This documentary covers a lot of information but is well worth the time to view it. Much of what is covered has been reported in part by other organizations but this group did a good job trying to piece the parts of the puzzle together in a way that makes sense:
That means that over 473 million pounds of individually wrapped candy is sold for Halloween and most is wrapped in some sort of plastic that will never be recycled
2,000 feet deep in the Pacific ocean lurks this otherworldly creature inside whose bizarre transparent head, more colorfully described as a “cockpit” by some scientists, is a set of extremely sensitive tubular eyes, from which it derives its name.
The images are amazing, the narration by Sir David Attenborough is as always perfect and the music “What A Wonderful World” (best performed in my opinion by Ray Charles) if fitting.
