After 30 years as a member of the Sierra Club, formed by my favorite and the first environmentalist—John Muir—I stopped giving them $35.00 a year because I learned they wasted my money while doing nothing to protect the environment.
Carl Pope, long time head of Sierra Club, finagled and fandangled millions of hapless Sierra Club members into filling his coffers while he pretended to ‘save’ the environment. At no point would he address overpopulation or massive immigration into the United States as a ‘driving destructive force’ to all his ‘saving’ of the environment.
No matter how much hocus-pocus he performed with slick magazines and campaigns to make America a ‘better’ environment, he stood by while 100 million people added themselves to the United States via immigration. He didn’t breathe a word of protest; not so much as a peep.
Why? Money, lots of money, green money, ‘keep quiet’ money! As long as money flowed into his coffers, he could pretend, hoodwink and deceive with aplomb, style, composure and assurance to his minions. Surely, Pope followed in the hallowed footsteps of John Muir!
What a crock! What a racket! What a trickery!
Pope followed the advice of P.T. Barnum, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
I wrote him saying, “Carl, good buddy, you cannot succeed in saving the environment if you don’t stand up for population stability.”
He wrote back a letter filled with more horse feathers than a barnyard. I quit! I know that John Muir would slap Carl Pope upside the head for being SO deceptive.
Up in Canada, another environmentalist. Tim Murray of www.immigrationwatchCanada.org , lays it on the line.
“I left the environmental movement after 27 years because I
finally faced up to the fact that they were only going to focus on
"symptoms" rather than root causes,” Murray said. “In fact, I toyed
with the idea of setting up a rival group to the local Sierra Club called
"Root Cause". Since then, however, I have discovered that there are
sincere people who believe one "symptom" is the root cause, and
regard my "root cause"--human overpopulation---as a mere symptom.
“Then there are Malthusians like you who of course agree that human overpopulation is a root cause, but regard among other things, "migration", a symptom or as you term it, a "lesser" problem. That is where we differ. I have tried many times to make the point that migration is intimately bound up with global overpopulation. But I consistently fail to make you (and others) understand that. Time and time again I fail to demonstrate that:
1. Open borders, by offering an escape hatch or safety valve for developing nations , allows them to avoid to facing up to their unsustainable and growing population.
2. Open borders is a proven stimulant to fertility in countries of emigration (eg. Central America and the West Indies). The more children had, the greater the chances that one will land in the promised land and forward remittances or anchor and sponsor more family émigrés.
3. Open borders magnifies the ecological impact of migrants from poor to rich countries, making their numbers more significant
4. Open borders, by boosting the population level of countries like the US, Canada, Australia and Britain, makes it difficult for them to achieve sustainability, and until they do so, they have no credibility when they tell developing countries to stabilize and reduce their populations. A "do as I say" rather than "do as I do" policy simply will not work. We have to clean up our own act here before we go preaching to the Africa or Afghanistan or the Philippines about constraining population growth.
5. North American environmental NGOs are critical roadblocks to making the people, the grassroots that you focus on, aware of the above. They are the Pied Pipers who lead the innocent astray. The people cannot hear our voice because the green orgs have the microphone. Therefore, discrediting them becomes a prerequisite for public education. Taking them down is not a "lesser" task.
“To be effective we must form a fist and not contest our opponents with an open hand of five discordant fingers,” said Murray. “But we must first get it right, and unify around the correct analysis. That was Lenin's point. He led a tiny, relatively inconsequential movement and successfully toppled a regime that controlled the Russian empire for many centuries. Why? Because he insisted on the correct line, and eschewed coalitions. To him, revolution was about punching a fist through a rotten door. The door may be rotten, but you still need to strike with a clenched fist. We are all streams moving in the same direction, but we have not formed a confluence. I agree that global overpopulation is paramount, but like Hardin, I also believe that growth, like potholes, is a local issue too.”
Murray expresses a frustration ‘felt’ all over Canada in that her leaders continue to deceive and trick Canadians as to the immigration invasion—as if it benefits everyone—when in fact, it’s tearing Canada into ecological shreds as well as destroying Canadian culture and language. But the leaders of Canada continue just like Carl Pope of the Sierra Club. “Let’s pretend that it’s all wonderful!” they cheer. They avoid facts, accelerating consequences and they ignore the ‘symptoms’ that explode across Canada and the United States.
That ‘pretending environmentalism’ cannot last much longer as reality pops up faster on multiple levels, i.e., water shortages, climate change, species extinction, acidified oceans, acid rain and loss of quality of life—for starters.

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.
