Phelim refutes alarmists mass migration claims

Neil_Cavuto_July_2010Earlier this week a new paper was published for the National Academy of Sciences by Michael Oppenheimer, a Princeton professor and lead author of the forthcoming IPCC report.  Oppenheimer made the following claim in his paper:

Between 1.4 million and 6.7 million Mexicans could migrate to the U.S. by 2080 as climate change reduces crop yields and agricultural production in Mexico...The number could amount to 10% of the current population of Mexicans ages 15 to 65.

Flashback to 1975, when a Newsweek article called "The Cooling World" published a similar claim from the National Academy of Sciences:

There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now.

35 years ago environmentalist were claiming that our agriculture was doomed due to upcoming freezing temperatures.  Today, they've only changed their tune by saying increasing temperatures will destroy crops, and tacking on the threat of mass migration to cause more alarm.

Phelim was invited on to the Neil Cavuto show to rebut these ridiculous claims.  The newest claims are worse than the Global Cooling scare because they ignore what history taught us from the medieval warm period—warmer temperatures brings prosperity to nations.

Additionally, Oppenhiemers' research methods have been referred to as "guesswork piled on top of 'what ifs.'"  In short, the type of research we've come to expect from IPCC authors.

As Phelim said, "Immigration is the last great hope of these alarmists."
