Exponential Population Growth and
how the U.S. and the World will end (up).
WHERE WE'RE HEADED, -- by Hal Netkin

The objectives of Environmentalists to purify and recycle the planet's resources are meaningless unless zero population growth is at the top of their list.

The most noted environmental group, the Sierra Club, had in its earlier years put zero population growth as its main goal. But the Sierra Club has caved in to political correctness driven by money on the issue of immigration. They no longer oppose massive immigration (legal or illegal).

The U.S. Census Bureau says that the current annual rate of growth in the U.S. is 0.9 percent which is expected to rise. But using the current growth rate, the U.S. population which is now at 312,838,706 will double in only 78 years to 625,677,412.

Most of the U.S. growth rate is driven by massive immigration mostly by uneducated non-White Hispanics who have the highest fertility rate which may even increase the population growth rate from its current level 0.9 percent. If the U.S. survives nuclear war our troubles won't be over. Immigration will do us in.

Some pro-immigration advocates point to the vast open areas that one sees when peering out of a coast to coast airliner's window as ample space to accommodate high immigration levels for years to come.

But sufficient space isn't the only requirement to enable the addition of millions more to our population -- although exponential population growth will ultimately cause the the U.S. to run out of living space.

The fate of the future of our planet can be determined easily with simple arithmetic. Even so, virtually all of our elected politicians either haven't got a clue about where we are heading and most are willing to sacrifice the future of America for votes. To understand this, please watch this streaming video presentation, Arithmetic, Population and Energy by Dr. Albert Bartlett.
