Description

Go to https://brilliant.org/MinuteEarth to build your math & science skills!
Food already in cupboards, supermarkets, & warehouses could feed humanity for 4 months, but potential food - berries, termites & krill - could extend that by another year.

Thanks also to our Patreon patrons https://www.patreon.com/MinuteEarth and our YouTube sponsors.
