NPG Commentary Published in Spring Issue of Social Contract Journal

The Spring 2014 issue of Social Contract Journal is out!  This issue’s theme is:  What Should America’s Immigration Policy Be?  NPG Deputy Director Tracy Canada contributed the piece “U.S. Immigration Policy – An Ever-Growing Challenge,” which highlights the real facts about U.S. immigration.  NPG Special Advisor David Simcox collaborated with Tracy to submit a revised version of his classic NPG Position paper Toward Negative Population Growth:  Cutting Legal Immigration by Four-Fifths.  (The fully revised paper will also be published and distributed to NPG members in the coming months.)  Be on the lookout for more of NPG commentary in the national media!

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?
