Re: E-M:/ Another More Inconvenient Truth

Some reports put the potential figure at 200 million in the next 20 years.

Not only are the environmental resource and pollution issues obvious, but just
finding a "decent" place to live. We are rapidly moving as a nation
to a REQUIREMENT of clustering homes and people in order to preserve
a bit of open space. Every bit of infrastructure is straining today.


Life in the "country" is disappearing. The changes in my lifetime are already
dramatic, and the potential changes in the next 20 years are much larger.


While I am sorry for the potential immigrants looking for a better place,
I feel no need to accelerate the trashing of my own space.

Thirty-some years ago, my wife and I were members of ZPG and NPG as we
recognized the issue already then as young adults.

Another more inconvenient truth that too many
environmentalists are complacently ignoring is that if
America adds another 100 million immigrants over the
next 20 years and an additional 100 million immigrants
the next 20 years after that, efforts at achieving a
sustainable clean environment will be effectively
doomed. All these new people in America will add to
America's excessive consumption of natural resources,
ecosystems, and natural habitats. So where are many
environmentalists in the debate over American
population policy and immigration?
