Oh dear, James, oh deary deary me!

Professor James Lovelock is, as every schoolboy knows, the author who assigned the name Gaia (the Greek earth goddess) to the intricate web of mutual interdependencies that underpin the earth’s environment. His research and writings have provided the momentum for much of today’s environmental/green movement.

He is a deeply respected figure. Or at least he was. Because he’s gone and done a James Watson (see my post here) and will surely suffer the same fate. In an interview with the Irish Examiner he claims that the ever-increasing spread of desertification northwards will put immense immigration pressure on Northern European countries like Ireland. He suggests that Ireland should focus on its own national interest rather than those of would-be immigrants.

Oh dear!
But it gets worse. ‘Your problem will be to keep it a fit place for people to grow up and live in’ Indeed James, indeed. He thinks this will be impossible if vast numbers of sub-Saharan Africans and Bangladeshis descend on the place. ‘You’ve got to be real tough. Your job is to keep them out of Ireland. I'm not being racist, it’s just a matter of numbers’.

Oh my goodness.
But it gets still worse. He thinks that the Chinese are indeed colonizing Africa, but that this could be a good things as the Africans ‘are not doing awfully well on their own’.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!

James, notwithstanding your advanced years (he’s now 90) and your standing as the father of the green movement, you're about to be Watsoned. Even now I imagine the PC alarms are going off in PC Fairyland, the Ministry of Truth are scrutinising your every syllable, and it won't be long before you hear the midnight knock as the Thought Police pay you a visit.

Repent! Repent as your end is nigh.

so, so, sad, Savant. This man will no doubt be demonised in spite of his honesty and the accuracy of his comments. Kevin Myers also wrote recently about the lunacy of importing people from shitholes like Somalia. Liberals think they are rescuing these poor souls from their hellholes, without realising that it is their culture that made them hellholes in the first place.
Combine this mentality, with the same liberal doctrine that we must "respect" their cultures i.e. they don't have to adapt to our society in any way, and then you have a lot of unreformed third-worlders eager to continue the same barbarism that wrecked their own countries.

Jockney - it's only on the print version of the Examiner (last Saturday) I'm afraid.

Do you mean to say the good Professor Lovelock has a right to fear that the U.K./Ireland could turn into something similar to THIS?

Viking: Liberals think they are rescuing these poor souls from their hellholes, without realising that it is their culture that made them hellholes in the first place.No, no, no, Viking. The cultures of all non-white people are paradises. Any culture-wrecking proclivities they exhibit are the result of the exploitation they suffered at the hands of whites. Once they succeed in driving all the Irish out of Ireland, Ireland will be a paradise once more. Unless it's not, but blaming whitey for one's fuck-ups has no statute of limitations.

@ Rohan

I stand corrected!
