Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” - Emma Lazarus
If you thought global warming scaremongering tactics went away with the most recent failed prediction for 2015 when we were supposed to be flooded and underwater, with little polar ice caps left, you would be mistaken.
Writing for the Washington Post, Michael B. Gerrard, a legal scholar at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, proposes that we should take in millions upon millions of refugees that will eventually be displaced by climate change. He said, “We ruined your country. Welcome to ours.” Playing on Emma Lazarus’ famous quote, he adds, “Give us your thirsty, your hot, your flooded masses.” Apparently carbon footprint taxes and wealth redistribution are not enough, we must adopt progressive social engineering of the planet.
If global warming average temperatures increase above 3.6 degrees, islands like Kiribati and the Marshalls and parts of Bangladesh, Pakistan, Egypt, and Vietnam will disappear underwater, flooded by melting glaciers in the Himalayas and the Andes. And if people don’t keep their voluntary and non-binding promises to cut CO2 (at the U.N. Climate summit in Paris in December 2015), “the thermometers could go much higher.” From Sierra Leone to Ethiopia, land will turn into desert. The heat will increase violence, ethnic and political tensions, Gerrard said.
Gerrard’s proposed solution is a pledge “to take on a share of the displaced population equal to how much each nation has historically contributed to emissions of the greenhouse gases that are causing this crisis.” http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-38454957.html
Quoting the World Resources Institute, between 1850 and 2011, the U.S. caused 27 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, a trace gas that all plants need to grow. As a matter of fact, greenhouses provide extra CO2 in their solariums in order to accelerate plant growth.
The European Union causes 25 percent of CO2 emissions, China 11 percent, Russia 8 percent, and Japan 4 percent. It is curious how only industrialized countries are identified as culprits even though nobody bothers to explain how ice melted 15,000 years ago or who or what caused the Mini Ice Age during the Middle Ages when there was little or no industrial pollution.
A very arresting photograph that illustrates this needed massive relocation of humans from poor countries to wealthy countries in the west shows Biblically dressed humans wading through chest-deep water and women carrying heavy loads of possessions on their heads.
Gerrard suggests that the U.S. should then take in 27 million people to absolve themselves from the 27 percent CO2 sin. Taking in just one million per year as we currently do is not enough; it won’t be a popular move but it would be “fair,” he added. We must take responsibility for the gases we expel into the atmosphere and pay for the damage. And if the new arrivals want to “re-create their own communities” within our country, it is only “fair.”
He agrees that these people could adopt desalination practices and other technology-savvy agricultural methods but “they typically take a great deal of money and energy, the very resource we have failed to conserve in the first place.”
The gloom and doom prediction is that “If we don’t want millions of people seeking heaven here – or dying while they try – then the United States and other industrialized countries need to become far more aggressive in cutting their greenhouse gas emissions.”
“Europe is in a furor over who will take in” those who are fleeing civil war in Syria and oppression in Eritrea, said Michael Gerrard. They risk their lives to reach the shores of European safety and the lure of entitlements.
Might Europeans be leery of these refugees because of the attacks against innocents, like the recent one on a Tunisian beach, when Britons on vacation were mowed down with machine guns by a religionist of peace?
A report released in May 2015 by NASA indicated that “updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.” http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/20915-nasa-s-own-data-discredits-its-predictions-of-antarctic-doom
According to New American, the report did not clarify whether climate warming may be natural or may be coming in cyclical patterns, or whether global warming is anthropogenic.
It has been reported by many scientists who are now called “global warming deniers” that average temperatures fluctuate, the globe’s climate changes in natural, cyclical patterns, cooling and warming, causing glaciers and polar ice caps to grow and to shrink.
NASA scientists began measuring ice caps by satellite in 1979 during the end of a 30-year cooling period. The “normal baseline” was thus established during this cooling period with very thick ice caps. As James Taylor of Forbes wrote,
“The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent.” http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2015/05/19/updated-nasa-data-polar-ice-not-receding-after-all/
Since the Pope inserted himself into the climate change industry, Dr. Klaus Kaiser wrote a letter to the “Academicians of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS)” to clarify their positions, particularly since they have a significant “influence on the development of poorer nations and their people” and in light of the fact that these people “are presently deprived of many of the energy-driven amenities of the developed countries.”
Dr. Kaiser pointed out 12 scientifically incontrovertible facts:
1. Without CO2 in the atmosphere life on earth, plants, animals, humans could not exist.
2. For 4.5 billion years atmospheric CO2 on Earth was higher than today.
3. Photosynthesis converts CO2 to organic matter thus reducing CO2.
4. Oxygen is produced in the earth’s atmosphere from CO2 via photosynthesis.
5. Oceans and fresh water are alkaline, not acidic; photosynthesis also increases the alkaline property of neutral or acidic water.
6. Without human influence, kilometres-thick ice shields covering the northern part of North America and Eurasia 20,000 years ago have melted completely about 5,000 years ago.
7. For the most part, during the 15,000-year period mentioned, atmospheric CO2 stayed at 250 parts per million.
8. CO2 is not ‘pollution,’ when “the earth’s plants and ocean algae consume any CO2 stemming from fossil resource use with the same vigour as that emitted from volcanoes and fumaroles.”
9. Coal, a source of man-made CO2, provides a lot of the energy needs of the planet. India and China build a new coal-fired plant each week. Dr. Kaiser urges countries in Africa to expand their use of fossil fuels.
10. The word “consensus” has zero meaning in science; look at astronomer Galileo who was exonerated by the Vatican 400 years after the Catholic Church condemned him as a heretic for his view on heliocentricity.
11. CO2 is a vital trace gas in the atmosphere, not a “pollutant.” http://canadafreepress.com/article/73340
The naked truth is expressed quite clearly in this quote by Warren Moss:
“‘Such impending catastrophic events – flooding, droughts, heat waves, and higher seas – all allegedly caused by emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels,’ have been used by the global-warming theorists working with federal agencies and the UN to impose draconian environmental regulations geared to bring the world’s industrial-based economy to its knees.” http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/20915-nasa-s-own-data-discredits-its-predictions-of-antarctic-doom
