Curt Stager is an ecologist, paleoclimatologist, and science journalist with a Ph.D. in biology and geology from Duke University (1985). He has published over three dozen peer-reviewed articles in major journals including Science and Quaternary Research, and has written extensively for general audiences in periodicals such as National Geographic, Fast Company, and Adirondack Life. Since 1990, he has also researched and co-hosted Natural Selections, a weekly science program on North Country Public Radio that is syndicated internationally, and has toured widely to offer presentations on his research to audiences ranging, as one colleague put it, "from middle-schoolers to formal scholars." In 2013, he was named the New York State Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation.
Curt Stager gives an insightful speech on the next 100,000 years of life on Earth. He talks about the environmental changes past and present and the effects mankind has had and will have on the future of the earth.
This talk was presented at TEDxPerth prior to 2012, while it was under the direction of a different creative team led by Tim Kenworthy (now Useful Inc.).
