make the connections on overpopulation in America. Our sheer numbers of humans force us to move
into dangerous territory as to food production, energy usage, water and
everything else. And again, you may take
action with the web sites and books to educate you further. Our future stands in our hands! We can change course by our choices.
struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than
the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We
are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies. In a war such as this,
then, what is victory and how will we recognize it?” Al Gore
Vice President Al Gore hosted “An Inconvenient Truth”, which critics blasted,
but he started the ball rolling by creating the discussion, which ensued a
rousing debate. Good for him! Ironically, he too, never mentioned
overpopulation. While his critics scurrilously
attacked him on “Global Warming”, in my world travels, I personally watched the
glaciers melting: they don’t lie! Lester
Brown, author of Plan B, 4.0
, at www.earthpolicyinstitute.org
validates Gore with scientific proof.
anything, we may call Global Warming something like Climate Change or, better
yet, Climate Destabilization. When you
wreck the supporting mechanisms of any system, you ultimately destroy its
ability to function.
let’s look at another system the human species degrades daily: water, land and
dastardly things do we do to our biosphere daily that continue to mount up on
our species and all life on earth?
Answer: 80,000 chemicals injected into the air, land and water 24/7
without pause all over the planet!
night, in Denver, I watched a movie, “Vanishing of the Bees!” by Bee Hive
Productions. It chronicled billions of bees dying from “Colony Collapse
Disorder” by a 40 year bee keeper named David Hackenberg of Lewisberg,
Pennsylvania. This enormous death rate occurs all over the planet where humans
spray chemicals on crops—especially mono-culture crops, i.e., massive fields of
only one crop.
met with French bee keepers and they forced Bayer Chemical Company, also the
makers of Bayer Aspirin, to stop by court order in France. But here in the USA, he and David Menendez, another
bee keeper, must show scientific proof to stop Bayer from distributing the
deadly chemicals. The French stopped
Bayer via 300,000 people marching in the streets of Paris screaming, “Stop
killing our bees!” Their bees got back
to their healthy plants and pollinating!

WITHOUT BEES NOTHING CAN GROW WITHOUT POLLINATION
the United States, money trumps science, common sense and reason. Bayer, by the way, pushes millions of
Americans to drop a few of its tabs daily to help stave off heart attacks.
Results: an average of 7,000 Americans die of aspirin poisoning annually and
thousands more suffer bleeding ulcers.
You gotta’ love those pharmaceutical companies! Instead of a healthy low cholesterol diet and
exercise, solve it with a pill! Yippee-ki-yo-ki-yea!

DO THOSE 80,000 CHEMICALS GO?
to EWG, http://www.foodnews.org/reduce.php
95.6 percent of Americans store chemicals in their bodies from ingesting them
from eating fruits and vegetables. All
chicken and beef products carry eight to nine chemicals in their bodies that
transfer to your body when you eat them.
Katie Couric reported, “Twenty years ago, 1 in 20,000 live births in the United
States suffered Autism; today, it’s 1 in 110 births. Scientists don’t know what’s causing it, but
they continue to investigate chemicals in our environment that may be the
village idiot could tell you the answer: billions of tons of chemicals injected
onto every living thing on this planet since 1945!
farming interests claim that 98 percent of fresh fruits and vegetables tested
have no detectable residues. Who’s right?
EWG said, “Consequently,
most fruit and vegetable samples are found to be contaminated: USDA
detected one or more pesticides in 7 of every 10 samples analyzed in 2008, the
most recent year for which data are available.
All told, EWG analyses show that since 2001 USDA
has detected 215 different pesticides in fresh fruits and vegetables sold in
the U.S., including 35 pesticides that each pollute at least 15 types of
produce, such as apples, grapes, strawberries, sweet corn and other children’s
favorites. The bottom line: if you eat
in America, unless you’re on an all-organics diet, you eat pesticides.”
Who stands in the most
danger? Everybody, especially developing
“EPA estimates that 40 percent of children tested by CDC from 1999 to 2002 had
unsafe levels of organophosphate in their bodies above standard margins of
safety (Paynes-Sturges 2009). Researchers from Emory University in Atlanta have
reported that young children are exposed to organophosphates primarily through
their diets. (Lu 2008).”

If any of us, no matter what our race,
creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for
30 years as to the population/immigration equation-our children will find
themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will
