The Earth, According to Scientists, is a Dead Planet

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives. It’s not their money, of course they’ll waste it.

    The Global Warmists (or Coolists) are shrill, academics love them, but they’re almost always wrong. Hmm!

WOW! Top 10 Climate Change Predictions Gone Spectacularly Wrong
Tricia Cunningham

One thing is for sure, if you are in the business of weather prediction, you can get it wrong every time and still get paid.

    Predictions from climate change alarmists go awry so often that at this rate the only way they’ll be able to save themselves from embarrassment is if they make their doomsday predictions so far out in the future that they’ll be dead before we can check them on it.

    1. Biologist Paul Ehrlich predicted in the 1970s that: “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” and that “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

<insert>

  Paul, never right, but is still revered in the halls of academia.

    2. In January 1970, Life reported, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”

    3. In January 2006 Al Gore predicted that we had ten years left before the planet turned into a “total frying pan.” We made it.

   Al is the poster boy for Global Warming. Not sure he wants to be right now.

    4. In 2008, a segment aired on ABC News predicted that NYC would be under water by June 2015.

<insert>

    That happened, as we all know.

    5. In 1970, ecologist Kenneth E.F. Watt predicted that “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but 11 degrees colder by the year 2000, This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age.

    6. In 2008, Al Gore predicted that there is a 75% chance that the entire north polar ice cap would be completely melted within 5-7 years. He at least hedged that prediction by giving himself “75%” certainty.

    7. On May 13th 2014 France’s foreign minister said that we only have 500 days to stop “climate chaos.” The recent Paris climate summit met 565 days after his remark.

    8. In 2009, National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center head James Wassen warned that Obama only had four years left to save the earth.

    9. On the first Earth Day its sponsor warned that “in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”

    10. And another Earth Day prediction from Kenneth Watt: “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”

    A study in the journal Nature Climate Change reviewed 117 climate predictions and found that 97.4% never materialized.

    <insert>

    Almost 3% were correct, astounding.

   <end>

    Neither discredited nor discouraged. Academic naysayers throughout the ages.

  1. Invisible Mikey Says:

    The author entitles the article “According to scientists…” yet can’t manage to name the work of a single climate scientist or meteorologist, instead referencing a biologist who made inaccurate predictions 45 years ago (by the way, Paul’s very much alive), some politicians, and a TV News report which may or may not even exist (no broadcast date or attribution).

    If this was a paper for a university class, it would have received a failing grade.

  2. Grant Coulson Says:

    I stand corrected, I thought he had expired from the shame of all his failed predictions.

  3. Grant Coulson Says:

    Failing a class in university is a pretty good indication you’re on the right track given the abysmal record of academics in just about everything.
