    What are your thoughts on what it is going to be like when people start emigrating en mass from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere due to extreme heat from climate change? These people will be true refugees, with little to no money of their own. We can not sell our properties before we leave because no one will want to purchase them! Everyone will be leaving!
    By this time there will be crop failures & food shortages worldwide. The Northern Hemisphere could be in ice age conditions.

    Sorry Keith, I may be a little dense today but I am not sure what your post is asking. Is it the migration of refugees for the southern hemisphere or the concern of an ice age in the northern hemisphere? Are you asking if we should be prepared to invade the southern hemisphere or repel the invaders from the southern hemisphere?

    Sorry mate I thought it was fairly clear.
    "What are your thoughts on what it is going to be like when people start emigrating en mass from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere due to extreme heat from climate change?"

    Okay I will try it another way. "What do you think will be the results or life changes for people in the Northern Hemisphere when there is a mass emigration of people entering Northern Hemisphere countries from the Southern Hemisphere due to climate change/global warming?

    Okay, I may have been brain dead but I got it now. I will look at them like I would any other invading army. They were not invited, I don't want or need them and they sure as heck are not welcomed by me. We would have enough problems without adding million more dependent folks to deplete our resources. AND for some of the folks out there, it is not a Christian attitude but then I don't deal in warm and fuzzy but in reality and how it would affect me or mine.

    Now turn it around the other way. We needed to evacuate the Northern hemisphere due to an ice age, does anybody see the folks in the southern hemisphere welcoming us? We would be considered invader and rightly so. Each country should and must look out for their own people, just like we would look out for our families before worrying about strangers or even our neighbors. Family and country first and warm and fuzzy way down the line.

    No, sorry mate but I do not look at it this way. I can't say I would be pleased to have Australia overrun by Americans, but in all good conscience I could understand your plight & need & could not turn you away.

    Maybe I am really confused, but if the Southern Hemisphere is burning up from the extreme heat, and the Northern Hemisphere is in Ice Age conditions that doesn't leave much for anybody. Where will any of us go? Is there some temperate zone in the middle?

    This sounds like a true TEOTWAWKI scenario.

    Obviously I have been thinking about this myself Morgan, I guess it would not hurt to check it out, but at this time it is difficult to predict where would be safe to go. One think appears to be sure, unless something happens such as another catastrophic event, climate change is going to get worse until it becomes an End Of The World event. The majority of people will NOT do anything to stop this until it starts to effect their present lifestyle, & by then it will be too late.

    First off you can't have an Ice Age and global warming. both are THEORETICALLY caused by a world wide weather pattern and are not inclusive. You have to pick one or the other.

    I will tell you, come to Texas you will love it here. Aussies, at least all the ones that I have met here, are good people and we would love to have you. Australia's population is about the same as the New York City metropolitan area. 24 million. While the population of the US is a lot higher (350 million), we are far from crowded. If we could take in all the Vietnamese boat people and all the Iranians and Mexicans I don't see a bunch of Aussies as much of a problem. You already speak English and most of you would come here and go to work instead of doing like so many of the other unwanted refugee/immigrants that mostly just want to go on welfare.

    Another plan might be going to Canada. They have more undeveloped land than even Australia. If we do warm up as some predict Canada will be the place to be! It would also be comfortable to most of you in that their Government is much like yours and not as varied as in the US. Canada is a Republic while the US is a Union of individual states each with a certain level of autonomy.

    I personally wouldn't worry too much about it. This isn't the first time this has happened and while it really is hard on people in the areas most effected it isn't TEOTWAWKI. The Sahara Desert was a lust jungle at one time. The Mediterranean basin was mostly dry at one time. There was a time when NYC was under 2 miles of ice. Climate change is one constant on this planet. Honestly I'm not sure that we have all that much control over it. Long before people ever reached a point where it was even possible to effect the weather it was constantly changing. It just seems worse now because we live in a Global community.

    When the droughts destroyed the South American and Central American Cultures the people in Asia, Africa and Europe didn't know about it and so didn't worry about it. The news media makes money selling death, doom despair and disaster. It makes it seem like the world is in crisis but the reality is that it has changed very little. The biggest issue is that in the areas most affected by droughts and famines have been bailed out and "helped" through their famines until there are now about three times as many people there as the land will support even in the good years. THAT is a huge disaster just waiting to happen! That is one thing that we have done to ourselves.
