From Pew Research: “Looking ahead, new Pew Research Center U.S. population projections show that if current demographic trends continue, future immigrants and their descendants will be an even bigger source of population growth. Between 2015 and 2065, they are projected to account for 88% of the U.S. population increase, or 103 million people, as the nation grows to 441 million.”

An extra 100 million people — almost one-third more. Just to maintain our standard of living we’ll have to build or expand many schools, hospitals, housing units, power plants and refineries. We’ll have to expand or increase roadways, public transportation, airports, power grids, water supply, water treatment, storm sewers, waste disposal, police departments, fire protection, prisons, jails, super markets, regulatory agencies, gas stations and on and on.

How will 100 million additional Americans affect global warming? Progressives for Immigration Reform examines the environmental impact in great detail, and its findings aren’t encouraging.

Progressives, I have a question for you: How do you reconcile your support for immigration with your fear of anthropogenic global warming (which I, too, believe is real and dangerous)?

Anyone moving to America — especially from the Third World — will likely consume more resources and cause more greenhouse gas emissions. We Americans are, and have always been, the most voracious and profligate consumers on the planet.

Another reason to close the borders.
When your gas tank is full you stop pumping gas.

Why weren't the Democrats, Pope or the United Nations forced to do a Environmental Impact Assessment on this? I mean like here's the link:

www.epa.ie...

I mean like isn't this like us? No not US as in USA. Just ............. us? Oh you mean we only do those to kill jobs and the economy and stfle a nation into Trillions of debt?




is the process of examining the anticipated environmental effects of a proposed project - from consideration of environmental aspects at design stage, through consultation and preparation of an Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR), evaluation of the EIAR by a competent authority, the subsequent decision as to whether the project should be permitted to proceed, encompassing public response to that decision.

That will happen the same way it does now, we'll just sell ourselves more Treasury Bonds to do so and then we can send all those extra people to other countries to freedom up our natural resources the poor slobs inhabiting those places are unwittingly living on top of.

I think some new taxes is in order


How about, coupled with CO2 tax, introduce a brand new O2 tax ? Why the hell not.

According to the article new immigrants will only account for a portion of it, it's the descendants of the ones that are already here that will be the bulk of the growth which means by 2050 it will be Taco Tuesday every day which is cool with me since I really like tacos. Ariba.

I think we can squeeze in a sunshine tax too. Why hold back?

I think that perhaps PEW did not account for the drastic decrease in life expectancy in the U.S., so I think we need another look at those numbers.

More of a reason to keep a man like Trump in office after Trump is finished with his second term.

From your link-


A new report from the Centers for Disease Control shows that a small decrease in life expectancy, from 78.7 to 78.6 years, is part of a continuing trend.


I think drastic is a bit of a stretch yea?

So deportation can start any time.


How do you deport the descendants of legal immigrants? That's where most of the growth will be coming from.

I can tell you a few facts for 45 years from now.

1. I'll be dead.
2. Zombie Apocalypse for sure within that 45 years. Or Plague. Or Bird Flu. So population won't be an issue.
3. Flying cars.


And I always imagined that PEW Research was the study of flatulence.

Did you read the study? I think not. Okay, how about 'dismal' and I don't foresee anything improving in the future considering climate change is considered a hoax there and fast food is still king.

Going to need immigration.

According to a recent poll 30 percent of U.S. males under 30 have not had sex in over a year.

Where are the kids going to come from if not from immigration.

Maybe all those nutters preaching abstinence are having some effect.

The study that talks about early deaths from drug overdose and suicide bringing down the expected life expectancy average down by .1 years? I don't think that is going to offset growth too much, but I've been wrong before.
