CAPS Ad Reminds Los Angeles that Immigration Drives Most Population Growth

Los Angeles, where I was born and spent most of my youth, is bursting at the seams – too many people, too many cars, too much construction, and therefore too much lost open space. Hard to believe though it is, at one time, Los Angeles was the U.S. agricultural capital.

New Male Contraceptive: a Long Time Coming

While dozens of developed countries around the world have already achieved “zero population growth” (ZPG), global population growth as a whole, far from slowing down, has actually been accelerating in recent years, as I noted in a 2016 CAPS blog post.

Cutting off Family Planning Funds will Increase Immigration Pressure

Unfortunately, the current administration has cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). This political football has been tossed back and forth for decades, but, in spite of spurious charges from family planning opponents, a memorandum from the State Department acknowledged there was no evidence of U.N. support for coercion of any kind.

California’s Perpetual Population Growth Pressures Homebuilders

Citing regulatory barriers, high costs and fewer public resources, the California Department of Housing and Community Development reported earlier this year that the state isn’t keeping up with housing demand.

Earth is the only place in an incomprehensibly vast and ancient cosmos known thus far to possess a biosphere that harbors complex, diverse living things.

Burgeoning Population: What Happens in China Doesn’t Stay in China

As a naïve, youthful world bicycle traveler back in 1984, I toured through China when it opened to international visitors. I fulfilled my teenage dream to walk on the Great Wall of China.

Shocker! Overpopulation Gets Mention in French Presidential Election; Mum is the Word in U.S.

Despite all their stumping, interviewing and debating, neither presidential candidate Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump has mentioned one of the most pressing challenges facing the United States: overpopulation. Come to think of it, congressional hopefuls have been largely quiet about population growth, save for a valiant few.

High Fertility in Terrorist-Sponsoring Nations Increases Risks in U.S.

Recently, Somali-born terrorist Dahir Adan stabbed and wounded nine in a St. Cloud, Minnesota, mall. At about the same time, Afghanistan-born Ahmad Khan Rahami was linked to bombings in New York and New Jersey.

Israel Understands Border Security, Population Stabilization; U.S. Doesn’t

The United States government could learn a lot from Israel. Too bad President Barack Obama holds Israeli Prime Minister and valued U.S. ally Benjamin Netanyahu in such low regard.
