Robert Swan: Let’s save the last pristine continent

Here is a great TED Talk we like to share. As he says in the video: “A survivor sees the problem, and does not go ‘whatever'”. A really good way to look at this!

2041 will be a pivotal year for our planet. That year will mark the end of a 50-year agreement to keep Antarctica, the Earth’s last pristine continent, free of exploitation. Explorer Robert Swan — the first person to walk both the North and South Poles — is on a mission to ensure that we extend that treaty. With passion and vigor, he pleads with us to choose the preservation of the Antarctic for our own survival.

Robert Swan has explored both poles, and wants to make sure that Antarctica, the world’s last great wilderness, is never exploited.
