Human Population May Doom King of Beasts

Recently I read a figure I found quite shocking, given my memories from childhood. When I was a kid in the 1950s, I was totally fascinated by African wildlife, particularly the big cats, lions, leopards and black panthers. I constantly looked through magazines to find pictures of them to put in my wildlife scrapbook.

Americans Still Worried About Population Growth, But Environmental Groups Couldn’t Give a Hoot

A recently released opinion poll by Rasmussen Reports reveals that more than twice as many Americans think the U.S. population is growing too fast rather than too slowly. Now if only blind, deaf and dumb environmental groups like the Sierra Club would realize this. (In the case of the Sierra Club, I should say former environmental group; now it’s primarily a left-wing “social justice” organization.)

Latest Reality Check: Still Only One Habitable Planet – Better Caregiving Needed

Physicist Stephen Hawking recently said, “I think the human race has no future if it doesn’t go into space.” Moving off planet must to be part of the “long-term strategy,” Hawking believes, if Homo sapiens is to survive for another million years.

Enormous Environmental Destruction Results from Raising Animals for Consumption

Very few American concern themselves with the underbelly of overpopulation. Let’s take a look!

“Some 38 percent of the world’s grain crop is now fed to animals, as well as large quantities of soybeans. There are three times as many domestic animals on this planet as there are human beings,” according to Peter Singer, author of “Practical Ethics.”

‘The Greatest Generation’ of Conservationists Passes On

CAPS Advisory Board Member and Legendary River Conservationist Martin Litton Dies at 97

News anchor and author Tom Brokaw famously wrote of The Greatest Generation: those stalwart American men and women who survived the harrowing deprivation of the Great Depression in the 1930s only to face the bloodiest conflict in the long and bloody history of humanity in the 1940s.

Somebody Buys the Environmentalist Case Against Immigration

Staff writer Joshua Keating of the liberal online magazine Slate recently blogged that: “Nobody Buys the Environmentalist Case Against Immigration.”

In one sense, Keating is onto something. The liberal politicians who supposedly care about the environment apparently don’t care enough to oppose the endless, mass-immigration-driven U.S. population growth that is trashing the American environment.

Population Stabilization No Quick Fix for Environmental Crisis – That’s One Reason it’s Often Overlooked as a Solution

A study recently published in the prestigious scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) has generated a lot of media buzz, but for the wrong reason.

The study, by ecological researchers Corey Bradshaw and Barry Brook at the University of Adelaide in Australia, is entitled “Human population reduction is not a quick fix for environmental problems.”

Drought-Tolerant Landscaping is Part of the Solution to California’s Water Woes, and so is Population Stabilization

Xeriscaping is landscaping with drought-tolerant, preferably native plants. In recent decades, its popularity has grown in the American Southwest as acute water shortages have become chronic water shortages…and as residents have sought to live in greater harmony with nature in what writer Mary Hunter Austin (1868-1934) famously called (in the title of her 1903 book) The Land of Little Rain.

Hall of Fame Rocker Bob Seger Joins Environmentalists’ Cause

One of America’s iconic rock and roll singers, Bob Seger, has, in the waning years of his hit-filled 50-year career, turned his attention to the environment. On October 9, Seger and his Silver Bullet Band released the group’s latest album titled “Ride Out.”

Dark Skies Disappearing

Light pollution and population

After my first visit as a 10-year old kid to see dinosaur fossils at the Carnegie-Mellon Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I wanted to become a paleontologist. It was the first six-syllable word I ever learned.

By the time I reached age 11, however, after a school trip to the Buhl Planetarium, I’d lifted my gaze from the ground to the sky and set my sights higher: all the way to the stars. I decided I wanted to be an astronomer.
