I stumbled upon a wonderful new video series on YouTube called MinuteEarth that focuses on creating short, attractive, easy-to-digest videos about environmental science. The kickoff video is titled "The Story of Our Planet," which was followed by a two-part series on why leaves are green. Then the fourth piece caught my eye: "How Tall Can Mountains Be?"
Give it a watch.
