The media is quick to expose and snipe at religious predictions that don’t come to pass, like the specific date for the return of Christ. Cult groups have made dire pronouncements that missed by a mile, as well. Jehovah’s Witness leaders predicted Armageddon would occur in 1914, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975, 1994, 1997, whew, enough already.
Apocalyptic declarations are great fodder for the lefty media to treat with contempt. There are plenty of them.
However, rarely do the media inform the public about the dud predictions of some of world’s ‘learned ones’ and politicians called climate alarmists. These are important tales to tell but climate false prophets are protected in the national media.
John Nolte with Breitbart News has gathered 41 climate doomsday proclamations made over 50 years, none of which have been fulfilled. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims that we have just 12-years to save the world and that can only be done by using a socialist government to manage our lives. Her proclamation will be #42 on Nolte’s list of bogus claims.
How many times will lefties cry wolf before folks openly mock and turn a deaf ear to the crazies? Forecasts from years 1967 – 1970 included a horrible famine to occur by 1975 with hundreds of millions perishing. All natural resources would be consumed, the oil supply would be gone in 10 years, and when that didn’t happen then twenty years, then 1990, 2000, 2010, oops 2020 no mo’ oil. Over-population would consume and destroy planet earth. Water rationing would begin by 1975 and food rationing by 1980. All false.
Urbanites would need gas masks by 1985 and a nitrogen build-up would ruin all agricultural land. Pollution would kill all fish and then there are the killer bees heading toward America. If this isn’t enough to keep you awake at night a New Ice Age would begin by 2000, oops by 2020, then adjusted to 2030 and then reset for 2070. It’s coming, really. Just believe.
The 1970’s top scientists and professors reassured about the coming Ice Age, famines are imminent, acid rain will kill all life in lakes, and ozone depletion may kill us all. A repeated theme was “we are running out of oil.” These people had a shortage-of-oil fixation.
The 1980s climate-warming ‘gurus’ predicted regional droughts soon, and record high temperatures for Washington DC. The Maldives would be submerged by 2018 and rising sea levels would destroy nations if not addressed by 2000. New York City’s West Side Highway was to be underwater by 2019. Oh yes, we’re running out of oil. Not one item true here.
Predictions picked up from 2000-2010. “Children will no longer know what snow is.” There will be famine in 10-years if we don’t stop eating meat, fish and dairy. The Arctic will be ice-free by 2013, no 2014, one more time 2018, and then Britain will be Siberia by 2024. What? Yes…and oil is nearly gone. If climate false prophets were being shot we could reduce this nonsense.
In 2009, UK’s Prince Charles (not Prince Andrew of Jeffrey Epstein fame) said we had 96- months to save the world. And British Prime Minister then said we had just 50-days to save the planet. Don’t they talk? In 2014, we had just 500 days before climate chaos. All lies.
Manhattan will be underwater by 2015. And, while running out of oil the nation will be smitten with an ongoing line-up of super hurricanes. So those were the false story-lines in 2006.
How long does this insanity continue while wasting billions of dollars on indoctrination and harassing regulations to introduce socialism? Have Americans with a clue gone into hiding? Do truth-tellers fear being shamed and mocked by lunatics? Is our way of life not worth a fight?
