Ancient ice shelf breaks free from Canadian Arctic

12/29/2006

At first glance, this CNN article which describes a giant ice shelf the size of 11,000 football fields breaking free from Canada’s Arctic may not appear related to immigration.  However, pollution, global warming, and related environmental pressures will contribute to a massive worldwide reduction in habitable land due to factors such as increased ocean levels.  This will result in overpopulation and and an exponential increase in immigration to countries like the US, Canada and Australia in the next two to five decades.  I forsee the creation of new categories for environmentally displaced refugees in US Immigration Law unless something is done to combat pollution and global warming immediately. 

Therefore, even anti-immigrationists in the US and Australia should seriously consider driving hybrids and the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol.
