Everything’s Bigger in Texas – But Population Growth Doesn’t Have to Be

fairhp_edtx2FAIR harkened to Earth Day’s root when attending the United States largest Earth Day celebration in Dallas, Texas. Population growth was a central focus of the original Earth Day held in 1970. Thirty years later, the founder Gaylord Nelson re-emphasized the importance of this ignore issue:

The hard fact is that while the population is booming here and round the world, the resource base that sustains the economy is rapidly dwindling. It is not just a problem in faraway lands, it is an urgent, indeed, a critical problem here at home right now.

FAIR challenged Earth Day 2015 attendees to consider the impact population growth has on the environment, from increased resource consumption to development of natural spaces.  Members of the FAIR team talked to Texans about the leading role immigration plays in our national population growth and ways to take control of our national destiny, including stopping the inflows of unregulated illegal immigration and reducing legal immigration.

FAIR launched an environmentally focused website, FAIRImmigrationMatters.com, in honor of Earth Day Texas illustrating how immigration-driven population growth will affect Texas. FAIR members are encouraged to visit the site now and in the future when it is updated with national data and impacts.

    Earth Day Refocused to Its Historical Depopulation Core Values

    So nice to hear that FAIRUS.ORG is leading the way to a real environmental plan, not phony recycling doing almost nothing compared to letting overpopulation ruin America.

    Earthday tee shirts [I buy a couple every year] has us vote on designs and yes the phony Sierra Club emphasis on recycling without depopulation has hit that tee shirt maker too. I voted against recycling and voted for their “spotted owl” design. I wore one at Democrat’s Cantwell’s campaign meeting and even she had to compliment me on the tee shirt…..as the Mayor prepared to launch the IA parade that Cantwell supported down Seattle ‘s streets on the tax payer dime.

    Mother Earth documents: One trip on a jet has the carbon footprint of one year of useless [in comparison to depopulation] recycling….
