New TED Video: TED: Antonio Donato Nobre: The magic of the Amazon: A river that flows invisibly all around us – Antonio Donato Nobre (2010)

The Amazon River is like a heart, pumping water from the seas through it, and up into the atmosphere through 600 billion trees, which act like lungs. Clouds form, rain falls and the forest thrives. In a lyrical talk, Antonio Donato Nobre talks us through the interconnected systems of this region, and how they provide environmental services to the entire world. A parable for the extraordinary symphony that is nature.
