Hans Rosling is a very smart man who has a lot to say. Fortunately, he’s entertaining to listen to. Given his age and his profession, he is a true scientist. In his talks and lectures, he presents quite a lot of food for thought.
He has certain ethical commitments that I don’t agree with (he’s a big fan of population controls and contraception as well as curbing greenhouse gasses/fossil fuel use), but he presents the information in a manner that allows one to pick apart the data and make their own analyses.
Today’s Suggestion is this small collection of short videos presented by Rosling. Consider it a late thanksgiving.
