Population Growth Increases Food Imports, Insecurity

The Worldwatch Institute reports that global imports of grain grew by more than five times over the last half century, from just above 50 million tons in 1961 to more than 300 million tons in 2013.

It’s a precarious, unsustainable situation with ominous portent for the future – and one that has already led to food riots and political instability in recent years.

Can Liberals Learn to Love Immigration Reduction (Again)? Author and Professor Philip Cafaro Believes They Can.

Dr. Philip Cafaro is a professor of environmental philosophy and ethics at Colorado State University in Fort Collins and an avid outdoorsman.

The link between high population growth and stress on the environment should be obvious for anyone to see.

Ironically, many self-professed environmentalists are blind as well, rendered sightless by their dogma that concern about too many people is an affront to “social justice.”

Celebrating Responsible Men and Giving Them their Voice in Family Planning

Traffic Gridlock, Endless Population Growth

From my own experiences in traffic in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Sydney, Houston, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Beijing, Shanghai, Atlanta, San Francisco and dozens of other overpopulated cities, gridlocked traffic causes more deaths, more tension, more suffering and more emotional misery than yet understood.

Ebola and Overpopulation

American medical history was made on Tuesday, September 30, when it was announced that the first case of Ebola has now been diagnosed in the United States. Until then, a handful of Ebola patients had been treated in the U.S. only after first being diagnosed in Africa.
