Part 6: 80,000 chemicals injected into air, land, water 24/7

 

As this series focuses on the United States adding 100 million people within 24 years, you may feel an uneasy disquietude as the facts continue piling up like cow manure in a Montfort beef feed lot, but no matter how terrible the odors, you’re making the connections on overpopulation in America.  Our sheer numbers of humans force us to move into dangerous territory as to…

PART 5: WHAT CONSTITUTES OVERPOPULATION IN AMERICA? TWO MAJOR IDENTIFIERS

By Frosty Wooldridge

"Which is the greater danger - nuclear warfare or the population explosion? The latter absolutely!” said famed writer Isaac Asimov.  “To bring about nuclear war, someone has to DO something; someone has to press a button. To bring about destruction by overcrowding, mass starvation, anarchy, the destruction of our most cherished values—there is no need to do anything. We need only do nothing except what comes naturally—and breed. And how easy it is to…

The 7th billion human on planet Earth: Colorado's predicament

By Frosty Wooldridge

 

On the last day of October,  demographic experts watched the 7th billion human land on planet Earth.   Humanity adds another one billion of its species every 12 years on its way to reaching a projected high of 10.2 billion by 2050. (Source: United Nations population projections, May 2011)

 

What does that mean for Colorado and the United States of America? How can we mitigate our carbon footprint that destabilizes our environment, ecological…

Mother Nature will reveal herself rather drastically

Mother Nature Reveals Her Energy Descent Action Plan

 Introduction: It seems that we are under the impression that Mother Nature will award us points for effort. If we do our best and try living less unsustainably, she will forgive us our sins and let us stay in the game because, well, surely she realizes that we are something special---and should get special treatment. But the truth is, this lady is not for turning. She is one…

Overpopulation in Colorado and America: the last taboo

Re: “Packing in the population” by Joey Bunch, Denver Post, 12/22/10

 

The recent U.S. Census figures show the United States continuing at breakneck speed to add another 100 million people by 2035 and 138 million by 2050.  In the face of growing water shortages, energy crises,

environmental degradation, overloaded cities and resource depletion—such papers as the Denver Post featured a front page extravaganza announcing,…

PART 4: WHAT CONSTITUTES OVERPOPULATION IN AMERICA? LACK OF ENOUGH WATER!

By Frosty Wooldridge



Re: Colorado NPR report—“11.5 billion gallon shortage annually predicted” 12/1/09



Ironically, everyone demands cleaner air, but don’t stop growth. Stop gridlock traffic, but don’t touch growth. Stop species extinction, but never end growth. Let’s stop climate change, but leave growth alone. Stop acid rain, but don’t stop growth. Work on alternative energy, but don’t stop growth. We insist on lower energy and water prices, but don’t stop growth and… Continue

PART 3: WHAT CONSTITUTES OVERPOPULATION IN AMERICA? SPECIES EXTINCTION ACCELERATING

By Frosty Wooldridge



As the United accelerates toward adding another 100 million people within 25 years, its citizens neglect growing consequences easily witnessed in other overpopulated countries. Americans assume they can continue unlimited expansion because, “We’ve always considered growth as the mainstay of our prosperity.”



Thus, Americans think ‘endless increase’ as a normal aspect of their daily lives. Their paradigm cannot and will not be tolerated by Mother Nature… Continue

PART 2: WHAT CONSTITUTES OVERPOPULATION IN AMERICA? EXCEEDING CARRYING CAPACITY

By Frosty Wooldridge



Little known and always avoided, the United States faces THE single greatest issue of its existence in the 21 st century. "What is it?" you ask. Top environmental experts respond, "Overpopulation!" We ignore, evade and suppress this issue at every level in America. Innumerates as defined by Dr. Albert Bartlett, ( www.albartlett.org) insist we can grow forever without any consequences. Citizens pursue their daily tasks… Continue

PART 1: WHAT CONSTITUTES OVERPOPULATION IN AMERICA? SUSTAINABILITY

By Frosty Wooldridge



Little known and always avoided, the United States faces THE single greatest issue of its existence in the 21st century. “What is it?” you ask. Top environmental experts respond, “Overpopulation!” We ignore this issue at every level in America. Citizens pursue their daily tasks without understanding the ramifications of this civilization adding another 100 million people within 25 years, and doubling to 600 million people within 60 to 70 years.

PART 18: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—BIODIVERSITY AND HUMAN SURVIVAL

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 18: Biodiversity and human survival



As you follow this series, I hope you understand that all of us and our children face this sobering future—IF, and only IF we allow our population to grow by an astounding 100 million people as well as the rest of the planet growing by another three billion. It’s not in the cards and it’s not a fait de compli.



In other words, it’s not a done deal.



We can change it; we must change it; our… Continue

PART 17: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—SYSTEMIC CHEMICALIZATION OF WATER AND FOOD

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 17: Pollution of our planet, chemicals, food



An astounding 42 percent of rivers, lakes and streams in the United States remain so polluted that humans cannot enjoy any contact activity with them.



“The industrial world treats its drinking water to get rid of the pathogens, but we are forced more and more to recycle it,” said Grant. “The idea of drinking processed sewage is initially a shock, but we are getting used to it as we press harder on… Continue

PART 16: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—POLLUTION OF ALL KINDS

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 16: Pollution of our planet



Americans pride themselves with their clean water laws, air pollution laws and environmental protection agencies. Everyone ‘talks’ about their ‘green’ actions and practices. However, they might be surprised to note that a scant 30 percent of citizens recycle with any regularity. No matter how ‘clean’ they might think their air, over 150 million Americans breathe toxic air in cities across the nation.

PART 15: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—RUNNING OUT OF ENERGY THAT DRIVES CIVILIZATION

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 15: Fossil fuel energy--finite



Every day, you hear companies, governors and newscasters yelping about our emerging ‘green energy’ and ‘green technology’ and ‘alternative energy’.



Let’s look at our self-delusion more closely.



In order to drive cars, boats, planes and fuel industry, Americans burn 20 million barrels of oil daily while the rest of the world burns 62 million barrels. That equals 82 million barrels of oil every 24… Continue

PART 13: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—YOU AIN’T GOIN’ NOWHERE WITHOUT WATER

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 13: Water, meat and fish



If you look at California today, you see more filtered water outlets than anywhere in the world. More people buy bottled water than anywhere else in the USA. However, water diminishes with the addition of 1,700 people added 24/7. At 38 million, California expects to add close to 20 million within 30 years. At 1,700 added net gain per day, that equals 620,000 a year. In three decades, well, work the math!



California… Continue

PART 12: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—WE CANNOT FOOL MOTHER NATURE MUCH LONGER

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 12: Genetically modified foods



The human race continues thinking it can fool Mother Nature without consequences. Let me tell you folks, no one in the final analysis fools her-not then, not now, not ever! She will kick our butts so far down the bowling alley of the 21 st century-it will make our heads spin and give us a heck of a headache-especially our children.



We continue driving cars that burn oil 84 million barrels 24/7 that wreaks havoc… Continue

PART 11: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—OUR SILENT PREDICAMENT

By Frosty Wooldridge



Part 11: Silence across the land, food, fertilizers, top soil



Most Americans cannot dream nor do they give a second thought to the United States adding 100 million people within 25 years. For some mysterious reason, few connect the dots on water shortages currently manifesting in Florida, California and Arizona. Other states like Colorado and Georgia find themselves in similar situations. Americans don’t quite ‘get’ the accelerating ramifications of… Continue

PART 10: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—TOO MANY PEOPLE

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 10: too many people, too little water, too little energy, too little resources



In a brilliantly written book, Too Many People by Lindsey Grant, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Environment and Population Affairs, he brought a lifetime of global experience into his profoundly direct book.



No matter how much the mainstream media, which includes all major television networks, radio and print—do, to avoid, ignore and evade the… Continue

PART 9: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—EXPAND INTO WHAT?

By Frosty Wooldridge



Part 9: As small towns expand into big towns, the costs, the pain, the results ain’t so hot, innumerates and idiots share the same bed



This week, in the Denver Post, a journalist wrote a story that celebrated the addition of 600,000 people to the Denver area in the last two years. Mind you, that Denver suffers 2.25 million residents and a toxic Brown Cloud loaded with nastiness for everyone’s lungs with every breath. Denverites must endure endless… Continue

PART 14: OVERPOPULATION IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA—CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION

By Frosty Wooldridge

Part 14: Climate destabilization



Anchor Brian Williams at NBC reported that Glacier National Park plummeted from 128 glaciers at the beginning of the last century to less than 10 today. Those last 10 won’t last much longer. Why? Warm weather and more of it on the way. The same goes for glaciers in the Himalaya, Andes, Rockies and Alps.



You may hear a great deal on climate change one way or the other, but glaciers don’t lie—they melt when the… Continue
