Snuff It #1

Gloom and Doom

In the seconds it takes you to read this sentence, 24 people will be added to the Earth's population.

Before you've finished this paragraph, that number will reach 1000. Within an hour... 11,100. By day's end... 260,000.

Before you go to bed two nights from now, the net growth in human numbers will be enough to fill a city the size of San Francisco.

It took four million years for humanity to reach the 2 billion mark. Only 30 years to add a third billion. And now we're increasing by 95 million every single year.

No wonder they call it the human race.

If current trends continue, world population, currently at 5.5 billion, will nearly triple to 14 billion within the next century. Moreover, new Census Bureau projections show that the U.S. population will likely increase by 50 percent in only 57 years -- from 256 in 1992 to 383 million in 2050. Although the United States is home to only 5 percent of the world's population, we are responsible for using 23 percent of the world's commercial energy, for producing more garbage than any country in the world, and for generating about 21 percent of the world's total carbon dioxide emissions -- the major contributing gas to global warming.

"Unless the world gets on top of the population explosion, we're never going to solve any of the other problems."

-Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy

We starve, look
At one another, short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasies
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
