- Twisted Thinking - Cause and Effect Reversed
- Last Friday, Ann Curry, on NBC Nightly News, reported
that drought-stricken Georgia's Lake Lanier, that provides water for five
million people, will not last more than 79 more days at current water consumption.
"What does Lake Lanier need?" she asked the reporter standing
by the lake. "Lots of rainabout four months of rain," the
- If Georgia stands in the cross-hairs of a water crisis
today at 9,363,000 people, what will be its fate be by 2050 when
its predicted population reaches 16,966,000 people?
- It's the Runaway Overpopulation
- What factor facing the United States stands immune from
public, political and religious discussion? Short answer: runaway overpopulation
as we add more than three million people to the USA annually!
- With signs pointing to horrific future consequences,
our presidential leaders, citizens and religious elite continue on a path
of population growth without responsibility, without limits and without
end. They continue in denial, refutation and negation.
- Let's see where that path leads us.
- Worldwatch Institute, September 13, 2007 reported:
- · Consumption
of energy and many other critical resources is consistently
breaking records, disrupting the climate and undermining life on the planet,
according to the latest WorldWatch Institute report, Vital Signs 2007-2008.
- The 44 trends tracked in Vital Signs illustrate the urgent
need to check consumption of energy and other resources that are contributing
to the climate crisis.
- According to Erik Assadourian, Vital Signs Project Director,
"The world is running out of time to head off catastrophic climate
change, and it is essential that Europe and the rest of the international
community bring pressure to bear on U.S. policy makers to address the crisis."
- This summer, the European Union became a showcase for
environmental devastation including tragic fires in Greece and the Canary
Islands, dramatic floods in England and heat waves across the Continent.
- With a global population of 6.7 billion and growing
by 77 million annually humanity degrades every ecosystem beyond its
capacity to sustain life:
- In 2006, the world used 3.9 billion tons of oil. World
oil consumption burns 84 million barrels daily. Fossil fuel usage
in 2005 produced 7.6 billion tons of carbon emissions, and atmospheric
concentrations of carbon dioxide reached 380 parts per million.
- More wood was removed from forests in 2005 than ever
- Steel production grew 10 percent to a record 1.24 billion
tons in 2006, while primary aluminum output increased to a record 33 million
- Meat production hit a record 276 million tons (43 kg
per person) in 2006.
- Meat consumption is one of several factors driving soybean
demand. Rapid South American expansion of soybean plantations could
displace 22 million hectares of tropical forest and savanna in the next
- The rise in global seafood consumption comes even as
many fish species become scarcer.
- The warming climate is undermining biodiversity by accelerating
habitat loss, altering the timing of animal migrations and plant flowerings,
and shifting some species towards the poles and to higher altitudes.
- The oceans have absorbed about half of the carbon dioxide
emitted by humans in the last 200 years. Climate change is altering
fish migration routes, pushing up sea levels, intensifying coastal erosion,
raising ocean acidity, and interfering with currents that move vital nutrients
upward from the deep sea.
- 2,500 plants and animals in the continental United States
suffer extinction every decade via habitat loss from human expansion.
- Despite a relatively calm hurricane season in the U.S.
in 2006, the world experienced more weather-related disasters than in any
of the previous three years. Nearly 100 million people were affected.
- "The only hope for reducing the world's carbon emissions
is for the U.S. to begin reducing its emissions and cooperating with other
nations immediately," said Assadourian.
- Earlier this year, Bush promised to decrease oil consumption
by 20 percent in the United States within ten years. "We'll
reduce oil consumption by use of hybrid cars, conservation and ethanol,"
- Believe it, or not; We don't have a U.S. Immigration
- He failed to mention that via endless, unrelenting immigration,
the U.S. expects to add 30 million people by 2017. Most Americans
fail to realize this nation will add 100 million people within 35 years.
While the U.S. Census Bureau tells us our population is now "only
302 million," Vanderbilt University is telling us that number is really
333 million today. Would our government lie to us? What does all of that
- It means "full speed ahead" just like
the Titanic. Everything we're doing proves to be window dressing,
cotton candy and pointless unless we deal with population stability.
- Population stability is an urgent need
- What should our presidential candidates, religious leaders
and average citizens be promoting?
- We must have a National Population Policy whereby
we balance our population to fit our carrying capacity so that every American
today and 100 years from now enjoys a quality of life and reasonable standard
of living while living in a sustainable and viable civilization.
- We must address a National Carrying Capacity Policy
whereby we define how many people can live in each state with enough water,
land and food.
- We need a National Environmental Impact Policy
whereby animals and plants maintain their habitat in order to co-exist
with humanity in a balance.
- We need a National Water Policy whereby our human
numbers remain in balance with available water supplies so a crisis like
Lake Lanier in Georgia can't occur.
- We must promote an International Population and Family
Planning Policy to help overloaded nations come to terms with and move
toward stable populations. This would prevent massive, unrelenting and
unending immigration toward viable countries.
- Why an international program?
- For example, Bangladesh suffers 144 million people in
a landmass less than the size of Iowa. They expect to double to 290
million people in 35 years! That's like shoving all but 10 million
of America's 300 million into Iowa! No wonder they flee their countries
by the millions and run to Europe and the United States!

- Danger, Will Robinson
- Once we add 100 million people to the USA, nothing will
save us from our consequences.
- Our quality of life, standard of living, freedom, fresh
air, open spaces, cities, wildlife and every aspect of our children's lives
will degraded as our numbers increase. This population crisis proves
the number one issue facing us in the 21st century, but our leaders deny,
hide from, pretend and run away from it like the plague.
- Unfortunately, if we don't quickly deal with growth policy;
- rampant immigration will deal with us- rather brutally.
