Sustainable Society:  A society that balances the environment, other life forms, and human interactions over an indefinite time period.







United States Population Growth: the Numbers

Historical and current U.S. Census data and population projections to the year 2100 are provided.

The associated graph depicts three Census 2000 population scenarios. (For a brief discussion of the arithmetic of growth, see Authors: Albert Bartlett, "Arithmetic and Population" and Dell Erickson, "Pond Lilly".)

Minnesotans —all Americans, should select a point on the graph they feel is their vision for the future nation and to establish a comprehensive population policy consistent with that vision.

According to knowledgeable authorities, current population polices are inconsistent with a sustainable nation.

Proposals to achieve a sustainable U.S. population are also seen.

MFS encourages all visitors to support the population policies of their choosing.
