Overpopulation is with us every minute of our lives!
Whatever event, large or small, that is happening in the United States or the world, one thing will always be occurring right along with everything else in our lives – overpopulation.
It never ceases, never takes a break, carries on no matter what.
Because of it’s relentless momentum it is subtle, steadily and incrementally making our lives, communities and culture more complex, dibilitating and less personal.
So we are continually fighting the numbers thing.

A Staggering Grand Total of 227,000 Additional People Per Day
And I leave you with this, that Grand Total will increase tomorrow, and the next day, and the next and on into the future.
