So National Geographic appears to have hit the new low in the “fill in the blank” is caused by global warming race. Now global warming causes Mexicans to illegally enter the United States. That’s what I call frigging amazing!
Yes Mexicans! I never thought I’d see it but now race has entered into the global warming debate. It’s like “EEK! We’re going to have between 1.4 to 6.7 million more Mexicans. They can’t even get the amount right, they’re computer model must be real high quality.
I mean we’ve had global warming causing more Cane Toads, more Poison Ivy, dead Polar Bears, melting glaciers by 2035, etc., but now we’re really hitting a new low with Mexicans.
According to National Geographic……
According a new computer model, a total of nearly seven million additional Mexicans could emigrate to the U.S. by 2080 as a result of reduced crop yields brought about by a hotter, drier climate—assuming other factors influencing immigration remain unchanged.
Can’ you believe the BS? Computer model means garbage in garbage out, or in this case Mexicans out Mexicans in. Then we get the old “assuming” that comes from the base word “assume” which according to the old and correct adage meane it makes an “ass” out of “u” and “me.”
It is more interesting that they only cherry-pick the data from 1995 through 2005. Ummmmm….what about 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010? Could these years have been conveniently eliminated because due to the sucking economy the amount of illegal Mexicans coming to the US has dropped recently?
The claim that reduced crop yield is causing this “trend” picked up on by computer models. Does National Geographic live in a cave nowadays with no communication to the real world? What about the fact you have a massively corrupt government? That drug dealers about run the country? That the poor there have virtually no chance at making it? I guess National Geographic’s computer models ignore some obvious basic facts about Mexico. I guess they must think the whole country is like the last resort they stayed at in Cancun.
There’s more commentary on this showing that the reality is that they’re clueless. That their computer models are bullshit.
Barry Smit, a climate-impact scientist at the University of Guelph in Canada, agreed.
“I wouldn’t take these numbers to the bank,” said Smit, who also wasn’t involved in the research, which is published in this week’s issue of the journalProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
To reach their conclusions, the authors had to make some “heroic assumptions,” Smit said, such as that the current economic and political situations of the U.S. and Mexico won’t change for decades.
No “bank” would take those numbers! I think one could translate the word “heroic” to more like “science fiction.” Then there’s that “assumptions” word again. Make an “ass” out of “u” and “me.”
One of the co-authors even realizes this study is a piece of crap by making the following comment.
“This is the first time anybody’s built a model to do this,” Oppenheimer said. “It’s a simplification, and there are a lot of assumptions, but it’s the start of a learning process.
Oh my yes, “first time” and “learning process” means they have no clue what’s gong on, but it gets publicised in a science journal and then the boneheads at National Geographic pick up on it because it’s more global warming scare-a-rama to get the public on the “warmer” side of the fence.
They even present the argument that we should help Mexico adapt to global warming. WTF? Mexico is a shit-hole, the drug dealers run the place, not the government. The government is corrupt. There is no hope for the average person. I don’t blame them for wanting to live someplace else.
Talk about a total crock of shit, this article is it. It’s a new low on trying to scare people about global warming. Talk about timing. Don’t you think it’s very convenient indeed that his article pops out of the woodwork about the same time we have all this stuff going on in Arizona about illegal aliens and their new law?
Let’s make sure we get everyone all upset that we’re going to have more Mexicans running about because of global warming so we’ll all cow-tow and pay all these carbon taxes and make Al Gore and his buddies rich.
This has to be the biggest load about global warming thus far. National Geographic should be ashamed for publishing this. But let’s not miss any chance to get everyone on the global warming side of things, no matter how ridiculous, insulting or racist.
