More people = more problems?

The American Spectator has an interesting piece by RiShawn Biddle regarding the debate at the Sierra Club about whether the environmental organization will retain or discard its policy of neutrality on immigration:

...a group of left-leaning anti-immigrationists led by former Sierra executive director John Tanton, founder of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), have tried to nudge the organization toward their position by grabbing seats on Sierra's 15-member board.

...Sierra has already tacitly accepted that less immigration would be a good thing. Since 1968, it has advocated family planning regimes in Third World countries as well as supported legalizing abortion; it has recently demanded President Bush to restore funding for U.N. abortion and family planning programs. A dash of abortion here, a pinch of morning-after pills there, and voilà, the utopian nirvana of zero population growth is served.
