If you continue reading this series, and you don't think we're in trouble-- I seize this opportunity to bring your attention to other specialists who know we're in trouble. 

They've seen what I've seen.  They know what I know.   They understand; if you 'see' it, you comprehend it.   If you haven't, then, it's easy to deny or ignore it.

Refresher: the "official" U.S. Census Bureau told us that we 'celebrated' three hundred million Americans in October 2006.  Meanwhile, Vanderbilt University reported the actual number exceeded 327 million.  

In the U.S., we overload demographic saturation levels more than the average voter realizes.

Would our government intentionally understate demographic numbers?

Nothing about the next added 100 million Americans can be ignored.  When the "new folks" manifest upon our shores, it's not like you can wave a magic wand to make them vanish.

Lawrence Smith, President of the Population Institute, wrote for the Providence Journal on the overloaded populations developing around the world. 

Speaking at a symposium in the National Press Club last July, Smith said, "The eminent environmentalist Lester Brown said he was pondering a question I don't believe he, or anyone else, really wants answered:

'How many failed nation-states would it take to make a failed world?' "

"The World Bank, which prefers to call them 'fragile nation-states,' recently identified 26 countries that pose some of the world's "toughest development challenges, noting that all face similar hurdles:

ü      Weak security

ü      Fractured societal relations

ü      Corruption

ü      Breakdown in the rule of law

ü      Lack of mechanisms for generating legitimate power and authority."

These countries already experience massive human die-offs from famine and disease that we talked about earlier in this 100-million series.  Refresher: eight million people die every year from starvation globally.
