THE NEXT ADDED 100 MILLION AMERICANS


Part 1: Consequences of Human Tsunami

By Frosty Wooldridge

According to Katie Couric, Brian Williams and Charles Gibson, the United States surpassed 300,000,000 people by the end of October. Their current demographic predictions, based on accelerating growth levels, show America adding 100 million people by 2040.

For those asleep at the wheel—that’s 34 years from now—a blink in time.

To place this kind of horrific growth rate into perspective, it resembles a human tsunami. Much like nature’s earthquakes that occurred beneath the surface last year, the wave of energy sped under the ocean for hours and hundreds of miles without notice. Once it hit the shoreline in Sri Lanka, it created cataclysmic devastation and tens of thousands of deaths. Why? No one suspected it. No one took action to save themselves. They didn’t know it was coming. Once it hit, everyone became victims! The tsunami rendered a human tragedy of epic proportions!

The U.S. Senate in May, 2006 passed S.B. 2611 that doubled current immigration levels from 1.0 million to 2.0 million annually. It increased work visas by tens of thousands. It continued allowance for millions in chain migration. It allowed millions more in anchor babies. The senate bill did nothing to stop illegal immigration estimated by Time Magazine in a feature story on September 20, 2004, that showed three million people crossing into America illegally every year. It did not stop the 50,000 annual diversity visas that allow that many people to come to America from the poorest countries in the world. It added more visas that allow more foreigners to gain jobs and anchor babies in America that assures they never return to their home countries.

The bill did not take into account that millions of people arriving from Third World countries do not change their large family propensities of six to eight and more children per couple.

What does that mean to American citizens? What about our overloaded cities? Overwhelmed schools? How about our water, farm land, energy, air quality, food sources, species habitat, and dozens of other issues? Is there any way to stop it? Does anyone understand the ominous consequences?

In this 10 part series published on Thursdays, this column addresses what we as a nation face if we allow this ‘human tsunami’ to crash upon our shores. It addresses every aspect of our society, environment, sustainability, culture, language and viability as a civilization.

The first question we must all ask ourselves is: can anyone name a single advantage to adding 100 million people to America in 34 years? From Third World countries? What will it do to our society? Do we want to grow to 1,000,000,000 people? Why? If not, at what point will we stabilize growth?

What has a 2.4 billion person population done to India or China? Do you think their citizens enjoy the standards of living and quality of life we enjoy in the United States? Not even close!

In 1900, the world population reached 1.6 billion; today, it exceeds 6.4 billion; by mid century it’s expected to grow to a low of 9.0 to as high as 9.8 billion. (Source: Population Reference Bureau)

Name one advantage to adding 3,000,000,000 more people to the globe? Is there some cosmic reason? Reasonable religious reason? Any rational reason? Any sane purpose?

Already, according to March 14, 2005 Time Magazine, eight million people starve to death annually. Over 35 percent of humanity does not have clean drinking water. Species extinction exceeds thousands annually. What is it that we hope to accomplish by adding another 3.0 billion people to the planet with the consequences already raining down on us with current population levels?
