Tricking Conservatives

This may be the funniest attempt I have ever seen to try and manipulate conservatives into believing in global warming:
Climate change linked to possible mass Mexican migration to U.S.
Of course it is complete BS. Even if we could predict the effect of global warming with sufficient accuracy to make such a prediction, demographics would kill it. This is almost certainly the end for mass Mexican immigration to America. While I am sure people will always want to come here, there has been a huge demographic shift in Mexico:
The population's annual growth rate has been reduced from a 3.5% peak, in 1965 to 0.99% in 2005. While Mexico is now transitioning to the third phase of demographic transition, close to 50% of the population in 2009 was 25 and younger. Fertility rates have also decreased from 5.7 children per woman in 1976 to 2.2 in 2006.
With a population that is no longer growing it is unlikely Mexicans will be trying as hard to get out of the country as they do now. Even if they do, there will simply be less Mexicans which leads to less immigration.
