Part 2 of 5: India expects to jump from 1.252 billion to 1.55 billion within 32 years. It adds 16 million, net gain, annually. Today, Indians flood into America, Canada and Europe with chain-migration and added birth rates. Indians do not practice birth control. Their human misery index explodes off the charts. Let’s take a look at what ramifications Western countries face from immigration from India…
In 1960, India reached 500,000,000 (million) people. Today, driven by multiple ancient religions that prohibit birth control, India suffers every kind of social and environmental consequence known to humanity with its 1.252 billion people. Even more catastrophic, it adds 16 million more people, net gain, annually.
India’s major river, the Ganges, which I once rafted, flows into the ocean with the most polluted, toxic and contaminated waters known to humankind. It features trillions of gallons of untreated sewage, industrial waste, hundreds of chemicals and millions of pieces of plastics—that flow into the ocean 24/7. That watery, chemicalized conveyer belt creates a 20,000-square mile dead zone at the mouth of the Ganges. Once it hits the Indian Ocean, those contaminated waters spread all over the planet—poisoning marine life, avian life, reefs, the ocean floor and cause deadly acidification extensively around the planet.
Of note, the USA, China and India dump the most plastics into the world’s oceans. Latest estimates show 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic float above and flow under the surface around the world—killing millions of marine creatures annually. As per investigations by marine biologist Julia Whitty, published in OnEarth Magazine, 46,000 pieces of plastic trash float on every square mile of Earth’s oceans. In a word: sickening! Why? Because we’ve known this for 20 years, but no action to stop it by creating incentive-driven deposit-return laws internationally.
Within India, hundreds of millions of people lack a toilet. Therefore, they defecate-urinate on the land daily. In fact, the Indian Express reported, “Best experts tell us that 60.4 percent of Indians lack a toilet.” As you can imagine, the stench in the cities, the filth in the streets and the total contamination of soils and rivers by that many people injecting their waste upon the lands and waters 24/7—cannot be comprehended.
Thus, every day of the year, 1,000 Indian children under the age of 12 die of dysentery, diarrhea and other waterborne diseases die from drinking contaminated water. (Source: www.populationmedia.org)
Yet, as India’s population accelerates by 16 million net gain annually, they grow so fast, they cannot solve any of their problems. Disease and squalor top the “human misery index” beyond the concepts of the citizens from Western countries.
You can only imagine that India cannot support jobs, classrooms and housing for that many people added annually. Yet, not one word about population stabilization from India’s leaders. At one point, Indira Gandhi attempted to bring birth control to India when I visited in 1984, but she failed because of religious-cultural norms that overpowered reasoned thinking.
If you look at the beauty of the Taj Mahal, one of the most famous landmarks of India, a short trip to the river next to it shows millions of pieces of plastic clogging its waters. And, the water features endless chemical poisons leaving it unfit for human or animal use.
In the cities, air pollution poisons the lungs of everyone breathing that toxic air 24/7. You see everyone tapping into electrical wires illegally at every juncture. You see filth, trash, and smell stench everywhere. When you see the traffic, it’s a free-for-all that confounds and confuses the Western mind. The National Nutritional Monitoring Bureau estimates that only 15 percent of Indians receive adequate nourishment daily.
As can be imagined, because of adding that 16 million more people annually, India’s wilderness suffers encroachment via roads, housing, mining, lumbering and other development. Animal extinction rates soar in India. The Bengal Tiger and the Snow Leopard will not survive in the wilds within several decades. Elephants face an uncertain future. Birds of all kinds face extinction from loss of habitat. Fish and plants vanish as Indians invade and demolish habitat.
With all the realities facing the people of India, no one raises a finger to address their population predicament. Even in the face of so much human misery, their leaders live in “cognitive dissonance” also known as “intellectual denial of reality.”
Please realize that I am covering the tip of the iceberg in this series. At any time, we may witness horrific outbreaks of cholera and other diseases that will kill millions in Asia.
But what does it mean for all of us in the USA or other western countries like Canada, Europe and Australia?
To be frank, we face a global mess that will ultimately arrive on a big platter forced down our throats. Today, millions of Indians clamor for visas to move to the USA, Europe and Canada. The rich ones buy their way into America. Some Indians discovered how to gain loans to buy all the motels across America. They continue accelerated chain-migration with that niche.
As with 50,000 annual Diversity Visas, 14 million people apply annually to gain the “Golden Ticket” to America.
By 2050, a scant 32 years from now, India expects to out-populate China to reach 1.55 billion people. As it stands, they lack the ‘arable land’ to grow enough food. They clearly lack clean water as they dry up their ground water supplies.
If you think the refugee crisis facing Europe last year and continuing this year bodes badly—you haven’t seen anything yet.
When India starts facing hunger crises via lack of arable land, lack of rainfall, and growing ‘catastrophic climate destabilization’ with its 1.252 billion people—we’re all in trouble. In 2018, we watch a global disaster in the making.
No amount of immigration solves anything for Indians. No amount of international aid will help them. Why? Because they keep growing human numbers beyond any solutions.
As you read this series, yes, pretty sobering! In fact, pretty depressing! Because if you’re in your 30s or 40s, you and your children will see this international debacle on a stage unseen in human history. That’s why America, Australia, Europe and Canada must create an international discussion-debate on human population stabilization—before Mother Nature does it for us, rather brutally and without mercy.
Eleanor Roosevelt said it 50 years ago: “We must prevent human tragedy rather than run around trying to save ourselves after an event has already occurred. Unfortunately, history clearly shows that we arrive at catastrophe by failing to meet the situation, by failing to act when we should have acted. The opportunity passes us by and the next disaster is always more difficult and compounded than the last one.”
That’s why I am working to interview on “60 Minutes”; National Public Radio; Public Television and the New York Times and other top newspapers. Contact them and give my name:60M@cbsnews.com . George Stephanopoulos at ABC. Robert Siegel at NPR. Give my email contact: email@example.com
Or, in Canada, Europe and Australia, work to promote your own leaders to top spots on television to expose what we all face. In Canada, Madeline Weld and Tim Murray. In Australia, Mark O’Connor, Jenny Goldie, and Dick Smith. In the United Kingdom, Brian McGavin, Eric Rimmer and others.
