Which is it?! ‘Global warming’ causes more illegal immigration — BUT Illegal Immigration causes less ‘global warming’
As official Washington battles over the issue of illegal immigration and how to respond to, climate activists are promoting very confusing contradictions when it comes to immigration and climate change. See: Sen. Bernie Sanders declares biggest threat facing the US was climate change, not immigration – warns Earth may become “uninhabitable in the not-so-distant future.”
A study by a UN IPCC lead author claimed that “global warming” will lead to “mass migration to the U.S.” by 2080 due to the alleged climate model-based predictions of reduced “crop yields in Mexico. The peer-reviewed study claimed that the massive climate caused influx of immigrants from Mexico, could equal many millions. See:
Flashback 2010: LA Times breathlessly reporting on UN IPCC lead author Michael Oppenheimer PNAS immigration paper:
Climbing temperatures are expected to raise sea levels and increase droughts, floods, heat waves and wildfires. Now, scientists are predicting another consequence of climate change: mass migration to the United States. Between 1.4 million and 6.7 million Mexicans could migrate to the U.S. by 2080 as climate change reduces crop yields and agricultural production in Mexico, according to a study published online this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The number could amount to 10% of the current population of Mexicans ages 15 to 65.
But wait, before we accept the claim that “global warming” will INCREASE mass illegal immigration to the U.S., the climate change narrative also claims that the influx of immigration to the U.S. will REDUCE “global warming.!” Climate activist Bill McKibben wrote in the LA Times in 2013 McKibben wrote: “It’s true that the typical person from a developing nation would produce more carbon once she adopted an American lifestyle but she also probably would have fewer children.” As a bonus, McKibben added that illegal immigrants are LESS likely to “pull the [election] lever for climate deniers.” See:
LA Times 2013: Illegal Immigration Can Reduce Global Warming – The Los Angeles Times ran an editorial by Middlebury College Professor Bill McKibben arguing that allowing millions of illegal immigrants into America will reduce global warming…McKibben says that while the average American has a larger carbon footprint than a person living in the developing world, bringing more immigrants to America would likely reduce their tendency to have higher birthrates, thereby creating less carbon-producing people. “It’s true that the typical person from a developing nation would produce more carbon once she adopted an American lifestyle,” says McKibben, “but she also probably would have fewer children.” McKibben, who previously wrote a book arguing for Americans to have smaller families, says that “global warming is arguably the greatest danger we face,” that “immigrants, by definition, are full of hope,” and they are thus less likely to “pull the [election] lever for climate deniers, for people who want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, for the politicians who take huge quantities of cash from the Koch brothers and other oil barons.”
So, “global warming” will increase illegal immigration — but at the same time — increased illegal immigration will reduce “global warming.”Got that?!
And climate activists like to claim that President Trump’s grandfather, Frederick Trump who emigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1885, was a “climate change refugee”! See:
2017: TRUMP’S IMMIGRANT GRANDFATHER CALLED A ‘CLIMATE CHANGE REFUGEE’ – “Prevailing climatic conditions, crop yields and cereal prices were “significant with explanatory power between 22 and 38%” of emigration from southwestern Germany to the U.S. during the 19th century, according to a study published in the journal “Climate of the Past.”…Frederick Trump left Germany in 1885 at the age of 16, just within the time period of the study, so several media outlets took this to mean that Trump’s grandfather, Frederick Trump, was likely a “climate change refugee.” The UK Independent reported that “droughts, floods and cold temperatures account for up to 30 per cent of the 19th century emigration from south-west Germany, the home of the US President’s ancestors.”
“Climate was a major reason why people bearing some of Americaʼs most famous family names, including Trump, Pfizer, and Heinz, emigrated from southwest Germany in the 19th century, a new study reveals,” Vice’s Motherboard reported. Of course, outlets tied Trump’s family to an alleged “climate change refugee” as a jab against the president’s stance on their treasured climate policies, like the Paris accord and Clean Power Plan. “Perhaps if Frederick Trump were still around he could convince his grandson to be more proactive on climate change and to more seriously consider the devastating human impacts,” Earther reported.
