UN Climahysterics Declare That “Climate Refugees” Can’t Be Returned Home

And the have the power to enforce this how, exactly?

Climate refugees can’t be returned home, says landmark UN human rights ruling

It is unlawful for governments to return people to countries where their lives might be threatened by the climate crisis, a landmark ruling by the United Nations human rights committee has found.

The judgment – which is the first of its kind – represents a legal “tipping point” and a moment that “opens the doorway” to future protection claims for people whose lives and wellbeing have been threatened due to global heating, experts say.

Tens of millions of people are expected to be displaced by global heating in the next decade.

While the judgment is not formally binding on countries, it points to legal obligations that countries have under international law.

“What’s really important here, and why it’s quite a landmark case, is that the committee recognised that without robust action on climate at some point in the future it could well be that governments will, under international human rights law, be prohibited from sending people to places where their life is at risk or where they would face inhuman or degrading treatment,” said Prof Jane McAdam, director of the Kaldor centre for international refugee law at the University of New South Wales.

Well, good luck with this.

  1. If they can’t be returned home, then the alternative is to never let them in in the first place.

    • Kye says:

      Send them to China, N. Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, and the Middle East and Africa. They could use some “diversity”.

      • John says:

        Conservatives ( of both parties) also refused to allow Jewish refugees to come to the USA in the 1930s
        Not the finest hour for conservatives

        • formwiz says:

          No, that was Franklin Roosevelt.

          SS St Louis.

          Just ask Gropin’ Joe. He went on TV right after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

        • Kye says:

          Conservatives are predominantly Christian and as such would n-e-v-e-r “refuse to allow Jewish refugees come to the USA”. Stop lying and spouting commie propaganda about shit you no nothing about.

          It was the DEMOCRATS who stopped the Jewish refugees, not conservatives, not Republicans, the Democrats. They were also the ones who ran the KKK at the time and had segregation as law. You really are contemptible in your hate of anyone not leftist. All you have is lies, hate and bullying.

          Trump 2020 Keep AOC and the Jew haters out of Washington.

          • Professor Hale says:

            Once doesn’t need to look at motives of various parties or other unprovable claims. Only that FDR (the Democrat) was President from 1933 to 1945. We also don’t need to go down the path of claiming FDR started WW2 or the Holocaust.

  2. JAX says:

    It’s cold and nasty here in Svalbard, can I come to Florida?

    • John says:

      Yes you can visas are easy for you because you are white
      Come on down!!

      • Chumpchange says:

        @John.

        Your not even a good troll. You rely on the ignorance of the population to make lying statements.

        FDR’s Jewish Problem

        How did a president beloved by Jews come to be regarded as an anti-Semite who refused to save them from the Nazis?

        FDR a PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT was elected in 1931. Almost the entire 30’s was run by the Democrats.

        The Immigration Act of 1907 was a piece of federal United States immigration legislation passed by the 59th Congress and signed into law by President Theodore Roosevelt on February 20, 1907.[2] The Act was part of a series of reforms aimed at restricting the increasing number and groups of immigrants coming into the U.S. before World War I. The law introduced and reformed a number of restrictions on immigrants who could be admitted into the United States, most notably ones regarding disability and disease

        Teddy Roosevelt was a PROGRESSIVE who ran as a Republican. He was defeated after one term and came back to run as a full blown PROGRESSIVE in the BULL MOOSE PARTY later.

        BERNIE loves the PROGRESSIVE….read communist lite….FDR

        Sanders favors a much more liberal U.S. immigration policy. Not Roosevelt. In fact, FDR’s immigration policy was so strict that if Sanders’s father, Eli, had not arrived from Poland before Roosevelt became president, he probably would not have been admitted.

        So John as we can see the conservatives HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IMMIGRATION POLICY IN THE 30’s that kept the jews out of the USA. In fact FDR was so bad with the jews he became a RACIST and anti-semite to the world.

        TRUTH JOHN. Try it. It often opens your eyes and makes you realize that you don’t have all the answers and in fact in your case you have NONE.

        OH BY THE WAY

        The Balance of POWER in 32-47 was: Are you ready for this?????

        1933 ….313 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 59 SENATORS.
        1935…. 322 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 69 SENATORS
        1937…. 333 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 76 SENATORS
        1939…. 262 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 67 SENATORS
        1941….267 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 67 Senators
        1943….222 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 57 SENATORS
        1945….242 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 57 SENATORS
        1947…246 DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE and 51 REPUBLICANS.

        AS YOU can see JOHN. Your full of sheet when you talk about conservatives preventing Jews from coming to the USA. They had ZERO power in this country for the entire 30’s and most of the 40’s.

        • Even using the term conservatives to describe events in 1933 is pretty silly. Neither Republicans nor Democrats in the 30’s were “conservative” in any way we would understand today.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          The Immigration Act of 1924 was sponsored by two Republicans and signed by Republican Coolidge but enjoyed widespread support in Congress and within the US populace. It greatly limited the number of Asians, Italians, Jews, Greeks, Slavs, Poles, Portuguese, Spaniards, Romanians etc. The law did not take into account the rise of Nazis and more Jews were not allowed in until after WW2.

          Do you agree that America was much more conservative in the 30s than now?

          • formwiz says:

            You must be joking.

            We were all Keynesians back then.

            And Jew is not a nationality any more than Catholic.

          • Kye says:

            I agree the Democrats were much more conservative in the 30’s than now. Then again the Democrats were more conservative yesterday than they are today and more conservative today than they will be tomorrow. They are on the Bullet Train to Bolshevism.

      • formwiz says:

        Actually, it’s getting tougher.
