Is Merkel Drunk?
I realize Octoberfest must have concluded by now… but it seems that German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have had a lot of extra mugs of extra stout, extra strong beer. I don’t have any other explanation for her behavior or her twisted thinking. She must be drunk I mean her country is being buried in Middle East refugees, many of whom are setting up shop in tiny towns in huge numbers. Some say Germany is teetering on the edge of anarchy and possibly worse, civil war.
The refugees are flooding out or war torn countries but Merkel says the big problem is Climate Change. What? No, really she thinks controlling Global Warming is the key to stemming the flow of refugees. I have this crazy idea that ending terrorist movements like the Islamic State, or ending the civil war in Syria would actually be the key to keeping people in the countries where they were born.
So called experts from the United Nations say governments' emissions-cutting pledges ahead of a global conference in Paris beginning this month aren't yet enough. They warn the global temperature could rise by three and a half degrees by the end of the century. Of course most of their predictions have been wrong over and over again but don’t let that bother you. It sure doesn’t bother Chancellor Merkel.
Merkel said in a speech Tuesday "if we don't manage this, that could be a reason for many, many refugee movements" around the world.
Scientists say a temperature rise over 2 degrees Celsius could have profound, irreversible effects on the climate. Of course they do. They are the same crew that is still holding on to the failed predictions made by the United Nations on numerous occasions, for example:
In 2005, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) warned that imminent sea-level rises, increased hurricanes, and desertification caused by “man-made global warming” would lead to massive population disruptions. In a handy map, the organization highlighted areas that were supposed to be particularly vulnerable in terms of producing “climate refugees.” Especially at risk were regions such as the Caribbean and low-lying Pacific islands, along with coastal areas.
The 2005 UNEP predictions claimed that, by 2010, some 50 million “climate refugees” would be frantically fleeing from those regions of the globe. However, not only did the areas in question fail to produce a single “climate refugee,” by 2010, population levels for those regions were actually still soaring. In many cases, the areas that were supposed to be producing waves of “climate refugees” and becoming uninhabitable turned out to be some of the fastest-growing places on Earth.
In the Bahamas, for example, according to the 2010 census, there was a major increase in population, going from around 300,000 in 2000 to more than 350,000 by 2010. The population of St. Lucia, meanwhile, grew by five percent during the same period. The Seychelles grew by about 10 percent. The Solomon Islands also witnessed a major population boom during that time frame, gaining another 100,000 people, or an increase of about 25 percent.
In China, meanwhile, the top six fastest growing cities were all within the areas highlighted by the UN as likely sources of “climate refugees.” Many of the fastest-growing U.S. cities were also within or close to “climate refugee” danger zones touted by the UN.
Anyway- let’s have another cold one Angela and review some other predictions that are yet to come true, ok?
For well over a decade now, climate alarmists have been claiming that snow would soon become a thing of the past. In March 2000, for example, “senior research scientist” David Viner, working at the time for the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, told the U.K. Independent that within “a few years,” snowfall would become “a very rare and exciting event” in Britain. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he was quoted as claiming in the article, headlined “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past.”
The very next year, snowfall across the United Kingdom increased by more than 50 percent.
Hey the good news about snow is it keeps the beer cold. Right Angie?
