Everything you need to know about TEDxDeExtinction
Stewart Brand begins today’s TED Talk with an elegy for Martha of Cincinnati, who died in 1914. No, Martha is not a person. She was the very last passenger pigeon.
“Extinction is a different kind of death -- it’s bigger,” says Brand in this talk, given at TED2013. “This had been the most abundant bird in the world. They lived in North America for 6 million years -- suddenly it wasn’t here at all.”
