I’ve got to admit, I love this talk. Not just the content, but Rosling’s delivery. Watched it 3 times today and still thinking about it.
Ah, I agree Southern Fried Scientist! I’ve already showed the link to my mom and brother. This talk has cleared up many questions I’ve had on sustainablity. I really like how he brought up that his mom had to read since she didn’t have to do laundry. He does a great job of presenting the pros and cons of what technological advances has done. I now am on board with the great importance of finding alternate, green energy source!
