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)

  1. Ok. . .why rationalize ‘extinction’ away? Is it an excuse to say oh, it’s happened before, it’s nothing. . ..all the while covering for the idiots actions who have caused the animals and oceans dying. . .oh by the way, in the mean time they act like good guys supporting media presentations of helping to save the whales from being hunted. Then again you got the same idiots making a dime on imprisoning the whales, dolphins and bulagu’s of the ocean behind glass aquariums . . .like a side show. I mean really why deny that it is coexit, chemtrails, aliens, dumping in the ocean and a government sponsored program. . .of dumping tons of iron in the ocean to grow toxic weeds. . .but let’s support BP Oil, Exxon and the list that goes on and on and on. . .while you actually ‘support’ and prop the ‘it’ up. But don’t worry about extinction you tell the monkeys . . it all came from dinasours. . .Ted you’re a hoax. . .and don’t care what happens . .perhaps you’ll be the next one of those in denial . . .’list’
