Sustained Carbon Emissions Reduction Impossible without Population Stabilization -- BALANCE Alert!

2/28/2023 - Stabilizing or reducing population size in industrialized nations is essential for achieving sustained Carbon Emissions Reductions and Environmental Protection!!.

Birth rates in industrialized western nations are below replacement level in both the U.S. and Europe. In the United States, the population still grows, however, because of continuing high levels of legal & illegal immigration. Moreover, immigrants come in order to raise their standard of living, which means raising their personal rate of carbon emissions. The only way to reduce carbon emissions permanently is to limit immigration. The goal must be ZERO NET immigration into the United States i e. reducing Legal from about 1.5 Million /year pre-pandemic to 150,000/year AND stopping virtually all illegal immigration

Zero Net Immigration is also essential to curing a host of other environmental problems: Crowding Housing, Topsoil loss, Potable water availability Safety!! etc

--Understanding the pressure of growing populations on the environment’s carrying capacity is essential for developing sustainable solutions. For example, Professor Pimental et al. (Cornell University) found that for every person added to the United States’ population, one acre of farmland (precious topsoil) or natural habitat (for the critters) was lost, de facto permanently, to development.

The motivation for having larger or smaller families should be taken into account in any program that aspires to be a permanent solution for the Earth’s multiple environmental, social, and political problems.

*Mass immigration typically improves the individual lives of those who immigrate, but not necessarily the lives of those already living in that country. Thus, one expects immigrants to have larger size families than people of comparable beginnings in the country to which they come. This expectation has, in fact, proved out.

Further, *Emigration relieves crowding in the country that migrants leave, so it is expected that the fertility rate in these countries, or areas of these countries, would rise. This expectation has also proved out. Conclusion: allowing mass immigration from countries where population exceeds  the carrying capacity impedes their transition to population stabilization and thus to sustainability.

Recently, 11,000 scientists and others around the world issued their joint conclusions on the causes of "Climate Change." One conclusion stands out — over-population is a major contributing factor to CO2 pollution. Thus, it is not a surprise that the two most over-populated countries in the world — India and China — account for well over 50% of world CO2 Emissions. And since allowing Mass Immigration increases population in the sending countries as well as in the receiving countries, stopping Mass Immigration is essential to reducing CO2 Emissions.

Anthropologist Dr. Anne Brittain of the University of Miami, Coral Gables, has demonstrated this. Conclusions from her studies in the Caribbean include:

... Those districts with the greatest stability of population had the lowest child-to-woman ratios, suggesting that the anticipated loss of children to migration may be an important factor in maintaining high reproductive rates.”

Anticipated Child Loss to Migration and Sustained High Fertility in an East Caribbean Population, Social Biology, Vol.38, No. 102, Spring Summer 1991, pp 94-112, Brittain

...Instead, the probability of emigration accounted for 34 percent of the variation in the crude birth rate, which increases in emigration being followed by increases in the birth rate five years later.”

Migration and the Demographic Transition: A West Indian Example, Social and Economic Studies, 39:3, 1990, IBID

A first Giant Step toward Solving the Over-population Problem in these sending countries is to Dramatically reduce Immigration from them.  Anthropologist Dr. Virginia Abernethy concurs. Congruent with her hypothesis that fertility rates vary depending upon expectations of future income or wealth, she writes,

... reducing Immigration keeps pressure on sending countries and increases the likelihood of their reducing their fertility rates."

See The Vanishing American Dream by Dr. V. Abernethy, Professor Emeritus at Vanderbilt University Medical School.

In sum, allowing emigration from a Sending Country provides Opportunity for families, because some of their members emigrate to the USA (where they are able to work and to send back remittances) thus driving up fertility rates in the sending countries (more kids to the USA produce more remittances.

Unfortunately, in the USA, pending Legislation and Current Law (which allows about 1.6 Million Legal Immigrants per year into the USA, of which 400,000 per year settled in California prepandemic) encourage and enable Mass Immigration and thus increase population size and CO2 Emissions. For example, the currently uncapped asylee category enables immigration and incentivizes illegal immigration by providing a way for Illegal Aliens to become legal and to traffic Children  (to get more taxpayer funded benefits on arrival)

--Most unfortunately legislation introduced very recently would make population stabilization in the USA impossible for years, thus guaranteeing massive CO2 production, continuing environmental degradation, and unsafe conditions for our national and personal environments

2/21/2023 - Sellout  Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)  launched a new ""Dream Act of 2023" Amnesty bill in the US Senate (S365) with his fellow open-borders globalist Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL).

The bill would automatically grant conditional permanent resident status to some two million  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients .

Conditional permanent resident status can be changed to lawful permanent resident (LPRs or green-card holder) status as soon as they meet certain conditions

This Dream Act Amnesty legislation is a strategy DC Open Borders elites crafted after we defeated the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) Mass Alien Amnesties several times in Washington 2004-2019. The globalists plan to use younger illegals to pull on American heartstrings to get this Amnesty for 2 million illegals --the DACAS-- who claim they came as kids (many are lying) into law as the stalking horse for a Huge Alien Amnesty. via the CIR Bill

Specifically, when this Dream Act Amnesty is about to pass they will quickly amend/transform it into an Amnesty of over 35 Million Ilegal Aliens called the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill (CIR), Added to that number would be The numbers of Illegal Aliens crossing the border into the USA -- about 250,000/month, not including the "gotaways"!!

Thus If the Dream Act Amnesty passes this year, the chances the Open Borders Crowd will successfully couple that with  the nation-killing CIR amnesty for tens of millions of Illegals is very high, and devastating for our Nation!. For example EACH Illegal Immigrant costs American taxpayers over $80,000. for health care, welfare, food stamps, education, etc (CIS.org).

Only Mobilization of Balance's and ASAP Coalition  Activists in all the States can stop it

That CIR Bill as now drafted would likely not only legalize over 35 Million plus Illegals with green cards and a path to citizenship, but ALSO remove many of the caps on legal immigration resulting in a dramatic increase/doubling of the pre-pandemic level of 1.5 Million per year which included 400,000/year into California alone!

And Most Important to Note:

ONLY pushing BALANCE's all-categories-included zero Net MORATORIUM on Legal Immigration (which would still allow appx. 150,000 legal immigrants/year) plus closing the Border MAXIMIZES the chances of stopping this Horrendous Alien Amnesty Bill.

Pushing any less restrictive number, as the two National Mass Immigration Management Groups do, will likely result in a Compromise Bill reducing the numbers by just a few hundred thousand at most..... a totally unacceptable result.

Indeed, since those two National Mass Immigration Management groups refuse to support any Moratorium Bill (like Rep. Gosar's e.g.)


URGENT: Contact your U.S. Representatives and Senators repeatedly and urge them to oppose any Bill which contains ANY Amnesty Bill provisions,  or any increase in legal immigration, and to support a zero-net Moratorium Bill and closing the Border

MULTIPLY your Impact by making a Tax-Deductible Donation to Population-Environment-BALANCE (visit balance.org)

BALANCE can thereby Intensify its Mobilization of its Activists all over the USA to oppose this bill

[BALANCE and its ASAP Coalition Activists were Essential in stopping the December 2019 Alien Amnesty Bill!] And Most Important to Note:

ONLY pushing BALANCE's all-categories-included zero Net MORATORIUM MAXIMIZES the chances of stopping this Horrendous Bill.

Pushing any less restrictive number, as the two National Mass Immigration Management Groups do, will likely result in a Compromise Bill reducing the numbers by just a few Million at most..... a totally unacceptable result.
