Part 2: The developing world adds 137 million
newborns annually, educational nightmare, providing food impossible, misery
Dr. Otis Graham in his book Unguarded Gates, said, “Most Western
elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds
80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers
and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten
billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.”
wrote his book, he uncovered uncomfortable aspects of humanity’s race toward
endless population growth on a finite planet.
Let’s examine what he addressed that you see summed up in the quote
with the current world population of 7.1 billion human beings, an average of 57
million people die off from all causes—old age, war, disease, starvation and
other violence. Not only does human
fecundity replace that 57 million people who died, it adds another 80 million
to total 137 million newborn babies every year of every decade without pause. Thus, the human race adds one billion new
humans onto the planet every 12 years.
Humanity expects to break 10 billion by 2050—a scant 37 years from
now. Demographic projections indicate
the human race could very well reach 14 billion by the end of the century.
poverty in Mumbai, India right next to the airport. Notice the filth and trash spread all over
the ground. Note that over 100 million people if not more living in India cannot
access a toilet, but use the land daily. Thus the ground water, the Ganges and
all other rivers run in raw sewage. Note
that India adds 11 million people net gain annually to its 1.21 billion
population on its way to becoming the most populated country in the world by
2050 at 1.6 billion humans living in intractable poverty, totally miserable and hopeless.) Photography by
First of all,
with that huge number of newborn children, the countries that give births to
that many people cannot educate them. Thus, illiteracy, the barometer for all
poverty and human misery—accelerates. Further, they cannot feed them. Thus, the United Nations estimates that a low
of 10 million children starve to death annually and as high as 15 million. Even with 10-15 million of them dying, it
leaves 122 million to feed, water, house, educate and eventually create work
for their lives.
As you can
imagine, it’s not working. The eruptions
in Africa in the past several years revolve around food crises. Egypt alone
with its 82 million subsisting on desert sands expects to reach 150 million by
mid century. Egypt depends on grains from the West to feed its human multitude,
but as oil depletes and costs more, Egyptians will not be able to buy
food. They face mass starvation. Hundreds of thousands live on the brink in
Somalia, Sudan, Congo, and South Africa.
All of Asia lives on the edge. A
full one billion human beings worldwide cannot secure a clean glass of water
people live by the skin of their necks daily.
For one year, I bicycled the entire length of South America to see
poverty extremes that most people in the US and Europe cannot conceive. It’s
worse in India and Bangladesh times 100.
Yet, those countries accelerate their human populations without
end.) Photography by Reuters.
political leaders of the world, religious leaders of the world and the
developing countries of the world refuse to take action. The human mob accelerates without a word from
NBC’s Brian Williams, ABC’s Diane Sawyer or CBS’ Scott Pelley. ABC’s David Muir raced around Somalia last
year when 100,000 children faced immediate starvation—but that crisis quickly
lost the public eye and the children continued starving.
How Many Refugees Are in the World?
, a 2009 report
by the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR), 42 million people around the
world were uprooted from their homes due to conflict or persecution. Of this
number, 16 million were considered refugees, while 26 million were displaced
within their own countries or were considered asylum-seekers in other
countries. Approximately 45% of the world’s refugees are under 18-years-old.
About 80% of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing countries. The
largest refugee producing countries at present include Afghanistan, Iraq,
Somali and Sudan, while Colombia, Iraq, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of
the Congo have the largest internally displaced populations.
estimates by the UN show in excess of 50 million refugees looking for a new
country to move to by 2050. A recent

one ever asks the most logical question:
when will the immigrant line to First World countries end? Answer: the line grows by 80 million net gain
annually, which means the line never ends, but grows and grows and grows.

developing countries refuse to engage birth control for cultural and religious
reasons, they use First World countries for a human exhaust valve. But, at some point, countries like the United
States, Canada, European countries and Australia will exceed their carrying
capacity—resulting in water shortages, food crises, energy depletion and
India, Indonesia, Mexico, the Middle East and Bangladesh continue growing their
populations without pause.
As soon as
their refugees flood into First World countries, those refugees grow their
carbon footprint impact, water footprint, energy footprint and ecological
footprint 10 to 30 times greater than they impacted the environment in their
my travels through Hong Kong where millions of people live in 100 square foot
“coffin” apartments. You cannot even
imagine the human degradation of spirit when you live in a 100 square foot
apartment. We must ask ourselves how far
into dehumanizing the human race we want to tread via endless population
gets solved and everything consequential happening to the planet
accelerates. Therefore, Graham spelled
it out in his quote: “…but to absorb our global brothers and sisters
until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans
packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.”
countries must ask themselves if they want to tread that path? Can the United States sustain the projected
100 million immigrants within the next 37 years—by 2050? Why should it? What will it mean to quality of life and
standard of living? What will it mean as to water supplies and energy? Answer: it’s all headed into the toilet
faster than a bullet train.
From my world
travels to all those places facing human chaos, I can unequivocally state that
the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia stand on the edge of a
demographic cliff. They cannot and will
not save those developing world countries from their own fecundity folly, but,
if they continue immigration without pause—those first world countries will
surely sink into the abyss of the same conditions that the refugees fled.
point, the United States must take stock of its path. It must decide on its
future. On the current path, it faces
demographic disaster. That’s a
mathematical certainty. It’s only a
matter of time.
