- On Earth Day 2011, not too many people get it that "human
overpopulation" tops the list of America's greatest predicaments in
the 21st century. Not one single talking head in the major media will
touch the subject. That includes Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, Brian Williams,
Diane Sawyer, David Muir, Charlie Rose, Glenn Beck, Matt Lauer, Bill Moyers,
Sean Hannity, Wolf Blitzer, Anne Thompson, Harry Smith, Meredith Vieira,
Anne Curry and David Gregory. National Public Radio sprints away from
the issue like it's being chased by the Tasmanian Devil.
- Journalists like Thomas Friedman, Eugene Robinson, George
Will, E.J. Dionne, Kathleen Parker and Anne Applebaum refuse to write about
America's overpopulation predicament.
- In 2010, America reached 312 million. America grows 8,100
people net gain per day and over 3.1 million added annually-on our way
to adding 100 million people by 2035 and 138 million by 2050. Those projections
will manifest in America as 438 million within 40 years. Further projections
show us doubling US population to 600 million by 2075 give or take a few
years. (Sources: PEW report, Fogel/Martin "US Population Projections,
US Census Bureau)
- Nevertheless, American media pundits report on the symptoms
of human overpopulation such as oil spills, climate destabilization, species
extinction, the Great Pacific Garbage patch, gridlocked traffic, toxic
air pollution, chemical spills, gas prices and the like-but they will not
mention overpopulation. It remains the last sacred taboo of modern America.
- While America's leaders and media diddle-daddle and dunk
their heads into their morning coffee, our planet Earth staggers at the
enormity of the human herd poisoning the oceans, toxifying the biosphere,
mass murdering tens of thousands of species, laying waste to the ocean
fisheries, injecting 80,000 chemicals into the land and clearing millions
of acres of land for human habitation.
- A little known Michigan country physician, Dr. John Tanton
spearheaded the modern day population issue to the front of America's consciousness.
He and his wife Marylou Tanton spearheaded www.TheSocicalContract.com
in order to educate Americans as the peril of mass immigration causing
overpopulation in America.
- Yet he faces the same challenges as Galileo when the
pope crushed any idea that might be based on science. The pope's power
remained absolute, but today, the fact that the Earth revolves around the
sun is self-evident. Tanton's charge that mass immigration causing overpopulation
is self-evident. But the pope-like media ignores it at all costs. Instead,
religious organizations and talking heads rain down attacks on Tanton just
like the pope did to Galileo.
- "Dr. John Tanton deserves a Nobel Prize for the
stupendous work that he has done to try to arrest the environmental ruin
that has befallen America from runaway immigration-driven population growth,"
said Canadian environmentalist Tim Murray. "He is the Johnny Appleseed
of the sustainability movement, planting organizational seeds everywhere
to grow a network of vehicles through which people of similar aspirations
- "His life should be an inspiration to everyone,
including those of us who face similar challenges outside of the United
States. To be named by the Southern Poverty Law Centre as a "Puppeteer
of hate" is a badge of honor and a bench mark of environmental service
equivalent to a knighthood. If you haven't made the SPLC list of "nativists"
and haters, you haven't yet fulfilled your potential. So let that be your
goal. Keep pushing until you are smeared, then you know you have arrived.
You have touched a nerve, and have hit them where it hurts. You have spoken
the truth. A revolutionary act in a deceitful age!
- "The real puppeteers of hate are found on Wall Street.
They have tamed and manipulated the environmental movement by funding it,
even to the point of gaining representation on the boards of directors
of environmental NGOs. Big Green is now Big Business, customizing their
agenda to secure their donor base rather than challenging the corporate
bottom line, which requires a continual and massive infusion of cheap labor
to the detriment of the vanishing middle class and the natural environment.
- "The SPLC and their clones have served the vital
purpose of dressing up this mercenary project as a quest for tolerance
and diversity, while silencing its critics by a McCarthyist campaign of
smear and innuendo. In so doing, they have demonstrated a hate for what
America once stood for: Intellectual diversity and freedom of expression,
a heritage as precious as the land itself, which they would see despoiled
by growth in the service of profit.
- "Equally culpable are the editors, journalists and
broadcasters who accept their credentials as arbiters of "hate"
uncritically---- the graduates of the "One Party Classroom" which
David Horowitz, Roger Kimball and Alan Bloom have variously described.
Ironically then, the corporate agenda has been cloaked by a social justice
agenda born by four decades of "cultural Marxism" in the colleges,
universities and journalism schools. Mass immigration, then, can be seen
as a right wing project that enjoys left wing collusion, with middle class
academics, "The Tenured Radicals", fulfilling the role of Wall
Street's useful idiots. Gone is the "P" in the "IPAT"
equation--- the foundational formula of the environmental movement-- where
"P" (the population level) was perceived as an essential variable
in environmental degradation."
- While the pundits and leaders maintain their "pope-like"
power, the planet continues to fight back against the human onslaught.
And, in the end, the planet will win, hands down. It will take its revenge
on humanity via the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Famine, war, pestilence
and disease will take their toll. As oil runs out, humans will not possess
the gasoline to power the tractors to plant and harvest the food that will
not be available to feed 10 billion humans on an ecologically devastated
