Overpopulation provides America its greatest challenge in the 21st century. However, few want to step up to the question. Most ignore it! But like the midnight Amtrak Express, it’s coming and it’s coming fast!
The United States adds 3.1 million annually on its way to adding 100 million people in the next 26 years by 2035. At the same time, globally, humans add 77 million people each year.
Boyd Wilcox, www.nationaloptimumpopulationcommission.com, said, “Population control! Utter this phrase and for some people and groups, a huge red flag goes up; eyeballs roll, the spine stiffens, the flight or fight endocrine system kicks in; an aggressive response of some kind is inevitable. Why? It’s so out of character.”
For a species that has evolved to be the most controlling organism on the planet, population control should be seen as no big deal. It should be viewed as just another universally accepted example. Control is what we are all about. It is what we do for a living and we are uncontested experts at the game.
“We control most other plant and animal species via habitat destruction or transformation; through the issuance of hunting or harvesting licenses, tags and permits; not to mention poaching and other less socially-approved methods,” Wilcox said. “The practice of medicine, from ancient to modern has been focused upon controlling the source and symptoms of our body’s reaction to numerous organisms. We call them diseases. They are just struggling for survival, too.”
Through humanity’s control, most of our food is grown, produced, packaged, stored, shipped and prepared for consumption under vast systems of control.
“We call it agriculture,” Wilcox said. “It involves huge inputs of energy and material support from chemicals, fertilizers, machinery and petroleum to electricity used to power modern refrigeration. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors would think we were from a different planet.”
Most Americans think themselves immune to population overload. Wilcox provides a different reality.
“Up until the last few centuries, most humans learned by actively participating with others who willingly shared knowledge and skills,” Wilcox said. “It was a more informal method of controlling the passing on of cultural wisdom from one and requires a much greater output of time and energy on the part of both teacher and student. Education now encompasses at least 12 years of formal schooling, with additional years at post—secondary levels becoming more necessary for economic survival. Again, it is a system of control that is universally accepted and one we continue to promote as progress.”
Wilcox continued, “In a democratic system such as ours, we label it as “mutual coercion, mutually chosen.” More autocratic or despotic regimes are less freely chosen, but the populations that live under them nevertheless are subject to controls. If they seek change, it is to a different system of control, not a system of no-control.
“Additional examples could be selected from the realms of Industry, Transportation, Journalism, Media and even Religion. To repeat, we are a species that specializes in control. It has allowed us to occupy otherwise uninhabitable regions of the globe, and to adapt to conditions unhealthy and threatening to our long-term sustainability and survival, including the unprecedented growth in our population. But to continue to control we will, and continue to control we must. Perhaps we should change our scientific name to Homo controlis universalis in recognition of this fact, and our inescapable responsibility to exercise control in the service of wisdom, foresight and a sustainable future. Controlling population is one very important aspect of this responsibility. It should be no big deal. To do otherwise would be…well…out of control.”
Wilcox makes cogent points that humanity must understand, or if hyper-population growth continues within the USA and around the planet, Mother Nature most certainly will take control in rather harsh and accelerating consequences. For example, each year, 18 million human beings die of starvation or related conditions. Those death numbers will accelerate as the human race adds 77 million annually to the planet.
Therefore, in order to live within the carrying capacity of the planet, humans must control their numbers; that simple, that logical.
Henry Kendall said, “Humans can bring about population control graciously or nature will do it brutally.”
As Wilcox said, “To do otherwise would be out of control.”

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.
