Global Warming causes......Environmental Refugees!

Environmental Refugees! 

When the earth warms under the influence of man made global warming, many millions of people will be displaced.  They will become 'environmental refugees', wandering the globe in search of food and water. 

According to The Guardian:

Rising sea levels, desertification and shrinking freshwater supplies will create up to 50 million environmental refugees by the end of the decade, experts warn today. Janos Bogardi, director of the Institute for Environment and Human Security at the United Nations University in Bonn, said creeping environmental deterioration already displaced up to 10 million people a year, and the situation would get worse.

"There are well-founded fears that the number of people fleeing untenable environmental conditions may grow exponentially as the world experiences the effects of climate change," Dr Bogardi said. "This new category of refugee needs to find a place in international agreements. We need to better anticipate support requirements, similar to those of people fleeing other unviable situations." [...]
Hans van Ginkel, UN under-secretary-general and rector of the university, said: "This is a highly complex issue, with global organisations already overwhelmed by the demands of conventionally recognised refugees. However, we should prepare now to define, accept and accommodate this new breed of refugee."

So this dire prediction demands immediate action!  We must act immediately in order to save the lives of millions of innocents who will surely die before the end of the decade.

Wait.  This article was published in 2005.   So the 'end of the decade' they are referring to is 2010!

Where are these refugees?  Where is the desertification and the  'effects of climate change' that will drive these people into the arms of the world community?

They don't exist, of course.  Because Global Warming does not exist.  Because all of this AGW nonsense is blown WAY out of proportion and is based on the most speculative ideas and tenuous connections.

Think I am making this up?  Here is the link to the original story:

So when you read the next set of calamitous predictions, keep in mind that they have never been right in the past.
