Designed for Science on a Sphere, this video explains fast and slow carbon cycling on Earth. A banana is an example of a fast, young carbon. A chunk of coal is an example of an old, slow carbon. Carbon dioxide and vegetation on land seen from space by satellites show the annual cycle: as plants grow...
