It takes courage to deal with reality. It takes intelligence to understand humanity’s overpopulation predicament in the 21st century. From 1.5 billion humans 100 years ago, humans exploded to 7.1 billion on their way to over 10.1 billion within 38 years. What allowed this explosion of humanity? Answer: oil. That single energy-slave allowed tractors to feed billions. But, we face the end of oil within four decades. Once exhausted, we are left without the energy slave of oil.
“As we go from this happy hydrocarbon bubble we have reached now to a renewable energy resource economy, which we do this century, will the “civil” part of civilization survive? As we both know there is no way that alternative energy sources can supply the amount of per capita energy we enjoy now, much less for the 9 billion expected by 2050. And energy is what keeps this game going. We are involved in a Faustian bargain—selling our economic souls for the luxurious life of the moment, but sooner or later the price has to be paid.” Walter Youngquist, energy
The United States, already living beyond its carrying capacity, rides a thin rail into the 21st century as to sustainability and as to maintaining a functioning civilization. It cannot provide its own oil, but must import 70 percent daily. It’s overburdened cities cannot sustain themselves with the enormous amount of oil, gas, natural gas and coal to pump the energy and food into them. The damage their “ecological footprint” causes worldwide grows with each addition. Their “carbon footprint” exceeds anything nature can digest.
“The ship is already starting to spin out of control. We may soon lose all chance of grabbing the wheel. Humanity faces a genuinely new situation. It is not an environmental crisis in the accepted sense. It is a crisis for the entire life-support system for our civilization and our species.” Fred Pearce, The Last Generation: How Nature Will take Her Revenge for Climate Change
Yet, most Americans and intellectual troglodytes refuse to face the facts. It takes courage, but most lack courage. However, courage must be summoned and regained if we Americans expect to provide for their children—a sustainable civilization.
You are invited to watch these three seven minute videos to educate yourself to our future as a species on this planet. We must come to terms with stabilizing our numbers or face Mother Nature’s wrath.
Dr. Jack Alpert, the environmental/population Einstein of the 21st century shows you in vivid detail what we face and what me must do to ensure humanity’s existence in the 21st century.

Additionally, for the United States, these two videos by Roy Beck, www.NumbersUSA.org
will bring America’s plight into graphic reality.
The good news: you can join www.NumbersUSA.org
to become part of an army of Americans who care about the future of their children, our environment and sustainability.
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls
”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG
, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:
“Immigration by the numbers—off the chart” by Roy Beck
This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words, “Mind boggling!” www.NumbersUSA.org
If you are living in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia or all of Europe, these videos pertain to you and your children.
Overpopulation will become the greatest dilemma facing humanity in all of history. Either we solve it gracefully, or Mother Nature will solve it brutally. We must call for all leaders of the world to address human overpopulation. We must call for human population stabilization.
If not, Mother Nature will presume that you chose to increase your numbers beyond her ability to feed, water, warm, house and transport your numbers. Once you do that, she will act swiftly, without mercy and with deadly intent. Mother Nature always bats last.
