TEDxObserver - Miguel Torres - Vintner, pioneer, climate change activist

The grapes of wrath -- wine in an age of climate changeHead of Spain's oldest family-owned winery, Miguel Torres was recently hailed by Time magazine as one of the most influential global figures trying to figure out what happens to wine in a world of rising temperatures. After watching Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth Miguel became convinced that he needed to do something to raise awareness in his industry of the dangers of a warming world. Now his winery experiments with growing grapes at different temperatures to see how grapes and wine might be affected by climate change. He plans that his company -- the closest you get to wine royalty in Spain - will become carbon neutral in five years. He said, "I want to do whatever I can, in the interests of my children and grandchildren. I at least want to be able to say we did whatever we could."About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
