FOR OVER 40 YEARS, WE’VE REMAINED COMMITTED TO AMERICA’S FUTURE!
We Continue to Need Your Help to Meet Our Goals
Since 1972, Negative Population Growth has used its leadership to focus Americans on the critical need to confront and resolve our nation’s most critical problem – population growth. The originator of Earth Day, the late Senator Gaylord Nelson, idenfied forging a sustainable society as the fundamental issue of our time. For over four decades, Negative Population Growth, Inc. has remained committed to achieving that goal.
With a skyrocketing debt, a decaying infrastructure, increasing unemployment, shortages of clean water and energy, and worsening environmental problems, the evidence is all around us: the U.S. urgently needs a smaller, truly sustainable population.
Today, as America’s premier organization dedicated to addressing population size and growth, 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 population growth.
The U.S. is on track to add more than 83 million people by mid-century. 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?
