We face the end of growth one way or the other. We choose to stabilize or Mother Nature will most certainly do it for us, rather brutally. Instead of endless economic growth, we must move toward Steady State Economics as proposed by Dr. Brian Czech at www.steadystate.org .

Africa, India, China and America form the most deadly population growth in the 21st century.  Africa will grow from nearly 1 billion today to 2.4 billion within 88 years.  Do any of the animal species in Africa stand a chance against such ravenous human onslaught?

Back in America, can California support its projected 20 million additional humans within 30 years?  How about Florida, Arizona and Colorado doubling their populations? Anyone excited about that?

The United States represents a 5'10" 400 pound obese guy endlessly eating more ice cream to reach 500 pounds. He suffers clogged arteries ( much like our cities' gridlocked traffic), he can hardly walk and he's suffering from diabetes. He keeps eating because he doesn't have a plan for living.  The United States continues its obesity-growth path without a plan, either.  Ultimately, this civilization will collapse whether we like it or not, plan for it or not, understand it or not.

What can you do to change the course of history?   Join these website organizations to form a collective voice on overpopulation in America and worldwide: www.PopulationPress.org , www.NumbersUSA.or g , www.CapsWeb.org , www.PopulationMedia.org , www.WorldPopulationBalance.org , www.WorldWatch.org , www.PostCarbonInstitute.org , www.howmany.org , www.PopulationMatters.org

In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video , "Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls" , Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG , graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation.  Take five minutes to see for yourself:

"Immigration by the numbers--off the chart " by Roy Beck

This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a word "Mind boggling!"  www.NumbersUSA.org
