WATCH: Video of Forest “Breathing” Gets 2 Million Views In Two Days… So What Exactly Is Happening??

Published

on

This video is alarming and intriguing to say the least. The explanation is just enough to calm your nerves.

A video making the rounds on the internet shows a forest in Sacre-Coeur, Quebec. At first, you see what appears to be the earth ‘breathing’ up and down like a chest filling with air and exhaling.

Click on the video to watch, then scroll down for the explanation.

IFL science decided to get to the bottom of it. Take a look at the video again and notice the strong winds. It turns out, those winds are moving the trees just enough to loosen up the ground beneath it, but not enough to knock over the trees… yet.

According to IFL Science’s research:

“During a rain and windstorm event the ground becomes saturated, ‘loosening’ the soil’s cohesion with the roots as the wind is blowing on a tree’s crown,” certified arborist Mark Vanderwouw told The Weather Network.

“The wind is trying to ‘push’ the trees over, and as the force is transferred to the roots, the ground begins to ‘heave’. If the winds were strong enough and lasted long enough more roots would start to break and eventually some of the trees would topple.”

Nature is cool, and scary.

A imgur user named Conniverse has ducks. We’re used to feeding ducks when we were kids, things like bread, etc. and that’s not a great thing. Ducks need nutrition too, and it turns out peas are just the thing. And GOD do they love them. Get out of their way! They’re cute, but holy hell.

When a golden retriever comes upon a marching band heading up a set of stairs to perform at a nearby stadium, it can’t help itself… it begs for a little love. The marching band, which clearly has excellent judgement, does what any sensible marching band would do.
