RECENT SPP MEDIA: Australia's population growth can't go on like this - SMH, 21 April 2013
POPULATION INTRODUCTION: BETTER, NOT BIGGER
The Stable Population Party is a sustainability party with a major focus on the everything issue - population. We are equally concerned with environmental, economic and social wellbeing.
Population is the critical issue suppressed by all federal parliamentary parties and much of the mainstream media. Our grassroots community party formed in 2010 to give all Australians a choice on population and therefore the sustainability of the environment, economy and quality of life we enjoy and pass on to our children and grandchildren. Responsible custodianship of Australia is our primary moral responsibility.
In a finite world, more people means less resources per person. Australia's finite natural resource base is the true source of our wealth - not our rapid population growth that both dilutes and erodes it. To meet the huge costs of population growth, Australia is using finite and non-renewable resources that should be saved for our children and grandchildren.
Population growth is now the underlying issue linked to all of Australia's major problems. We need a choice.
6 reasons to vote for a stable population
A stable population will help:
- Relieve overstretched infrastructure including hospitals, schools, roads and public transport
- Ease cost of living pressures including housing, energy, water and transport
- Protect our environment including food, water & energy resources, native bushland & animal habitats
- Promote education and training to increase job opportunities for all Australians
- Minimise overdevelopment including high-rise and sprawl
- Create a more resilient economy to sustain and enhance prosperity
Population is not a single issue, it is the everything issue.
We won't resolve any of Australia's major problems until we first resolve the everything issue.
We live in a finite world so can’t grow forever. A stable population is necessary, and the sooner we act, the easier it will be to manage Australia's growing environmental problems and resource scarcity.
Our economy is completely reliant on a healthy environment in order to function. Economic sustainability and intergenerational quality of life through the sustainable use of Australia's food, water and energy resources is Australia's sustainable choice. We should not be manipulated into using Australia as an overpopulation safety valve for the rest of the world, as this has no positive impact on global overpopulation. We should focus our foreign aid wherever possible on female rights and education, and on opportunities for women and couples to access voluntary family planning services to help prevent unwanted pregnancies.
confirms that over 70 percent of Australians reject the Liberal / National / Labor / Greens / Katter 'big Australia' policy outcome of around 36-40m (and rapidly rising) by 2050 . Yet until now we've had no choice. Powerful business lobby groups are pushing for this rapid population (customer) growth. But our grassroots community party echoes the voice of the people.
