I can’t believe how much urban sprawl there’s been in America during the past 20 years — more than 11.5 million acres of open land (an area about the size of New Jersey and New Hampshire combined) has been developed. This trend is being fueled by population growth.Continue reading “Federal action is needed to take population pressures off communities.”
We cannot achieve a sustainable population with current immigration levels
It’s frustrating that America’s prominent economists can’t acknowledge that economic growth does not require a relentless increase in population. We can grow our economy by using education and technology to increase productivity. With slower population growth, we can make greater progress toward resolving economic and environmental issues while boosting our productivity, and quality of life, as a nation.Continue reading “We cannot achieve a sustainable population with current immigration levels”
Wages decrease during a slowing economy. Reduce immigration.
Immigration threatens worker bargaining power even more during a slowing economy.Continue reading “Wages decrease during a slowing economy. Reduce immigration.”
Wildlife cannot thrive while Congress promotes rapid population growth.
America is experiencing a “biodiversity crisis,” which has been confirmed by the U.S. EPA’s list of endangered and threatened wildlife, now exceeding a mind-boggling 1,300 species. Habitat loss, and the consequential habitat fragmentation, are the primary reasons for this crisis, and America’s high population growth is driving these conditions. All this will become much worse if America grows by another 75 million in 40 years, as predicted by the U.S. Census Bureau, with more than 90% of this increase coming from immigration.Continue reading “Wildlife cannot thrive while Congress promotes rapid population growth.”
You must confront the adverse impacts of U.S. population growth
Our ecologically-illiterate immigration policy is pushing us towards half a billion Americans by the end of the century, with some arguing that we should be aiming for a billion to ensure our power and prominence on the international stage.Continue reading “You must confront the adverse impacts of U.S. population growth”
Our de facto open borders make inflation and climate change worse
The Real Clear Policy article, “Our De Facto Open Border Makes Inflation & Climate Change Worse” (October 4, 2022) tells the sad truth:
“If you were seeking to inflict the maximum pain on the American people during a time of high inflation and scarcity of goods and services, you would implement de facto open borders. And if you wanted to cancel out any of the positive effects of the recently passed so-called Inflation Reduction Act on climate change, you’d also want to keep that border wide open.”
Reasonable solutions are available, from restoring the Migration Protections Protocols, to raising the “credible fear” standard. I am very sorry to witness this Congress’s and this administration’s utter failure to act, or even acknowledge the depth of this crisis, the worst in U.S. history.
