With so much media attention on the Presidential election, the candidates are talking about many of America’s everyday issues.
We’re hearing some serious debate about family planning, the environment, national security, jobs, immigration…
But there’s one issue no one is talking about, and it’s actually the common link between them all…
…U.S. population size and growth.
No problem facing our country can possibly be made better by adding more people to it.
It’s time to talk about what really matters.

World population, now over 7.3 billion, is predicted to rise to 9 billion by 2050, an increase of almost two billion, or 23%, in the short space of only 34 years from now.In the highly unlikely event that per capita greenhouse gas emissions could possibly be decreased by an equal percentage in such a short space of time (a blink of an eye) the total amount of worldwide emission would remain the same!
From this simple illustration it would appear that without drastically reducing the size of world population, there is no solution to the problem.None at all.So then why do our world leaders pretend that there is one?What is to be gained by pretending rather than by proposing a solution that would solve the problem – a reduction in the size of world population to not more than 1- 2 billion?
