oday's TED Talk Mammoths resurrected, geoengineering and other thoughts from futurist Stewart Brand

January 5, 2018View for printing

"The story we're told is that we're the next meteor," Brand says, but "things are capable of getting better."

Stewart Brand is a futurist, counterculturist and visionary with a very wide-ranging mind. In conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Brand discusses ... just about everything: human nature, bringing back the wooly mammoth, geoengineering, rewilding and science as organized skepticism -- plus the story of an acid trip on a San Francisco rooftop in the '60s that sparked a perspective-shifting idea.
