2012 Student Poster Contest Winners

NPG is happy to announce the winners of our 2012 Student Poster Contest. Of the hundreds of posters submitted from very talented and perceptive students from across the country, our team of judges, consisting of NPG staff and advisors, determined these posters to be the very best of the entries.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s participation in this effort, from the advisors who helped design the project, to the teachers who encouraged their students to participate, the students themselves, and especially our generous NPG supporters who helped finance the distribution of contest material and awards. We hope to be able to run a similar contest on a regular basis in the future.

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?
