EDITORS NOTE: This article pretends to be an article about migration that is a result of the consequences of climate change. What it really is an effort to convince other people to accept immigrants into their country. The reason I’m sharing this article is show identity politics has become completely intertwined with climate change for some people that they can’t separate the two, and are willing to say anything to scare you into agreeing with them. Some of the predictions in this article are laughably ridiculous, for example A 2017 study in Science Advances found that by 2100, temperatures could rise to the point that just going outside for a few hours in some places, including parts of India and Eastern China, ‘will result in death even for the fittest of humans’. They are predicting it will be so hot, that going outside for a few hours will kill you.
The author of this article really wants you to identify with the suffering of the people in Central and South American Countries. They want you to feel so sorry for them, that you’ll open open your borders and welcome them in For most of human history, people have lived within a surprisingly narrow range of temperatures, in the places where the climate supported abundant food production. But as the planet warms, that band is suddenly shifting north. According to a pathbreaking recent study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the planet could see a greater temperature increase in the next 50 years than it did in the last 6,000 years combined. By 2070, the kind of extremely hot zones, like in the Sahara, that now cover less than 1 percent of the earth’s land surface could cover nearly a fifth of the land, potentially placing one of every three people alive outside the climate niche where humans have thrived for thousands of years. The author goes about how climate change will create political instability a nd conflict around the world The United Nations and others warn that in the worst case, the governments of the nations most affected by climate change could topple as whole regions devolve into war. The author wants you to accept that this is inevitable, and that governments need to start preparing for these climate refugees, and population resettlements She sees her own city as an object lesson in what U.N. officials and climate-migration scientists have been warning of: Without a decent plan for housing, feeding and employing a growing number of climate refugees, cities on the receiving end of migration can never confidently pilot their own economic future. In this author’s mind climate change and immigration are linked and that any solution that doesn’t address both at the same time is unacceptable.
