Globull Warming To Increase Mexican Illegal Immigrant Migration To US

Here’s a fun little study, released last week

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.

“Assuming that the climate projections are correct, gradually over the next several decades heading toward the end of the century, it becomes one of the more important factors in driving Mexicans across the border, all other things being equal,” said study author Michael Oppenheimer, professor of geosciences and international affairs at Princeton University.

How fanciful (I’m being generous and now calling it cow poop) is this new study? Even Discover, as republished at CBS News, derides the study, and says that you shouldn’t put much stock in the statistics. Heck, even Oppenheimer says

….the fudgy nature of predicting climate change’s effects, and that while the numbers make for a sexy headline, you shouldn’t take them too seriously. He says: Our intention was to show that this problem is a substantial one. Our goal was not to project specific outcomes 80 years from now but to show the magnitude of problems that policymakers ought to pay more attention to. I don’t want to say that this will be the single biggest factor driving immigration, but it could become among the largest factors”

In other words, “we have no real idea what will happen with the climate, but, we want to scare the pants off of legislators so the pump tons more money into research, so that we can get rich like Al Gore.”

Say, why did all those illegals come to the USA prior to Reagan giving them amnesty?
