TED Tuesday: From redwoods to north pole November 3, 2009

Filed under: biology,ecology,forest,nature,TED — Radiance @ 9:00 AM

Lewis Pugh talks about his record-breaking swim across the North Pole. He braved the icy waters (in a Speedo) to highlight the melting icecap. Watch for astonishing footage — and some blunt commentary on the realities of supercold-water swims.
