Today, We Continue To Need Your Help To Meet Them!
For 40 years Negative Population Growth has used its leadership to focus Americans on the critical need to confront and resolve one of our nation’s most critical problems – population growth.
With a skyrocketing debt, a decaying infrastructure, increasing shortages of clean energy and water, and other critical environmental problems, the evidence is all around us that the U.S. urgently needs a smaller, truly sustainable, population.
Today, as America’s premier organization dedicated to addressing population issues, NPG continues to drive the debate on the critical need for our country to create a responsible national population policy.
We are working to educate the American people, elected leaders at all levels of government, and especially students who will have to live with the consequences of today’s reckless population policies.
The U.S. is on track to add more than 125 million people in the next 40 years. It is essential that we speak NOW with an even louder and more forceful voice to halt and reverse today’s disastrous and destructive population policies!
We invite you to join us as we continue our journey into the next decade and beyond. Please visit our website, www.npg.org, to sign on as our newest member today.
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?
