Photographer Jamey Stillings shares thoughts on how mankind must learn to coexist with nature to ensure survival of future generations through cleaner energy sources, in this week’s featured TED talk.

Stillings’ current project – Changing Perspectives – focuses on renewable energy developments with an aerial perspective. He photographed the site of the largest concentrated solar park in Californian desert.

Stillings goes through some of the most common issues and myths usually associated with large-scale renewable developments, such as wildlife displacement or death. He advocates for “solutions and consensus” on renewable energy in the US, rather than a polarised debate on the matter, which he argues leads to paralysis.
