US population nearing 300 million

WASHINGTON -- The population of the United States will hit 300 million sometime in mid- or late October, a milestone likely to trigger anxiety and political rancor rather than a national celebration of growth and prosperity.

Unlike the commemorations in 1967 when Americans hailed the 200 million mark, federal authorities this year won't be building giant population clocks as props for jubilant politicians. Nor will they encourage the news media to locate the newborn who put the nation over the top.

Instead, critics of rapid growth will question anew whether America can remain prosperous while burgeoning at the unprecedented rate of 1 MILLION NEW RESIDENTS EVERY 127 DAYS.............

Populations that will want more and more, on a planet that will have less and less, of that which makes the quality of the lives we live.
