Today is World Population Day…
…and Earth will add over 200,000 people by the time it’s over.
According to the Census Bureau, America will grow by an average of 1 person every 11 seconds today. And by this time next year, we’ll have added over 2.6 million people – roughly the population of the city of Chicago.
Since our founding in 1972, NPG has worked to demonstrate how population growth creates a domino effect on our fragile environment – adding to greenhouse gas emissions and worsening climate change (not to mention pollution, resource depletion, and wildlife habitat loss). We have also drawn the link between population growth and increased strain on our nation’s overburdened infrastructure.
On World Population Day, NPG is gearing up for action. With your help, we’re working to share the REAL FACTS about overpopulation.
The consequences of U.S. population growth are all around us – and they are continuing to grow more severe. Yet our elected officials continue to cave in to the self-serving agendas of the open-border lobby, special interest groups, big business, and pro-growth enthusiasts. This is why it is so important that we have your full support right now.
YOU are the key to preserving America’s future!
So please, get involved today!
What better way to recognize World Population Day?
We must act NOW to slow, halt, and eventually reverse our growth – until we reach a much smaller, truly sustainable size. With your support, we will continue to advocate policies which work to reduce U.S. population size and growth.
Thank you for your loyal support of NPG.
Help NPG continue our fight to
protect America’s future!
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?
