  • Mar 27 2011: Dear Dr. Rosling,
    I have enjoyed all your talks on TED.
    The magic washing machine was a very creative presentation. I really admire the "art" in the way you explain science. I am from India an I am doing a PhD in biofuels in Australia. Some of the concepts you explained in this presentation such as the use of energy all over the world are very difficult to explain. But you make it really simple to understand for everyone. The crux of this story lies in the gross inequality that we have failed to acknowledge. Not just the West but also the wealthy East.
    The attitude towards poverty and implementation of human rights is apathetic at least in my home country. People have been desensitized.
    So thank you for revisiting it for us.
