Petition the Whitehouse: Stabilize US Population at or Below 333 Million

November 26, 2012 • United States, Daily Email Recap

You may be interested in the following petition created and sent along by Mark Powell, which calls on the U.S. administration to stabilize U.S. population.

We petition the Obama administration to:
Protect our future by setting a goal of stabilizing the U.S. population at or below one-third of a billion people.
Demographers expect the U.S.population to approach one-half billion people within fifty years. These forecasts are based on current immigration and women’s-health-care policies and practices. Unlike the rest of the developed world, which has largely settled into slowing population growth, in the last two decades the U.S. has seen an unprecedented resurgence in population growth, adding 60 million between 1990 and 2010. The growth we have already undergone, however, pales in comparison to the growth expected in the next five decades. I believe that Americans can solve any problem about which they can come to a consensus, but I also believe that most of our problems will be much harder to solve with a population of half-a-billion than one which is not much bigger than our population today.
