Dr. Otis Graham in his book, “Unguarded Gates,” said, “Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all – ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.”
Each year, with the current world population of 7.2 billion human beings, an average of 57 million people die off from old age, disease, starvation, war and other violence. Not only does human fecundity replace that 57 million people who die, it adds another 80 million to total 137 million newborn babies every year of every decade without pause. Thus, the human race adds one billion new humans onto the planet every 12 years. Humanity expects to break 10 billion by 2050 – a scant 36 years from now.
With that huge number of newborns, the countries that are home to all these children cannot educate them. Thus, illiteracy, the barometer for all poverty and human misery – accelerates. Further, they cannot feed them. The more conservative estimates of the United Nations indicate 10 million children starve to death annually. Even with 10-15 million humans dying, it leaves 122 million to feed, water, house, educate and eventually create work for their lives.
It’s not working.
Nonetheless, worldwide, political leaders, religious leaders and developing countries refuse to take action. The human race accelerates without a word from NBC’s Brian Williams, ABC’s Diane Sawyer and CBS’ Scott Pelley. ABC’s David Muir raced around Somalia a year ago when 100,000 children faced immediate starvation – but that crisis quickly lost the public eye, and the children continued starving.
How Many Refugees Are in the World?
According to a 2009 report by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), 42 million people around the world were uprooted from their homes due to conflict or persecution. Of this number, 16 million were considered refugees, while 26 million were displaced within their own countries or were considered asylum-seekers in other countries. About 80 percent of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing countries.
Some estimates by the UN show in excess of 50 million refugees looking for a new country to move to by 2050. A recent survey found: More Than 100 Million Worldwide Dream of a Life in the U.S.
Since developing countries refuse to engage in birth control for cultural and religious reasons, they use First World countries for a human exhaust valve. But, at some point, countries like the United States, Canada, European countries and Australia will exceed their carrying capacity.
Africa, India, Indonesia, the Middle East and Bangladesh continue growing their populations without pause.
As soon as their refugees flood into First World countries, those refugees grow their carbon footprint impact, water footprint and ecological footprint 10 to 30 times greater than they impacted the environment in their native countries.
First world countries must ask themselves if they want to tread that path? Can the United States sustain the projected 100 million immigrants within the next 36 years – by 2050? Why should it? What will it mean to quality of life and standard of living? What will it mean as to water supplies and energy?
At some point, the United States must take stock of its path. On our current path, we face demographic disaster. That’s a mathematical certainty. It’s only a matter of time.
