David Thoreson TEDx Vail Talk- Watch Now!

Wow, this is a very nice piece to be able to post on my blog. I am very happy to have you watch my 9-minute TED Talk from the beautiful Vilar Center for the Performing Arts in Beaver Creek, CO. I was one of 9 speakers (I kicked of the event!!) in the 5th year event as part of the TEDx Vail Conference.
How does a small town Iowa boy find his pathway to the sea and polar regions of the planet? Well…  please watch if you are so inclined and share with as many folks as you wish. Thank you for your interest in my work and the very important issue of climate change. Cheers all, David

TEDx Vail Presentation

Wow, what a great experience in Vail/Beaver Creek with all the other presenters and our terrific hosts. Thank you so much to the never-resting Kat Haber and her side-kick Corinne Hara. I started out the weekend experience with a nice presentation at the Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon. Thank you. Very fun evening.

Then events shifted to the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek for the main TED presentations on Friday (Jan. 9th) afternoon and night. This was an amazing time and there was a big buzz!!
Nine speakers, folk dancing, classic fun music, piped in TED videos. Spectacular! I kicked off the event as the first speaker and told my story, my big idea, the discovery of rapid climate change while sailing the Arctic's Northwest Passage.

I am going to add to this blog with more personalities and ideas from others and many big thank yous. Keep checking in, more to come...
