Pushing for illegal immigrants is the newest trend in convoluted way that liberals are trying to push to try and justify their outlandish opinions and discredit everyone else's. One of their favorite ways is to claim that their policies are "good for the environment," and conversely, conservative policies cause global warming. No matter how far removed the policies are from climatology, they'll always make some connection.
A Washington Democrat argued that one reason we need bike taxes is that bikers contribute to global warming because of their “increased heart rate and respiration” that leads to greater CO2 emissions.
Christie Hefner (Hugh Hefner's daughter) blamed Chicago violence not on gun control measures that prohibit law-abiding citizens from defending themselves, but on global warming. Higher temperatures, she said, contribute to higher gun violence numbers.
The latest is from an op-ed that the LA Times ran a couple days ago by Bill McKibben, a professor at Middlebury College in Vermont. He argued that we need more illegal immigrants, namely from Mexico, because that would help reduce global warming. Here’s how he made the connection to illegal immigrants:
"It's true that the typical person from a developing nation would produce more carbon once she adopted an American lifestyle, but she also probably would have fewer children. A December report from the Pew Research Center report showed that birthrates in the U.S. were dropping faster among Mexican American women and women who immigrated from Mexico than among any other group. This is a trend reflected among all Latinas in the U.S. As an immigrant mother of two from the Dominican Republic told the New York Times: "Before, I probably would have been pressured to have more, [but] living in the United States, I don't have family members close by to help me, and it takes a village to raise a child. So the feeling is, keep what you have right now." Her two grandmothers had had a total of 27 children. The carbon math, in other words, may well be a wash."
So there’s the connection. A reduction in the birth rate might occur in America the more we allow illegal immigrants into this country. Mexicans that otherwise would have had more kids in their home country. This is why this professor allegedly only had one child. He even wrote a book called Maybe One: An Argument for Smaller Families.
Once again, the problem is the human race, and the solution is the same: abortion, sterilization, contraceptives, even homosexuality. Anything that prevents humans from reproducing means a smaller global “carbon footprint.”
The author then goes on to excoriate "white America" for continuing to vote for climate deniers. Maybe he, like another college professor, thinks these "climate deniers" should be executed for the future murder of millions of people. Maybe mass extermination of the white race would be good for the environment.
