    4 Catastrophic Climate Predictions That Never Came True

    (I was a middle school student when our teachers, especially our science teachers, terrified us with visions of a year 2000 marked by millions dead from pollution, a new ice age, and mass starvation. They encouraged us to watch dystopian movies like Soylent Green. Does anyone else remember being subjected to this propaganda and taken for mandatory participation in Earth Day marches? Looking back, I realize what lefty globalist grammar and middle school teacher were. )

    4 Catastrophic Climate Predictions That Never Came True

    Current climate predictions can be terrifying if you don't know about the previous dire climate claims that amounted to nothing.

    Yes, I remember earth day 1970, by 1975 they had us participating in nature studies and in school they predicted chlorofluorocarbon would eat up all the ozone allowing ionizing radiation to fry us at the same time they said there would be another ice age! Typical paradoxical oxymoron education, and I wonder why I'm so fucked up?

    I got news for them, the sky is still blue, the snow still melts, and everything's still alive and carrying on as usual! They also preached overpopulation and how important birth control (abortion) was.

    I think they should be mashed up, pressed into patties, fried, and turned to soylent green!

    I trust nothing that environmentalist lot has to say. Environmentalism isn't a science, it's a religion. It's cost us money, jobs, and even human lives.

    Besides, proving a theory requires a control group where the variable in question (mankind and its inventions) is not present. In this case, that would mean a duplicate earth in a duplicate orbit with a duplicate atmosphere, minus mankind. On that basis alone, mankind's ability to affect the environment can never be proven.

    Like everything else liberal/socialist/communist, it's not about the environment, it's about control. Every big lib issue is about control. Stalin, Lenin, Kim Jong Un, Hitler, take your pick. Pure filth, right along with every two-ounce-brained individual who subscribes to this nonsense.

    You've heard of "Climate Change," and you've probably heard of its predecessor "Global Warming" - but unless you lived through the 1970s, you may not remember the MSM/Liberal/Academic scam that mothered them all: Global Cooling.The entire world-wide con of the working class via "Climate Change" started (if you don't count Mayan sacrifices) in 1972, with a now-infamous (and hilarious) letter from two "experts" to then-president Richard Nixon - and a quick read will forever convince you, beyond all doubt, that the "Climate Change Crisis" we now face is complete, utter, fabricated, Democrat BS.___Like this video?

    Not really a good example. Let's say someone predicts that the town is going to flood, so the town builds a levee, and when the river rises the town doesn't flood after all. Was the original prediction bullshit? Every industrialized nation on earth went to lengths to ban CFCs. I guess we'll never really know what would have happened if they hadn't. But the fact that the ozone layer is mostly still there isn't proof they were wrong.

    And that is the crux of the matter. Because if causality can't be proven, then all these controls and bans that have imposed so much cost and inconvenience and heartache and death are really nothing more than "Let's try this and see if something good happens." Or, more to the point, with a Mencken slant, "Let's see if we can market this fakery in a way that there'll be enough panic so I can make a lucrative career out of it."

    Nobody in that study took into consideration all the ozone we create through use of electricity, in particular arks sparks motors and such, now they'll be telling everyone there's too much ozone. Theories cannot be trusted when the scientists are narrow minded and gather the facts to suit their theory while leaving out key components.

    Only 4? Every global warming and the newer climate change have been wrong.

    To bootstrap off Sam's .0 post:

    "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 [has] come true. What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science."

    Re: 4 Catastrophic Climate Predictions That Never Came True

    A lot of them are repeats of the 70s ice age myth that's debunked in my previous video post. Most of them are second hand from newspapers not directly from actual science journals or actual scientists (Al Gore, Prince Charles, Gordan Brown are definitely not scientists so their opinion means nothing).

    Two observations.....

    (1) All I have seen for decades now is global warming deniers using the exact same urban myths and debunked arguments over and over again. They use the same methods of other science deniers like young earth creationists. For a full list, https://skepticalscience.com/argument.php

    (2) Global warming deniers can't even agree with each other you have 3 main viewpoints.

    * Those who don't accept the earth is warming

    * Those who do accept the earth is warming but deny humans are the cause (it's natural)

    * Those who do accept humans are causing the warming but argue that (it's beneficial) or (too late to do anything about it) or (why should I give up my car when China has just built a massive new coal burning power station)

    This is hardly a trivial disagreement, these are 3 mutually exclusive points of view yet I almost never hear them criticize each other. I even hear people make an argument supporting one of these viewpoints only for 5 minutes later to use an argument that supports one of the others.

    I repeat: Show me verifiable causality linked to humans.
