Giraffe Populations Plummet in Africa

Yet Another Iconic Animal Threatened by Human Overpopulation

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. It took life some four billion years to evolve step by painstaking step from simple, single-celled, bacteria-like organisms lacking nuclei to the advanced creatures with backbones and brains that fly, swim, run and tunnel across Earth’s surface today.

Contrary to the hopes of those who care about an environmentally sustainable future for humanity and the biosphere, world population growth is actually speeding up, not slowing down.

According to the demographers at the respected Population Reference Bureau in Washington, D.C, approximately 90 million people have been added to the planet’s population since last year, at the average rate of 246,000 more humans (net, or births minus deaths) every single day.

2,000 Years of Global Growth in 6 Minutes

The NGO Population Connection (formerly Zero Population Growth or ZPG) has produced an outstanding, visually arresting 6-minute video that graphically dramatizes the population explosion humanity and our Earth have experienced in the last two centuries.

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.

Nobody Ever Migrates Because of Overpopulation

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.

New Projections Blow Past Previous Estimates of World Population Stabilization in This Century

As a writer working to educate about human overpopulation, it’s easy to get discouraged. Why? While there are success stories, the bad news often seems overwhelming.

The 300 Million-Immigrant Factor Facing America

With immigration’s continued onslaught prompted by the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, we added 100 million people to America from 1965 to 2007. We jumped from 194 million people to 300 million in 42 years. That same bill guarantees our country another 100 million immigrants within just 30 years.

The Enormity of Adding 138 Million People to America

In 1964, demographers counted 194 million people residing in the United States of America. No one had heard of acid rain, carbon footprint, gridlocked traffic or climate change.

But something happened. Our U.S. Congress passed the 1965 Immigration Reform Act that changed the annual inflow of immigrants from 175,000 each year to 1 million annually. Result: by October 2007, America had added 106 million people to reach a total population of 300 million. Within just 42 years, 106,000,000 people inserted themselves into America.
