For whatever reason, the enemies of the United States really are working overtime to get migrant type immigrants into the country. Now that the southern border is closing like a bank safe, the United Nations Human Rights Committee has decided that we the people MUST accept “climate refugees.”
No, really. They did. As if we aren’t experiencing pretty typical winter weather right now.
It is unlawful for governments to return people to countries where their lives might be threatened by the climate crisis, a landmark ruling by the United Nations human rights committee has found.
The judgment – which is the first of its kind – represents a legal “tipping point” and a moment that “opens the doorway” to future protection claims for people whose lives and wellbeing have been threatened due to global heating, experts say.
Tens of millions of people are expected to be displaced by global heating in the next decade.
Does that mean all the snowbirds will move back north and those wine grapes will once again grow well in the British Isles?
Oh, no. That doesn’t seem to be the point of global heating and warming that might well resemble the Middle Ages warm period.
The judgment relates to the case of Ioane Teitiota, a man from the Pacific nation of Kiribati, which is considered one of the countries most threatened by rising sea levels. He applied for protection in New Zealand in 2013, claiming his and his family’s lives were at risk.
The committee heard evidence of overcrowding on the island of South Tarawa, where Teitiota lived, saying that the population there had increased from 1,641 in 1947 to 50,000 in 2010 due to sea level rising leading to other islands becoming uninhabitable, which had led to violence and social tensions.
He also spoke of the lack of fresh water and difficulty growing crops due to salinity of the water table causing serious health issues for his family. He said that as Kiribati was predicted to be uninhabitable in 10 to 15 years, his life was endangered by remaining there.
The country that rejected Teitiota for climate asylum was New Zealand, but if the UN is going to bully them, they are going to bully any industrialized nation into letting in people just because the claim is made that the sea is rising.
