Why is NPR Trying to Encourage "Climate Migration"

Here's a link to a story I heard on the way to work this morning. 

Click on "Listen to the Story" from Morning Edition at the top and click to around 6:25 to listen to the NPR's smug correspondent literally trying to convince islanders from Kiribati to leave their
homes because of climate change.  Here's the money quote:

"I told him and his wife that the earth has gotten warmer, that glaciers are melting, that sea levels have already risen, but nothing changed their minds . . ."

Listen about 30 seconds before too, though, so you get to hear the uneducated islanders poking fun at the NPR correspondent's climate change religion.  As between the guy saying he thinks God will take care of him and the guy who says "quick, run now before climate change drowns your family" I know who sounds more reasonable to me.

Your tax dollars at work.
