Do not reach for the stars. They are gargantuan balls of hot plasma and nuclear fusion reactions. Waste of time.

Crimes Pay But Botany Doesn't is one of the most meaningful youtube accounts. It is only POV shots of walking through plants with a former Chicago biker talking about the different plants with notes like 'climate change you call it natural well that comet that came and destroyed the earth was also natural'
And the species genus of the plant across the screen

Icon. I guarantee he is better than Ranger Rick at getting people to care about nature
