Global warming the next great excuse for the creation of millions of refugees

The international Left is jumping for joy because New Zealand has recognized a first “refugee” family to escape global warming.

Here is a brief account of what happened at Ocean Island Travel:

For the first time, New Zealand officials have accepted a refugee application by a family from Tuvalu that cites global warming as the reason they can’t return to their sinking Pacific island nation . Although there are other reasons why their application was accepted, including their previous time spent living in New Zealand, it is a significant first step towards countries dealing with climate change refugees. “I do see the decision as being quite significant,” Environmental law expert Vernon Rive told the New Zealand Herald .

And, see here at Outside:

The International Refugee Convention still does not recognize climate change as a legitimate cause for displacement, though some have seen the Tuvalu family’s acceptance as a sign that things might be about to change.
