n 2005, the United Nations Environment Programme predicted that climate change would create 50 million climate refugees by 2010. These people, it was said, would flee a range of disasters including sea level rise, increases in the numbers and severity of hurricanes, and disruption to food production.
The UNEP even provided a handy map. The map shows us the places most at risk including the very sensitive low lying islands of the Pacific and Caribbean.
It so happens that just a few of these islands and other places most at risk have since had censuses, so it should be possible for us now to get some idea of the devastating impact climate change is having on their populations. Lets have a look at the evidence:
Nassau, The Bahamas The 2010 national statistics recorded that the population growth increased to 353,658 persons in The Bahamas. The population change figure increased by 50,047 persons during the last 10 years.
The island-nation of Saint Lucia recorded an overall household population increase of 5 percent from May 2001 to May 2010 based on estimates derived from a complete enumeration of the population of Saint Lucia during the conduct of the recently completed 2010 Population and Housing Census.

Expect 30million more undocumented workers moving to America for Uncle Sam’s handouts.
The Green Menace claims are far more preposterous than anything from the so called “Red Scare hysteria”.
Kick these Marxists in their a&&.
That article pretty much puts the kibosh on any serious trend of planetary warming from any cause. Think about it. If there is absolutely no sign at all of an increase in the rise of sea levels how could the planet be warming beyond the centuries long slow warming due to the inter-glacial period we are in.
They are fleeing Africa and the Middle East, heading for Europe.
Remember: MSM & government kept harping on the "food shortages" aspects of the Islamic revolts, while also couching them in terms of "democracy".
It is partially self-fulling, and very true, though: "Climate Change" WILL cause millions of refugees, due to disruption of food production. One out of three ain't bad, for fanatical Libs, even when they have to manufacture it.
Corn in the US; sugar in Brazil; manioc/cassava in Africa and Southeast Asia; rapeseed in Europe; palm oil in Southeast Asia/Indonesia/India, ALL going for biofuels, taking food, and burning it.
Of course, it isn't any change in Earth's climates doing this; it is "Climate Change" MANDATES to 'fight' the mythical beast...but though highly parsed, the Wramists are correct, in a ghastly way.
Power generation/distribution will be next.
Climate crisis deniers seem to be enemies of the STATE:
Aw, c’mon, you’re just confusing the issue with facts. What about feeeeelings and...and...the children...and the sad polar bears?!
They’re all DEAD, that’s what HAPPENED to them. They ROASTED and FRIED and DROWNED when the OCEANS covered their PITIFUL HUTS, and they DIED! And the CHILDREN died WORSE than the ADULTS! Are you HAPPY now, you CLIMATE HOLOCAUST DENIERS????
(in case anybody missed it)
It had to be a saving miracle belched out by Al Gore.
‘Today we find a world of asymmetric development, unsustainable natural resource use, and continued rural and urban poverty. There is general agreement about the current global environmental and development crisis. It is also known that the consequences of these global changes have the most devastating impacts on the poorest, who historically have had limited entitlements and opportunities for growth.’
BWHAAHaaa I THINK THOSE JASPERS ARE atalkin’ ABOUT WASHINGTON D.C. there.....fair dinkum?
they PREYYED ON OUR FEARSSSSS........THEY BETRAAAAYED OUR TRUSTTTT.....
“What happened to the climate refugees?”
They all died in 1985 when the world became overpopulated with climate scientists with the resulting “population bomb” forcing them to consume the last of the rain forests.
They're the greenskeepers at the latest Trump Seaside resort in the Bahamas.
Good point the supposed Red Scare was based on documented facts (later confirmed by Soviet transcripts). This green scare is the real fake.
Good point we have to let drowning animated polar bears shape our future. Its the new science.
