    Back in 2005 the UN environment program predicted that by 2010 there would be 50 million climate refugees. Where are they?

    Not only did the prediction turn out to be pure rubbish, they have now been caught in an inept attempt to sweep the prediction under the rug. More evidence that climate alarmism is not science. In actual science, being wrong, and having proof that you are wrong is often as important as being right as proof of error eliminates the possibility from the equation.

    The UN “disappears” 50 million climate refugees, then botches the disappearing attempt | Watts Up With That?

    A Different Kind of Tsunami: Climate Refugees | KQED's Climate Watch

    It's not so much the planet we need to worry about, it's each other. And ourselves.

    That's the message of the documentary Climate Refugees, which aims to portray "the human face of climate change." The film takes viewers to flooded disaster zones in Bangladesh and China, to tiny island nations like Tuvalu under threat from sea level rise, and to the desert wastelands of Sudan, where, according to the UN, the devastating war in Darfur has been driven partly by climate change.

    Extreme weather events are expected to become more common as the climate continues to change, raising the odds for disastrous floods like the ones Pakistan last year, which displaced more than 20 million people, and major droughts which will likely increase desertification in vulnerable areas of Africa and Asia, threatening food and water supplies for millions of people.

    And all of those people will need someplace to go.

    More extreme weather is just one more layer of the hoax. There is no more extreme weather today than there ever was.

    A link to that claim would be helpful.

    The link you gave us does not lead to the UN site, but rather a site that claims the UN predicted this number of environmal refugees.

    Not that I doubt some fool might have made such a statement, of course, but I'd like to read it for myself.

    what a load of poppycock! every time the alarmists make a prediction Mother Nature shows them to be incorrect. what happened to the hurricanes predicted? or the flooded islands? didnt happen so now they are trying to call weather events climate change.

    chaulk up another vote for 'lying for a good cause' is better than 'investigating to find the truth'.

    Some of the greatest evils ever perpetrated were done by people who believed that the ends justified the means.

    We've always had climate refugees.

    All the old folks who move from New England to Florida when they retire.
