Part 1: Deadliest Birthrate Affecting All of Humanity: Africa

Part 1 of 6:  Africa’s exploding birthrates, water shortages, food scarcity, animal extinctions

As immigration, both legal and illegal, continues flooding into the United States of America—it also pours into Canada, Australia and Europe. Note that all Western countries stabilized their populations since 1970 by averaging 2.0 children or less per female.  

Unfortunately, the rest of the human race continued its fecundity rates at breakneck speed. The world population accelerated from 3.5 billion in 1965 to 7.4 billion in 2018. What took humans countless centuries to reach 3.5 billion—humans doubled their world population within 53 years. If nothing changes, humans expect to add another 3.1 billion by mid-century, give or take a decade—to reach 10.1 billion.

Unfortunately, as first world countries created stable and sustainable societies since 1970, their leaders chose unending immigration from overloaded developing countries.  For the United States, the late Senator Teddy Kennedy created the 1965 Immigration Reform Act that added 100 million people to America by October of 2006.  If continued, that same act expects to add another 100 million people within 32 years by 2050.  Much the same immigrant ingress occurs in Canada, Europe and Australia. Where do those immigrants originate?  Answer: the developing countries that adds 80 million, net gain, annually. (Source: United Nations population projections)

Unknown to most countries and people living on this planet, an accelerating birthrate in Africa threatens all Western civilizations in the 21st century. At 1.1 billion in 2018, Africa accelerates toward 2.1 billion by 2050 and 4 billion by the end of this century. (Source: “Africa’s Population Projections” by United Nations 2016)

As an example, the average Burundian woman births 6.3 children, double the international fertility rate. Burundians expect to jump from 10 million to 20 million in a few decades. Egypt, currently 85 million, expects to reach 105 million by 2030. Ethiopia, at 98 million, expects to double to 210 million by 2060. (Source: UN “Africa’s Population Projections”)

Ironically, Egypt imports most of its food to feed its current population in 2018. As the human race adds 1 billion more people, net gain, every 12 years, Africa expects to quadruple its population within 82 years. Africans grow so fast; they cannot water, feed, house, educate or sustain the expected 4 billion people about to land on that continent.

What does it mean? It means that every living creature featuring feathers, hooves, claws, fins or fur that lives in Africa will become food for the human mob. It means relentless extinction of rhinos, lions, gazelles, wildebeest, giraffes and elephants—just about any creature that breathes.

World leaders see the carnage, poverty, disease and futility of Africa in 2018, but fail to call for a world conference to discuss what’s coming and what can be done to change course.

Therefore, those burgeoning populations flood into first world countries with no end to the line.

Question: what will humans do once the planet faces another added three billion people by 2050—a scant 32 years from now?  They will need to be watered, fed, housed, warmed and sustained in a finite world with finite resources? If you think the flood of another 1,000,000 (million) refugees knocking on Europe’s door today spells disaster for the civilized West, what do you think any Western country faces in the next 82 years when Africa hits four billion desperate people?

Right now, America annually imports 1.1 million legal refugees from around the world. According to with research by Dr. Steven Camarota, the illegal alien flow jumped back to 500,000 illegal alien border crossers in 2014-2015.  In other words, the line never ends as Mexico remains on course to add another 20 million people by mid-century.

Canada, Europe and Australia follow suit with their own immigrant numbers measuring into the hundreds of thousands.

One look at Minneapolis, Minnesota shows 120,000 African Somalian legal refugees now overwhelming welfare services across that city.  Yet, Somalia at 11.1 million in 2017, expects to reach 13.1 million within three years by 2020. 

The country is rapidly expanding with almost 3% annual population growth and a high fertility rate of 6.26 children per woman, which is the 4th highest in the world.”  (Source: United Nations.)

Similar scenarios occur in Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and Italy as to immigrants’ onslaught.

Question to ask yourself and your kids:  what is the point of endless immigration from Somalia in 2018 when that country, along with the rest of Africa, cannot solve its own birth rates?  What’s the point of adding more of their people to Western countries to become like their countries? 

How do you think your kids will survive the onslaught? What are you doing to raise a national-international discussion on human overpopulation?  What kind of a civilization do you expect to bequeath your children?  Answer: if Western countries continue on the same path, everyone will become overpopulated countries where everyone suffers and no one may lead anything like “quality of life” or a decent standard of living. Not to mention a degrading environment!

None of us will escape the growing consequences of Africa’s population bomb.

Part 2: Second Deadliest Birthrate Affecting All of Humanity: India

Part 2 of 6: India expects to jump from 1.252 billion to 1.55 billion within 32 years. It adds 16 million, net gain, annually. Today, Indians flood into America, Canada and Europe with chain-migration and added birth rates. Their human misery index explodes off the charts. Let’s take a look at what ramifications Western countries face from immigration from India.


In 1960, India reached 500,000,000 (million) people. Today, India suffers every kind of social and environmental consequence known to humanity with its 1.252 billion people. Even more catastrophic, it adds 16 million more people, net gain, annually.


India’s major river, the Ganges, which I once rafted, flows into the ocean with the most polluted, toxic and contaminated waters known to humankind. It features trillions of gallons of untreated sewage, industrial waste, hundreds of chemicals and millions of pieces of plastics—that flow into the ocean 24/7. That watery, chemicalized conveyer belt creates a 20,000-square mile dead zone at the mouth of the Ganges. Once it hits the Indian Ocean, those contaminated waters spread all over the planet—poisoning marine life, avian life, reefs, the ocean floor and cause deadly acidification extensively around the planet.


Of note, the USA, China and India dump the most plastics into the world’s oceans. Latest estimates show 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic float above and flow under the surface around the world—killing millions of marine creatures annually. As per investigations by marine biologist Julia Whitty, published in OnEarth Magazine, 46,000 pieces of plastic trash float on every square mile of Earth’s oceans. In a word: sickening! Why? Because we’ve known this for 20 years, but no action to stop it by creating incentive-driven deposit-return laws internationally.


Within India, hundreds of millions of people lack a toilet. Therefore, they defecate-urinate on the land daily. In fact, the Indian Express reported, “Best experts tell us that 60.4 percent of Indians lack a toilet.” As you can imagine, the stench in the cities, the filth in the streets and the total contamination of soils and rivers by that many people injecting their waste upon the lands and waters 24/7—cannot be comprehended.


Thus, every day of the year, 1,000 Indian children under the age of 12 die of dysentery, diarrhea and other waterborne diseases die from drinking contaminated water. (Source:


Yet, as India’s population accelerates by 16 million net gain annually, they grow so fast, they cannot solve any of their problems. Disease and squalor top the “human misery index” beyond the concepts of the citizens from Western countries.


You can only imagine that India cannot support jobs, classrooms and housing for that many people added annually. Yet, not one word about population stabilization from India’s leaders. At one point, Indira Gandhi attempted to bring birth control to India when I visited in 1984, but she largely failed because of religious-cultural norms that overpowered reasoned thinking.


If you look at the beauty of the Taj Mahal, one of the most famous landmarks of India, a short trip to the river next to it shows millions of pieces of plastic clogging its waters. And, the water features endless chemical poisons leaving it unfit for human or animal use.


In the cities, air pollution poisons the lungs of everyone breathing that toxic air 24/7. You see everyone tapping into electrical wires illegally at every juncture. You see filth, trash, and smell stench everywhere. When you see the traffic, it’s a free-for-all that confounds and confuses the Western mind. The National Nutritional Monitoring Bureau estimates that only 15 percent of Indians receive adequate nourishment daily.


As can be imagined, because of adding that 16 million more people annually, India’s wilderness suffers encroachment via roads, housing, mining, lumbering and other development. Animal extinction rates soar in India. The Bengal Tiger and the Snow Leopard will not survive in the wilds within several decades. Elephants face an uncertain future. Birds of all kinds face extinction from loss of habitat. Fish and plants vanish as Indians invade and demolish habitat.

With all the realities facing the people of India, no one raises a finger to address their population predicament. Even in the face of so much human misery, their leaders live in “cognitive dissonance” also known as “intellectual denial of reality.”


Please realize this treatise covers only the tip of the iceberg of this human drama. At any time, we may witness horrific outbreaks of cholera and other diseases that will kill millions in Asia.


But what does it mean for all of us in the USA or other western countries like Canada, Europe and Australia?


To be frank, we face a global mess that will ultimately arrive on a big platter forced down our throats. Today, millions of Indians clamor for visas to move to the USA, Europe and Canada. The rich ones buy their way into America. Some Indians discovered how to gain loans to buy all the motels across America. They continue accelerated chain-migration with that niche.


As with 50,000 annual Diversity Visas, 14 million people apply annually to gain the “Golden Ticket” to America.

By 2050, a scant 32 years from now, India expects to out-populate China to reach 1.55 billion people. As it stands, they lack the ‘arable land’ to grow enough food. They clearly lack clean water as they dry up their ground water supplies.


If you think the refugee crisis facing Europe last year and continuing this year bodes badly---you haven’t seen anything yet.


When India starts facing hunger crises via lack of arable land, lack of rainfall, and growing ‘catastrophic climate destabilization’ with its 1.252 billion people—we’re all in trouble. In 2018, we witness a global disaster in the making.


No amount of immigration solves anything for Indians. No amount of international aid will help them. Why? Because they keep growing human numbers beyond any solutions.


As you read this series, yes, pretty sobering! In fact, pretty depressing! Because if you’re in your 30s or 40s, you and your children will see this international debacle on a stage unseen in human history. That’s why America, Australia, Europe and Canada must create an international discussion-debate on human population stabilization—before Mother Nature does it for us, rather brutally and without mercy.

Eleanor Roosevelt said it 50 years ago: “We must prevent human tragedy rather than run around trying to save ourselves after an event has already occurred. Unfortunately, history clearly shows that we arrive at catastrophe by failing to meet the situation, by failing to act when we should have acted. The opportunity passes us by and the next disaster is always more difficult and compounded than the last one.”

That’s why I am working to interview on “60 Minutes”; National Public Radio; Public Television and the New York Times and other top newspapers. Contact them and give my name: . George Stephanopoulos at ABC. Robert Siegel at NPR. Give my email contact:


Or, in Canada, Europe and Australia, work to promote your own leaders to top spots on television to expose what we all face. In Canada, Madeline Weld, Valerie Price and Tim Murray.

Part 3: Third Deadliest Birthrate Affecting All of Humanity: China

Part 3 of 6: China expects to jump from 1.35 billion to 1.5 billion by 2050. It faces horrific environmental consequences today. Ironically, even with 1 child per woman birth policy, China continues adding 8 million annually via “population momentum”.


As a naïve, youthful world bicycle traveler back in 1984, I toured through China when it opened up to international visitors. You can imagine my joy—fulfilling my teenage dream to walk on the Great Wall of China.


But what really impacted me: wall-to-wall people. Every piece of land bloomed with crops. Every nook and cranny filled with people. They jammed every city. They overflowed every sector of that ancient land. Their plight stunned me. Today, they drive down 50 lane freeways and breathe toxic air along with horrifically polluted rivers like the Yangtze. That one visit changed my life by changing my perceptions concerning the end result of too many people.


At the time, Dr. Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb, described the horrific consequences of overpopulation. However, the mainstream media degraded him and his figures. Today, his figures play out on a world scale even more terrifying than when he wrote the book: 10 million children die of starvation annually. Another 8 million adults die of poverty and lack of food, annually. (Source: United Nations) Another 1.5-2.0 billion cannot secure clean drinking water. Billions live in what scientists call “The Human Misery Index”. Hopeless, helpless and no way to change it!


Unfortunately, all of Ehrlich’s detractors never visited India or China. Their worldviews stemmed from their limited experiences in America, Canada or Europe. They echoed the famed economist Julian Simon’s boasts that this planet housed enough resources for 10,000 years of unlimited numbers of humans. Dr. Albert Bartlett, University of Colorado, named him an “innumerate” or mathematically illiterate.


Later, economist Kenneth Boulding, University of Colorado, stated, “Anyone who thinks we can continue population expansion is either an economist or a madman.”


All the while, humans add another 80 million, net gain, of themselves to this planet, annually. Even with one child per woman birthrates in China for over 35 years, because of “population momentum” (so many women birthing one child), China adds 8,000,000 (million) annually.


While China continues its human numbers explosion, it degrades its quality of life and standard of living to levels beyond our understanding. China forges toward endless concrete jungles for cities, vanishing wilderness that creates severe animal extinction rates and a complete breakdown of ecology as to air, water and soil.


It constructs one new coal-fired electrical plant every week of the year. It adds 27,000,000 (million) new cars, net gain, annually according to an NBC Nightly News report with Lester Holt. It offers 50 lanes one way of traffic. It suffers under toxic air pollution so severe that lung cancer rates explode in big cities like Shanghai and Beijing.


While the world burns 94 million barrels of oil 24/7 in 2018, experts predict that China expects to burn 98 million barrels of oil annually by 2030—a scant 12 years from now. (Source: The Long Emergency by James Howard Kunstler) While everyone wants to drop the ‘carbon footprint’ from fossil fuel exhaust, all the efforts of equate to a total waste of time. Meanwhile, all of humanity faces “catastrophic climate destabilization” such as what happened in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Additionally, Katrina, Sandy, Harvey and Haiyan in the Philippines. It’s only going to worsen as we destabilize Earth’s biosphere with our carbon emissions.


All that carbon exhaust suffocates the oceans as they “ingest” all that waste dumped into our biosphere. Results vary from “acidified” oceans where the normal PH balance no longer exists. Thus, phyto-planktons that create 80 percent of our oxygen supply appear face grave danger. Worldwide reefs die out at an ever-increasing rate of speed.


China’s water usage, energy usage, food consumption and resource depletion reaches unimaginable stratospheric levels as they mechanize everything in order to grow into the wealth of Western countries. But before the middle of this century, China, along with all fossil fuel driven civilizations, must contend with the end of oil:

"The cheap oil age created an artificial bubble of plentitude for a period not much longer than a human I hazard to assert that as oil ceases to be cheap and the world reserves move toward depletion, we will be left with an enormous population...that the ecology of the earth will not support. The journey back toward non-oil population homeostasis will not be pretty. We will discover the hard way that population hyper growth was simply a side-effect of the oil age. It was a condition, not a problem with a solution. That is what happened and we are stuck with it." James Howard Kunstler, The Long Emergency

If the energy crisis doesn’t impact China, water shortages most certainly will:

By 2020 the water issue affects 30-40% of the world

"It's a huge problem that the electricity sector does not even realize how much water they actually consume. And together with the fact that we do not have unlimited water resources, it could lead to a serious crisis if nobody acts on it soon," says Professor Benjamin, Sovacool from Aarhus University.

When you include the agricultural sector with vanishing ground water, a “Perfect Storm” builds throughout China and India.

As to China’s rivers, they run in raw sewage, hundreds if not thousands of chemicals and more toxic waste than anyone comprehends. The Yangtze River dumps trillions of gallons of lethal waste into the oceans 24/7. It features an astounding 20,000 square mile ‘dead zone’ at its mouth. That means most vertebrate marine creatures cannot live within those toxic waters. Dozens of such poisoned rivers flow into the ocean from China. Nonetheless, those toxic waters flow around the world to poison marine habitats everywhere.


You cannot comprehend China’s ordeal unless you visited that ancient civilization. It’s out of control of itself. I’m only touching the surface of China’s predicament. As it continues adding eight million people, net gain, annually, every problem it faces can only worsen by a factor of 8,000,000—to the point of “NO” solutions and total breakdown.


But the Chinese show exceptional intelligence in escaping to first world countries. Today, Chinese immigrants take over Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. They buy land and buildings. Chinese dictate to the Canadians as they take over schools and local governments. They chain-migrate their families into Canada. Entire cities on America’s West Coast house only Chinese, speak only Chinese and hold allegiance only to China. They also continue massive chain-migration into America. Chinese money buys farmlands in Asia and in South America. China’s people compete to move to Canada, Australia, Europe and America. They even feature “birth tourism” websites to secure “American citizenship” by their women birthing a child on American soil.


As this enormous flood of humanity adds one billion every 12 years and a total of three billion, (3,000,000,000) added by mid-century to rise from 7.4 billion in 2018 to 10.1 billion in 2050—everyone and all of us, and every Western nation faces horrific environmental consequences, quality of life degradation and immigration consequences on a scale unknown in all of our history as a species.

Part 4: Recipient Nations of Birthrate Overload: America, Canada, Europe, Australia

Part 4 of 6: Recipient nations of population overload: United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. No one escapes this human juggernaut. Those added three billion people onto this planet within the next 32 years will invade first world countries. Let’s take a look at what that means for the West.

How did the first three parts of this series affect you? Did you understand the enormity of what humanity faces in the next 32 years? How about the rest of the plant and animal life on this planet? What about your children? What about the oceans? What about quality of life?

Are you astounded that the mainstream media suppresses this demographic issue at all costs? Why? Answer: they lack intellectual comprehension that they will not escape its grip on them or their children. Virtually most leaders of most religions stand in denial of this demographic juggernaut bearing down on humanity.

Yes, the media reports every consequence of overpopulation as to worldwide hunger, water shortages, species extinctions, wars for resources and catastrophic climate destabilization. But no one, not one world leader addresses or attempts to speak up on what we face.

If I could fulfill my own quest, I would see to it that every human being watch this short video by my friend Roy Beck:

In a five minute, astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation.  Take five minutes to see for yourself:

As you can see, no one will escape the ramifications of the next added 3,000,000,000 (billion) people to this globe. No one will escape the implications of adding 138,000,000 (million) more people to America within 32 years. You may expect those consequences to invade your state, your community and your family.

Remember this: developing countries’ citizens will not stop their birth rates significantly enough to stop overloading their countries. Therefore, they will contribute to the 3.0 billion added, hungry and desperate refugees looking for a country to land.

In 2018, the United Nations estimates that 60,000,000 (million) refugees lack water, food, energy and homes, and look toward first world countries to migrate. Their numbers will grow to 150,000,000 to as high as 200,000,000 (million) refugees by 2050—a scant 32 years from now.

What Western Countries Face with Refugee Armada

Canada houses 36,000,000 (million) people in 2018. Because of mass immigration, they expect 41.1 million by 2050. To give you an idea of Canada’s dilemma, let’s look at the numbers. We know Canada as a “big” little country. That means it’s “big” in landmass but lacks ample arable land to grow crops. While its citizens chose 2.0 birth rates since 1970, its leaders forced massive immigration onto Canada. It faces food shortages, environmental breakdown, accelerating carbon footprint damage, species extinctions and lowered quality of life.

Europe houses 742.5 million people in 2018. It encompasses 3.9 million square miles. Not much bigger than the United States at 3.1 million square miles. The United Kingdom houses 65.6 million people in a landmass less than the size of the State of Oregon. Oregon features 4.0 million people. Germany at 82 million holds less land than the State of New Mexico. That state holds 1.8 million. The tiny country of France holds 66 million people. While Europe faces tremendous overcrowding today, it faces mass immigration overrunning every border of all of its countries from Middle Eastern and African population overload.

Australia holds 24 million in 2018, but expects to reach 38 to 48 million by mid-century via mass immigration. Over 90 percent of Australia features desert. It lacks water and arable land, but powerful developer interests force immigration onto that desert continent as if tomorrow never arrives. Melbourne and Sydney strangle themselves with immigrants.

In contrast, the USA holds 329 million in a landmass at 3.1 million square miles, but as you saw from the immigration invasion, America expects 438 million by 2050 and 625 million at the end of this century. Watch this video to see what it looks like:

Immigration by the numbers—off the chart by Roy Beck

This 10-minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words, “Mind boggling!”

As you can imagine, immigration solves nothing. It stalls the inevitable for every Western country: ultimate collapse from overloading carrying capacity of every receiving country.

In a final note as to the rest of the world adding that 3,000,000,000 new humans to the planet by 2050---it’s not JUST Africa, India and China.

Mexico in 2018 cannot feed, work or house its people. It features horrific sewage systems exhausting into the ocean. It grows from 114 million to as high as 135 million by 2050. All of South America continues from 426 million to 535 million by 2050. They cut and burn their Amazon rainforests at 1.5 acres every second.

Here’s a kicker: Bangladesh features an area less than the size of the U.S. State of Iowa, but houses 163 million people. The United Nations projects Bangladesh will reach 201 million people by 2050. (Source for population figures: United Nations Population Projections)

Can enough activists in Western countries be created out of a series like this to create a movement to stop mass immigration into Western countries? Goal: Western countries need a national discussion-debate on the future of their civilizations. It’s not going to happen by itself. That discussion-debate begins with you.

Part 5: Sobering Realities for Everyone on Planet Earth in the 21st Century

Part 5 of 6: Quotations from the greatest minds on the topic of human overpopulation.

In the final analysis, this series could continue into some very heavy, if not sobering material, but for now, it gives Americans and all Western country readers an idea of what each civilization faces and what we must do to change course. These final quotes give you an idea of our predicament from some of the finest minds in the world.

Nobel Laureate Dr. Henry W. Kendall said, “If we don’t halt population growth with justice and compassion, it will be done for us by nature, brutally and without pity ­ and will leave a ravaged world.”

"The raging monster upon the land is population growth. In its presence, sustainability is but a fragile theoretical construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties of nations are not due to people, but to poor ideology and land-use management is sophistic.” Harvard scholar and biologist E.O. Wilson

Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.” Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded Gates

"Somehow, we have come to think the whole purpose of the economy is to grow, yet growth is not a goal or purpose. The pursuit of endless growth is suicidal." David Suzuki

"Growth for the sake of yet more growth is a bankrupt and eventually lethal idea. CASSE is the David fighting the Goliath of endless expansion, and we know how that one turned out." ~ David Orr

The green revolution was instigated as a result of the efforts of Norman Borlaug, who, while accepting the Nobel peace prize in 1970, said: "The green revolution has won a temporary success in man's war against hunger and deprivation; it has given man a breathing space. If fully implemented, the revolution can provide sufficient food for sustenance during the next three decades. But the frightening power of human reproduction must also be curbed; otherwise the success of the green revolution will be ephemeral only."

"The cheap oil age created an artificial bubble of plentitude for a period not much longer than a human I hazard to assert that as oil ceases to be cheap and the world reserves move toward depletion, we will be left with an enormous population...that the ecology of the earth will not support. The journey back toward non-oil population homeostasis will not be pretty. We will discover the hard way that population hyper growth was simply a side-effect of the oil age. It was a condition, not a problem with a solution. That is what happened and we are stuck with it." James Howard Kunstler, The Long Emergency

We must alert and organize the world's people to pressure world leaders to take specific steps to solve the two root causes of our environmental crises ­ exploding population growth and wasteful consumption of irreplaceable resources. Over- consumption and overpopulation underlie every environmental problem we face today.” Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Oceanographer

Upwards of one hundred species.. mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety… are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence… thanks to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace. I hope it will not be too long before the technologies that support our population explosion begin to be perceived as no less hazardous to the future of life on this planet than the endless production of radioactive wastes.” Daniel Quinn

We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless pit... and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imagine how the world could survive another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing anything about it. It's a problem our children will have to solve, or their children.” Daniel Quinn

As we go from this happy hydrocarbon bubble we have reached now to a renewable energy resource economy, which we do this century, will the “civil” part of civilization survive? As we both know there is no way that alternative energy sources can supply the amount of per capita energy we enjoy now, much less for the 9 billion expected by 2050. And energy is what keeps this game going. We are involved in a Faustian bargain—selling our economic souls for the luxurious life of the moment, but sooner or later the price has to be paid.” Walter Youngquist, energy

The U.S. will set a record in the rate of rise—and fall of an empire. Between wide open borders and fall of the dollar and growing population against a declining resource base, the US will be defeated from within. Mobs will rule the streets in the nation that is now the third largest in the world and unable to support its population except by taking resources from other countries.” Arnold Toynbee, historian

A simple look at the upward path of global greenhouse emissions indicates we will continue to squeeze the trigger on the gun we have put to our own head.” Eugene Linden, The Winds of Change: Climate, Weather and the Destruction of Civilization

The ship is already starting to spin out of control. We may soon lose all chance of grabbing the wheel. Humanity faces a genuinely new situation. It is not an environmental crisis in the accepted sense. It is a crisis for the entire life-support system for our civilization and our species.” Fred Pearce, The Last Generation: How Nature Will take Her Revenge for Climate Change

At this point, it’s almost certainly too late to manage a transition to sustainability on a global or national scale, even if the political will to attempt it existed, which it clearly does not. Our civilization is in the early stages of the same curve of decline and fall as so many others have followed before it. What likely lies in wait for us is a long, uneven decline into a new Dark Age from which, centuries from now, the civilizations of the future will gradually emerge.”

Imagine we live on a planet. Not our cozy, taken for granted planet, but a planet, a real one, with melting poles and dying forests and a heaving, corrosive sea, raked by winds, strafed by storms, scorched by heat. And inhospitable place. It needs a new name, Eaarth.” Bill McKibben, Eaarth: Making a life on a Tough New Planet

If present growth trends in population, industrialization, pollution, food production and resource depletion continue unchanged, the limits to growth will be reached sometime in the next 100 years.” The Club of Rome 1972

The power of population is so superior to the power of earth to produce subsistence to humanity that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race.” Thomas Malthus 1798

Can you think of any problem in any area of human endeavor on any scale, from microscopic to global, whose long-term solution is in any demonstrable way aided, assisted, or advanced by further increases of population, locally, nationally, or globally.” Dr. Albert Bartlett

All causes are lost causes without limiting human population,” Dr. Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University

"The stresses caused by population growth cannot be solved by international migration. They must be confronted by and within each individual nation. Fundamental to the concept of national rights and responsibilities is the duty of each nation to match its population with its political, social, and environmental resources, in both the short and the long term. No nation should exceed what the biologists call its 'carrying capacity.’” Dr. John Tanton,


Part 6: Solutions at the National and International Arenas

Part 6 of 6: Solutions

With any kind of understanding of the horrific numbers presented in this treatise, as well as an understanding of the final result of exponential growth of the human race---it’s pretty easy to throw up your hands in total exasperation and allow the “Darwin Solution” for population stabilization. At that point, Mother Nature shows no favorites, no mercy, no kindness, no anything nice other than brutal and miserable destruction of all life on Earth. That will surely arrive at some future date if humanity fails to take rational, logical and decisive action.

We need a national conference in each Western country and/or all countries to address the direction their headed.  Each nation needs to address its own carrying capacity, water issues, arable land, energy, food production and birth control.   Then, we need those countries to elect a representative to attend an international human race conference.  Ultimately, the only thing that will save humanity is 1 child per woman mandate throughout the world.    And, that may not even solve it at this point.
