Don’t say I didn’t warn you! The Left is advancing climate refugees as the next big crisis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2018

This is a subject I’ve touched on from time to time—I have 51 previous posts on the topic.

 

climate-refugee-2-728

 

I hope to continue to bring it to your attention because it might seem like a fringe issue to you, but you can be sure the NO Borders political machine is advancing it as one more reason to erase borders worldwide (and redistribute wealth from the first world to the third world).

There has been some controversy however about the use of the word “refugee” since the ‘humanitarians’ don’t want the environmentalists appropriating the word.  Nevertheless, from the bits and pieces I have read, they are moving closer to an agreement.

I’m not proposing you buy this expensive book, but am just putting this out to you as one more ‘heads-up’ on the subject.

Facilitating the Resettlement and Rights of Climate Refugees

 

One of the most significant impacts of climate change is migration. Yet, to date, climate-induced migrants are falling within what has been defined by some as a ‘protection gap’. This book addresses this issue, first by identifying precisely where the gap exists, by reviewing the relevant legal tools that are available for those who are currently, and who will in the future be displaced because of climate change. The authors then address the relevant actors; the identity of those deserving protection (displaced individuals), as well as other bearers of rights (migration-hosting states) and obligations (polluting states).

climate refugee book

The authors also address head-on the contentious topic of definitions, concluding with the provocative assertion that the term ‘climate refugees’ is indeed correct and should be relied upon. 

The second part of the book looks to the future by advocating specific legal and institutional pathways. Notably, the authors support the use of international environmental law as the most adequate and suitable regime for the regulation of climate refugees. With respect to the role of institutions, the authors propose a model of ‘cross-governance’, through which a more inclusive and multi-faceted protection regime could be achieved.

“Cross-governance” sound a bit ominous!

Addressing the regulation of climate refugees through a unique collaboration between a refugee lawyer and an environmental lawyer, this book will be of great interest to scholars and professionals in fields including international law, environmental studies, refugee studies and international relations.

You can bet this will be required reading for your little darlings attending Leftwing colleges and universities (LOL! the high price of the book suggests that is where it is headed!).

This may be the only place on the political right where you can find this much coverage (even as little as I have provided) on the subject.

Apocalyptic numbers of “migrants” will overwhelm Europe this century, driven by global warming, say ‘experts’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 24, 2017

Now that the general public is sick of the refugee crisis created by Middle East wars, watch for ‘Climate refugees’ as the fashionable reason for mass migration in 2018!

Before I get to the climate refugee portion of the story, see that the UN says there are 258 million migrants on the move around the world.   (The total population of the US is around 326 million and at present we gain one international migrant every 33 seconds!)

boat_people from Libya

Migrants headed to Europe!

According the UN there are 50 million “migrants” in the United States now making it the top destination for people on the move.

I’m going to emphasize for the umpteenth time that migrants do not equal refugees.  Even if the Left would love for you to get it into your head that every person on the move is a refugee of one sort or another, they are not.

The 1951 UN Refugee Convention  (still in effect) defined a refugee as follows:

“A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it..”[11]

 

Do you see anything in there about a refugee being someone running from a war zone, anything about needing a job, anything about being poor, anything about leaving a natural disaster area, anything about fearing gang violence, anything about the weather changing at home? NO!

So the vast majority of people on the move are NOT refugees, they are simply migrants.

But, watch for the on-going efforts of the borderless world pushers to try to claim they all are refugees.

So here is what the UN reported this week about migrants of all stripes.

The US has the highest number of migrants of any country in the world!

From Reuters:

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – An estimated 258 million people are international migrants, a figure that has surged by a half since the turn of the century, the United Nations said on Monday.

One in ten of those people is a refugee or asylum seeker, the U.N. said in a report on migration trends and developments released to coincide with International Migrants Day.

Globally, 3.4 percent of the population consists of international migrants, meaning someone who lives in a country other than the country where they were born, it said.

[….]

The rights of migrants and the need for safe, well-managed migration policies are included in the set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted unanimously by the U.N. member nations in 2015, and the U.N is planning an international conference on migration late next year.

Other figures showed that migration contributed 42 percent of the population growth in Northern America between 2000 and 2015, and that the population in Europe would have declined during that time period without migration.

The biggest number of international migrants, nearly 50 million, live in the United States. Saudi Arabia, Germany and Russia have about 12 million international migrants each, followed by the UK with almost nine million, it said. [S.A. does permit large numbers of foreign workers, but they are not voting citizens.—ed]

The greatest number of migrants, 106 million, came from Asia, it said.

Beware the CLIMATE REFUGEE ruse!

climate-refugee-2-728

Off and on over the years I’ve followed the growth of the climate refugee movement. (See my archive on the topic by clicking here.)

I believe it will be taking off big time in 2018. (It’s a twofer: They will be able to whack the President on two things at once—refugees and global warming!)

The ‘climate refugee’ activists have been somewhat held back because so many thinking people question the validity of the global warming issue in the first place, and they have been stymied by internal political arguments about the word ‘refugee.’

Longtime promoters of the humanitarian ‘refugee’ redistribution of people, don’t want the word ‘refugee’ sullied or otherwise messed with.  But, those pushing redistribution of people and wealth using the climate argument want to latch on to the sexy word—refugees—that they know the media loves. And also because the word implies that we have some responsibility for them.

It’s just a guess, but I think that the glow is off that word for many people after more than a decade of being lectured and told that western countries must absorb the Muslim world’s problems by moving massive numbers of mostly illegitimate ‘refugees’ (migrants!) to the West.

The one-worlders need a new excuse, so here comes global warming creating ‘climate refugees.’ 

As you might guess, I set alerts to receive certain types of news from around the world every day.  One of those alerts is for ‘climate refugees,’ another is for ‘Syria refugees.’

The Syria alert has been packed with at least two dozen daily stories for the last few years, but I noticed lately that the ‘climate refugees’ stories are becoming almost as numerous!  What the heck!

Here is one (PBS News Hour) that is being blasted everywhere this week.

Global warming could drive 660,000 more people per year to Europe

The number of asylum seekers fleeing their home countries to the European Union will increase 188 percent — to 660,000 applications per year — by 2100 if carbon emissions and global warming continue on their current path, according to new estimates published Thursday in Science Magazine.

But, do you see what they have done here?

“Asylum seekers,” after going through a legal process and being granted asylum, are REFUGEES.  They are once again making the leap—making you think that those moving because of changing weather at home are legitimate refugees!  It follows that if they are refugees, you are primed to think that you must care for them, invite them to your town or some such nonsense.

There is a rebuttal of Science mag here.

And, here is another story, this one from Reuters, which rightly refers to the people moving due to changing weather as ‘migrants.’

To wrap up with some holiday cheer! There is even a story this week about Santa moving to the South Pole because of global warming.  Trying to be cute(?) as they plant the R-word here:

Al Gore: Syrian civil war and Arab Spring both resulted from climate change/food riots

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 1, 2017

On the South Korean island of Jeju. http://paradiseintheworld.com/jeju-island-south-korea/

Apparently, not a peep from Gore in his recent speech at the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity about Islamic supremacists like ISIS and Inter-Islam civil wars causing unrest throughout a large portion of the world.

I wonder how much he was paid to speak at the posh paradise island resort?

From the Korea Herald:

Climate crisis behind political riots and refugees

JEJU ISLAND — Climate crisis-induced food shortages were behind the Arab revolutions in 2010 known as the Arab Spring, former United States Vice President Al Gore said Thursday, making the case for action to counter climate change as a growing cause of social instability.

Gore, vice president from 1993-2001 under former President Bill Clinton, was giving a speech on “Challenges and Opportunities of Climate Change” at the on-going Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity on this resort island.

Spark that began Arab Spring was about food….

“(It was) a significant event because a food vendor in Tunisia at the peak of the food crisis set himself on fire and the video of that self-immolation caused the Arab Spring,” he said, referring to the democracy protests that originated in Tunisia. “His last words were not ‘Down with the Tyrant,’ his last words were ‘How am I supposed to live?’

“(Nevertheless) the connection between climate crisis and political instability is an issue that has not yet received enough attention,” he stressed.

[….]

Also behind the outbreak of the Syrian civil war were climate change-triggered food problems, Gore also said, highlighting that a climate-related drought from 2006-2010 destroyed 60 percent of all the farms in the country and drove 1.5 million climate refugees into the cities of Syria.

“When these climate refugees collided with another 1.5 million refugees from the Iraq War in the cities of Syria, the social explosion happened,” according to Gore.

Sheesh!

See my ‘Climate refugee’ category where 50 posts are archived.  The world ‘refugee crisis’ will never be resolved because even if all of the Islam-generated strife ended tomorrow, the Far Left is busy readying a new reason to open your wallets and your homes throughout the west and invite in the third world.

Will Donald Trump “lead us into the wilderness” today on Paris Climate Accord? I have never looked at the ‘Accord,’ does it make us responsible for MORE refugees?  Does anyone know?

Mr. Cool goes to Milan, is paid millions to announce that “climate refugees” will flood the first world

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2017

Changing the subject?

Just in case Islam-generated conflicts run out of steam in the Middle East and Africa, Barack Obama crossed the Atlantic to collect a speaking fee reportedly in the $3 million range to pronounce that, as a result of global warming there would be a refugee crisis “unprecedented in human history.”

Unbuttoned to mid-chest: We are told that Mr. Cool forgot his tie. If you are a former President of the US staying in what must be the most expensive hotel in the city, isn’t it possible to send out for a wonderful selection of beautiful ties? http://www.nationalreview.com/article/447465/obama-climate-speech-milan-offered-nothing-new

He wants to make sure that world Open Borders activists (and global corporations looking for cheap labor) wouldn’t run out of reasons to tear down borders to the first world (if Islamic conflicts fail to do a good enough job).

Obama talked extensively in the speech about the impact of warming, while several reports lately say the earth is entering a cooling period.  So which is it?

Below is some of what Obama said in what some, here are calling a “contradictory speech.”

From the UK Independent:

Climate change could produce a refugee crisis that is “unprecedented in human history”, Barack Obama has warned as he stressed global warming was the most pressing issue of the age.

Speaking at an international food conference in Milan, the former US President said rising temperatures were already making it more difficult to grow crops and rising food prices were “leading to political instability”.

“Floods on sunny days”—bad, very bad….

He said the United States was currently experiencing “floods on sunny days”, increased wildfires and, in Alaska, increased coastal erosion as the ice melts and no country was “immune” to the problem.

Climate refugees on the march….

If world leaders put aside “parochial interests” and took action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by enough to restrict the rise to one or two degrees Celsius, then humanity would probably be able to cope. [So, might we shut up about this issue if sunspot activity and natural cycles restrict the rise to one or two degrees?—ed]

Failing to do this, Mr Obama warned, increased the risk of “catastrophic” effects in the future, “not only real threats to food security, but also increases in conflict as a consequence of scarcity and greater refugee and migration patterns”.

“If those rain patterns change, then you could see hundreds of millions of people who suddenly find themselves unable to feed themselves, because they’re already at subsistence levels.

“And the amount of migration, the number of refugees that could be resulting from something like that, would be unprecedented in human history.”

Dare I mention the scientific notion of carrying capacity and that a population die-off might be mother earth’s way of staying in balance (okay stone me!).

Continue reading here.

I have a ‘Climate Refugees’ category with 49 previous posts on the topic, here.  I don’t know if they have settled their differences, but early-on the climate refugee agitators were at odds with the ‘humanitarian’ refugee agitators over the use of the word “refugee.”  ‘Humanitarians’ were angered by environmentalists stealing the word that they had over decades built up as one that invokes warm and fuzzy feelings among people who know nothing.

Where do WE put a billion people?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

The ‘WE’ of course being the great planners and social engineers of the universe, including the environmentalists and the human rights gang (the UN surely).

In a recent article in Nature, the authors say the world’s population will grow by 1 billion by 2030 and they are plotting where would it be best for the earth to put that next billion (if they were granted permission I suppose to move people around the globe—but wait! Isn’t that what the UN is already doing without permission?).

No surprise! Most of the population that will expand is in Africa and Asia so those people would presumably need to be moved.

Here is the story at the Daily Mail:

Academics Richard T.T. Forman and Jinguo Wu mapped out areas around the world where these additional people could live most sustainably.

[They] ruled out regions with already dense populations as well as areas with high water stress, extreme climates and unique species.

[….]

In Nature, the two professors called for ‘worldwide coordination’ to promote a balanced population in a way that would minimize the ‘already heavy ecological footprint on our finite Earth’.

So check it out.  Do you live in a population dump target zone? Yellow! And, to a lesser degree blue!

 

screenshot-31

 

Sure looks like the excess population of the Middle East/North Africa would be moved elsewhere.  Did you ever wonder why there is complete silence on the subject of excessive population growth in Muslim countries?

UN family planning for Muslims!

No, you know the answer, these population police are afraid to tell Muslims that they need to stick to 2 children per family to save the planet! Ha! Ha! I would love to see the new Secretary General of the UN—Antonio Guterres—take on that project (UN family planning for Muslims!). Hey, if we send so much money to the UN maybe a Trump administration could demand that such a program be launched!

Although we haven’t said much about it lately, you might be interested in our ‘Climate refugees’ category because although I’m not a big conspiracy hunter it doesn’t take much to figure out that the great minds and social engineers are busy getting all this in place.  Maybe the Refugee Program is part of the overall plan to soften us up for kill.

2030 is not far away!

Sec. of State John Kerry: Climate refugees our next move to erase borders

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 10, 2015

Thanks to reader Joanne for sending us this bit of news from one-worlder John Kerry. Kerry must be so thrilled to combine two of the the Left’s favorite pet propaganda campaigns—global warming and refugees.

It is not “new” as Kerry claims, we have an entire category devoted to so-called ‘climate refugees,’ go here (46 previous posts) for more of this nonsense.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Climate refugees coming to a town near you? I love this illustration! It comes from Diplo (http://www.diplomacy.edu/blog/climate-refugees-new-concept-move)

From Breitbart:

Secretary of State John Kerry warns the world that more and more people will be fleeing the devastation caused by global warming. “It’s something new. We have climate refugees today,” he said during a town hall event about the oceans.

Kerry described climate refugees as people who had to leave their homes because of drought, rising sea levels, and thawing permafrost.

[….]

International organizations, like the United Nations, he admitted, would have to codify the term “climate refugee” and put it into law. That would grant special immigration privileges to immigrants claiming refugee status, allowing them to move to other countries.

“I think it’s just a matter of time before it fits in under a category and countries have — and the refugee process has legitimately incorporated it into our policy,” Kerry said.

For anyone interested, there has been a huge controversy between the environmentalist ‘climate refugee’ pushers and the ‘humanitarian refugee’ establishment over definitions.  If you go to earlier posts in my ‘climate refugee category’ you will see what I mean.

Alaskan island residents looking to become first American climate refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2015

The people who chose to build their town on an island are now whining that the bad old USA needs to save them as the island is supposedly sinking.

News flash! Islands submerge and often reappear again over centuries the world over as part of the dynamism that is our planet.

Back in the ’70’s I wrote a report about islands off the coast of Virginia that had whole towns on them (hotels, schools, cemeteries) that began to be uninhabitable by the early 1900’s as they were buffeted by major east coast storms (before cars were widely used! before global warming!).  The people simply recognized that it would be foolish to stay, and moved inland.   They didn’t cry out to the federal government to save them from their original choice.

Now we have these whiny Alaskan islanders who wonder if the federal government will leave them there to die!

kivalina

Alaska’s Kivalina Island.

Here is the news at HNGN:

Kivalina is located on a very thin barrier reef island between the Chukchi Sea and the Kivalina Lagoon, in the northwest of Alaska, above the Arctic Circle. And it may not be there in a decade, thanks to climate change.

In approximately 10 years, the village of Kivalina in northwestern Alaska could be submerged, giving its approximately 400 residents the ubiquitous honor of becoming the first climate change refugees of America, so much so that the U.S. government says it may be too dangerous to live there.

Waahhhh! Is the US government going to leave us here to die?

“If we’re still here in 10 years time we either wait for the flood and die, or just walk away and go someplace else. The U.S. government imposed this Western lifestyle on us, gave us their burdens and now they expect us to pick everything up and move it ourselves. What kind of government does that?” Swan (a local elected official) asked while speaking to the BBC.

You pick it up and move it yourself!  And, maybe whaling is going the way of the buggy whip anyway!

One more case in the PR campaign that is building for governments (the US taxpayer mostly!) to take care of ‘helpless’ people worldwide while they bash America!

See our category—Climate refugees for more on this newest excuse for the redistribution of wealth and people.

Climate refugee news: New Zealand’s highest court rejects first ‘climate refugee’ asylum appeal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2015

For our many new readers, you may not know that international Leftists and NO borders advocates are pushing the meme that there are millions of so-called ‘climate refugees’ that must be taken into first world countries as refugees because the climate is changing where they now live.

You are probably laughing at how ridiculous this sounds, but believe me the issue is getting legs especially now that the Vatican is weighing in.

climate refugee

Watch for it! The next big hue and cry will be for the US and other first world countries to save climate refugees! Photo here: http://www1.american.edu/ted/ICE/maldives.html

Sensibly, New Zealand’s Supreme Court has ruled that, in an important test case, the man claiming that he would suffer harm if returned to the island nation of Kiribati must be deported.  He is not a refugee.

Remember the other day, I mentioned that in order for someone to be a legitimate refugee they must prove they would be PERSECUTED if returned to their country of origin and that Obama and his minions in the US State Department are working day and night to eviscerate refugee protection programs by deeming the ‘children’ from Central America as refugees when they are no such thing.

Economic migrants, people trying to escape crime or changes in the weather are NOT refugees.

Thankfully, in this case, the New Zealand court is demanding adherence to the long-standing definition of the word “refugee.”

From Sky News:

A Pacific Islander who applied to the New Zealand government to give him status as the world’s first climate refugee has had his appeal turned down.

Ioane Teitiota, 38, argued he should not be sent back to the island nation of Kiribati because it was under threat due to rising seas.

That, he argued, made it unsafe for him and his family.

However, while NZ’s Supreme Court agreed that the tiny nation of about 100,000 people was suffering environmental degradation, it said Mr Teitiota’s application did not meet the legal definition of a refugee because he was not facing persecution.

“While Kiribati undoubtedly faces challenges, Mr Teitiota does not, if returned, face ‘serious harm’,” the Supreme Court said in a ruling released on Monday.

Unfortunately, the court left the door open for a better test case.

In other ‘climate refugee’ news….

* Ireland’s President says we need to save climate refugees, here.  This made me laugh because I envisioned some Irishman claiming he was a climate refugee in someplace like Tahiti because it was just too darned cold and rainy in Ireland!

* In a new report, the Leftists in Norway say there were 20 million climate refugees around the world in 2014, here.

* And, finally, a good piece at the Washington Post of all places debunking this as another Leftist scare tactic, here.  Love it!

For more of this ridiculousness, see our ‘Climate refugees’ category going back several years, here.

IRC’s Miliband: Climate change creating refugees, not a word about the rise of ISIS and Islamic terrorism

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 30, 2015

The hard Lefties like David Miliband, CEO of the largest (in financial terms) of the US refugee resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), says we need to increase our refugee ceiling for the coming fiscal year from 70,000 to 80,000 (beginning Oct. 1, 2015) to help rescue the hordes of climate refugees on the march around the world.

Embrace political Islam!

To hear him tell it, climate, not Islamic terrorism, is the driver of the wars that are displacing people across the globe. That doesn’t surprise us because in 2013 Miliband said we “must embrace political Islamism.”

Not a word here either that Miliband is the first one to get the ball rolling on Syrian resettlement by asking Obama to admit 65,000 (65,000!) Syrians to the US before Obama leaves office.  The vast majority, of those resettled so far, are Muslims, not the persecuted Christians!

Miliband is the former foreign secretary of the UK and brother to “Red Ed” who took a bashing along with his Labor Party in recent UK elections.  Miliband’s fans include George Soros, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power etc.  (see them welcoming him to NYC here).

This is what Miliband told Reuters (reported here at Business Insider):

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A historic 52 million people are fleeing conflict worldwide, a trend that will intensify over the next two decades because of climate change, International Rescue Committee chief David Miliband said on Friday.

Will climate refugees soon be on the march to your town?

“One of the drivers of displacement and potential conflict over the next 10 to 20 years will be climate (change) – resource scarcity,” said Miliband, a former foreign minister of Great Britain. “Climate change is going to compound the cocktail that’s driving war and displacement.”

Miliband said there were 16 million refugees and 36 million people displaced in their own countries, typically by civil war. That is the largest number of people fleeing persecution since World War Two, he said during a Reuters Newsmaker event in New York.

“Do I think the current level is a blip or a trend?” Miliband said. “I would say it’s a trend.”

[….]

Miliband, whose relief and development agency is helping vulnerable people in 35 countries, urged the United States to raise its ceiling for resettling refugees to 80,000 from the current 70,000.

The International Rescue Committee and the other eight resettlement contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees so they are always urging an increase in numbers!

By the way see the Green Left here also on the Climate refugee bandwagon.  It is all about the weather and nothing to do with Islamic supremacists seeking world dominance!

How wealthy is the IRC?

I just had a look at the most recent Form 990(2013) for the IRC.  It took in that year, from gifts, grants and contributions, $451,017,146 (nearly a half billion $) and $305,481,609 came from YOU!  They are thus 68% taxpayer funded.

Their former CEO pulled in a very handsome salary and benefits package totaling $485,321 to run a NON-PROFIT!  We can assume that David Miliband didn’t move across the Atlantic for much less than that! Probably next year’s tax return will report Miliband’s compensation package.

Doing well by doing good (again)!

What was even more interesting to me is the fact that they have 2 other employees who make over $300,000 a year, and 8 who make over $200,000 A YEAR!   To find those numbers you have to go all the way to page 175 of a 218 page tax return!

Endnote:

For more on the Climate refugee hysteria, go to our special category here.  When I first started following this issue a few years ago, there was a conflict on-going about using the word “refugee” to define those displaced (supposedly) by global warming.  The ‘humanitarians’ didn’t want the environmentalists mucking around with their word —refugee.  I see they now must have patched things up and ‘climate refugee’ is an acceptable term!

Pope: Climate change the “moral issue of our time;” get ready for climate refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 10, 2015

We have been so busy reporting on the advance of the Muslim migration (the Hijra), the stealth jihad on the West, that we haven’t been paying enough attention to the ‘climate refugee’ pushers working to promote the idea that global warming means that you must pony-up more cash and welcome more impoverished refugees to your towns.

Let the cheering begin….

I bet the Leftwing US Conference of Catholic Bishops and thousands of Catholic Charities around the country will cheer this news—it means more government money in their pockets as more third worlders will be re-located to your towns and cities all because of some very questionable science.

Here is the latest news,  The Pope is going to address the perils of ‘climate change.’  From Gazettenet.com:

HAYDENVILLE — Get ready to cheer.

Sometime this summer the Vatican will publish Pope Francis’ papal encyclical on the environment. This document, observers believe, will describe the current and future threats to our planet posed by climate change and show how vulnerable populations — especially the poor — will suffer from these perils. The document is also expected to call for vigorous, worldwide action to halt global warming.

An encyclical is the highest teaching issued by a pope. Pope Francis has been meeting with prominent scientists for over a year to obtain their input, guidance and advice about how he should address the issue of climate change. When the “eco-encyclical” (as it is being called) is published, it will be the first time a Catholic leader has dedicated an entire encyclical to environmental issues.

Those close to the Pope predict that he will say that climate change is not some distant danger, something to be avoided. Rather, he will say that a huge number of people globally are already experiencing severe hardship — notably a lack of food, water and farmable land — due to climate change. The Pope may reference the countless number of climate refugees who have already begun to flee from regions where water is rising or absent — areas where droughts, floods and once-a-century storms now occur with regularity.

Most observers believe, moreover, that in keeping with his emphasis on the plight of the poor, Pope Francis will describe the ways in which climate change will inflict particular pain on the world’s disadvantaged populations.

Get ready to cheer when Pope Francis calls climate change “the moral issue of our time.” According to Jeff Nesbit, who blogs on the site Faith Matters, “Climate change is rapidly becoming the moral issue of our time, and this Pope both recognizes it and wishes to help direct the church in that effort.”   [So, the march of militant Islam slaughtering Christians across the globe isn’t the moral issue of our time?—ed]

One more reason why conservative Catholics will leave the church in droves, asking as they go: Can’t we just worship without being subjected to a political harangue?

For all of our coverage of ‘climate refugees’ go here.
