The population of the United States is hitting 300,000,000 today (Tuesday).
US Census Bureau Population Clock (11:30 AM Tuesday Morning, Eastern European Time Zone)
A few observations:
- The United States is not overpopulated. Even relatively high-density areas, such as the Northeast and southern California have lower population densities than much of Europe and Asia.
- High population has not necessarily led to environmental disasters. Yes, there are environmental problems, but many of them were worse (air and water quality) when the U.S. population was lower.
- Population growth in the U.S., as in most of the world, is at a slower rate than it was 40 years ago. It won’t keep on growing to a billion or more.
- If there is a problem, it is with consumptive, materialistic lifestyles. Does all that stuff make us happier?
