insects are an entire class of animals.
    It would be more appropriate to compare the population of humans to, say, a particular species of ant.
    Or, alternatively, compare the population of all mammals to all insects.
