For example, if we all reduce our "carbon footprint" by 20%, but our population grows by that amount (as it is predicted to do in a few years), what will we have gained? Nothing!
The U.N. ranks the U.S. with eight other nations - India, Pakistan, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, Uganda, Ethiopia and China - as nations that will account for fully half of the world's population growth by 2050. The U.S. is the only developed nation with third world-like population growth, thanks to an extremely high rate of immigration. Soon, population growth won't be the only thing we have in common with the third world.
