- In a recent story by Josh Gordon, Sydney Morning Herald,
he reported that, "Population growth is inevitable."
- Did that "choice" or "resignation to fate"
work out for the Chinese, Indians, Bangladeshis, Africans, Mexicans and
other overpopulated areas on our finite planet? Did it work out for people
living in 60 mile traffic jams last month in China? How about the 22 million
people living in Mexico City where every breath equals toxic poisoning
of their lungs? What about the 18 hour gridlock traffic in Chicago, Houston,
Dallas and Los Angeles? How about the 'crush' of humanity in overloaded,
bloated and horrifically unhealthy cities around the planet? What about
the 80 to 100 species every day suffering extinction worldwide because
of human encroachment on their habitat?
- How's the quality of life working out for 18 million
humans starving to death annually from population overload? What about
the 100 million sharks killed by humans every year around the world-driving
that creature to the brink of extinction? How about water shortages, species
extinction and climate destabilization via carbon footprint? Anyone connecting
- Any Australian with an IQ exceeding two digits understands
that you cannot allow even one extra person to fly in an airplane beyond
the 'carrying capacity' of the aircraft. You cannot add one more person
into a pool that exceeds its design. A bathroom can only hold so many
people at one time.
- Australia enjoys an amazing, and vanishing lifestyle
as well as quality of life-with every added person to its already parched
and dry continent. Why hasn't anyone asked the basic question?
- How many immigrants can Australia import before it too
transforms into the same overpopulated and unsustainable civilization that
the immigrants flee? Dr. Otis Graham said it best, ""Most Western
elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that
adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global
brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared
by all-ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet."
Quoted from: Unguarded Gates
- ''Given the powerful global forces driving the Australian
economy, net immigration figures well in excess of that low number are
probably inescapable,'' the briefing said.
- Hogwash! Twaddle! Balderdash!
- Australians possess the ability to defend and preserve
their civilization. It's called 'common sense' ; "taking action
from lessons of the past" ; "using your votes to move the country
toward a viable future."
- It matters little where the 'growthists' need more workers
or the corporate tycoons demand higher profits. If your environment swirls
into the toilet and your quality of life degrades down to that of a third
world refugee camp-what have you gained by all the money in the world?
- Has anyone in Australia heard about "quality of
life"? It stems from living within the carrying capacity of the land.
If you overload it, Harvard scholar and biologist E. O. Wilson said, ""The
raging monster upon the land is population growth. In its presence, sustainability
is but a fragile theoretical construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties
of nations are not due to people, but to poor ideology and land-use management
- Can Sydney, Perth or Melbourne grow without consequences?
What happens when they experience their first 10 mile traffic jam, 20
mile traffic jam and worse? What about the number of accidents guaranteed
to occur from too many cars overloading the highway systems? How much
dirty air can your lungs tolerate?
- In the end, what positive points will an added 10 million
people bring to Australia? Will it lower water costs and create more wells?
Will it lower the cost of homes and goods? Will it lower the 'carbon
footprint' that will allow our oceans to recover? Can 10 million more
people create a healthier climate for humans and animals in Australia?
Will the cost of a gallon of gas decline? Fat chance!
- U.S. demographic expert Dr. Albert Bartlett, www.albartlett.org ,
asks the definitive question: "Can you think of any problem
in any area of human endeavor on any scale, from microscopic to global,
whose long-term solution is in any demonstrable way aided, assisted, or
advanced by further increases of population, locally, nationally, or globally."
- As I traveled throughout all the great cities in the
world, I can answer unequivocally: added population creates unsolvable
problems with irreversible consequences.
- "A simple look at the upward path of global greenhouse
emissions indicates we will continue to squeeze the trigger on the gun
we have put to our own head." Eugene Linden, The Winds of Change:
Climate, Weather and the Destruction of Civilization
- No! Population growth must not be 'inevitable'. Australia
may choose! Choose to move toward a viable, sustainable and positive civilization
that allows humans, plants and animals the ability to pursue their lives
as well as you expect to live yours.
