Science and the Environment

This is a channel about science for a world that desperately needs it. If we're going to tackle big issues like Climate Change and plastic pollution in our oceans, we all need to be more science literate. That's why I do things like #KurtisInAJar, where I sealed myself in a DIY biodome to demonstrate how we interact with the atmosphere, or the time I measured the Earth with just my bike and two sticks. Sometimes I take on an environmental issue directly, and other times I play the long game by trying to show people how to think like scientists.

My Reach

It's taken a lot to get here, but my channel is now making a big impact. In 2018 I made BBC news, trended on Twitter, and as of March 2019 my channel now has 4.8 million views, and 21 million minutes of watch-time. To put that last number into perspective, if you did nothing but watch my YouTube videos, it'd take you 40 years to watch that much (provided you never went to sleep or looked away).

The Mission

In an age where algorithms reward creators for putting out content as quickly as possible, I'm doing something different. I want my content to be super high-value. I want it to make people stop dead in their tracks and think about the big picture. I want to get people thinking about how they can use science in their own lives.

My content and work is:
  • YouTube Ad-free
  • Backed by peer-reviewed science (usually cited in the video descriptions)
  • Subtitled in English
  • Friendly for all ages and humans
  • Zero Waste (current mission in progress)

You Can Help

If you choose to support me here on Patreon, Sir Stabbington (my officemate and also a robotic cactus) and I will be forever grateful. But more than that - having funds to pay for time and materials for this channel completely changes how big and wild the videos can get. Let's make them big and wild, OK?

Thank you for even considering becoming a patron - it means a lot to me. 
Tiers
A Drop In The Bucket
$1 or more per month

Sir Stabbington is a robotic cactus that lives in my apartment - this literally puts a single drop of water into his bucket each month. Every little bit helps - each drop can make the difference between life and death (if you're a cactus). Your support really means a lot, and for that you will have my unending gratitude.

$3 or more per month

Sir Stabbington keeps a list of all the people that help us out! He's a cactus of few words, but will thank you every hour on the hour by displaying your name on his little screen.
