- With the accelerating ramifications of overpopulation
manifesting all over the United States and the world, why does the Main
Stream Media avoid, evade and suppress any mention of the population equation
in America? For that matter-the world!
- The United States adds 8,100 people daily and a whopping
3.1 million annually-on its way to adding a net gain of 100 million within
25 years, 138 million within 40 years and it will double to 600 million
within 70 years. Clearly, it races toward its own catastrophe on multiple
- California adds 1,700 people daily along with 400 vehicles
to its already chocked highways and toxic air. That state expects to add
20 million within 30 years. Yet, no one blinks!
- While most Americans remain oblivious to our dilemma,
Chad Kline of Anchorage, Alaska understands it too clearly.
- Chad, why do Americans and their leaders avoid any conversation
about overpopulation in their own country?
- "I have tried to get this information out on about
10 different radio shows, and every time I am cut-off within seconds. Nobody
would believe the reactions and insane mutterings I get after trying to
say this on the radio. Have the all lost common sense and reason?
- "Can population density be so controversial and
intolerable of an issue so as to cause schizophrenic behavior at the mere
mention of it? Even to those that preach and espouse freedom, liberty,
controversial issues, and freedom-of-speech?
- "Ever-increasing population density breeds an ever-increasingly
dependent population farther and farther removed from providing for itself
without interfering with the lives of others, which breeds ever-increasing
authoritarian control-management power structures, which breed ever-increasing
rules and regulations and corruption; because power corrupts ... and that
aspect of humanity cannot be escaped.
- "And people keep wanting more and more of this endlessly
self-generating mutilation of freedom and bounty as solutions to the problems
these cycles have created in the 1st place, as if more and more of the
same hopeless cycles will someday come under the domain of altruistic systems
of men that will simultaneously provide freedom and bounty to everyone
- "It's an impossibility as well as a logical fallacy,
because if man was that altruistic and responsible, he wouldn't have entered
into the ever-increasing population-density/dependent-population/authoritarian
control-management power structures which have destroyed our freedom and
bounty in the 1st place.
- "The truth is that only a sovereign independent
agrarian people that can pass on the same freedoms and bounty for their
children to ensure a future of liberty, clean and plentiful bounty, and
- "Jefferson warned us that when our population reaches
the densities of Europe, our population will live within the same corrupt
systems as Europe. He understood what I am trying to say.
- "At this time, we have a population of idiots that
just breeds without care, and then dumps their offspring onto society and
tells them to acquire all the resources they need for life in the streets
and buildings of cities. It's a blatantly absurd and irresponsible behavior
that is doomed to despots, desperation, and failure.
- "I suggest putting a tattoo dot on the bottom of
the left big toe for a 1st child, the right big toe for a 2nd child, and
tubes tied after a 3rd. Simple solution to end all social/resource/freedom
issues! What do people want - 1000 endlessly evolving social ills or 1
simple solution? Death and lives of suffering results from this irresponsibility,
yet preventing it puts more fear into people than the consequences of inaction."
- Basic math of the world's resources:
- Of the earth's 57.5 million square miles of land, approximately
7.65 million square miles are arable. Figures of 12 million square miles
are when the earth's population was 6 billion (now past 7 billion), and
tend to include more semi-arable land. But it's a marginal difference -
8-12 million square miles. In geography, arable land (from Latin "arare,"
to plough) is an agricultural term, meaning land that can be used for growing
crops. It is distinct from cultivated land and includes jungles that are
not currently used for human purposes.
- With the earth population currently approaching 7.65
BILLION people, there is enough land to grow crops for 1000 people per
- In other words:
- One square mile = 5280ft x 5280ft, or 1760yds x 1760yds
= 42 x 42 yards
- For EACH PERSON IN THE WORLD NOW!
- And half of that is jungles and other land that would
require considerable money and effort to develop, and would do considerable
damage to the environment. For example, only about 1/3 of the arable land
on the African continent is used for growing crops, but immense tracts
of swamps and jungles would have to be cleared to bring the rest of the
arable land into productive use.
- So, this leaves:
- 1/2 of 1 square mile = 3733ft x 3733ft, or 1244yds x
1244yds = 30 x 30 yards for EACH PERSON IN THE WORLD NOW!
- "And this is not just for food! Consider that most
crops need to be grown for housing (trees), living (homes), clothing (cotton),
animal feed (corn and grasslands), waste, mineral resources, and many other
- "And arable land is currently being lost at the
rate of over 38,610 square miles per year! In addition to new housing,
and the expanse of civilization, a major element of arable land loss comes
from deforestation (starting in the Middle Ages in Europe as well as Asia).
Such deforestation continues to the present day primarily in tropical countries
by commercial over-exploitation of tropical forest. At times, deforestation
can be so extreme that it leads to desertification, or the total loss of
arable land, as has occurred in portions of the central highland plateau
of Madagascar following extensive slash-and-burn activity.
- "Land which is not arable usually has at least one
of the following deficiencies: no source of fresh water; too hot (desert);
too cold (arctic); too rocky; too mountainous; too salty; too rainy; too
snowy; too polluted; or too nutrient poor. Clouds may also block the sunlight
plants need for photosynthesis, reducing productivity. Plants can starve
without light. Starvation and nomadism often exists on marginally arable
land. Non-arable land is sometimes called wasteland, badlands, worthless
or no-man's land."
