If, instead, we were to say that the whale's tongue weighs the same
as a single African elephant, and that the entire whale tips the
scales at the equivalent of 25 elephants, then you might suddenly
grasp its magnitude. Journalists have long recognized this
phenomenon, which is why they describe rainforest being destroyed
in areas the size of Wyoming or, indeed, Wales. How Many Molehills
in a Mountain? reveals the world through visual equivalents - so
that size, speed and mass make instant sense. You will discover how
many times higher than Monsieur Eiffel is the Eiffel Tower, and how
many Eiffel Towers there are in a Mount Everest. Plus how many
grandfathers take you back to the Jurassic period.
