Skip to comments.LA Times: Illegal Immigration Can Reduce Global Warming
Posted on 03/14/2013 1:44:06 PM PDT by lowbridge
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.

You make this kind of stupid up. LA Times has really gone full moonbat. What a bunch of morons.
McKibben is a well known moonbat and climate fraud.
What about illegals riding in on asteroids? Do they cause global warming?
Hahaha! Liberals are so stupid.
Middlebury College is one of the elite liberal-arts colleges where you can send your kid after he's rejected by the Ivies, and have some hope that his life isn't wasted .... Middlebury is No. 2 or 3 in the liberal-arts college stack ..... lots of Up East parents have been saved from killing themselves, by an acceptance letter from one of those colleges.
Places like Middlebury are exactly what Garry Trudeau had in mind, when he went after them all with his "Walden" parody.
1st it gets rid of global warming according to the LA Times.
2nd it gets rid of unemployment and raises the standard of living for everybody according to several dingbats.
Ain't life wonderful??? (mucho sarcasm)
Let’s shoot every liberal out into space. I bet that would end global warming.
Yeah, these illegal aliens are real environmental stewards!
In the 3rd world, they may have a small imprint, but when they come here they use the same resources we all do and they don’t recycle! Leave them in the 3rd world and that might help! Ask some ranchers on the border how often their water is left running and property destroyed by trespassing aliens.

Or maybe the MILLIONS of acres burned down on our public lands by illegal alien drug cartels. And the ones they don’t burn down, they destroy with banned chemicals.
These open borders asshats will tell whatever lie that pops into their heads to justify their stance won’t they?
I think....I think.....I think my HEAD IS GONNA EXPLODE!
This article proves the fact that liberalism is a BRAIN DISEASE of the first magnitude!
Libtard, tenured Commie Professor - Wrong
Illegal Immigrants are good for the US - Wrong
Global Warming is Real - Wrong
What the hell happened to my country?
It is sooo damn obvious that Daylight Saving Time contributes to global warming. We are subjecting the planet to an extra hour of sunshine each day, so it has to have some effect.
Illegals, is there anything they can’t do?
:: bringing more immigrants to America would likely reduce their tendency to have higher birthrates, thereby creating less carbon-producing people. ::
Mr. Professor doesn’t fully understand this “procreation” concept.
You neglected the most wonderful result of this “brilliant” plan. It boggles the mind.
If everyone in the world emigrated to the United States of America, no one will have a “THOSE PEOPLE” to declare war on. The whole world will be AMERICANS and peace and brotherhood will reign at long, long last. Imagine the trillions from the “Peace Dividend” and military spending cuts. It sends a tingle——
Oops, they are coming with my afternoon meds.
(if you buy this, take YOUR meds, ASAP)
Another reason not to fear the demise of the printed newspaper
Sadly though, progressives also control most of “new media”
Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, Facebook, etc...
What izzit with these people who come from south of the border? The ones in my neighborhood seem to love setting fires in barrels and sit around eating and drinking in the front yard, even during the summer. Is it some kind of cultural thing?.........
Since when do people produce carbon?
This guy doesn’t keep up with the talking points very well. “Glowbull Warming” is sooo 2000. Even Climate Change is being dropped now for Climate Disruption. This guy must be a Climate Dinosaur.
Yeah, it happened about 30 years ago or so when they put full-bore Marxists like Robert Scheer and his wife into positions of real influence on the news side.
It would certainly cut down on global whining.
My head just ‘sploded!
The mental midget leftists have turned American into a sad joke. We are so screwed.
We are losing elections to nutjobs like this!
(giggle, giggle...) Who cares that I lost my (giggle) pills? (ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...) "Coming mother"
(better life through chemistry!!! or without it!! whichever you like) giggle, giggle, giggle
