WHAT ALL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES REFUSE TO TALK ABOUT
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 rain�about four months of rain,� the reporter said.
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?
What factor facing the United States stands immune from public, political and religious discussion? Short answer: runaway overpopulation as we add 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:
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:
�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,� he said.
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. What does that mean? It means �full speed ahead� like the Titanic. Everything we�re doing proves to be window dressing, cotton candy and pointless unless we deal with population stability.
What should our presidential candidates, religious leaders and average citizens be promoting?
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!
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 deal with it; it will deal with us�rather
