I work a bit in the climate field. And it really is amazing how immigration and climate is something that you just simply can’t talk about, you just get to shut up very quickly. I even did a little work on the iSteve idea of exactly how much carbon we are adding by importing half of Guatemala. And my findings basically agree with what Steve found, except it’s a lot bigger importing from Central America rather than Mexico cuz Mexico has much higher CO2 per person. But it’s completely unpublishable. Nobody at an environmental economics Journal would look at it at all. It does drive me crazy how doctrinaire conservatives are about climate change. There is something happening for sure, it does seem to be getting hotter, but it drives me crazier that the left can’t recognize that you simply can’t have immigration at the level we are and do anything about climate change. It’s impossible.
