faces crushing issues in 2009, but what crisis do you suppose the media danced
around in 2008—to ignore, to deny and to push into oblivion? Let’s not talk about it, let’s avoid it, let’s
pretend it’s not happening!
While the LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Denver Post, New York Times, Atlanta Constitution and most other papers reported on gridlock traffic, thousands of accidents daily, air pollution overload, water aquifers drying up and not enough lanes on the highways—along with hundreds of powder puff pieces—they never once reported on the cause.
What cause? You mean we live in a cause and effect world? You mean if I pour too much scalding coffee into a cup, it spills onto my lap? You mean if you don’t repair the brakes on your car that they will fail at some inopportune time? Can it be if you stick your finger into a flame, you will burn yourself? Nah, that can’t be, can it?
You bet your bippy Jack!
So what caused most of the environmental, quality of life, energy and other exploding issues facing Colorado and America?
In 2008, the United States added 3.1 to 3.4 million people net gain. The US jumped from 303 million to 306 million on its way to 400 million by 2035—a mere 27 years from now. They slipped in quietly from other overpopulated states, legally and illegally from other overloaded countries. Both legal and illegal immigration drove the other 2.1 million added persons to the USA in 2008. We added our own 1.0 million from ‘population momentum’. (Official numbers to be tabulated this year)
Hyper-population growth stands behind every environmental crisis facing America, yet none of our leaders or media people address it.
While Carlin banged on our funny bone for five decades, other concerned people discuss the more serious side of our dilemma.
"One of the biggest green discussions we have in our home is about how we will never be able to really get control of the destruction of our planet's valuable resources until we realize that we have an enormous responsibility and obligation to control the size of the human population that is expanding at a rate never seen before in our history,” said Jason Alexander (Seinfeld bald guy) “This planet was never intended to support the number of human beings we currently have residing on it. As a result, natural lands and animal populations are disappearing—and rapidly. If we do not start to really understand this harsh reality and reverse it, our planet will not survive. At least not with a quality of life that anyone would wish for.
“So our family talks about responsibility in family planning. We talk about replacing ourselves on this globe, rather than doubling or tripling our numbers. It is not an easy conversation. Life and families and babies are all joyous gifts. But if we do not begin to truly account for our numbers, we will surely create an ecological crisis that will only lead to anguish and despair."
Whether it’s Colorado or California or Cancun—folks—we face humongous consequences playing out across the globe in 2009. I guarantee you each problem you read about zooms in on your state and the United States IF we continue adding sheer population overload. Nothing will be gained by adding population overload and everything will be degraded if we continue on this path.
You’re invited to send this column to all your friends and all your politicians. Send LTE’s to your home town newspapers to address what we face IF we allow continue population growth. Demand they address new ideas that step out of the box. Ask them to consider: “US Sustainable Population Policy”; “US Water Usage Policy”; “US Environmental Impact Policy.” “US Sustainable Immigration Policy of fewer than 100,000 annually.”
Additionally, what ideas do you bring to the table? It’s a collective effort and every person’s input counts. If you like more information, you may look at the websites provided to help you understand this great collective undertaking to move America and your state toward a sustainable and viable future.
Let’s use our collective power to make ‘hyper-population growth’ the new buzz word of 2009 and force it into the national spotlight. Let’s deal with it and stop allowing the media and our leaders to ignore it.

Roy Beck gives a graphic presentation of our fate if we continue to allow legal and illegal immigration to swamp this country. If you have children, you will be particular unnerved at their fate. I know Roy Beck personally and his integrity and knowledge stand at the top. Pass this web site 14 minute video far and wide across America to educate everyone you know. We either stop this human tsunami or the future of this country will be much like Rome's. We must, as a nation and a civilization, move to secure our country from this massive, unrelenting population overload from a line that never ends. This will be the most compelling 14 minute video of your life.
Bob Woodruff of ABC asked input from all citizens concerning the future of our planet. Go to www.earth2100.tv for a sobering reality check as to what we face and to what I have been writing about for the past 20 years. Our ‘window’ to change to a balanced population and non-polluting energy diminishes every day we listen to irresponsible media and thus ignore the blatant symptoms manifesting all over America and the planet.

This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
