(America’s gridlocked traffic worsens annually because our country adds 3.1 million more people to the mix year in and year out, decade in and decade out. More people equals more cars, which means more exhaust, which means more toxic-polluted air with every breath, which means more asthma, which means more lung cancer and the Black Cloud over our cities grows without pause.)

(Not only do all those cars exhaust their carbon particles into the biosphere 24/7, but look at the mega-buildings with millions of smokestacks pouring toxic filth into the air endlessly. I have traveled through China and they are so far into the Dante’s Environmental Inferno that the only thing they can do is suffer, die and degrade their environment into submission.)
Already in China where they push 27,000 new cars onto their highways every single week of the year, some 14 million cars added annually as reported by NBC’s Brian Williams, they suffer unimaginable gridlock. Last year, China reported a 62 mile long gridlock traffic jam that took nine days to resolve. Motorists ran out of gas, out of water and out of food while stuck in traffic.
Ironically, China adds eight million more people to its population annually via “population momentum.” By 2030, they expect to burn 98 million barrels of oil daily, which exceeds the entire daily world consumption of 82 million barrels in 2013. (Source: The Long Emergency by James Howard Kunstler)

Why won’t global leaders meet in a world conference to deal with the environmental, social and mega-city consequences we humans created around the planet? When we see such enormous traffic gridlock, why do we think building more roads, highways and expressways will solve the problem? It won’t, it can’t and it doesn’t.
How can Los Angeles solve its God-awful and God-forsaken gridlock by adding another 10 million people, which demographic experts predict before 2050? What kinds of minds think they can solve anything by growing it bigger?
(Humans and vehicles fare poorly in auto collisions that occur every minute of every day around the globe. The human misery, loss and suffering from these crashes cannot be measured. As the human race gallops toward an added 3.1 billion more people by 2050, human car-crash deaths will skyrocket from their already horrific numbers in 2013.) Photography bywww.clarksvilleonlline.com
I have personally traveled through most of the major overpopulated cities in the world. It’s like trying to wrestle a giant squid with one foot. It’s like trying to fly using toothpicks for wings. It’s like trying to run with 100 pound weights attached to your ankles. You get the picture!
So, what’s the answer? Demographic expert Jason Brent of Los Vegas, Nevada spells it out: “Therefore, the only problem, the ultimate problem, facing humanity is to reduce our population as quickly as possible with the least amount of death and destruction and to determine who will be permitted to reproduce when the population contraction commences in the very near future.
Compared to the problem described above every other problem faced by humanity is irrelevant and unimportant. If the problem described above is not solved, billions will die due to the decline in economic activity which will cause continuous wars and other horrors until the population is reduced to the level the declining economic activity can support.”
As our civilization adds another 138 million people driving cars by mid-century, what’s your solution?
