As explained by the report’s summary, because the United States is “one of the world’s greatest emitters of greenhouse gases” and a contributor to the “political instability in the region,” the United States must bear responsibility in ensuring that “those who are forced to migrate can do so with security and dignity.” ...
Additionally, the professors recommended extending emergency disaster aid funds internationally, “broadening the definition of public or national interest to encompass the climate-migration nexus,” and creating a “climate visa” which would offer a path to permanent residency and citizenship.
Climate Depot's Morano comments: "Huh?! Ivy League professors can't be this stupid, so they must know they are spouting total scientific garbage. First, they predict that 'climate change' will displace nearly 4 million people in Central America over the next three decades due to extreme weather projections. If the professors had done even rudimentary research in the peer-reviewed scientific literature or data, they would know this is not reality. On nearly every metric, extreme weather is on either no trend or a declining trend on climate timescales. Even the UN IPCC admitted in a 2018 special report that extreme weather events have not increased. The IPCC’s special report found that “there is only low confidence regarding changes in global tropical cyclone numbers under global warming over the last four decades.”56 The IPCC report also concluded “low confidence in the sign of drought trends since 1950 at global scale.”
These professors are simply using scary climate predictions to derail rational debate on these immigration policies and instead they are attempting to ram their political views under the guise of climate science. Pure nonsense."
Will the Green New Deal keep cicada cycles at 17-years?
Reuters: Temperatures affect when cicadas emerge and their underground growth. Scientists witnessed large numbers of 17-year cicadas surface years ahead of schedule in 2017, which entomologists suspect could be related to global warming. ... "The biggest questions are: Is climate change changing their life cycles? And then, how does it change them?" said Chris Simon, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Connecticut who has studied the insects for more than three decades.
... With a better understanding of how cicadas know when to emerge, scientists may be able solve whether and how climate change is having an impact, Simon said. Eventually, we could see 17-year cicadas "escape through time" and permanently change to a 13-year cycle.
Researchers from The University of Queensland's School of Earth and Environmental Science and the Mater Research Institute reviewed 12 studies, finding extreme ambient temperature exposures throughout pregnancy appeared to increase risk of stillbirth, particularly late in pregnancy.
Claim: We know cow farts (and, more importantly, burps) contribute to global warming, but they’re not the only things expelling greenhouse gases into the air. Trees killed by rising sea levels are also emitting carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, according to a recent study, and these “tree farts” could be an overlooked source of emissions that will only worsen as sea levels continue to rise and wipe out woodlands.
CNBC: "Extreme weather such as hurricanes, flooding, freezing temperatures and wildfires has prompted some to rethink where they will spend their golden years...Another client in Austin suffered from the region’s deep freeze and power outages in February. When pipes froze and their condo flooded, they started to question their long-term plans, McGlothlin said.With the possibility of another cold snap, more home damage or future displacement, they are reconsidering where they are living."
