A Sea Change On Climate Change?

This might get conservatives to start believing in global warming:

Global warming could drive millions more Mexicans into the United States in search of work by 2080 due to diminishing crop yields in Mexico, a study released Monday showed.

“Depending on the warming scenarios used and adaptation levels assumed … climate change is estimated to induce 1.4 to 6.7 million adult Mexicans (or two percent to 10 percent of the current population aged 15-65 years) to emigrate as a result of declines in agricultural productivity alone,” the study said.

Global warming leads to illegal immigration? ¡Caramba! Somebody call Lou Dobbs, and Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, and Tom Tancredo, and all the other race-bating protozoans who dwell in the depths of the Republican party’s lizard brain. Spread the word high and low, high carbon emissions mean more illegal Mexicans!

If this doesn’t persuade them to go green …

… then surely this will?
