Lately I’ve been watching TED Talks. A topic that’s especially interesting to me is the environment because I’m always interested in new inventions and ideas to help the planet, as well as explanations of why and how we created the problems we are facing right now.
This is my personal collection that I will continually add to. I post the ones that are interesting to me or have opened my eyes in a certain area. Occasionally I might disagree with some of the talks but am still amazed by the idea, which is why they end up here.
The videos are in the order of when they’ve been released by TED.
I hope you enjoy!
