How our politics have created the anti-science movement

Victor is the first person to ever explore the deepest points in all five of the world’s oceans. This is truly groundbreaking—more people have walked on the surface of the moon than have been to the bottom of even a single ocean. Victor’s incredible talks reveal the challenges of designing and building the most advanced deep-diving submersible in history and share never-before-seen images from the ocean floor. He shares the complications and victories of diving to the deepest parts of the world, and what we can all learn from the 95% of our oceans that have yet to be explored. In this clip, Victor talks about politics and the impact of the current political climate on science–and the anti-science movement.
