…its January 2019 vital statistics update, the CDC statistic generating the biggest headlines is the one that calculates the birth rate in the U.S. to be 16 percent below the amount needed to replace our population over time.
How many people remember reading all the headlines that outlined why our population isn’t sustainable? Here’s a link to a Market Watch article from 2013 with a direct quote, “Earth’s real problem is too many babies…but we can’t admit the truth”
Therefore isn’t it a GOOD THING that we’re not replacing our population?! These government agencies should be thanking us for fixing the mistakes of prior generations’ overpopulation.
Amanda, all of your points are valid, but rather than defending ourselves, why don’t we point back to factual articles that prove our actions are actually beneficial to society and the earth, overall!
