Part 2 & 3: America’s Degraded Future – Anachronistic Thinking …

How can

America entertain, feed, water, house and warm another 100 million people added by 2035—a scant 25 years from now? Answer: it can’t and it won’t!

When Einstein’s quote hits home, it allows you to step out of third world and 20th century thinking by advancing toward a 21st century paradigm shift. Once you connect the dots, you will not be able to go back to old thinking or ancient solutions. Why? Because they guarantee failure!

Therefore, such terms as ‘sustainable growth’ and ‘economic growth’ prove oxymorons that bring our “Population Katrina” ashore much faster. If we continue on our current disastrous path, our country will reach

China’s one billion by the end of this century, or within the lifetime of your grandchildren. Have you ever asked yourself why there is no Chinese Dream or why no one wants to emigrate to

China or why millions of Chinese risk life and limb to reach

America and

Canada? Why do Indians rush to our shores but no one rushes to

India? What about

Bangladesh with 157 million people in a landmass the size of

Ohio? Would you like to move to that hellhole? In other words, how would you like to live in

California when it doubles from 38 million to 76 million? The prevailing question will be, “Hey buddy, do you have a drink of water you can spare me?”

One way or the other, if we maintain this unrestricted immigration path, we will manifest what immigrants from the third world flee. Would you call

China,

India,

Japan or

Bangladesh racists, xenophobic or other names because they don’t allow immigration? Why don’t they? Too many people already!

“The modern plague of overpopulation is solvable by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not the sufficient knowledge of the solution, but the universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem for billions of people who are its victims.” Dr. Martin Luther King

Think what you will of King, but he hit target with his speech when he received the Human Rights Award in 1966.

“Each person in the

USA has an impact on the environment equal to as low as 10 and as high as 33 in a third world nation. Therefore, the

US population as 295 million is equal in many ways to a minimum of 2.9 billion people in environmental impact.”

National

Academy of Sciences

If you can’t or won’t see that impending reality, you imitate the ones looking out to sea in

New Orleans in 2005 and you hoped the winds would die down or Katrina would change course. I am here to tell you that this population storm will not change course. We must change direction if we are to save ourselves.

“Sustainable growth is a self-contradictory concept beloved by those who want to continue the same old stands—growth as a solution to all problems—very few people grasp the simple fact—demographic or economic growth is unsustainable.” Lindsey Grant, author of TOO MANY PEOPLE

“Climate change will have a devastating effect on the availability of water in the

Western United States. Even as best-case scenario, it forecasts a virtual train wreck, with supplies falling far short of the projected future demands for water by cities, farms and wildlife.” Andrew Bridges, Science Writer for AP

You may argue Malthus’ theme all you want, but the facts demand your attention that we don’t have enough water to keep growing in the West.

Arizona’s aquifers suffer horrific drainage and it’s so dry you can’t spit.

California offers bottled water because tap water is unsafe and it is fast becoming as expensive as gasoline. Any fool can see it coming, but most governors refuse to look at or deal with the reality of limits. It is Hurricane Katrina-like thinking, i.e., maybe if we ignore it—IT will go away.

“If we don’t persuade Congress to lower immigration to traditional levels of 175,000 per year, we’ll condemn Americans to lives of increasing sprawl, congestion and economic failure.” Roy Beck, author of “IMMIGRATION BY THE NUMBERS” 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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPjzfGChGlE&feature=player_embedded

I know and respect Roy Beck to the highest degree. I urge every American to join www.NumbersUSA.org and become a weekly faxer of prewritten letters. What can you argue about his quote? Absolutely nothing! These people have connected the dots and we must join them for the future of our country, our children and the world.

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

Colorado

University

Go ahead, name one! If you do come up with one, make your point with reason knowing that 6.8 billion humans already wreak havoc already and over 18 million deaths from starvation annually already occur. I’d welcome your email giving me a good reason for more population growth after you’ve read this two part series. In the meantime, I know Dr. Bartlett equals Einstein’s intellect.

Can the

USA sustain an added 100 million people and more? What do you think?

“Imagine a country which employs the principles of personal responsibility, freedom and accountability for future generations. Everything you do-counts! If you do nothing, that counts likewise. When you read sobering information, do you want to give up or fall apart? Or, do you want to engage like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams, Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Martin Luther King, Oprah, Barbara Jordan, John Muir and other Americans. You represent the Jefferson’s, Oprah’s and Dr. King’s of the 21st century. Consider it your honor and privilege to become a part of the solutions. Engage the present to change the future! Become an agent of the change you wish to see.”

Part 3:

America’s degraded future—Overfilling The Glass

by Frosty Wooldridge

Part 3: Overfilling the glass to make it spill

This continuing series expects to educate Americans as to the accelerating ramifications brought upon our civilization by adding 100 million people in the next 25 years and 300 million within 70 years. It’s interesting how many emails I receive that ‘deny’ and ‘defend’ unlimited human population growth, and utterly disregard the facts, figures and realities exposed by this series. It’s like they cannot or will not extend their heads “out” of their outmoded and unworkable paradigms.

Much like the Pope in 1600 when he arrested Galileo for stating that the Earth revolved around the sun and not the other way around. It’s difficult if not impossible for many to change their knowledge base for fear of something they dare not address, i.e., the Pope as God’s authority on Earth, or “How can anyone prove the Pope wrong?” Well, for the record, the Pope proved wrong—just like he does today with his anachronistic stance on birth control. It’s evident, but he’s out of touch and in denial as to the world overpopulation predicament. Can he change when given the facts? Doubt it! It’s safer to remain in his dark chambers while the world passes him by!

Unfortunately, the laws of Mother Nature don’t care one way or the other. Today, in our country, we cannot keep feeding more people with less gasoline, i.e., Peak Oil bearing down on us within 20 to 3o years as we run out of it. We cannot feed more people with static water supplies. We cannot continue destroying the environment with pollution, carbon footprint and ecological footprint. Those advancing facts cannot be ignored or evaded.

Recently, I received a letter saying, “I can’t handle this author’s ‘Oh my God!’ writing about the future. ‘Why even try?’ he lamented. ‘Why not give up!’ he cried.”

I responded as follows:

Instead of giving up, how about taking action for a better future? How about taking the facts and figures and the websites provided and jumping in to change course. It takes a new thought, a new concept, a new understanding to create a new idea which creates a ‘consciousness shift’ and then moves to a ‘critical mass shift’ and then, ‘tipping point’ to a viable future. Check out how Tom Jefferson did it, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Gandhi, Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Martin Luther King and John Muir for starters.

Facts, you want facts! Check with Norman Meyers,

Oxford

University, as his estimates show that 80 to 100 creatures suffer extinction daily around the world via his 40 years of research. Google it and find out for yourself. No, not end of the world, but complete disregard for our fellow creatures by our reckless fecundity. Here in

North America, it’s about 250 creatures annually suffer extinction as we humans degrade and destroy their habitat as we add 3.1 million each year. How about working to stop mass immigration that assures your progeny a degraded world? How about enlightening others with your knowledge gained from my series, books and presentations?

As with all human encroachment in the natural world, wildlife cannot escape, no place to procreate—as the human mob continues its addition of 80 million added annually net gain, and 1 billion added every 13 years, net gain! And the more humans grow, the more they poison, pollute and destroy this planet’s ability to sustain life.

If you’re not up for “Oh my God” as a delivery system, perhaps I could rock your cradle with some Snickers or Hersey chocolate candy bars, or perhaps a lollipop. What exactly would cause you to take action other than waiting for the “Human Overpopulation Train” running over you or your kids?

I’m not researching and writing this work for my health, but helping this civilization to change course toward a viable future. How about you jumping in and helping all of us? Everything you do—counts! Everything you avoid—counts likewise!

“The

USA continues losing more than one million acres of farmland every year to urban sprawl and erosion.” Mark W. Nowak

At what point will we not be able to feed ourselves? Do you want to reach that point or will you pawn it off on your children? What do you think they will think of your actions or inactions?

“People who take issue with population stabilization do not understand that if it is not done in a graceful way, nature will do it in a brutal fashion.” Henry Kendell

Even if we attained zero population growth today, our own population momentum would add 40 million people to the

USA giving us 350 million. Instead, if we keep adding an unlimited supply of immigrants, we will hit 438 million in 40 years.

The world already manifests itself in diseases such as two million deaths from TB annually worldwide, one third of the world’s people do not have access to clean drinking water, species extinction tops 2,500 plants and animals in the USA every decade from human population encroachment on wild life habitat, growing acid rain, global warming, and the poor of America suffering more and more from legal and illegal immigration and dozens of other consequences—what else is there to argue about immigration?

It’s past time to move toward a stable and sustainable human population. But first, we must save our own country before we can assist other countries.

In this series, I used the Katrina cataclysm to make it clear to you the scale of the population tragedy we face. As it slowly comes ashore, driven by the winds of unrestricted immigration, it will strangle this country into third world slums and destruction you saw in

New Orleans. I’ve shown you Obama’s incompetence as well as that of most national leaders including our governors, senators and congressmen. They fail or won’t address this immigration-population issue as it propels us into the clutches of a crisis that will make Katrina look like a kindergarten birthday party in comparison.

“The more extreme our numbers, the more extreme our children’s consequences.”

“Imagine a country which employs the principles of personal responsibility, freedom and accountability for future generations. Everything you do-counts! If you do nothing, that counts likewise. When you read sobering information, do you want to give up or fall apart? Or, do you want to engage like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams, Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Martin Luther King, Oprah, Barbara Jordan, John Muir and other Americans. You represent the Jefferson’s, Oprah’s and Dr. King’s of the 21st century. Consider it your honor and privilege to become a part of the solutions. Engage the present to change the future! Become an agent of the change you wish to see.”
