Maria Fotopoulos Biography and Archive

Maria Fotopoulos is a Senior Writing Fellow for the Santa Barbara-based organization, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS |, where she writes about the population-sustainability connection. Her interest and concerns about overpopulation date back to the 70s growing up in a small Oklahoma town where the message of Zero Population Growth reached her – and resonated.

Fotopoulos also has written about greener rides and the green-ness of California’s Gov. Schwarzenegger, as well as the potential value in developing local currencies and in more community-based banking. Always looking for a good story to tell, she has explored the mystery of the Kombucha “mushroom,” discussed the dangers of Teflon and found the Hollywood connection to Greek Orthodoxy, among other diverse stories.

Her work has appeared in the El Paso Times, Houston Chronicle, Jackson Clarion Ledger, Oklahoman, Santa Barbara News-Press, Santa Monica Daily Press, Wall Street Journal and Whole Life Times.
