John Tanton: Carrying Capacity and Summary

Tanton Video Interview Interview 2006 - Topic 23

You can't address carrying capacity issues by international migration.

Dr. John Tanton notes that we can not continue to solve carrying capacity issues by moving people and resources around the globe - we need to recognize the finiteness of resources and adapt our lifestyle to one that can be sustained over the millennia.

In summary, urges his fellow citizens to "buck up" and take up the discussion about mass immigration. It is time to give up the name-calling, try to find the facts as they are, try to be concerned about future generations, and try to make legitimate projections. We must acknowledge that most people are going to have to bloom where they are planted - there is simply not the carrying capacity to move tens and hundreds of millions of people around the globe and still have any sort of survivable lifestyle.
