This article today on Drudge reminded me that I had meant to tell you about Refugees International’s new super-dooper Center for the Study of Climate Displacement. This is going to be the hottest new craze in the world refugee “crisis.” Nevermind that man has been moving due to changes in the climate throughout human history. Just ask those Neanderthals what they thought of that pesky Ice Age.
Here is how the Reuters article begins:
ADDIS ABABA, Aug 24 (Reuters) – African leaders will ask rich nations for $67 billion per year to mitigate the impact of global warming on the world’s poorest continent, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Monday.
Ten leaders are holding talks at African Union (AU) headquarters in the Ethiopian capital to try to agree a common stance ahead of a U.N. summit on climate change in Copenhagen in December.
Experts say Africa contributes little to the pollution blamed for warming, but is likely to be hit hardest by the droughts, floods, heatwaves and rising sea levels forecast if climate change is not checked.
The draft resolution, which must still be approved by the 10 leaders, called for rich countries to pay $67 billion annually to counter the impact of global warming in Africa.
Instead of questioning this extortion project, we have groups like Refugees International playing right into it. Mark my words, the West is going to “owe” the world either big bucks or open borders (or both!) because of bogus global warming created, they claim, by greedy white people. Refugees International wants in on the bash-the-West racket and to raise funds from the “crisis.”
Washington, DC — Refugees International announced plans to establish the Ken and Darcy Bacon Center for the Study of Climate Displacement today. The Center will use Refugees International’s successful advocacy model to work towards stronger policies and structures that meet the needs of the tens of millions of people expected to be displaced by climate change in the coming decades.
You gotta hand it to them. They have now figured out how to capitalize on two of the left’s money-raising schemes—refugees and climate change. And, they have managed with this project to wrap into one neat package two major areas that International Leftists are aiming for—open borders and the redistribution of wealth.
