Plants -- we owe everything to them

I just watched a video that totally changed the way I view plants and their place in the world.  Called "How to Grow a Planet" this is a series by a Scottish scientist who has utmost respect for plants and explains in a fascinating way how we all owe our lives on earth to plants.

Plants are so amazing; they are powered from light that comes from beyond our planet.  And they are responsible for creating the oxygen we breathe. Not only that, using CO2 and water and light from the sun they create the sugars that nourish all animal life.

Pretty pivotal eh?

I knew there was a reason I love plants.  The first program in the series is called "Life from Light" and it's fascinating.  You can watch it here on British Columbia's Knowledge Network for free.  

Take an hour to revolutionize your awareness of plants and relationship with them.  You'll never look at a plant the same way again.

  1. I've been seeing documentaries as of late expressing very similar viewpoints on plant life.


I really appreciate your comments.
