LA Times Op-Ed: Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants Will Curb Global Warming

The Los Angeles Times ran a Thursday editorial by Middlebury College Professor Bill McKibben arguing that allowing millions of illegal immigrants into America will reduce global warming.


“I feel it's urgent that we get real immigration reform, allowing millions to step out of the shadows and on to a broad path toward citizenship,” wrote McKibben. “It will help, not hurt, our environmental efforts, and potentially in deep and powerful ways.”


McKibben says that while the average American has a larger carbon footprint than a person living in the developing world, bringing more immigrants to America would likely reduce their tendency to have higher birthrates, thereby creating less carbon-producing people. 


“It's true that the typical person from a developing nation would produce more carbon once she adopted an American lifestyle,” says McKibben, “but she also probably would have fewer children.”—Breitbart, 1 page

So I guess from now on the left is going to use global warming scare tactics to justify anything they want. Want to prevent global warming? Raise taxes. Redistribute wealth. Want to prevent global warming? Open the borders up to anyone who wants to come in. Want to prevent global warming? Ban guns. Want to prevent global warming? Stop the consumption of meat and dairy products. Want to prevent global warming? Drop drones on American soil and put a moratorium on soda.
