TED playlists are collections of talks around a topic, built specially for you in a thoughtful sequence to illuminate ideas in context. This weekend, two new playlists are available: Animals that amaze and The end of oil?

Animals that amaze
At TED there’s a certain species of speaker who is absolutely devoted to all kinds of weird beasts and bugs. We call these creatures “obsessive speciologists.” Watch this playlist to see them in action, talking about everything from apes that write to octopi that disappear. See animals that amaze »

The end of oil?
Everybody wants to know: Can we find a renewable energy source and wean ourselves off of oil? Visionaries try to answer the question by offering up solutions like kite turbines and new takes on nuclear fusion. Hear from Bill Gates, Justin Hall-Tipping, 14-year-old nuclear reactor builder Taylor Wilson, and many more. Watch talks from The end of oil? »
