TED Talk: Paul Gilding — The Earth is Full

March 9, 2012 • Daily Email Recap

Thanks to Stephanie Tholand for sending me this TED Talk by Paul Gilding. The speech, which runs about 16 minutes, is focused on questions like: Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that’s equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful. The video has been seen over 250,000 times and the comment section is also bustling.
