Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke warned that parts of the Western hemisphere would be uninhabitable as a result of climate change.
“Wait until some parts of the Western Hemisphere can no longer support human life, because that’s exactly where we are headed unless we decide to change course now,” he said. “Ten years left to us … we do not have any room for error.”
O’Rourke commented on his perception of the threat posed by climate change during his appearance at the CNN town hall on the issue.
He said he drew his knowledge about the threat posed by climate change from the book Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells, which warned of serious conflicts over resources in 2100.
O’Rourke warned of wars taking place as a result of climate change if the country did not address the problem in ten years.
“Scientists say at that point, we are screwed, we are not able to live in the places that we call home today,” he said.
O’Rourke also told a story about his eight-year-old son Henry, who was concerned about whether or not he would be able to live in El Paso, Texas in the future.
“He knew, because I had told him about the warming that we face, that our community will be uninhabitable, not sustain human life, along this current trajectory unless something dramatically changes,” he said.
Beto is an idiot. There are already places in the western hemisphere that are uninhabitable…Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, Portland, Chicago, St. Louis, New York City, Baltimore, Miami - all thanks to hordes of third worlders invading our country and stealing from the American people.
That’s a safe prediction for this idiot. He won’t be anywhere near above ground by then.
I think he is specifically referring to all of the Democratic controlled sanctuary cities. Most of them are uninhabitable now.
These climate hucksters are always pushing the date around as to when the Earth is going to get completely BTFO but they all wind up buying ocean front property with their ill gotten gains.
Makes no difference to me what he says; I won’t be around by then. come to think about it, he most likely since he’ll have most likely died of old age long before then. If what the scientists say is true, then I’m sure in another 50 years or so, they’ll take steps to resolve the issue.
If the Democrats get their way, to borrow a line from Demolition Man, every town will be Taco Bell- ah … “Cleveland”.
Beto O’Rourke is potentially right, because El Paso and similar Environ’s are the place most likely to increase the temperature where Drought becomes a years long possibility. Honestly, NY is safe for the near future, less so Long Island, but parts of NYC will certainly be pretty safe. It’s less so a story of “Flooding” then a story about how Food will be brought into Texas from the Northeast and the great safe lands of Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan and similar states.
Okay … drought and Texas … um, really? Like every other year for the last century. We will survive longer with droughts than with left wing nitwittery to protect us from stuff that’s been happening a long, long time.
(Bet you didn’t know that even with frequent droughts the tree line separating the forests of East Texas and the more or less sparsely tree’d center has marched from east of Longview to west of Fort Worth since my grandmother was a little girl … even with the droughts. Yes, what’s grown to West of Fort Worth is mostly oaks, cedars etc rather than pine but it’s still trees.)
… and then you talk of food … hint: we can grow our own food and have during those droughts (that we have most years) for the last century.
He’s correct. If we elect a socialist, parts of this nation (large parts) will be uninhabitable soon. Just look at Chicago, Detroit, San Fran and pretty much any other shit hole that Democrats have had full control of for decades.
Which scientists? A lot of scientists say man made global warming is BS.
Thanks to the wonders of drug cartels,look at those shithole countries in Central and South America.
I have no clue; but then again, as I mentioned in my original post, it makes no difference to me since I’ll be long gone from this world. Either way, the best policy is to believe half of what you see and nothing of what you hear from either side.
I don’t disagree, I just think since there is no consensus, the smart move is to not give more power to the feds to correct something they can’t correct, nor do we know is actually a problem.
