After 30 Years, Alarmists Are Still Predicting A Global Warming Apocalypse
For at least three decades scientists and environmental activists have been warning that the world is on the verge of a global warming apocalypse? that will flood coastal cities, tear up roads and bridges with mega-storms and bring widespread famine and misery to much of the world.
The only solution, they say, is to rid the world of fossil fuels coal, natural gas and oil that serve as the pillars of modern society. Only quick, decisive global action can avert the worst effects of manmade climate change, warn international bodies like the United Nations, who say we only have decades left or even less!
Of course, human civilization has not collapsed, despite decades of predictions that we only have years left to avert disaster. Ten years ago, the U.N.predicted we only had as little as eight years left to avoid a dangerous global average rise of 2C or more.?
This failed prediction, however, has not stopped the U.N. and others from issuing more apocalyptic statements.
To celebrate nearly three decades of dire predictions, The Daily Caller News Foundation put together this list of some of the most severe doomsday prophecies made by scientists, activists and politicians:
1. Apocalyptic warnings on repeat
2. The planet will be uninhabitable? by the end of the century
3. Prince Charles?s global warming deadline passed?and nothing happened
4. Ice Apocalypse? Now
5.2015 is the last effective opportunity? to stop catastrophic warming
6. France?s foreign minister said we only have 500 days? to stop climate chaos?
7. Former President Barack Obama is the last chance to stop global warming
8. Remember when we had hours? to stop global warming?
9. United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there was only 50 days left to save Earth
10. The U.N.?s top climate scientist said in 2007 we only had four years to save the world
11. Environmentalists warned in 2002 the world had a decade to go green
12. Global warming apocalypse 1980s edition
The U.N. was already claiming in the late 1980s that the world had only a decade to solve global warming or face the consequences.
The San Jose Mercury News reported June 30, 1989 that a senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000.?
That prediction didn?t come true 17 years ago, and the U.N. is sounding the same alarm today.
