Beakman weighs a slightly deflated basketball, pumps it up with air, and weighs it again to prove that air has weight. He explains that different gases have different densities, and to demonstrate this, he uses two shopping bags hanging from opposite ends of a suspended stick. He uses a pitcher to collect CO2 gas coming off of dry ice. When he pours the CO2 into one of the shopping bags, that bag's side of the balance goes down, illustrating that CO2 is denser than air and that different gases have different densities.
Bill explains the three states of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. He explains that these states differ in only the amount of energy they contain. Bill also uses several examples to illustrate the difference between the three states.
Kip talks to members of an environmental organization about why they do not talk about the harmful effects that animal products have to the environment. The gases that are released when raising livestock for food and drinks are more harmful than other fossil fuels. Because of the increase in meat and dairy consumption, there is going to be a major increase in dangerous pollution. He notes that the industry is destroying oceans, animals, and other water consumption problems. But Kip is also worried about why the government is not talking about this.
