    [Bill Nye]
    The genes of you and me
    Theyre all made of DNA
    Were all made of the same chemicals
    DNA - were all made of DNA

    Only the fittest survive
    And that is the key
    Natural Selection
    That is the key

    We are surrounded by endless forms
    Most beautiful, most wonderful
    Evolution - the greatest show on Earth

    There is grandeur in this view of life
    Evolution - the greatest show on Earth

    The history of life can be thought of
    As a many branched tree
    The five kingdoms of life
    were established early on

    Protists- amoeba like creatures
    And animals

    We find ourselves perched on one tiny twig
    In the midst of a blossoming tree of life


    We are surrounded by millions of other species
    Walking, flying, burrowing, stalking, chasing, fleeing,

    Animals strive to reach this one ultimate goal
    To ensure the survival of the next generation
    This one ultimate goal
    To pass on their genes

    7 Things About EARTH Science CANT Figure Out


    7 Things We Don't Know About Earth...

    From how it even works to where and how life began, to who picked the name Earth....these are 7 Things About Earth Science Just Can't Figure Out.

    Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico tasteofjam.com

    Plate tectonics is the accepted theory that Earth's crust and upper mantle is made of large fragments which glide over the rest of the mantle, collectively forming a shell to protect us from the firey-death 60 kilometres beneath our feet - but as for what's below that, we're still working that out.

    By analysing sedimentary and volcanic rocks we can track changes in the Earth's magnetic field throughout our planet's history, and in doing so we've noticed some rather strange anomalies, one of which is occurring right now.
    The prediction of earthquake activity and volcanic eruption has improved significantly over the past century, but there are still many things we don't know about these devastating natural disasters which would really help us prepare for them in future, and that would mean we can quit making cheap-ass disaster movies where Morgan Freeman always seems to be President.

    It's a good job classy civilizations from antiquity were the ones who named our Solar System's planets. Mars was the Roman God of War, Jupiter the Roman God of Sky, and Uranus the Greek God of Heavens - but if they were all named today we'd call them Planet McPlanetyface, Ringy Ringerson and…and we'd probably keep Uranus because it's funny.

    If any 20th Century Fox producers are watching this we are not referring to those Ray Romano movies you keep making. You've done five already guys, that's enough, it's time for the Ice Age to end, Sid and Manny to go extinct and their corpses to start rotting into mush.

    Far likelier than a sudden ice age is an extreme global heat crisis, because today around 97% of climate scientists agree climate change is occurring; and 82% believe it is likely caused by the activities of man. But if you disagree with them that's fine, everyone's entitled to their opinion, however you will be forced to go sit in the special corner with Bobby Ray Simmons to discuss flat earth theories and how the moon is made of cheese.

    Earth Sciences at Cambridge - Trailer


    The full film can be accessed at:

    One of the great strengths of the Natural Sciences Tripos is that it gives undergraduates a chance to try subjects that they might not have encountered before. Earth Sciences is one of these, with many school pupils having only a peripheral experience of the subject from their geography lessons. We decided to make a film showcasing many of the important themes of Earth Sciences, illustrating the scope and breadth of the subject and its relevance to fundamental problems in physics, chemistry and biology. The film is close to documentary in style, so the viewer comes away not only knowing something of how the Earth works, but also understanding the scientific process used to gain this knowledge. We hope we also manage to put across some of the excitement of doing research in Earth Sciences! The aim is that the film will be watched by all incoming NatSci freshers and, because we were careful not to concentrate too much on Cambridge, more generally by 6th formers who are thinking about what science subjects they might like to study at University.

    Earth Science Sample Clip


    This is a sample from Rock 'N Learn Earth Science featuring animation by Scott Cawthon and voice work by Vic Mignogna.

    Want an exciting way to learn important facts and get ready for an Earth science test? Marko the Pencil and his friend Terra take learners on a fascinating journey to Marko's Super Science Station where it's easy and fun to understand science concepts and boost test scores. This science video covers the Solar System, weather and the water cycle, types of rocks, properties of minerals, volcanoes and plate tectonics, weathering, and alternative energy. Meets the National Science Education Standards.

    Kevin is a fifth-grader who actually enjoys taking science tests because he knows the perfect way to become well prepared. Even difficult science concepts can be easy to grasp with clear explanations and animations. Marko, a humanoid pencil, has just the right tips to help Kevin understand science, have fun, and get ready for tests.

    Kevin is already waiting at Marko's Super Science Station when he is joined by Marko and Terra, an animated globe who knows a thing or two about Earth science. As Terra explains, Earth science has a lot to do with understanding astronomy, geology, meteorology, and more. Kevin begins his science test preparation with the Solar System, learning about the Sun and the eight planets that orbit the Sun.

    Marko and Terra show Kevin an easy and entertaining way to remember the planets. Kevin soon learns all about the asteroid belt, dwarf planets, and comets. What happens in space affects things on Earth. Kevin gets a good grasp of how the Earth and the Sun interact to create day and night and cause the seasons.

    Kevin and his friends have lots more to explore, including exactly how the water cycle influences weather. He learns a catchy song about evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and accumulation. He finds out how changes in air pressure cause wind.

    In the Geology Learning Center, Kevin discovers different kinds of rocks and learns how they were formed. He learns that fossils give clues as to what the environment was like. Plus, he attends a cool rock concert performed by animated rocks: Sedimentary Sandstone, Igneous Granite, and Metamorphic Marble. After rocking out, Kevin is ready for an experiment involving mineralogy. He uses properties such as color, luster, hardness, and streak to identify an unknown mineral sample.

    Kevin next blasts off, compliments of a volcano, to the Topographic Learning Center. There, he finds out what caused changes in the Earth's surface throughout time and learns about plate tectonics and the development of shield volcanoes, cinder cones, and stratovolcanoes. He also experiences weathering and erosion. Lots of humor keeps students laughing as they get a good foundation for the types of material they will find on an Earth science test. Animated examples help students understand sediment, erosion, glaciers, and deposition.

    Any Earth science adventure would be incomplete without a visit to the Energy and Resource Learning Center where Kevin explores different kinds of perpetual resources, including the Sun, the wind, geothermal energy, and the ocean. He learns about renewable and nonrenewable resources, along with the latest ways to conserve energy and use energy more efficiently.

    Finally, when students are ready, they can join Kevin, Marko, and Terra to take a practice Earth science test. Marko and Terra coach Kevin on how to remember what he has learned and apply his knowledge to scoring high on Earth science tests. It's a great review for all that's been learned.

    Water is all around us, and its importance to nearly every natural process on earth cannot be underestimated. The water cycle is the movement of water around the Earth in all its forms, from the ocean to the atmosphere, to snow, soil, aquifers, lakes, and streams on land, and ultimately backs to the ocean. This video explains what the water cycle is and how important it is to life on earth.
