NIGHTLINE - January 18, 2001 (ABC NEWS)
"2015, THE CIA REPORT PREDICTIONS OF VIOLENCE, LACK OF PRECIOUS RESOURCES.
"Short of nuclear war itself, population growth is the gravest issue the
world faces. If we do not act, the problem will be solved by famine, riots,
insurrection and war."
- Robert McNamara, Former World Bank President
"No problem poses a greater threat to the planet than population growth,
Nelson said, adding that immigration is the chief reason for U.S. population
growth that if unchecked will nearly double the U.S. population to more than
500 million sometime after 2050.
He took the nation's leaders to task for failing to address immigration
issues and also pointed a finger at the media for ignoring the problem.
"They don't want to touch it," Nelson said. "Neither does Congress. Neither
does the president."
Nelson also called for the president to begin delivering annual state of the
environment messages, and for Congress to begin hearings on the chief
environmental problems facing the world.
"Until the Congress and the president understand what it will take to
achieve sustainability we will never achieve it," Nelson said."
Gaylord Nelson was governor from 1958 to 62 and a U.S. senator from 1962 to
1981, and championed environmental causes in both offices. He may be best
known for Earth Day, an event he founded in 1970 that's now observed
annually across the world. He's served as a counselor to the Wilderness
Society in Washington, D.C., since 1981.
"Its just obvious that you can't have open immigration and a welfare state."
- Noble award-winning economist, Milton Friedman
"If government knew how, I should like to see it check,
not multiply the population."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Population growth is the primary source of environmental damage."
- Jacques Cousteau
"...democracy cannot survive overpopulation. Human dignity cannot survive
it. Convenience and decency cannot survive it. As you put more and more
people into the world, the value of life not only declines, it disappears.
It doesn't matter if someone dies. The more people there are, the less one
- Isaac Asimov
"I am convinced that some political and social activities and practices of
the Catholic organizations are detrimental and even dangerous for the
community as a whole, here and everywhere. I mention here only the fight
against birth control at a time when overpopulation in various countries has
become a serious threat to the health of people and a grave obstacle to any
attempt to organize peace on this planet."
- Albert Einstein -- letter, 1954
"The leadership are fooling themselves. Overpopulation is a very serious
problem, and over immigration is a big part of it. We must address both. We
can't ignore either."
- David Brower,The late Sierra Club hero who was nominated three times for
the Nobel Peace Prize. Outside Magazine, July 1998
"Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet
understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have
discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not sufficient
knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the
problem and education of the billions who are its victims."
- Rev. Martin Luther King
"Environmental catastrophes and all other related evils such as climatic
changes, destruction of the ozone layer, water pollution, famines, energy
shortages, epidemics, disease, xenophobia, racism, discrimination against
women, child abuse, torture of animals, discord among mankind, war and
crime, etc. etc., have been predestined to occur for many decades now. To
what can all of these disasters really be attributed, however? Indisputably,
their sole and exclusive cause is mankind's lifeopposing, continuously
growing overpopulation problem, for it subsequently forces an increased need
for everything one can imagine. This steadily escalating demand for greater
production results in increasingly greater, endless, insurmountable
disasters. Insurmountable, since remedial efforts to resolve each problem
are usually only very half-hearted in order to enable politicians, the
industrial leaders and others to preserve their positions; additionally,
these people are given immense funds which, of course, they funnel into
their own pockets. Likewise, attempts to alleviate environmental ills are
usually nothing more than senseless efforts to combat the symptoms of the
situation and are nothing more than an exercise in futility, for none of the
adversities are cut out at the root and destroyed. Instead, the symptoms are
merely apathetically attacked in a lackluster manner to keep up pretenses
for the public. Thus, much more serious adversities in both the near and
distant future are predestined to occur in every way even today. The same
also holds true for famines, which for many decades and centuries have
repeatedly reeled across the Earth. In the future they will become more
devastating due to the incessant increases in population, which, above all
else, is THE source of every terrestrial adversity and catastrophe. This
disaster must be curtailed through a worldwide, relentless program to halt
births, and then be diminished through intentional and international global
birth control, until the human population of roughly 529 million people is
reestablished --- a population that is compatible with the planet's size and
with nature." by Billy Meier
