    If you're awesome and want to "join" #TeamTrees, use the first link in the video description or you can click on the RU-clip donate link above! My favorite thing about this whole movement is that tons of people are coming together from all over the internet to unify for a common goal. I genuinely get excited when a diverse group of people come together to do something amazing, and I believe this could be our moment. If you're a working adult, please consider donating in a big way to this. I can think of no more efficient way for your dollars to be converted into ACTUAL, REAL LIFE TREES! LET'S plant 20 Million trees!!

      @Sir Chow, diversity is important. But, add to the diversity, some randomness in planting. Nothing looks more unnatural, whether in a forest or on satellite imagery than an organization bent on planting as many trees as possible in a designated area. Even when thinned, those replanted forests take on an unnatural look and feel.

    Anywhere from 3 trees to an area the size of a football field is cleared per second. Nearly 100,000 acres of forest is cleared per day. About 15,000,000,000 trees are cut down every year, according to Nature. In other words, there may be a forest that you live nearby or see from your house. This is just a joke you cannot plant enough

    Is it a bad thing that there are so many wild fires around the world (destroying tress and emitting CO2)? Do we need to be smarter about the trees that are planted and controlled burn offs?

    At the start and end of the video are you filming from Congaree National Park or E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center you visited in FL? While re-watching this video my kids saw the cypress knees behind you and it reminded them of Congaree.

    Hey man, Yotube doesn't actually "pay for the transaction fee", they just dont charge for it. Data is effectively free today, so is transactions. Made me feel a bit bummed, seeing you are the base of much of my knowledge.

    You should do a baseball video, you have to create separation between lower body and upper body to store up energy then release. Your power comes from the ground up using legs and fast twitch muscles. The bat also has the flex or whip like a hockey stick. Getting on plane with the pitch by turning the barrel and not pushing creates faster bat speed. The science behind it is amazing. Love to see your take.

    8:00 onwards reminded me of these verses
    "Indeed, within the heavens and the earth are signs for the believers." (Qur'an 45: 3)
    "And on the earth are signs for the certain (in faith)." (Qur'an 51: 20)

    so i was wondering, how come bubbles float upward? any chance you know the answer and wanna make a video on it? like the video you did on that water phenomenon where you had all those clips of the water fountains in malls and airports and everywhere. i forgot what the water phenomenon is called but its when a bubble of water floats on water for a second before it pops. so how come bubbles float upward when they're made, only to then (if it doesn't pop) float back downwards, usually smaller/shrinking. thank you!
