America on the Brink: The Next Added 100 Million Americans--injects a whole new dynamic facing the United States in the 21st century.  While national leaders at every level ignore accelerating consequences,  immigration-driven hyper-population growth will become THE single greatest issue facing America in the years ahead.  By adding 100 million people by 2035, every crisis facing Americans today accelerates in harsher consequences--whether it is water shortages, climate change, energy scarcity, dwindling resources, gridlock, air pollution and a decline of quality of life.   Wooldridge compellingly states the obvious fact that the U.S. cannot continue population expansion indefinitely.  He offers Hobson’s Choice as a final result of mass denial.  If the U.S. adds another 100 million people via immigration, it faces two doors: if the country picks door # 1, this civilization walks over a cliff.  If it picks door # 2, it walks into quicksand.  Once that 100 million people manifest, no one, no matter what their race, creed or color—escapes.  Americans will endure water shortages, energy problems, crowding and a much diminished standard of living.  The American Dream will no longer be available. However, he offers concrete ways to change the future.  In all great social change, it takes a ‘conscious shift’ that leads to a ‘critical mass shift’ and finally, a ‘tipping point’ whereby a civilization turns toward a sustainable and viable future.  It’s up to each citizen and leader to make sure that ‘tipping point’ occurs.  The fate of this civilization hangs in the balance.
