A reader sent me a sobering video of the world’s most populated 12 cities. They range from 11 million people all the way to Tokyo, Japan’s 36 million people—crammed into concrete jungles, congested traffic, polluted air and loss of connection to nature. Write me for a copy of the video at firstname.lastname@example.org because there is no link.
I have visited 10 of those cities including Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai, Paris, Los Angeles, San Paulo, Tokyo, Montreal, New York, Houston, etc. Most people don’t have a clue as to what an environmental nightmare those cities force onto Mother Nature—carbon footprint, ecological footprint, water footprint, species extinction rates and more. The bigger the city, the more inhumane the conditions become. The larger the city, the more pollution, crime, disconnection and human depravity. The bigger the city, the more widespread and long term destruction to our planetary environment from so much concentration of the need for water, food and energy.
For the past 35 years, I have been writing and speaking all over America, Europe, Canada and Australia about what humanity faces as to the relentless growth of sheer numbers. Obviously, I have attacked it as to America’s immigration predicament because we continue importing endless millions into our once stable country. Have you ever wondered why those endless millions attempt to escape their overloaded countries? Somehow, the powerful people at the top refuse to understand that endless immigration leads to ultimate collapse of any civilization.
This week, Jordan Weissmann in The Atlantic said, “The reality is that we need more people…if our fertility rate continues to lag, there won’t be enough young workers to support aging Americans as they gobble up retirement benefits.” As I read his stupid, inane, insipid and troglodyte mentality—I wanted to scream. Guys like him suffer from a complete disconnect to reality. On the next page, the headlines read, “Climate change: humanity’s greatest dilemma of the 21st century.” You wonder how stupid those people can be, and the answer is: really, incredibly dim-witted.
Ross Douthat in the New York Times said, “More babies please.” What a complete intellectual “innumerate” or what demographer Dr. Albert Bartlett, www.AlBartlett.org, said, “An educationally credentialed expert, innumeracy is the mathematical equivalent of illiteracy, who say that growth is inevitable or that we need it.”
America doesn’t need any more growth. We cannot sustain our civilization today with 315 million without importing 7 out of 10 barrels of oil, so how will we feed, water, transport and warm ourselves with the projected 438 million Americans within the next 38 years? I am beside myself “HOW” stupid our leaders prove themselves.
This past week, one reader, Chad Kline, presented his excellent understanding of our predicament. I will present it in a three part series. He understands what I have seen. It’s not pretty.
America about to add 100 million immigrants within 35 years
“I have the answer, the only answer, but nobody likes the answer,” Chad said. “And the answer is: the problems of humanity and human-nature are directly proportional to population density. So simple! Everybody knows that the magnitude of crime and corruption is greater per capita in urban areas than rural areas, because there is more competition for, thus inequities in, resources.
“There are greater hierarchies of power, but power corrupts; greater requirements to plunder in that we can't eat concrete, steel, and glass. There is greater anonymity and less accountability. These are natural immutable laws, because human nature is what it is. Human nature was the same 10,000 years ago as it is today, just like monkey nature and dog nature.
“At this time, there are 7.65 million square miles of arable land (check www.reference.com for arable land), and almost 7.1 billion people (1000/sq mi), which works out to 56x56 yards per person on earth. One half of that is jungle/rain-forest, which leaves 39x39 yards for every person on earth - and that 39x39sqyds must be used to grow all the food a person and their livestock eat all year.
“All the natural fibers one wears, all the wood products one uses each year - from paper and pencils to homes, furniture, and fences; all land for grazing - for butter, milk, meat and leather products; and for medicinal crops such as poppies and oilseeds as well.
“Keep in mind - much arable land is used for urban areas, mining, wildlife, and more. So, it's actually much less than 39x39 yards per person on earth. So, trust me, the world will only get more corrupt and dire as the pressures mount to squeeze the most of what is left as population increases.
“Now you know why we need control of all oil - because plastics and underground material must be the future for clothing and housing. That, and urban sprawl will be needed for food; and all the factors I listed in the beginning will only get worse. And there is nothing you can do about it. All the ranting and raving and bizarre theories and info-wars and headline news will change nothing; absolutely nothing, because at the root, they all desire to change human nature, which is impossible.
“There are very good reasons why all past civilizations never moved, regrouped, and started up again; and the reason is because they all realized that human nature is a complete failure once it embarks on the course of high-density civilization. There can be no other answer.
“No more news needs to be read, no more theories need to be understood, no more questions need to be resolved, no more fingers need to be pointed, no more conspiracies need to be exposed; because they solve none of the problems of human nature and population density, and until that changes, nothing else will.”
Ask yourself if you want your children to live in America as it doubles to 625 million and what advantages will that bring them and future generations. That’s going to happen within the lifetime of a child born today. We must change course.
