- By writing about severe consequences heading, like Hurricane
Katrina, toward not just New Orleans, but every state in America--readers
chastised me. They questioned past titles like, Consequences of Too Many
People; Too Many People, Too Few Solutions; and America's Coming Overpopulation
Crisis,. They felt the columns, themes did not apply to them or wouldn't
happen to them. They are correct"it won't happen to them"it
will happen to their children.
- If our nation keeps thinking like the people of New Orleans--that
it won't happen to them--think again. Look at millions living in the earthquake
arena of California. It is not a question of if, but when the 9.5 scale
quake hits. New Orleans was not a question of if, but when. Same goes
for those living in Florida's hurricane alley. If you travel west, you
see people building homes on the cliffs of California when contractors
told them that rains would cause slides. They built anyway and look what
happened the last two years during the rainy season. What about those
building in fire areas of California? Did you not see their homes burn
in the past two years?
- What I seek to convey to the American public stems from
my bicycle travels on six continents and through the most densely populated
countries of the world. I've seen the misery, suffering, debasement of
human living conditions and I've witnessed that once human numbers exceeded
carrying capacity, all life suffers. Examine China, India, Africa and
Bangladesh for starters. They grow worse by the day. They can't solve
their numbers once manifested.
- Several readers ask if I follow Thomas Malthus, "Essay
on the Principle of Population, or, they don't agree with me based on the
size of the United States. Many who pursue a religious course, say God
will provide. What they neglect to realize is, according to the March
14, 2005 issue of Time Magazine, 8-10 million people starve to death around
the planet annually. Therefore, it is not an issue of Malthus or God; it
is an issue of a growing reality that humanity is outstripping the planet's
ability to feed, water and clothe the growing human storm, on this planet.
More sobering, humans add 85 million net gain annually on our way from
6.4 billion to 9.8 (high estimate by Population Reference Bureau and supporting
estimates by http://www.balance.org/www.balance.org
) billion around 2050.
- Anyone can be in denial all they want, but like Hurricane
Katrina, reality will strike when the storm hits. In other words, those
that scoff at me can sit back just like five days before Katrina hit, and
drink coffee on the back porch. But when it hits and you didn't evacuate,
you are one of the victims. And, as Time and Newsweek graphically reported,
our children. We failed the most innocent of all by our lack of action.
- In this two part column, I quote many brilliant people
who know this population Katrina storm, is headed our way. At the end,
I add my own quote to the fast approaching crisis of overpopulation.
- When I talk about the crisis of overpopulation in America,
plenty of already manifested realities sober any rational mind. The quality
of our lives deteriorates daily as we add five million people annually
to our shores. The standard of living drops like a brick with millions
of added people. But let me quote those who know more and are the leaders
from the past and present.
- "We must prevent human tragedy rather than run around
trying to save our selves after an event has already occurred. Unfortunately,
history clearly shows that we arrive at catastrophe by failing to meet
the situation, by failing to act when we should have acted. The opportunity
passes us by and the next disaster is always more difficult and compounded
than the last one. Eleanor Roosevelt
- You may not like Eleanor, but her words ring true. What
if George Bush had been a competent president and installed a competent
man as director of FEMA? Instead, he appointed an incompetent man, Mike
Brown, who was fired from a ten year job as president of an Arabian horse
association. How was he supposed to lead a major federal agency with his
good ole boy, connections? Bush's ineptness and his own incompetence expressed
itself in Brown who manifested incompetence before and during Katrina.
- We have three more years of Bush's incompetence at his
position as the leader of the free world. Bush manifests the "Peter
Principle (most persons in corporate America rise to their highest level
of incompetence; once there, they make everyone under them miserable, and
they can't grab the reigns). Bush lacks the intellectual or cognitive
ability to grow out of his incompetence. He completely screwed off as
a high school and college student with a C- average which set up his incompetence.
You can expect more blunders in the next three years that will wreck havoc
on our nation, our economy and our lives.
- Eleanor is right on the money and we will pay the consequences
for such observable incompetence as Bush muddles through his second term.
When it comes to the immigration invasion of four million people crashing
onto our shores annually, Bush doesn't have a clue as to the critical impact
and danger to future generations due to sheer numbers. All those he appointed
reflect his incompetence. He's like a blind watchmaker.
- So what do other brighter minds say about the worsening
crisis of overpopulation in America?
- "Immigration of the kind and on the scale America
has had for the last three decades is in effect, a recipe for cultural
suicide and squandering of a rich national heritage. Dr. Lee Marland
- Look at that quote and tell me you don't feel it in your
community with all the illegal aliens and non absorbing legal immigrants
who can't and won't speak English, but use and abuse our system for their
own purposes. Tell me you think our country can continue with dozens of
other languages and Stone Age cultures that don't assimilate into what
is America as a First World country.
- "The two-generation indirect immigration, i.e.,
including the births to foreign-born mothers, explained the incredible
98 percent of California's growth between 1990 and 2000. Dr. Leon Bouvier
- Anyone want to move to the beautiful Los Angeles area
any time soon? I would need my head examined for sanity if I wanted to
move into that grinding traffic, three million illegal alien and nine million
legal immigrant quagmire. Immigration provoked growth from 17 million in
1965 to over 36 million today. They suffer gridlock, air pollution, crime,
disease, mountains of trash, Mexico's slums and a non English speaking
populace, which is more anti-American than Castro.
- As you sit reading this column, are the lights turning
on? Are you connecting the dots? Do you see the growing calamity about
to visit, possibly not you, but definitely your children here in the once
limitless USA? Exploding gas prices present harbingers of our future.
Air pollution grows thicker with every added person. Farm land diminishes
as it is poured over with asphalt and concrete. I spent the summer bicycling
4,000 miles through Europe. Gas costs $6.00 a gallon and as high as $8.00
a gallon in places. Forests have vanished under farmland. People live,
not in homes, but are stuffed into apartments. They drive automobiles
that feature only two doors for the driver and passenger and their feet
are almost touching the bumper of the Smart cars"that look like upside
down teacups. If you crash, sorry, you,re toast.
- In the second part of this series, we will pursue the
growing realities of ignoring the current population growth of America
at five million annually. When you take five million and multiply by 60
years, you add 300 million or a doubling of the US population from 295
million to 600 million. If you think the gridlock, air pollution, acid
rain, diminishing cropland, congestion, failing health systems, global
warming, species extinction is bad now, you ain't seen nothing yet! In
other words, Population Katrina will hit all 50 states in 2060. But even
before that date, it will degrade all our lives with too many people, shrinking
freedoms, diminished resources, water wars, diseases, maddening traffic
and worsening air pollution. It's going to get ugly, really ugly!
- I,m going to add my quote to all these other people.
THE MORE EXTREME OUR NUMBERS, THE MORE EXTREME OUR CHILDREN'S CONSEQUENCES.
