Ad celebrating the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day for The Washington Times and the special Going Green section on April 20, 2012. This ad also appeared in The Washington Times on April 9th through April 16th.
Negative Population Growth came into existence only two years after the first Earth Day when a group of committed activists sought to ensure that future generations of Americans were not doomed to live, work and raise a family in a nation where too many people overwhelmed our environment and destroyed our quality of life.
As we all take a moment this Earth Day to applaud the giant leaps mankind has made in identifying our environmental challenges and finding positive solutions to them, it is critical to remember that population growth still remains a giant threat to our nation.
Today, with our country on the path to absorb 130 million more people in the next 40 years, NPG’s mission remains more formidable than ever. Yet with the help of thousands of members, our activism continues to grow and we continue to expand our educational efforts to reach all Americans – especially today’s young people – regarding the critical need to halt and reverse population growth.
We invite you to celebrate our 40th Anniversary by signing on as our newest member. Your contribution will help us continue to address today’s population challenges, force our nation’s leaders to advance responsible population policies, and build a better future where our children and grandchildren will be able to enjoy a decent quality of life.
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?
