Population and Environment



Freshwater Limits | 2016
Water shortages, which used to be limited to the dry western states, are now a nationwide problem. Even regions that once seemed to have limitless supplies of water are starting to impose restrictions on residents.

Why Should You Care About Immigration? | 2015
Immigration has significant impact on education, jobs, poverty, healthcare, taxes, wages and the environment.

Environmental Impact | 2009
We won't be able to meet today's environmental priorities if our population continues to grow at the staggering rates created by mass immigration.

The United States Is Already Overpopulated | 2009
Because of the abundance of our nation, we have long been careless about out level of consumption, but it is the precipitous rise in the U.S. population over the last four decades that has resulted in our outstripping of our national resources. We are living beyond our means and are doing so increasingly as our population expands. This is a serious problem with major implications for future generations.

Energy Use, CO2 Emission and Immigration | 2009
Energy consumption is a factor of both per capita use and population size. Population size in the United States is largely an issue currently shaped by immigration. U.S. energy consumption and the resulting environmental impact from the production of greenhouse gasses have been steadily increasing even though per capita consumption has been decreasing. Reversing this trend requires reducing immigration.

Environmentalists Support Immigration Reform | 2009
The key to controlling environmental damage is to stabilize our population a size sustainable by our environment and natural resources--but high immigration is working at odds with efforts to keep overpopulation under control.

Immigration, Energy and the Environment | 2009

More is Not Necessarily Better | 2009
As an area becomes more populated, its infrastructure starts straining under the weight of all the new people who must be served. Police forces, roads, and schools no longer satisfy the demands of a growing population, and farmland and forests are sacrificed to strip malls and housing developments.

Rating Environmental Groups on Immigration | 2009
Environmentalists agree that population growth is a serious issue. But how do they respond when Census Bureau data shows that two-thirds of U.S. population growth is due to immigration?

The Population-Environment Connection | 2009
Describing the disjoint between environmental priorities and immigration fueled population growth.

Traffic Congestion | 2009
More immigration means more congested highways.

Urban Sprawl | 2009
Farmland, forests, and other open space is being lost to urban population settlement.

Population Growth | 2008
Immigration adds more than half of the annual U.S. population increase, while communities struggleing to provide services to existing residents.

Q&A on the Environmental Connection | 2008
How does large-scale immigration impact population growth, water and energy supplies, urban sprawl, and other environmental issues?
