America’s most pressing issue in 2011: human overpopulation—what you can do about it

 You may have read about the results of the U.S. Census last week.  The United States grows by 3.1 million people annually on its way to adding 100 million people within 25 years and 138 million people within 40 years. All totaled,  demographic projections show the USA doubling from 310 million to 600 million by 2070 give or take a few years.
We already know  what “THAT” kind of population overload created in countries like Mexico, India, China, Bangladesh and elsewhere: poverty, water shortages, resource limits, energy shortages, species extinction, lowering of quality of life, degraded standard of living, lowered educational opportunities, less medical care, crowding and worse. It’s already happening in America!
How can we work to stabilize US population to ensure a viable and sustainable future for all Americans?   We need to raise the issue by our voices in print, on the radio and on television. If not you, then who?  If not in 2011, then when?
Right now, some very powerful websites allow you to take action in a variety of ways.
You may visit Joe Bish, coordinator at: 
http://www.populationspeakout.org/ to make a personal pledge to take action on as many levels as you wish.  It’s called the “Global Population Speakout” and it starts in February 2011 or today is fine, too!
2011 is the year human population on Earth will exceed 7 billion. Thanks to you, the month of February will serve as a wake-up call to your friends, colleagues, local media, social networks, environmentalists and other social change advocates.
If you haven’t already, you may want to start thinking about how to fulfill your Pledge!

Dear Mr. Charlie Rose, Diane Sawyer, Matt Lauer, Bill Moyers or whomever:
Re: Story idea for your show
Thank you for your great work on your television show.  I feel that you bring Americans the best information in order to make decisions that affect our country and the world.
In 2011, the human race will hit 7.0 billion people. Humans add 1 billion added people every 13 years.  At the same time, the USA adds 3.1 million annually on its way to adding 100 million people by 2035—a scant 25 years from now. It expects to double to 600,000,000 within 60 to 70 years.
With our water shortages today, energy crisis, environmental problems and resource depletion along with “Peak Oil”, not to mention quality of life and standard of living issues, I would like to see your program interview top U.S. experts like Dr. Albert Bartlett at www.albartlett.org ; Roy Beck at www.NumbersUSA.org ; Governor Richard D. Lamm of Colorado;  David Paxson of www.WorldPopulationBalance.org ; William Ryerson at www.populationmedia.org ; Frosty Wooldridge at www.frostywooldridge.com ;  Edward C. Hartmann at www.thepopulationfix.org ; Joe Bish at www.globalpopulationspeakout.org ; Dr. Diana Hull at www.thesocialcontract.com ;  Kathleene Parker, Santa Fe, NM; Bromwell Ault at bromwellault@gmail.com;  Richard Heinberg at Heinberg@postcarbon.org ; Brenda Walker at www.limitstogrowth.org ; Mark Krikorian at www.cis.org , and others like Dr. Tainter, Dr. Catton, Dr. Otis Graham, Dan Stein, Bob Dane, Ira Melman, Susan Tulley, Robert Engleman, Chris Clugston, John Rohe, Dr. John Tanton,
Marylou Tanton, Marilyn Hempel, and more.
Thank you for pursing America’s most pressing issue and most avoided issue in the 21st century.  Let’s change course before we add another 100 million people to our already unsustainable civilization.   We need to become a beacon to the world.
Kindest regards,
Your name

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:

This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a word “Mind boggling!”  www.NumbersUSA.org

This delusional pen-pusher badly needs the likes of Laurent Jubinville and SamFox to wake himself up from his contaminating affliction called OS sickness [overpopulation syndrome] with symptoms of rapidly advancing hallucinations similar to that of an LSD withdrawal.

I passed by the viewing edge of Arizona’s wide, wide freezing cold Sonoran Desert the other day on my way back home after spending the holiday at this 48th state -- the last of the contiguous states admitted to the Union after achieving statehood on February 14, 1912. In winter this thermal place in summer is so cold … so spiritually abysmal, extremely freezing and desolate even if you are in a holiday mood under the blast of my car heater about to burn out; the howling of the chilling wind in an overcast weather that beat up my windshields was turning the depth and breathe of the desert into an impersonal and hostile habitat for any living thing to survive on this forsaken part of planet Earth.

It was depressingly depauperate and I thought if this guy is banished to this place as a punishment for deceiving the people with his hallucinating yakity-yak that Earth is overpopulated, he will find out that the yawning space would swallow the more than 100 million additional people he feared would overcrowd America in the next 25 years, and still would have a separating distance between every individuals the size of a football field where each of them could move and play around to cure an imagined claustrophobia or overcrowding neurosis like the writer of the above article have been suffering for quite sometime now to this day.

I forgot to add the result of the over population myth & fear mongering. Remember we were told to stop reproducing to save the planet. Too many people took the fear to heart & this is part of the result:


There are those who have gone on having children.  To bad it was not us. Now we may not have to worry about over population but WHO has been reproducing in our stead.

Frosty is great on many subjects, like illegal immigration. But over population is a myth. 

There are pocket concentrations of over population to be sure, mostly in cities where  job opportunity is concentrated.. But the over all earth is hardly so crowded that we have to reduce the number of people. That's a 'progressive' goal called eugenics.

Last time I drove to Missouri there was a LOT of open space. Went through Texas on the way.

If most govts, including OURS, would get out of the way & let a true minimal regulation free market prevail we'd find solutions to problems much faster than  if we continue trying to find answers in govt controlled economies.

 Try reading "The Good News Is That The Bad News Is Wrong". Last I read all the people on earth could fit into the state of Texas. Been through Texas. I believe it.

Frosty, you have always been very preoccupied about immigration and overpopulation in the last while. Let me say your warnings are being heeded. Already, we the people are doing everything possible towards the solution of over-population. Mostly, let me say that we are doing nothing, and it is this way that things will happen. With newly activated geo-techtonic weapons of mass destruction allowing the elite to manipulate the weather, the ability to trigger earthquakes and tsunamis, biological weapons at the ready to unleash a global plague, with the passive acceptance of Monsanto's propagation of GM-sterile food seeds, their absolute control of all fresh water on the planet, famine will add to these goals. Now to add to the solution of population control, let us not forget same-sex marriages, homosexual practices of sodomy, and all other non-natural abominations. The final number will be eventually attained by God's wrath for all these sins against His very plan and reason for our existence. You may quit worrying, the numbers are about to change, and trust me, I did not mention one single manner in which this cleansing is about to happen as this would cause too many people to either call me a dangerous alarmist or else they may want to wish and pray for death before the gavel in the Hand of God strikes the podium as we hear His proclamation: "This court is adjourned".
