308.7 MILLION PEOPLE AND COUNTING…
And America’s Still On Track to Grow to 400 Million People in Just a Few More Decades!
When the U.S. Census Bureau released the 2010 Census numbers a few months ago there was little national discussion as to what they mean for America’s future. That’s terribly unfortunate because the “silent”
crisis of population growth will only grow worse the longer it is ignored.
The final numbers revealed that our nation added 27.3 million people in the past ten years. That’s millions of additional people crowding our cities and communities, polluting our nation’s waters, paving over valuable farmland, destroying our forests, and competing for America’s limited resources. Simply put, overpopulation is the biggest threat to a safe environmental future.
Bit by bit we are allowing population growth to destroy our quality of life for our children and grandchildren.
The release of the new Census numbers offers everyone the perfect opportunity to focus our nation’s attention to find workable solutions and take the critical steps necessary in order to slow, halt and eventually reverse our nation’s population growth.
This year, Negative Population Growth celebrates our 39th anniversary working in partnership with tens of thousands of americans who understand the dangers of Too Many People. We’ll be working diligently to expand our valuable educational projects to get more students involved in the fight to protect their future; fund our important and informative research; take our message to millions more citizens to encourage them to join in this battle; and put pressure on all elected leaders to work together to enact a realistic and workable national population policy.

SAY NO TO 450 MILLION PEOPLE BY 2050!
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?
