Paul Nicklen: TED Video

One of our readers just shared an amazing video of Paul Nicklen, a National Geographic photographer, about his journey to the Antarctic. Paul gave an amazing presentation at TED about his adventures and encounters with bears, seals and other wildlife. Just wanted to share this video with you, because it brought tears to my eyes. You can see how passionate Paul is about his work and the health of our planet.

Thank you for the link Amit!

    I am glad that you liked to video! I found many of the TED videos very inspirational. After watching the videos of Salman Khan (v=nTFEUsudhfs), Sugata Mitra (v=dk60sYrU2RU), Dan Meyer (v=NWUFjb8w9Ps) and Sir Ken Robinson (v=r9LelXa3U_I), I realized what education should mean. Videos by Mick Ebeling (v=Sktdq5z1N-4) and Bart Weetjens (v=9IRv3TOjE1I) are great cocktails of invention and humanity. Daniel Pink’s videos (v=rrkrvAUbU9Y and v=u6XAPnuFjJc [Non-Ted version] ) on motivation are truly eye openers. There are so many great videos related to science and technology but the list is long and this is perhaps not the right forum to discuss them. But what I want to say is that if you like these videos then you can go to the channel, sort them by ‘most popular’ and view the ones related to your areas of interest.

    Thank you so very much for the caring of this great planet which is in deep trouble from global warming. The nations and individuals need to heed the signs that come every year.
