Global Warming Will Cause Widespread Conflict, Displace Millions and Devastate Global Economy

Alicante(30-09-1997)Coming soon! The Independent reveals the latest findings of the UN’s IPCC in advance of its next report, and it is depressing reading indeed:

Climate change will displace hundreds of millions of people by the end of this century, increasing the risk of violent conflict and wiping trillions of dollars off the global economy, a forthcoming UN report will warn.

The second of three publications by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, due to be made public at the end of this month, is the most comprehensive investigation into the impact of climate change ever undertaken. A draft of the final version seen by The Independent says the warming climate will place the world under enormous strain, forcing mass migration, especially in Asia, and increasing the risk of violent conflict.

Based on thousands of peer-reviewed studies and put together by hundreds of respected scientists, the report predicts that climate change will reduce median crop yields by 2 per cent per decade for the rest of the century – at a time of rapidly growing demand for food. This will in turn push up malnutrition in children by about a fifth, it predicts.

The report also forecasts that the warming climate will take its toll on human health, pushing up the number of intense heatwaves and fires and increasing the risk from food and water-borne diseases…

    And not long after that, the rise of the apes. We all know this is gonna happen.

    let’s make sure everyone gets vaccinated
    and use every means possible to keep people alive
    that way they won’t miss the fun

  3. Why is Disinfo posting this Disinformation? What a bunch of fear mongering B.S.

    Remember the Arctic was suppose to be ice free by now and we wouldn’t be able to stand outside in the sun by the year 2000 because of the Ozone layer..

      Yes, obviously ‘Climate Change’ is a pretence to levy a Global Carbon Tax by the megalomaniacal Enviro-Illuminati working in tandem with the burgeoning Carbon Sequestration Industrial Complex and the Carbon-Trading Financial Banksters. Creating money from nothing and charging interest on it wasn’t enough. They needed to conjure up this absurd story that burning millions of years of captured carbon-based energy for every conceivable means of performing work in civilization and dumping that carbon directly into the atmosphere while also simultaneously defoliating the ecosystem to give more space to burn more carbon-based energy would actually do something to the composition of our atmosphere. Utter hogwash, obviously.

    What a load of crap. The planet hasn’t warmed in 15 years. The Japanese are poisoning the Pacific Ocean and the press is talking about CO2.

    i was born white in the richest city in history then grew up in the richest state. i guess it was good while it lasted. i know it’ll never be as good as it was.

      ye of little faith….it will never be LIKE it was, that’s for sure…

    It loox like the places that will be least effected are where ancestral Europeans are currently residing. If you thought you had white guilt now, wait till you’re blamed for the utter inhospitability of sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. Bring the pangs…and the refugees! holy sheet!

      I’m just barely in the green zone in Japan. Might move to Hokkaido later down the road. They’ll likely be growing tropical fruit here in the mountains of Yamanashi in a decade or so.

      The Indian subcontinent will be scary, given that both India and Pakistan have fairly strong militaries and are nuclear powers.

    That isn’t the part which I have questions about. My really doubt we can do anything significant to stop this – and see no sign that we are preparing for it.

    Yes, the myth of global warming will cause these things, by making energy completely un-affordable for the masses.

    • No, the “myth” of global warming won’t make energy completely un-affordable for the masses. Solar and thorium will make energy cheaper than ever before. Oil and natural gas are obsolete.
