Environment

I walk the Earth: John Francis on TED.com

For almost three decades, John Francis has been a planetwalker, traveling the globe by foot and sail with a message of environmental respect and responsibility (for 10 of those years, without speaking). A funny, thoughtful talk with occasional banjo. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 19:24.)
