Because they inherently promote degeneracy. A wet and tropical region causes people to become peafowlish. On the other hand, cold weather and deserts force people to struggle.

Yeah, let's evacuate huge swathes of land and send everyone to other countries just because the conditions there don't promote intelligence that meets Tabby's standards! What can pssibly go wrong?

When the entire German nation was evacuated, or relocated from its former eastern territories at the end of the Second World War how many died as a matter of percentages?

The West German government's estimates would number the dead at some 14.3% while some latter historians assert 3.6% or numbers of a similar magnitude.

Move a billion people and similar numbers would inevitably die.

Those percentages I cited for a billion amount to 143,000,000 and 36,0000,000 respectively.

Our kind and gentle friend, might have some quibbles with my numbers. Regardless, the ideas are monstrous.

Oh, before the OP regurgitates his tired discourses about the distinction between an is and an ought, he might like to actually read David Hume. He might be surprised to find a difference between what he supposes the moral sentiments of the philosopher who made popular that kind of talk are, and what in fact the man had to say on the subject.

For anyone who might care to follow up, an extensive series of lectures by Daniel Robinson on the subject are available.

The video is posted by Philosophical Overdose. An apt name if there ever was one.

Moving tropical people to the North won't make them "evolve" into Caucasian people.

If you deny that "tropical" people will evolve if moved, and "tropical" people are degenerate - then you want to import "degeneracy". Either you want to depopulate through deportation or genocide, but there is no third option logically.

HOW will they evolve? "Tropical" people, assuming Black African people are "tropical", can live normally in temperate areas. Say Black communities are less productive on average than White communities - true. But that doesn't mean they cannot survive in temperate climates. Without selective pressure they will not evolve. Only random mutation can account for evolution in the absence of selective pressure.

They are already evacuating themselves. Does it help? No, both sites suffer. This is not a solution.

^I'm not saying that the lands need to be abandoned. Let robots handle them. Human 1.0s on the other hand need some moderately harsh environment to promote development.
