    Actually we are in charge, if we wanted you could annihilate the entire population of insects and animals. Heck, we are doing it right now!

    I would prefer that we were all on the metric system and sadly I live where we are not. Could you possibly use both systems in your videos, or help me make them change or email be a converter sheet so I would not have to figure it out every time? Please?

    Do you guys have a video on arachnids? You guys should consider doing a video dedicated to the vampyromorphidae class. Sure it's biased because it's my favorite of cephalopods, but every other species except the ONE we have living today is extinct, and a video on what the others were like would be neat.

    This was covered in the Cosmos series by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. For 60 million years there was nothing that could eat lignin, a molecule in wood. Think of the last ice age with a sheet of ice 2 miles thick. Now, think about how many trees grew during the Carboniferous Period and piled up as so much leaf litter on the forest floor. Two miles deep doesn't even come close.
    Then, along came a mushroom that could eat lignin and it's mycillium colonized the top layer. 4:18 Mushrooms breathe oxygen and expel Co2 and that's a two shot swing which may account for the drop in oxygen levels.
    The interesting thing about all of this is all of that locked up carbon in the form of wood that never decomposed and was buried; 60 million years worth of it. That's the fermented soup that powers the industrial revolution; hydrocarbon fuel. And we've burnt most of it in the past 300 years.
    There is only one economy. There has only ever been one economy and will only ever be one economy; the Sun. It took 60 million years to grow the trees that turned into our oil reserves and we squandered that resource for short-term gain and probably killed ourselves in the process. Hats off.

    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:
