‘Climate change will turbo-charge that threat’: Time pulls out all the stops to demonize border wall

The left is so opposed to securing the southern border with Mexico and putting an end to an invasion of humanity never before seen in America that they will employ any reason whatsoever to block efforts to address the chaos — including playing the climate change card.

Leave it to Time, the once relevant magazine, to do just that to counter efforts in Arizona to secure the border — it seems clear by this point that the left, which includes the Biden administration, is seeking to allow as many illegal immigrants as humanely possible into the country while Joe Biden is in the White House, under the belief that this will enhance their power.

“Arizona governor Doug Ducey’s term draws to a close, he’s rushing to cement his legacy: a bunch of battered, rusty shipping containers,” a Times article said. “Since Oct. 24, crews have double-stacked 900 of the metal boxes at the Arizona-Mexico border to create a 17 ft.-high barrier, with sheet metal welded between them. The aim is to cover a 10 mile stretch, with up to 3,000 containers, before Ducey’s Jan. 5 departure from office.”

Naturally, the left-leaning magazine doesn’t mention that Ducey is being forced to do what the Biden administration refuses to do, which is to secure the border in a desperate attempt to slow the historic flood of illegal immigrants pouring into the country — the numbers topping 5 million in less than 2 years.

Time highlighted radical environmental activists using their bodies to halt construction in Arizona, before offering justification for such actions.

“This corner of southwestern Arizona is one of the most wildlife-rich parts of the U.S., home to mountain lions, javelinas, black bears, and visiting jaguars and ocelots,” the piece stated. “All these animals roam back and forth across the U.S.-Mexico border to find food, water, and mates. Researchers report that wildlife cameras set up near the container wall have already captured coyotes and foxes unsuccessfully trying to cross it. Conservation advocates say the wall is a threat to those species’ survival and reproduction.”

“Climate change will turbo-charge that threat. As global warming alters conditions in animals’ existing habitats, scientists say the biggest mass migration of animals since the Ice Age is getting underway,” the article continued. “It will often be blocked by human borders, thanks to a worldwide frenzy of wall-building over the last few decades. A 2021 study by U.K.-based ecologists found that in a high emissions scenario, 16% of non-flying mammals would see more than half of their climatic niche—locations with conditions in which they can survive—move beyond border barriers they can’t cross by 2070.

“The U.S.-Mexico wall is especially problematic: because of its position, cutting east-west across a massive wildlife region, the researchers wrote, it ‘may be one of the worst international borders on the planet along which to build such a wall.'”

Considering that Democratic governor-elect Katie Hobbs is entertaining the possibility of removing the containers being used to secure the border when she takes office next month, there seems to be little need for the article. Leaving no stone unturned, there is a also federal lawsuit challenging the process.

However, the real objective comes into play as the article draws to a close.

“Whatever she does, hundreds more miles of the U.S. border wall are likely to remain in place, with President Joe Biden having dismissed calls to tear it down,” the conclusion states. “That will leave wildlife stuck between a wall and a climate-changed place.”
