January 7, 2013 • Family Planning, Daily Email Recap

Alexandra Paul gave the following presentation on the population issue at TEDx Topanga in early November. Alexandra has long been upset that out of the thousands of TED Talks to date, nary a one deals directly with human population. So, she fixed that problem. Please click through if you have the time.

During her activist career, Alexandra has written and produced JAMPACKED, an educational film broadcast on PBS about the human overpopulation crisis, which has won several environmental awards. She has also personally spoken, classroom-by-classroom, to over six thousand Los Angeles teenagers on the issue of human overpopulation. She has been honored by the United Nations for work on human overpopulation; been awarded the Green Cross Award by Mikael Gorbachev’s Global Green for Leadership on the Environment; and was named Activist of the Year in 2005 from the ACLU of Southern California.
