Seconds from now, the US population will hit 300,000,000.
[The latest (projected) figure is visible at the US Census.]
Should they be trying to limit the population?
I think perhaps they should, but will they ever? I seriously doubt it.
Why should they? Because the planet is now in ‘ecological debt’ – we, as a race, are taking more from the planet than it can provide, and Americans are the worst of all. The average US citizen uses 5.3 times what he should. More detail in the BBC Report.
