Are you curious about the magnitude of life that has flourished on Earth over the eons?

Dr. Peter Crockford has devised an ingenious method to estimate it and come up with a number: a staggering 10 to the power of 39 cells. As a professor in Carleton University’s Earth Sciences Department, he unveils his groundbreaking research, analyzing ancient rock signatures to gauge biosphere productivity and extrapolate the total number of cells ever to exist on this planet.

Join us as we explore:

  • The current global cell count, their primary habitats, and the rate of cell renewal.
  • Can we predict the future scope of life on Earth, including the next millennium?
  • Ambitious planetary interventions like atmospheric aerosol injections to regulate temperature and CO2 levels.

Hit play now and delve into the mysteries of Earth's past and future. Check out Peter W. Crockford, PhD (petercrockford.rocks) to learn more.
