Video: Jared Diamond on Why Societies Collapse


Avoiding Collapse
Jared Diamond, a man of multiple talents (evolutionary biologist, physiologist, biogeographer, professor of geography and physiology at UCLA, non-fiction author), gave an interesting talk at TED about why societies collapse. Environmental factors play a big role in his checklist, and it should be a reminder to us that we must not only find solution, but actually apply them. According to Dr. Diamond, we're lucky that most of our problems are of our own making, because it means we can do something about them. Via TED. See also: Collapse by Jared Diamond
