U.S. Population Still Trending Towards Well Over 1/2 Billion People, Possibly Even One Billion People by the Year 2100 - DRRI Part 13

Even with the defeat of the Senate's mass immigration bill, the U.S. population is still dangerously trending towards well over one-half billion people and possibly over one billion people by 2100.  As you can see from the Census Bureau's Population Clock (U.S. and World Population Clock) the U.S. population is approaching an official population of 320 million people.  Now take a look at the U.S. Census Bureau's own population projection chart (pdf file or txt filewhich the Obama Administration is hiding deep within the U.S. Census Bureau's website - I can't even find it anymore in the Census Bureau website, but I luckily made my own copies quite a while ago.  You can see that the current U.S. population is between the "highest series" and  "middle series" projections.  And when you add in the very moderate estimate of another 10 million unknown and uncounted U.S. residents, this will put the real U.S. population at around 330 million which puts us right on the "highest series" trend line leading to well over 1 billion people by 2100.

Obviously the Obama Administration and the promoters of mass immigration know that when the American people see the real population projections, the majority of Americans will be horrified and will demand a stop to any further promotion of mass immigration into the U.S.  This is why the Administration and the mass immigration lobby never mention the population projections for their schemes to increase immigration.  They also never mention that there is no way they can guarantee that there will be enough resources to provide all of these millions of new citizens (along with the citizens already here) a good middle class all-American life.  They know that the truth will be unacceptable to the vast majority of the electorate.

Many sustainability experts, (such as Malcomb Potts and Alan Weisman) believe that the long-term sustainable population level of the U.S. is roughly around 150 million people, and yet the elite of both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are pushing for higher immigration levels that will push us to well over one-half billion people and possibly up to over a billion people by early in the next century. This is absolutely ridiculous when you consider that many scientists and other experts believe that the long-term sustainable human population for the entire Earth is roughly 1.5 to 2 billion people.

The promoters of mass immigration would like to at least double legal immigration levels to around 2 million people per year.  But what they really want are levels as high as 5 or even 10 million people per year which will easily push us towards one billion people in less than a century, within the lifetime of many of today's toddlers.

THE SOLUTION:  By decreasing our future yearly immigration to 500,000 people or less per year, we have a chance of peaking our population under 1/2 billion people and then reducing the U.S. population to a more sustainable level within the next several decades.  This can be achieved with a pathway to citizenship for the people already in the USA and it can be achieved with the unification of people living outside of the U.S. with their immediate families in the U.S.  Democrats for Reasonable and Responsible Immigration provides a plan to achieve this goal.  It's time for the second great immigration wave to the USA to come to an end.

U. S. Environmental Leaders that Support the Senate's Mass Immigration Bill Should Resign or Be Fired - DRRI Part 12

SOME QUESTIONS FOR AMERICAN ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS:  How can you claim to be environmentalists and conservationists, supporters of habitat preservation, new wilderness areas, preserving farmland, conserving natural resources and stopping urban sprawl, and yet also support an immigration bill that definitely puts the USA's population on the trend line towards more than doubling, possibly tripling or even quadrupling in the next several decades or so?  How can you say that you support a sustainable USA while simultaneously supporting a bill that will massively increase the population of one of the most materialistically aggressive, resource-devouring nations in the world?    

The answer is that these environmental leaders are hypocrites trying to have the best of both worlds and trying to make everybody happy in order to increase membership in their organizations.  They want to come across as great environmentalists and conservationists while simultaneously putting out the standard politically correct message that millions of people are welcome to immigrate yearly to the USA - American environmental leaders certainly don't want to be accused of being "against people" by not supporting mass immigration!

SORRY, YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!  You environmental leaders that support the mass immigration bill are simply a bunch of glorified public relations people.  You can either be real environmentalists and conservationists or you can be lobbyists for the mass immigration bill, but you can't be both.  Why in heaven's name would you support a bill that launches the USA in the direction of having a population similar to that of India or China?  Are you crazy?  Please, do the decent thing and resign from your leadership positions in the Environmental Movement, or otherwise you should be fired.  IT'S DEFINITELY TIME FOR YOU TO GO!

Frackers, We Keep Telling You, Keep Your Industry Out of the Beartooth Front!

A Stormy Day on The Beartooth Front (Click on photo to enlarge it)
I'll repeat the message to you one more time:  Most of the people of the Beartooth Front that know anything about hydraulic fracturing do not want fracking on the Front.  We do not want your drilling activities shaking our homes.  We do not want your large, ugly, noisy, drilling sites despoiling our land and our view.  We do not want to see your flares around our countryside.  We do not want the stinky air that comes with your business.  We do not want the road damage that you'll cause to our current roads and highways and we do not want the massive building of new dirt roads over our countryside to your drilling sites.  We do not want the huge increase in traffic that comes with your industry.  We do not want the uncontrolled growth and increased crime that comes with your industry.  We do not want the increased risk of earthquakes that comes with your industry.  We do not want the increase in air, land and water pollution that your industry inevitably brings.

We do not appreciate the fact that your industry leaks large amounts of methane (a potent greenhouse gas) into the atmosphere.  We do not appreciate the fact that your industry will be using massive amounts of our wonderful, clean water.  We do not appreciate the disrespect for the land that your industry exhibits.  We do not appreciate the way that you've rigged the Montana government completely in your favor. We do not appreciate the propaganda of your PR people while you simultaneously treat the Beartooth Front like a Third World country in the 1950's that you can come into and plunder as you please.  This is America and millions of people are boiling mad about the way that your industry comes into areas and throws its weight around.

The people of the Beartooth Front are not the generally compliant citizens of the oil fields in Texas.  The people of the Beartooth Front are not the overwhelmed people of the Bakken.  The people of the Beartooth Front are independent, thoughtful Montanans and people from all over the country and the world who love the Front.  Frackers, you're dealing with the same people that recently denied a permit for an ugly cell phone tower that would mar the view near Roscoe.  Do you think that those people are going to calmly and idly stand by while you build hundreds, possibly thousands of your ugly, dirty, smelly drilling rigs on the Front?

If you persist in trying to establish your industry on the Beartooth Front, we have many eyes that will watch you like eagles and hawks from all angles, including from the air.  We will monitor your every move and when you make mistakes we will officially record and report them to the media and the proper authorities.  We will sue you any chance we get.  We will work tirelessly to change the laws so that they are no longer rigged in your favor.  We will do our very best to legally make it difficult and unpleasant for you to expand your industry on the Beartooth Front.  We are willing to spend whatever time and money it takes to keep your industry from expanding onto the Front. We will use all legal means to keep large-scale fracking out of the Front.

We do not appreciate the fact that your industry quietly lobbies the USA government to allow you to sell your fossil fuel all over the world while meanwhile you tell us that you need to drill on our land to help bring about energy independence for the USA.  Obviously your drilling on the Front is not critical to the energy security of our country.

The cost of renewable energy is decreasing rapidly and within the next few decades the marketplace will put the fracking industry into the dustbin of history.  Yet in this brief period of time when fracking is economically viable you want to despoil the Beartooth Front so that you can get richer.  The Front has a much greater intrinsic and long-term economic value as the relatively pristine area that it is, rather than as a fracking sacrifice zone.  Why don't you save yourself a lot of hassle and stop the expansion of your industry onto the Beartooth Front?  Why don't you show some basic human decency and leave us alone?  You really are messing with the wrong people.

John Brainard
