The biggest problem with Modern American Democracy is that it puts power, resources and opportunity in the hands of vast numbers of people who have nothing to lose if these valuables are wasted and are generally immune from many of the negative externalities. This is taken to an extreme mathematical limit with the status of illegal immigrants in so-called sanctuary cities. Ann Coulter gets things about 75% right in her explanation of the problem below.
Mass Third World immigration is a triple whammy for the environment because:
1.Millions more people are tromping through our country;
2.The new people do not share Americansâ€™ love of nature and cleanliness; and
3.Weâ€™re not allowed to criticize them.
All three of these statements by Ms. Coulter are factually accurate. Problem 1 would probably be survivable and two could be rapidly changed. The real nut of the problem here is point number three. You are never allowed to criticize these non-white people without being called Â¡RACIST! The video below shows what Ann is discussing.
So the evidence is right Governor Jerry Brown’s face every day. There are too many people in California with no ties or loyalty to the place and therefore, they predictably trash the places they rent or squat in. The state is an ongoing environmental disaster. Yet the people trashing it also vote him into office so he has to fight environmental degradation in a way that leaves them blameless and that pins the tail on a different culprit. All bad things are caused by Global Warming which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Evil Republican Party.
The L A Times interviewed California Governor Brown about the states climate campaign with the results presented in an April 15, 2017 article entitled â€œIâ€™m not giving up hopeâ€ which revealed his frustrations, concerns and views about lack of support among other states regarding Californiaâ€™s climate change program.
Reputable scientists with decades in the field don’t buy the politically expedient Climate Scientology.*
Governor Brownâ€™s claim that higher temperatures are being caused by man made CO2 emissions is far from certain as addressed by climate scientist Dr. Judith Curry who documented flaws and failures of climate models claiming that man made CO2 emissions are driving global temperatures. Her study found that: â€œThe climate model simulation results for the 21st century reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) do not include key elements of climate variability, and hence are not useful as projections for how the 21st century will actually evolve.â€
And yet Gerry Brown’s eyes are not lying anywhere near as much as he is. The environment is being torn to pieces – by the very immigrants Gerry Brown finds it politically expedient to restock the population of his state with.
Writing in an environmental journal at New York University, Rosa P. Oakes described the â€œreprehensibleâ€ damage being done to â€œtowering cactus, Joshua trees, flowering cactus varieties, colorful wildflowers and rock formationsâ€ by illegals. With accompanying photos, she noted that the immigrantsâ€™ litter included â€œabandoned vehicles â€¦ used needles, drug paraphernalia, plastic grocery bags, paper products, empty water containers, blankets, clothing, used disposable diapers, among other things.â€
Maybe Ann Coulter is about 98% correct instead. We can have a low-skilled immigrant nation that is environmentally toxic or a well-bonded nation of common culture that loves the ground they stand on. People who are committed to a nation love its natural beauty and husband its natural resources with diligent responsibility. People who YOLO it over the border, send the money back home and then leave when they feel the welfare system isn’t being generous enough have no reason to care whether or not they crap on the streets.
Mass human migrations and the cultural disintegrations that predictably come with them are gargantuan anthropogenic environmental disasters. It would take an eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera, to pollute the environment of The American West more than large masses of humanity with no skin in the game and no concern for the communities they are just passing through. “Give a hoot! Don’t Pollute!” was more accurate than the old cartoon owl in the commercials ever realized.
