MORE STUDENTS SPEAK OUT…
NPG’s ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST WINNERS
As part of our broad educational efforts, NPG conducts an annual scholarship contest for college-aged students. A recent contest invited students to submit text that could be used to create a print advertisement in order to recruit more Americans to our efforts. We are pleased to release the text of three of the winners for your review and we strongly encourage you to visit our website, www.npg.org, where you will find a wealth of information relating to population, immigration and environmental issues. We also sincerely hope you will join our ranks as we continue our work to educate more and more Americans regarding what we deem to be the most critical issue of our time – population size and growth.
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?
