As part of our broad educational efforts, NPG conducts an annual scholarship contest for college-aged students. Our latest 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 two 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.

Overburdened, stressed, and ready for change.
THE GOOD NEWS: YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
With out-of-control population size and growth, the United States is experiencing unprecedented problems. It seems that each year it takes less time to fly across the ocean and longer to drive to work! The roads, schools, and police forces cannot sustain an additional 2.9 million people each year. Our forests and farmlands are abandoned in favor of housing developments and strip malls.
THE REASON IS SIMPLE: OVERCROWDING 
The answer is easy: visit www.NPG.org 

Learn how you can help and become one of more than 30,000 Americans supporting Negative Population Growth. Together, we will ensure that our future generations will inherit a healthy and clean environment where all Americans can enjoy a quality standard of living.

Let’s face it – Less is more.
What if you were told that through limiting population growth, you would be supporting sustainability and a better future for the children of this world? What if you were told that limiting population growth isn’t a horrific, undemocratic tactic, but rather, a
smart and responsible decision? What if you were told that through stabilizing the population, we’d be able to limit consumption, lessen overcrowding, and feed more people?
Less is more.
We don’t need more voices, we just need to speak louder, and loudly advocate for societal change: for the good of the world and our children. If you want to stand up and learn more about the benefits of limiting population growth, visit Negative Population Growth at www.npg.org today.

There is no remedy that can possibly avert disastrous Climate Change and Global Warming unless we first address the problem of world population size and growth, and its impact on the size of the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.That means that we need to address the population size and growth of each nation, which together make up the world total.

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?
