    Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

    Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.

    None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.

    What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.

    More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.

    While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.

    1967: ‘Dire famine by 1975.’
    ...
    1969: ‘Everyone will disappear in a cloud of blue steam by 1989.’
    ...
    1970: Ice age by 2000
    ...
    1980: ‘Acid Rain Kills Life in Lakes’
    ...
    1978: ‘No End in Sight’ to 30-Year Cooling Trend
    ...
    1988: James Hansen forecasts increase regional drought in 1990s
    ...
    1988: Maldives completely under water in 30 years
    ...
    1989: New York City’s West Side Highway underwater by 2019
    Anyone who wonders why so many people take Global Worming less than seriously should just look over all these documented Chicken-Little-isms.

    addendum:

    Worldwide famine in the 70's and 80's predicted by Paul Erlich due to overpopulation.

    Scientific studies from the 1880's that NYC and other large cities around the world would become uninhabitable by the turn of the century due to the exponential increase in Horse manure.

    Should we be good stewards of the land, air, and seas? Yes. But, when these climate change Kabuki theater alarmists can’t decide whether we’ll freeze, burn up, or drown, it sounds like a tool of submission and slavery. Pay me billions of dollars and the Earth will forgive you for your climate changing sins, which can never be accurately quantified.

    In the 90s, scientists predicted that global warming would first lead to record drops in the levels of the Great Lakes, and then as the glaciers in the Artic melted, there would be record high levels. They were right.

    Ummmmm ...

    * Glaciers are on land and the Arctic is an ocean;

    * If the polar ice cap melted there would be no change in sea level, because all that ice displaced sea water and melting it would not affect the sea level;

    * Ignoring the above, how would sea water affect the level of the Great Lakes? Niagara Falls may not be the only barrier between the ocean and most of the Great Lakes, but it is a barrier.

    If the levels of the Great Lakes have changed over the past 20-30 years, I'd look at the precipitation levels - probably cyclical - in the watersheds of the lakes. Rather like the recent drought and then flooding in California. If one has lived here long enough - as I have - one knows that it was part of natural rain-drought cycles.

    Yeah, they're becoming uninhabitable due to exponential increase in human manure and are also becoming disease zones.

    Old white men like me are causing global-warming. And we're sorry.
