Americans face a unique challenge in solving the climate crisis. Unlike other Western countries and Japan, where population is projected to be relatively constant, the U.S. population is set to grow by at least 100 million--and likely 150 million--people->

Throw away cities for throw away people - the marching morons.

Well - if the globalists have their way - we don't have to worry about population - they have population control well under control!

None of this really matters if we don't do something about our population. Growth in this country is way out of hand. Other countries have far more limited resources then we once had. Their growth in many parts of the world has been contained, not in the United States.

Humanity needs to restrain its numbers and demands on nature - for the good of all species.

Kit we also need to do a total remake of our education system. The land of opportunity is a concept that is passing us by now.The new generation of students is saddled by awesome levels of debt caused in part by the greed of the universities themselves who have regularly seen students as the piggy banks to fund their pet projects for years now! This situation is the product, not of escalating salaries so much as double digit tuition increases done for decades now by institutions of higher learning both public and private.Population increases will only make matters worse of course!

...attitude adjustment is needed,too....so that people all see the benefits of doing good for others, today, tomorrow and elsewhere.....

if humanity doesn't choose to deal with the over-population issue sometime in the future - environmental destruction, lack of resources, climate change, war, famine, drought, etc will do it for us.....

The private and public universities and many local school districts we led down a road to destruction. Most of them invested their pension money and even daily working monies into the false illusion of a no-lose, no risk investment into derivatives. I think we all know happened to those investments. Student's are those suffering the consequence of poor judgment by these schools. Condemning our schools and universities or the facilities is not the answer, investment into our future through the young minds of today is our only real alternative.

We must not linger any longer on the grave issue of population control. We have side-stepped and ignored this issue for so long now that the United States is going to see the many harbingers of a deadly future for the millions that are yet to be born. One child per family is more then enough considering the current and future situations that those children will face. Both women and men need free safe and readily accessible birth control.
