    Greenhouse Effect – GCSE science, Physics (9-1)

    – Hello, this video is about the greenhouse effect, the physical process that drives global warming and climate change. So, first of all, most of our energy comes from the sun, and the sun is a giant nuclear reactor in space. The reactions going on in the sun emit electromagnetic radiation. Now, we think of the sun as producing light and warmth perhaps, but actually it’s producing the entire range of electromagnetic spectrum all the way from radio waves at the low end to gamma rays and x-rays at the upper end of energy. Now, all that light and that radiation comes through space and by and large gets through…

    Camouflage: Animal Hide & Seek

    Shh! We’re playing hide and seek! But, I can’t seem to find Squeaks. Can you? [Soft music playing] Hah! Found yah! [Giggles] Here at the fort, we’re pretty good at hide and seek. You know why? Because we’ve learned a lot of great tricks from nature! There are lots of kinds of animals that have their own kind of hide and seek — Some animals hide so they can sneak up on their prey– other animals hide so they don’t become dinner! Either way, these animals don’t hide behind curtains or under tables like we do when we want to play hide and seek — they hide in plain sight!…

    How Nature Helps Us Learn…

    One of the things that happens when you go outside and you start to pay attention to the world in a sensory based way is you’ll notice that there are things that kind of catch your curiosity you’ll see a tree that looks really wonky and you’ll kinda wonder about why it looks different from the other ones and those sorts of questions that come up whether it’s about birds or trees or just the way a landscape has formed even what a particular bird is um those sorts of questions activate an interest and basically what I would call emotions that help us learn. um learning is something that’s…

    Earth and the Early Atmosphere | Big History Project

    NARRATOR: When the Earth first formed, the solar system was a violent place. Giant hunks of rock, metal and ice slammed into the Earth’s surface. As material collided and fused, there is intense heat and pressure. Matter vaporized on impact leaving puddles of magma. Many of the collisions released water vapor and other gases, which gradually formed a blanket of steam around the early Earth. This thickened over time becoming the first atmosphere. Some of the lighter gases like hydrogen leaked into space, but the denser steam collected and had a greenhouse effect insulating, heating and melting the surface of the planet. Over time, the Earth, in a process called…

How has our obsession with nature inspired visual artists throughout the ages? In 2016, the BBC released Planet Earth II.. the successor of the first Planet Earth series which was broadcast in 2006. Technological camera innovations, especially in the field of stabilization allowed them to create amazing shots like these While watching, you can’t help but wonder.. how do they get so close to these wild animals?

    Reclaim Your Humanity With Nature Connection

    well, nature is the original human context. nature is the environment that humanity originally developed in and we had an entire culture of storytelling and communication and social interaction that was kind of entwined with with nature and um I think there are connections between culture and the natural world the way that our culture functions and how connected people are to nature because nature is an environment when we were out there as hunter-gatherers and we had to survive by using our senses to know and just their knowledge of place to know where the berries are where we go to find food at certain times of the year…
