Part 7: What America will look like in 2050—ecological footprint

Part 7: What America will look like in 2050—ecological footprint

~~By Frosty Wooldridge~~

Part 7: Ecological footprint

In the past week, our U.S. Congress tabled the egregious mistake of amnesty bill S744 projected to render a free pass for 20 million illegal migrants and their families. It also raises legal immigration from 1.0 million annually to 2.0 million.  For the moment, the American people stand a chance of not allowing an unending flood of humanity into the United States to drive our population to over 100 million added immigrants within four decades.

However, at the current rate of mass legal immigration of 1.0 million annually, we remain on course to add 100 million immigrants, their children and chain-migrated relatives by 2050—a scant 37 years from now.

That’s enough people to duplicate the populations of our top 20 cities within the United States.  We would have to water, house, warm, transport, feed, work, educate and medicate 100 million more people.  That fact alone should sober the most optimistic individuals in America. It should cause every single one of our 535 Congressional critters to stand back to “see” the enormous tragedy their actions portend for all Americans of every race, creed or color.

The “Gang of Eight” U.S. Senators who created the amnesty bill S744 will prove some of the dumbest, most unintelligent nincompoops ever to walk the halls of Congress for their sheer stupidity in formulating that bill.

As this series progresses, you grow in understanding of the ramifications of adding 100 million immigrants.  You comprehend the enormity of the decision and its final outcome.  Please realize that Congress continues to push to pass amnesty.  They won’t enforce our laws, our president won’t enforce our laws; but they can’t wait to legalize lawbreakers and employers who hire those lawbreakers.

What lies below the surface of adding 100 million immigrants?  We know that we face horrific energy depletion with that many added persons to our civilization.  But most don’t posses a clue as to what lies beneath the waters of such a population-load on America.

Do you notice that humans encroaching on habitat around the world in such places as Africa, India, China and South America—create horrible species extinction rates? How many extinctions?  Answer: over 100 extinctions 24/7.  In other words, the human race thinks its endless population growth supersedes any other creature on the planet.

What does that mean for America?

In 2013, we lost 250 species to extinction in the lower 48 states according to the U.S. Department of Interior and we lose that many every year.   That equates to 2,500 living, breathing creatures every decade. They will never again exist on this planet.  How can that happen?

Ecological footprint on America

Ecological footprint may be the most unheard-of word in America, but its impact will grow more devastating in the coming decades—as we continue to lose more and more species to human encroachment on habitat.

To give you an example: an Ethiopian farmer uses .4 (4/10th) of an acre of land to feed, house and clothe himself and his family.  That’s his ecological footprint.

However, when that same Ethiopian farmer immigrants to America at our behest, his ecological footprint jumps to a whopping 25.4 acres of land to support him.  Our standard of living runs hundreds of times greater in use of land, water and resources than a simple farmer from Africa.  But once he arrives, we force his “footprint” to jump more than 50 times.  (Source: www.allspecies.org)

If we add another 100 million immigrants within 37 years, do the math!  That 100 million legal immigrants X’s 25.4 acres of land equals to 2.54 billion acres of land that must be destroyed to feed, house, educate, recreate, build malls, roads and a dozen other items that destroy natural habitat.

That’s why extinction rates gallop at over 100 species per day worldwide as the human race rampages with an added 80 million annually, net gain.  In other words, the other creatures on the planet don’t have say or a prayer. (Source: Norman Myers, Extinctions Worldwide, Oxford University)

But payback will arrive at some point. We will lose the grizzly bear, the moose, the bald eagle, the salmon, the hummingbird, the antelope, fox and hundreds of other creatures.  How?

It’s called “cascading extinctions.”  When you kill off one creature such as a prairie dog, you also kill off 67 other creatures that live-off that one furry rodent. Fox, coyotes, hawks, eagles and dozens more.   That’s why you don’t see those great creatures living in concrete-filled jungles called “cities.”

Remember, we stand to duplicate the populations of our 20 most populated cities within 37 years, “IF” we continue the 1965 Immigration Reform Act; and faster if S744 bill passes with 2.0 million legal immigrants added annually.

In other words, our country will become as hostile and ugly toward other creatures as the Bengal tiger in India or the Snow Leopard in Nepal, or the elephant in Africa along with the gorillas, or the grizzly bear in Montana, or finally, this nation’s symbol: the Bald Eagle.

Dear reader, we stand this watch in our nation’s history.  What we allow today affects seven generations into the future. We actually walk on the faces of the children of tomorrow. What will we leave them?  What kind of environment? What kind of national parks?  What kind of landscape? What kind of habitat for other creatures?

What can you do?

·      We need to stop S744 and reduce all legal immigration to less than 100,000 annually.

·      We need to work on conservation of all oil burning by mandating conservation, smaller cars, mass transit and more taxes to discourage accelerating use.

·      We need to collective empower ourselves by joining www.CapsWeb.org ; www.NumbersUSA.org and www.Fairus.org

·      We need to write major media email addresses and newspapers to force them to address this population nightmare.

If you don’t want to see our country turned into a schizophrenic, cultural quagmire as well as overpopulated beyond saving, call Speaker of the House John Boehner at 1 202 225 0600:

“Mr. Boehner, I understand that S744 doubles legal immigration from its current 1.0 million annually to 2.0 million while giving amnesty to 12 to 20 million illegal migrants. Do you understand that such an amnesty would flood America with over 100 million immigrants by 2050—a scant 37 years from now. How will we be able to water, house, work, feed, educate, medicate and care for that many people when we already suffer 48 million Americans who cannot secure jobs and live on food stamps? How will we maintain our environment and standard of living in light of those numbers. As an American citizen, I demand that you reduce all immigration to less than 100,000 annually and enforce the laws on the books to arrest, prosecute and jail employers of illegal migrants. That will help illegal migrants to go home on their own dime when they don’t have a job. Our own unemployed citizens can take those jobs at a living wage.”
