HOWEVER MUCH FUN IT IS TO LOOK BACK AT THE HYSTERICAL AND DIRE PREDICTIONS (AND QUITE LAUGHABLE) REGARDING “CLIMATE CHANGE” AND “GLOBAL WARMING” BY “RENOWNED SCIENTISTS”, IT IS ALSO RATHER QUITE DISTURBING.
ARE THEY REALLY THAT DISINGENUOUS AND/OR GULLIBLE? OR ARE THEY SO DREADFULLY INCOMPETENT AND/OR IGNORANT ?
When the current pope and politicians jump on a scientific “dogma”, you have neither religion nor science. “Manmade Climate Change” falls in line with both Pope Francis’s affection for Communism and the Democratic Party’s desire for power through Socialism. (‘Scientists’ just like the grant money!). DLH
New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Remember when that happened on June 12, 2015? No? This was the wildly-inaccurate world of 2015 predicted by ABC News 11 years ago this week. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.
The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, “It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.” (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction for 2015 “Gas reached over $9 a gallon.” (In reality, gas cost an average of $2.75 four years ago.)
