When you hear a talk show host say something that you know to be wrong, you flinch, right?! When you see a child work a math problem 4+4=7, you quickly point out the correct answer as 8!
For every column I write on hyper-population growth or mass immigration driving it in the United States, hundreds of self-appointed ‘experts’ and social liberals write counter articles to rebut my work.
The problem--they cannot repudiate raw numbers. They cannot use emotions. They cannot call on tolerance. They cannot call names such as ‘racist’ to negate reality.
The United States accelerates along a path that cannot continue no matter what your race, creed or color. Thousands of top scientists know it and write about it, but the general public stands clueless. Others shy away from it for fear of being called names.
By Chris Clugston--you may click the following high level summary of a detailed analysis of America’s “predicament” and its inevitable consequences. The complete analysis and associated models, evidence, and references can be found at http://www.wakeupamerika.com/PDFs/On-American-Sustainability.pdf
On American Sustainability—Anatomy of a Societal Collapse (Summary)
The Real “Inconvenient Truth”
Clugston writes, “On American Sustainability—Significant Findings and Conclusions.” This man writes from deep research and profound understanding of what we face. No name calling can degrade pure scientific facts.
“Our American way of life—300+ million people enjoying historically unprecedented material living standards—is not sustainable.”
Let me repeat Clugston’s words, “…not sustainable.” California cannot sustain its own addition of 1,700 people and 400 vehicles added to that state—daily! It cannot sustain its projected added 20 million people. It does not possess enough water today! The USA cannot continue adding 3.1 million annually, net gain, on its way to adding 100 million in 26 years.
“America is irreparably overextended—we are living hopelessly
beyond our means, both ecologically and economically. The available supplies of many critical ecological resources and economic resources upon which we depend will soon be insufficient to enable our American way of life,” Clugston said.
He’s not pretending or making this up! We exploded our civilization to over 300 million people that need to be watered, fed, housed and educated. We’re failing across the nation in May 2009 so what will it be like with an added 100 million? Darned frightening!
“The extent to which we are overextended is appalling. Under the
best case scenario, the US can support sustainably less than 20% of our existing population living at less than 20% of our current average living standard,” Clugston said.
Look at California for an example. That state accelerates into a basket-case. It won’t get better but it will get worse. Projections show 100 million people added to this country in 26 years. Get a grip! It won’t happen without horrific consequences.
“Our culture of persistent resource overexploitation, which has
enabled our “success”—our extraordinary American way of life, is also responsible for our “predicament”—our unsustainable American way of life,” Clugston said.
We face a water crisis that proves irreversible and unsolvable. It’s crazy, but thousands think that ‘technology’ will solve it. I am here to tell you that no amount of ‘technology’ will solve any problem that exceeds carrying capacity. Get that in your head or watch your civilization perish and your children with it.
“Sustainability is inevitable. We can transition to a sustainable lifestyle paradigm voluntarily, thereby mitigating the consequent reductions in our population level and living standards; or, we can allow Nature to orchestrate our transition through societal collapse, thereby experiencing catastrophic reductions in our population level and living standards,” Clugston said.
He’s correct! Either we bring about balance or Mother Nature will kick all our butts and especially our children’s butts in 30 years. Nature already kills 18 million humans annually through starvation. At least 2.0 billion humans cannot procure a clean glass of drinking water daily!
“There is only one rational solution to our predicament. We must,
as a society, transition quickly and beginning immediately to a sustainable lifestyle paradigm, one in which we live completely within our means—on renewable natural resources exclusively—forever,” Clugston said.
You might check out www.transitionus.ning.com because they are preparing our cities for a much diminished standard of living and quality of life. We face an energy crisis that will change the way first world countries will live. It’s going to get more agrarian faster than anyone realizes. We will need to feed millions without the use of tractors because the end of the Age of Oil steams toward us incredibly quickly. Even before that, lack of water limits us more than we understand.
“Unfortunately, we are “culturally incapable” of resolving our predicament voluntarily—the inescapable consequence is imminent societal collapse,” Clugston said.
History provides plenty of examples. Read Jared Diamond’s: Collapse: how societies succeed or fail. Richard Heinberg Peak Everything: facing a century of declines. James Howard Kunstler The Long Emergency. If we don’t pull away from growth and hyper-population growth, we will become victims of a ‘Human Katrina’ that will devastate our civilization. No ifs, ands or buts!
“In the absence of an almost inconceivable series of 11th hour miracles, our Societal Collapse could possibly occur within the next 5 years, will probably occur within the next 15 years, and will almost certainly occur within the next 25 years,” Clugston said.
Clugston knows it; I know it. I’ve seen it. Other top experts know it: Dr. Albert Bartlett; Buck Lindsey; Paul Erhlich; Jared Diamond; Governor Richard D. Lamm; Lindsey Grant; Dr. John Tanton; John Rohe; Charles C. Hartman; Dr. Diana Hull; Kathleene Parker; and hundreds of Nobel prize winners, etc.
Again, the world human population grows by 77 million annually. It cannot sustain that number! The USA adds 3.1 million annually by mass immigration. China adds eight million a year even with one child family policy. India adds 12 million annually with no birth control in sight. Shows you how stupid religions remain as they encourage unending birth rates! Dumb, stupid, dumber! Talk about humanity’s chosen suicide of itself and its planet home!
We stand nostril-deep in trouble as do the rest of the petroleum-driven world societies. Humanity must move toward sustainability, balance and stable populations. Religions must advocate birth control and two child families.

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.
From: Frosty Wooldridge
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.
