Is there really something we can learn about our future from long-extinct dinosaurs? What can paleontology teach us about our planet, climate, and the animals that roam the earth today? What, for example, connects a penguin to T. Rex?  Why did T. Rex have tiny arms?

Join paleontologist and geologist Dr. Kenneth Lacovara, discoverer of the newly-found massive dinosaur Dreadnoughtus, as he ties together history, climate change, dinosaurs and our place on our planet.
