Title: Beto O'Rourke starts presidential campaign by claiming the world faces 'catastrophe' and warns 'hundreds of millions' of climate refugees will overwhelm borders and humanity could go EXTINCT unless we fix the planet in 12 years

O'Rourke, 46, released a video alongside wife Amy announcing his candidacy

In it, he talks about 'interconnected crises in our democracy, economy and climate' and promises to 'unleash the genius of the U.S.' to fix them

First visit ever to Iowa starts with apocalyptic threats about global warming: Beto warns large parts of the world will soon be uninhabitable

Downplays illegal immigration, says mass migration of climate 'refugees' will send 'tens or hundreds of millions' of people to the U.S. border

O'Rourke praises 'Green New Deal' as the best proposal to address 'singular crisis we face, a crisis that could at its worst lead to extinction'

Website has merchandise and fundraising buttons but no issues or positions

Months of speculation followed O'Rourke's U.S. Senate race against Ted Cruz where he narrowly lost to the Republican in a deeply red state

'If immigration is a problem, it's the best possible problem for this country to have,' O'Rourke said in his video

President Trump vented in the opposite direction on Twitter, calling Democrats 'Border Deniers' who ignore 'Death, Crime, Drugs and Human Trafficking'

Conservative 'Club For Growth' is running ads describing O'Rourke as a rich culture-appropriator who isn't actually Hispanic: 'Barack Obama, but white' President Trump mocked O'Rourke's 'hand movements'

Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke warned Thursday in his first presidential campaign stop that parts of the planet will soon become uninhabitable, driving a massive wave of climate 'refugees' across the U.S. border, if America's government doesn't adopt emergency measures within the next 12 years.

O'Rourke, 46, had formally announced an hour earlier that he will seek the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, ending months of speculation over whether he would try to translate his newfound political celebrity into a White House bid.

In the southwestern Iowa town of Keokuk, a sweater-clad Beto told a smallish crowd that by the time his 12-year-old son is his age 'we may not be able to live in cities that we call home today, like El Paso, Texas. We may not be able to grow our own food and fiber, feed and clothe ourselves in this country.'

And in a silent nod to his differences with President Donald Trump on immigration issues, he downplayed the present national security threat of ever- larger seas of humanity crossing into the U.S. from Mexico and nations further to the south. It will get worse unless the planet heals, he warned.

'If you think 300,000 immigrants and asylum-seekers apprehended on the southern border is a problem – and I don't necessarily think that it is,' he said, 'the kind of migration and refugee flows that we will see when entire bands of this world are no longer habitable will be a crisis of a different magnitude altogether.'

'We face catastrophe and crisis on this planet,' he insisted in a dour note, 'even if we were to stop emitting carbon today right now at this moment.'

Democrats on their party's far left wing have proposed a 'Green New Deal' that would spend tens of trillions of dollars to reshape the U.S. economy along environmental lines, eliminating air travel and gasoline-powered cars and replacing countless buildings with greener versions. O'Rourke didn't formally endorse the proposal on Thursday but said it's the best proposal he's heard.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6808207/Beto-ORourke-announces- running-president-2020.html#v-2043549092872867733

'Some will criticize the Green New Deal for being too bold or being unmanageable. I tell you what: I haven't seen anything better that addresses this singular crisis we face, a crisis that could at its worst lead to extinction,' he said.

'Literally, not to be melodramatic, but the future of the world depends on us, right now, here where we are.'

He painted an apocalyptic picture of America's future, claiming global warming will unleash 'massive migration of tens or hundreds of millions of people from countries that are literally uninhabitable or under water, that are above the sea right now.'

'Let us all be well aware that life is going to be a lot tougher for the generations that follow us, no matter what we do. It is only a matter of degrees,' he said.

'And along this current trajectory there will be people who can no longer live in the cities that they call home today. There is food grown in the country that will no longer prosper in these soils. There is going to be massive migration of tens or hundreds of millions of people from countries that are literally uninhabitable or under water, that are above the sea right now. This is our final chance. The scientists are absolutely unanimous on this, that we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.'

At the White House, President Donald Trump's reaction was based on what he saw, not what he heard.

'I think he's got a lot of hand movement. I've never seen so much hand movement,' he told reporters during an Oval Office photo-op.

'I said, "Is he crazy? Or is that just the way he acts?'

On the White House's favored TV network, the Fox News Channel, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley needled O'Rourke, reacting to the host's question about 'Beto' by saying: 'You pronounced it wrong. It’s "Robert Francis".'

Those are O'Rourke's given names, reflecting his Anglo ancestry.

Gidley's given first name is John.

O'Rourke's online campaign began Thursday with announcements emailed in English and Spanish. An interview with CBS News will air Friday morning. And he will head to Iowa for three days of hand-to-hand campaigning. But in a head- scratching political move, the liberal media darling won't have an official launch speech until March 30.

And while his campaign website was heavy on merchandise and fundraising buttons as he announced his candidacy, there was no sign at all of policies, political positions or his video — only a photo of a sweat-dripping Beto with microphone in hand.

The much-anticipated O'Rourke rollout was marked by a clumsy lack of coordination that left his supporters looking for a launch video for an hour before his campaign organization posted it on Twitter. O'Rourke's hometown newspaper, the El Paso Times, had it ahead of time, but no other news organization.

And he confirmed his plans in a text message to an El Paso television station Wednesday night, leaving reporters across the country wondering whether they had missed the big reveal. Thursday's video features an up-and-down bobbing O'Rourke speaking as his wife Amy holds his arm and smiles. Tapping into the marquee issue that defines border zones like his native El Paso, Texas, he declares that 'if immigration is a problem, it's the best possible problem for this country to have.'

'We should ensure that there are lawful paths to work, to be with family and to flee persecution.'

O'Rourke's quick embrace of the Democratic immigration policies that defined his main difference with Cruz came as Trump vented in the opposite direction on Twitter.

'The Democrats are “Border Deniers”,' Trump tweeted Thursday morning. 'They refuse to see or acknowledge the Death, Crime, Drugs and Human Traffictougking at our Southern Border!'

Others on the right began earnestly targeting O'Rourke this week.

The conservative Club For Growth purchased TV time in Iowa for an ad blasting the Texas Democrat as an entitled son-in-law of a rich real estate developer who is guilty of cultural appropriation because he downplays his Irish and Welsh ancestry in favor of 'pretending' to be Hispanic.

'He's Barack Obama, but white,' the ad claims, parroting a description once offered in a Politico story.

O'Rourke's wife, Amy, is the daughter of Bill Sanders, a real-estate mogul whose net worth Forbes magazine estimates at about $500 million.

There is no such phenomena within the collective human psyche called "common sense." This is particularly true within "politics."

You are just emoting about your own idealistic, hopeful projections of fantasy.

Nah, he's just another 'Rat empty-suit douchebag. Don't overthink Lucky Charms O'Rodriguez and his moronic gasbagging bullshit - we had enough of that from Odumbass.

I remember Trump was disappointed he took Princess Gray Beaver out before he had time to have fun demolishing that hag. I just hope Lucky Charms stays in long enough to give Trump another punching bag for a while.

It is strikingly odd that you mention “projections of fantasy.”

Fantasy is the genre in literature that incorporates the magical elements that are supernatural elements to part of the setting.

For you – as someone living deep in the setting of the Belizean jungle – to speak about the projection of fantasy attracts attention by reason of being extremely unusual and prominently extreme and has internal consistency that is completely explicable and not easily understood to be reality.

You sound like the protagonist who grows up in contemporary England and is introduced to the world of magic such as in the Harry Potter series.

You are indeed that character …

… and when “common sense” is used as a characterization to describe the distinctive nature and features of the libertarians’ ability to use good judgment in making decisions and to live in a reasonable way.

Let me get this straight. Climate change is going to cause a global catastrophe … but hundreds of millions of people will rush to our border because … the U.S. won't be equally affected?

Why is that, Beto?

Did you listen to any of his speeches when he was running against Cruz?

They must have counted the votes for him in Austin at least 5 times for him to be that close at the end. I can't imagine that anybody outside of Austin voted for him.

Too little, too late...

And "climate change" (regardless of whether or not you think it is man-made) is only part of it...

We're doomed by overpopulation... and global pollution...

Back when I was a kid, there was almost 4 billion people in the world...

Now there's almost TWICE as many...

And they all damage the environment, cutting down the rainforests, polluting the oceans, destroying habitat for the food chain with excessive fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, chemicals & other crap, not to mention plastics and other garbage...

The "civilized" world is becoming a festering cesspit, ripe for pandemic disease & starvation...

And dumbass Beto's "Green New Deal" ain't gonna stop it...

And neither is the "Free Market"...

Frankly, it makes me happy that I'm old, crippled & suffer diabetes & heart disease...
with a little luck, I'll croak before the shit hits the fan...

In the simple map above lies a stark spatial imbalance: half the people in the world cram into just 1 percent of the Earth’s surface (in yellow), and the other half sprawl across the remaining 99 percent (in black).

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

And how much of that is uninhabitable... or unsuitable for agrarian purposes due to extreme terrain, climate or lack of water?

Or destroying the ocean fisheries through overfishing & pollution?

Got news for you: Pollution isn't confined to just the 1% of the places that you want to call "overcrowded"... It overflows & spills out everywhere, contaminating the whole goddam planet & turning it into a giant cesspit.

There must be a tree near by you, for huggin.

Trees
By Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Nothing wrong with huggin' a tree... I don't know what you have against it... Trees are good for the soul...
