Our Water Supply, Down the Drain

Published:  

Droughts make matters worse, but the real problem isn't shrinking water levels. It's population growth. Since California's last major drought ended in 1992, the state's population has surged by a staggering 7 million people. Some 100,000 people move to the Atlanta area every year. Over the next four decades, the country will add 120 million people, the equivalent of one person every 11 seconds.

Forty years ago this morning, I was visiting with Milton Berle in his hotel room near Grand Rapids, Michigan, sharing our reactions to watching the moon landing in the middle of the night. That evening, we met again over a giant bowl of potato salad at a backyard picnic as Congressman Gerald Ford dipped and recounted his call from Pres. Nixon soon after the moon walk.

I did some surfing of the internet and thus far have found that 95% of the blogs and comments (outside of our own website) about my Senate testimony Wednesday suggest I was a little crazy to say that immigration-driven U.S. population growth is an environmental threat. Granted, there really wasn't a lot of attention to the hearing on S. 424, but . . . .

Overpopulation and Over-Immigration Threaten Water Supply, Says Ad Campaign

Published:  

A Census Bureau report indicates that the U.S. population will rise to 439 million by 2050, or 135 million more than today. More than 80 percent of U.S. population growth will continue to be a direct result of immigration and births to immigrants. In California -- where the population increases by a half million per year -- that immigration component accounts for virtually 100 percent of the growth.

Today, the Census Bureau again revised its U.S. population projection for 2050, giving us the bad news that we are headed to 439 million instead of 420 million. In nearly every measure, our local, state and federal governments can't even provide our current 304 million Americans with adequate infrastructure for a high quality of life in terms of the environment, transportation, public health, education, parks and many other areas, so why do federal officials insist on the immigration policies (particularly Chain Migration) to force us to handle 439 million?

Study: High Immigration Levels Linked to Higher Global Greenhouse-Gas Emissions

Published:  

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) released a new analysis that establishes a causal relationship between high levels of U.S. immigration and significantly higher world-wide CO2 emissions. The reason the study cites is a transfer of population from lower-polluting countries to the U.S, a higher-polluting country. The study also notes that recent increases in U.S. CO2 emissions can be wholly attributed to population increases because per capita emissions have stabilized.

Environmental Bills Called Pretext to Loosen Border Security

Published:  

"Open-border advocates operating under the guise of environmentalism are prepared to push for legislation that could result in an accelerated flow of illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and human trafficking from Mexico into Arizona, according to law enforcement experts familiar with the terrain.

The two bills, sponsored by Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), would restrict federal and state law enforcement officials from patrolling an already porous border area that extends from Sonora, Mexico into Santa Cruz County, Ariz., critics charge...."

Treading on a taboo

Published:  

"Portland's fevered efforts to stave off global warming by reducing carbon dioxide began more than two decades ago. And how much progress have we made? None. Zero. Zilch. Every day we dump more planet-threatening gas into the atmosphere. Why? Because at the same time Portland's metro-area population has grown by 42 percent.
