From activists in the global warming industrial complex:
“This is not a matter of charity or generosity but one of justice and reparation.”
We chuckle about the concept of “climate refugees” moving around the world to get away from the weather, but these Leftist agitators are very serious and working every day on their PR campaign to promote this concept that the first world is required to take them in, or at least throw gobs of money at the wandering millions of so-called climate refugees (aka climate migrants).
They are referring to them here as “climate migrants” because their leftist ideological brothers in the human rights industrial complex don’t like them using the word “refugee.” They have been squabbling over the terminology, as you will see if you visit our ‘climate refugees’ category.
Here is news from Canada as it is scolded by the nags:
The federal government should create a new “climate migrants” immigration class to better prepare for the inflow of people fleeing extreme climate change, says a new Canadian report.
The unique study by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives urges Ottawa to formulate policies that would suspend deportations of arrived migrants whose homeland is affected by climate change, grant resident status to climate migrants on humanitarian grounds, and permit them to enter Canada under refugee resettlement programs.
“In the coming years, climate change will compel hundreds of millions of people to relocate and . . . many forced migrants will remain in nearby poor regions in the Global South,” says the study, to be released Wednesday.
“Greater support and certainty would be provided if Canada created a new immigration class of ‘climate migrants’ along with targets and programs to ensure Canada absorbs its fair share of those migrants. A potentially larger challenge is rallying public opinion and support for those climate migrants.”
