You Driving A Fossil Fueled Vehicle Sparked The Border Migration Crisis

It’s so obvious, you guys! It wasn’t the fact that illegals and refugees and people who just wanted to get away from their 3rd World Shitholes developing nations always seem to want to come to the United States. Or that one political party, and some squishes in the other, not only refuse to crack down on illegal immigration, but actively propagate the impetus for people to stream to the U.S. Or that people have always streamed to the U.S., legally and illegally. No, it’s carbon pollution. And all your fault

Climate Change Sparked the Border Migration Crisis

One factor causing migrants to risk everything—even potentially losing their children—to travel through the heat of summer in the dangerous desert and towards the barbed wire fences and tent cities springing up just south of the United States border: climate change.

Many of the migrants being detained here now hail from what’s referred variously as the Dry Corridor or the Northern Triangle, which consists of the three countries immediately south of Mexico: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

The agricultural crisis of the Northern Triangle area isn’t something that cropped up overnight, but has been in the making for more than a decade. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations published a report in June 2016 that described the depth of the food insecurity crisis in the region, leaving 3.5 million people, or nearly 30 percent of the population, food insecure from crop losses estimated to be as high as 90 percent.

See? Who didn’t see this coming, because we all know that plants hate carbon dioxide.

And just to continue with the meme

Trump Penalizes Migrants Fleeing Climate Crisis He Ignores

The impacts of climate change do not respect international borders. If they did, it wouldn’t be the case that the countries who have done the least to contribute to global carbon dioxide emissions are expected to suffer disproportionately from their effects.

But as climate refugees begin to flee deteriorating conditions, they are already finding that borders very much apply to them.

Many of the immigrants being detained at the southern U.S. border under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy are fleeing food scarcity brought on by climate change, The Daily Beast reported Thursday.

Wait, I thought Obama fixed ‘climate change’? Didn’t he say that “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”? Trump certainly hasn’t been in office long enough to create climate doom. Must be an inherited problem

    “Thirty years of data have been collected since Mr. Hansen outlined his scenarios—enough to determine which was closest to reality. And the winner is Scenario C. Global surface temperature has not increased significantly since 2000, discounting the larger-than-usual El Niño of 2015-16.
    And it isn’t just Mr. Hansen who got it wrong. Models devised by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have, on average, predicted about twice as much warming as has been observed since global satellite temperature monitoring began 40 years ago…”
    “The list of what didn’t happen is long and tedious,” say Michaels and Maue.

    “On the 30th anniversary of Mr. Hansen’s galvanizing testimony, it’s time to acknowledge that the rapid warming he predicted isn’t happening.”

  2. Jeffery says:

    The mean global surface temperature increased 0.54C in the 30 years since Dr. Hansen made his predictions. Since 2000 the Earth has warmed 0.37C.

      Lie, again.

        Hi dave,

        We’re beginning to think that you don’t understand the thermometer concept.

        Or it could be that since the new Con Men lie constantly, they assume that everyone else lies.

        Google “temperature trend calculator” and you can see for yourself.

        GISTEMP —– 0.54C since 1988
        HADCRUT —– 0.59C since 1988
        Berkeley —- 0.60C since 1988

        With no reason to expect the rapid rise to stop any time soon.

      • Jeffery says:

        Hi dave,

        And if you prefer the satellite databases:

        RSS ..… 0.63C since 1988
        UAH …. 0.54C since 1988

        UAH is run by skeptic Jon Christy, disciple of Roy Spencer.

        What data do you use to calculate the temperature trends over the past 30 years?

        Or rather than discuss facts and issues, maybe you prefer to stalk me online and threaten my family and coworkers?

      Perhaps little jeffery lyinn keene of st. louis has a problem understanding the meaning of has not increased significantly.

      But that’s understandable.
