How would you like to see America’s population double to 638 million people? Given the problems we already face, how does that number sit well with you? Fasten your seatbelts because that number will be your children’s reality.
Ever get the feeling you’ve been conned? Somebody sold you a bill of goods? Got a queasy feeling deep down in your guts? P.T. Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
In the past 40 years via the astounding shortsightedness of the late U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy, the United States added 100 million to its population via immigration. Before that time, we enjoyed 194 million in 1963. Today, we slog forward with 309 million on our way to 438 million in four decades.
What bright minds in the U.S. Senate thought adding 100 million people to this country would be a good thing? Inquiring minds would like to know why our Congress thinks adding another 100 million stands as the utopian idea of the 21st century.
Every time anyone with a brain that enjoys a three digit IQ speaks up about legal or illegal immigration, he or she suffers a fusillade of name calling and belittlement. But the fact remains, no matter what your race, creed or color, nature doesn’t care where you come from when it comes to water, resources or shelter.
And yet, at the Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change, not one single, solitary, pea-pickin’ world leader mentioned the fact that humans add 77 million to the planet annually; and, that no amount of cap and trade, conservation or even alternative energy could prevent desecration of Earth’s environment. Never have I seen so many ‘dead’ people sitting up in their seats with their eyes open.
In a stunning column, Steve Sailer, www.Vdare.org, exposed the insanity of the Copenhagen fraud with a piece titled: “What the New Census Bureau Projections Mean For Climate Change—And America.”
“With climate in the news, it’s a good time to review the Census Bureau study of the factor that will have the single greatest impact on U.S. carbon emissions over the next 40 years: immigration,” said Sailer. “With a couple of weeks left in the decade, the Census Bureau has finally gotten around to releasing What If? projections showing the impact of various immigration policies on America’s population:
greater number of migrants arriving in the United States will correspond to a
larger increase in the size of the total population. Under the assumption of a
high level of net international migration, the population is expected to grow
to 458 million by 2050. … “
[United States Population Projections: 2000 to 2050 by Jennifer M. Ortman and Christine E. Guarneri of the Census Bureau]
That’s an increase of 150 million carbon-belching residents of America.
“In contrast, for the Zero Net International Migration series the population will increase slightly by 2050 to 323 million. “
That’s an increase of only 15 million.
“In other words, immigration policy will determine whether the population grows over the next four decades by 150 million or by 15 million—an order of magnitude!” said Sailer. “Americans are just not supposed to think about the link between immigration, population, and carbon emissions. Didn’t George Orwell say, “Ignorance is Strength!” or something like that?!”
Denial is a river in Egypt!
“This year’s projections—which got a little publicity because they pushed back slightly the date at which whites are set to become a minority in America—feature four different scenarios regarding net immigration (see Figure 1 in the report),” said Sailer.
This allows us a much better understanding of effect of immigration:High Immigration: Net immigration grows to an annual rate of 2.4 million by 2050, and the total population reaches 458 million (of which 144 million would be Hispanic). “Low” Immigration: Net immigration reaches 1.7 million by the middle of the century, and the population climbs to 423 million (124 million Hispanics). Constant Immigration: The net number of immigrants stays flat at just under one million per year, and the population hits 399 million (111 million Hispanics). Zero Immigration: The number of immigrants equals the number of emigrants, and the population peaks at 323 million in 2050 (68 million Hispanics).
“Please note something that the Census Bureau doesn’t quite make clear: “Zero Net International Migration” doesn’t mean zero immigration. It means that the number of emigrants and immigrants must be equal. Since a few hundred thousand people emigrate from the U.S. each year, a few hundred thousand immigrants per year could be accommodated under a policy of Zero Net International Migration.”
“That’s because immigration naturally tends to feed upon itself,” said Sailer. “Moving to America becomes easier the more friends and relatives a potential immigrant already has in America,” said Sailer. “In contrast, there are 240 million people in Indonesia, but the 2000 Census found only 63,000 Indonesians in this country. With so few friends and relatives currently established in the U.S., moving to America affords Indonesians a daunting prospect. Yet, if we allow the Indonesian beachheads in America to expand, eventually they will be large enough to attract an exponentially growing number of Indonesians. (And there are a lot of Indonesians…)”
It’s instructive to extend out the scenarios from the Census Bureau’s stopping point in the year 2050 to 2100.
If we assume the same rate of deceleration of growth in the second half of the century, down to a 0.64 percent annual increase by 2100, America’s population will then be 668 million. That’s 668,000,000!
“It would be intriguing to ask the Climate Change folks what they think about America’s population swelling to 668 million,” said Sailer. “But, of course, they wouldn’t answer. They’d just sputter and call you names.”
Names: fear-monger, hate-monger, racist, xenophobe, bigoted, nativist, etc. The media will not allow such names as: realist, environmentalist, population expert, pragmatist or rationalist.
What you need to ask yourself: what will my kids do when the U.S. population hits 668 million on its way to a billion? Answer: same as they do in China, India and Bangladesh—slog through a miserable life and hope to die sooner rather than later. American kids will become a part of what’s currently known as the “Human Misery Index” in the third world, but it will be here in the USA, formerly a first world country.
