Rip-Off: Poorer Nations Demand Reparations from US for Refugees & Climate Change

You’ve got to be freaking kidding me. Poorer nations seem to have gotten it into their heads that the US owes them money for natural disasters because we didn’t give them enough aid. They also believe the US owes it to them to let them invade our country and come in and rip us off for all we are worth. So, we are to give them lots of money in reparations, then pay for their people to relocate, so they can finish us off when they get here? Trump is looking better all the time. This UN crap has got to stop. Our moronic leaders have already agreed to $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures. How can we afford that? We can’t. This is just suicidally insane.

Climate Reparations

From USA Today:

Poorer nations suffering from extreme weather disasters, so much so that their citizens are seeking refugee in safer terrains outside their borders, want rich nations like the United States to pay for reparations and to relocate populations.

Preparatory talks ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures. They want additional compensation for weather-related disasters as well as a “displacement coordination facility” for refugees. And they want all this to be legally binding as part of the larger anticipated Paris accord.

The U.S. and wealthier nations in the European Union are balking.

The rationale for the additional funds and refugee facility is based on donor country failures to follow through cohesively on aid pledges following weather-related disasters. For example, last March, Cyclone Pam devastated islands in the South Pacific but attention quickly turned to the massive earthquake in Nepal soon thereafter. That left small nations such as Vanuatu, which was devastated, to manage its own cleanup without much in the way of international assistance.

Poorer nations blame extreme weather-related disasters on climate change stemming from emission-polluting countries that have more developed and wealthier economies.

The U.N. Paris conference aims to reach an international, legally biding agreement on climate change that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thwart global temperature rise. A separate agreement is being eyed to address losses and damages from extreme weather events, thought to be a result of climate change.

As it stands, the Warsaw Mechanism, adopted in 2013 at the U.N. climate conference in Poland, established a structure to address losses and damages associated with climate change impacts. However that mechanism is due to expire this year when a new climate agreement is reached. Poorer nations who say they are on the front lines of climate change and suffer the worst of its extreme weather ramifications aren’t pleased by the expiration. They want loss and damage provisions to be extended and expanded upon.

Reports indicate a compromise will be sought whereby the Warsaw Mechanism is extended, yet carved out from any legally binding agreement.

Meanwhile, environmental groups are lobbying to make reparations even more punitive and require polluting companies in the private sector to step up and also pay for extreme weather-related damages.

Property and casualty losses have been a point of contention for years in climate-change discussions. How to handle refugee claims is a relatively new issue that comes at a time when Europe is facing a separate refugee crisis of its own, with hordes of people seeking asylum from war-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Nine civil wars are raging in countries from Pakistan to Nigeria.

Adding climate refugees to those numbers may be too much for government representatives to take on at the moment. Without question, however, a refugee facility needs to be discussed if not negotiated, as do further compensation measures for poor countries.

The $100 billion-a-year-commitment by 2020 seems like a lot of money, but increasingly it isn’t looking like enough funding. With extreme weather events on the rise, so too will be the costs of cleanup and the tolls on people’s lives.

And what’s this “displacement coordination facility” for refugees crap? If these countries are looking for someone to blame for pollution, they should look at China. This whole climate change stupidity makes my eyes bleed. What a monstrous scam. This is almost as dumb as claiming climate change causes terrorism. Almost. The refugee so-called crisis the world is facing right now has nothing to do with climate change. It has to do with radical Islam and the rise of the Caliphate. It’s the Hijra on the move and was planned. The US owes no one for the wrath of mother nature and we should immediately put a moratorium on all refugees and immigrants coming into this country for at least two years. Take your fake disasters and your invasion forces and stuff them.
