CELEBRATE EARTH DAY!
SIGN ON TO HELP CONFRONT THE FRIGHTENING ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGE THAT OUR NATION CAN NO LONGER IGNORE.
From its very founding in 1970, Earth Day has stood as a time for Americans to reflect on all that we owe to Mother Earth and the need to care for our fragile planet. Thus far, we’ve made great progress in cleaning up our nation’s air and water, preserved farmland, forests, wetlands and wildlife habitats, and put our country on a path to a cleaner, safer environment.
However, we have greatly failed to meet the challenge to reduce the size of our population, which if allowed to continue to grow, will severely limit our ability to create a livable future for our children and grandchildren – and generations to come.
NPG has worked for decades to spread the alarm that too many people pose a huge threat to our nation socially, economically and especially environmentally. It is definitely time for more Americans to raise their voices on this issue and fight for the important goal to slow, halt, and eventually reverse population growth.
Take action this Earth Day. Add your name to our national petition to demand that our nation’s elected leaders act immediately to confront the ‘ticking time bomb’ of population growth and commit to workable, reasonable,
common sense population policies.

World population, now over 7.3 billion, is predicted to rise to 9 billion by 2050, an increase of almost two billion, or 23%, in the short space of only 34 years from now.In the highly unlikely event that per capita greenhouse gas emissions could possibly be decreased by an equal percentage in such a short space of time (a blink of an eye) the total amount of worldwide emission would remain the same!
From this simple illustration it would appear that without drastically reducing the size of world population, there is no solution to the problem.None at all.So then why do our world leaders pretend that there is one?What is to be gained by pretending rather than by proposing a solution that would solve the problem – a reduction in the size of world population to not more than 1- 2 billion?
