As we celebrate Earth Day and strive to protect our environment and fragile ecosystems, we must start connecting the dots among population growth, immigration, and environmentalism.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) recently published their 2022 Living Planet Report that tracks wildlife populations around the world. The biennial report tabulates the populations of animal species on the planet, and demonstrates how human activity affects biodiversity around the world.
According to the study, the population sizes of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles have seen an alarming average drop of 69% since 1970. This staggering drop shows how biodiversity, fundamental to human and wildlife, is being destroyed at an alarming pace.
Meanwhile our population has swelled to 8 billion, despite the fact that here in the U.S. fertility has been below replacement for over 50 years. Immigration is by far the main driver of U.S. population growth. According to the Pew Research Center, between 2015 and 2065, “future immigrants and their descendants are projected to account for 88% of the U.S. population increase, or 103 million, as the nation grows to 441 million.”
The UN now projects that the world’s population will continue booming through the remainder of the 21st century, climbing from 8 billion to more than 11 billion. Our first step to achieve sustainability would be to stabilize the population of the planet.
Californians for Population Stabilization works to formulate and advance a range of policies that promote sustainable, stable populations for our planet and nation. Americans understand the consequences of out-of-control population growth and want our country to develop informed and appropriate policies to ensure we save America for future generations.
