    1. CAUTION SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND FACING REALITY UPSETTING!

    2. It’s the sequel to “Did You Know?”

    3. Are you aware…

    4. …every time your heart beats once…

    5. …three new hearts begin to beat for the first time…

    6. …adding seventy million to the burgeoning human family of 6,800,000,000…

    7. …each year!...

    8. …nearly all of which are born in countries least able to support them...

    9. …creating failed states where governments are no longer in control.

    10. How many failed states will it take to reach a tipping point for a civilization?

    11. Are you aware…

    12. …failing states are an early symptom of a failing civilization…

    13. …and in failed civilizations of the past, such as Sumer, the Mayans, the Romans, the Anasazi, and the Egyptians …

    14. …the first to go were the trees…

    15. …followed by the soil…

    16. …then finally by the civilization’s collapse.

    17. Are you aware…

    18. …it took all of human history up to 1800 to add the first billion people to the planet…

    19. …and only 130 years to add the second billion by 1930…

    20. …and the third billion was added in just 30 years by 1960…

    21. …amounting to less than half the number of people alive today when John Kennedy was inaugurated…

    22. …and it took 14 years to add the 4th billion, 13 years to add the 5th, and only12 years to add the 6th.

    23. Are you aware…

    24. …that nearly half of the human population…

    25. …subsists on less than $2…

    26. …per day…

    27. …and that human civilization has overshot the carrying capacity of the planet by…

    28. …at least two billion...

    29. …and yet we are loathe to discuss this root cause of all our problems.

    30. …“Any cause is a “lost cause” without population growth control.” -ZPG, 1960s slogan

    31. Are you aware…

    32. …that a majority of the world’s people are 27 years old or younger…the so-called “youth bulge”…

    33. …whose young men, with not enough to do, constitute a volatile population…

    34. …responsible for more than three-quarters of all

    35. …violent crimes...

    36. …including rebellion and civil unrest…

    37. …and caring very little about developments in new technology…

    38. …or education.

    39. Are you aware…

    40. …there are too many of us…

    41. …using too much of too many resources…

    42. …too fast!..

    43. …yet, if everybody consumed natural resources like we North Americans do, at least two more Planet Earths would be needed to maintain our lifestyles.

    44. Are you aware…

    45. …the human population is the cause of most of the global devastation of the twentieth century, including…

    46. …deforestation of temperate and tropical forests…

    47. …to the tune of one football field-sized area of forest…

    48. …every second!...

    49. …and the acceleration of soil erosion, where one-third of all cropland is losing topsoil faster than new soil is forming…

    50. …drastically lowering the productivity of the planet’s arable land.
