Failed Earth Day Predictions. This product failed too.

Failed Earth Day Predictions

Via iHateTheMedia, here are a few of the predictions made on the first Earth Day. Don’t these sound like the predictions today that fail, like the 50 million climate refugees by 2010 followed by the moving of the goalposts to 2020? “We have about five more years at the outside to do something.” • Kenneth Watt, ecologist. The big list of failed climate predictions. Reader “Sasha” responding to Jeff Alberts in comments provided a large list that I thought was worth sharing.

The big list of failed climate predictions

Submitted on 2014/04/02 at 8:37 am The question wasn’t “what do people think is caused by global warming”, but “what was predicted by scientists and activists 25 years ago that would be a result of global warming.” Big difference.

Arctic Ice Melting

Polar Bears. Sea Level. Droughts. National Geographic’s Warming Warning – 10 Years Later. Geoff Sherrington writes: National Geographic Magazine had a Global Warming issue in September 2004.

National Geographic’s Warming Warning – 10 Years Later

New instruments have given new data. By planning now, NatGeo can make a revised issue 10 years later, in September 2014. The 2014 edition should aim to correct what is now known to be wrong or questionable in the 2004 edition. We can help. Checking up on past forecasts about climate change, a guide to the future. Summary: While we quake in fear at the stream of apocalyptic forecasts fed us by the news media, let’s look back at two previous forecasts about rising sea levels and melting sea ice.

Checking up on past forecasts about climate change, a guide to the future

Perhaps we’d get better forecasts from our experts if we more often held them accountable for them. Contents. Doomsday 2030: The latest Wild Climate Claim. Guest essay by Eric Worrall Researchers at University of Queensland and Griffith University have published a study, which claims global warming will exceed the green panic threshold of 2c by 2030.

Doomsday 2030: The latest Wild Climate Claim

The abstract of the study; AbstractThe United Nations Conference on Climate Change (Paris 2015) reached an international agreement to keep the rise in global average temperature ‘well below 2°C’ and to ‘aim to limit the increase to 1.5°C’. These reductions will have to be made in the face of rising global energy demand. Here a thoroughly validated dynamic econometric model (Eq 1) is used to forecast global energy demand growth (International Energy Agency and BP), which is driven by an increase of the global population (UN), energy use per person and real GDP (World Bank and Maddison).

Seven Earth Day predictions that failed spectacularly. Never Trust The Doom-Mongers: Earth Day Predictions That Were All Wrong The Daily Caller, 22 April 2016 Andrew Follett Environmentalists truly believed and predicted that the planet was doomed during the first Earth Day in 1970, unless drastic actions were taken to save it.

Seven Earth Day predictions that failed spectacularly

Humanity never quite got around to that drastic action, but environmentalists still recall the first Earth Day fondly and hold many of the predictions in high regard.

Climate Craziness of the Week: Climate Change turns women into hookers? Really? I guess this explains Mary Magdalene during the Roman Warm Period. Several House Democrats claim that trace amounts of carbon dioxide could push women to ‘transactional sex’ for survival Several House Democrats are calling on Congress to recognize that climate change is hurting women more than men, and could even drive poor women to “transactional sex” for survival. … Climate change could also add “workload and stresses” on female farmers, which the resolution says produce 60 to 80 percent of the food in developing countries. Claim: Global Warming Will Cause More Child Marriages. Guest essay by Eric Worrall The ongoing effort by climate advocates to find a way to make us care about their failed cause has reached a new low, with a claim that global warming is making young vulnerable girls more likely to be forced into marriage, in barbaric cultures which sanction some forms of child abuse.

Here’s How Climate Change Is SexistFirst, two facts:1.) Bangladesh has been ravaged by flooding and cyclones in recent years.2.) Some 30 percent of girls in Bangladesh get married before they turn 15, meaning it has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world.What could those two things possibly have in common?

They’re both the product of climate change.It might seem crazy, but it’s true: Around the world, climate change disproportionately affects people living in poverty, especially poor women and girls. The UN “disappears” 50 million climate refugees, then botches the disappearing attempt. Hoo boy, government bureaucratic idiocy at its finest. Not only is the original claim bogus, the attempts to disappear it are hilariously inept. Apparently, they’ve never heard of Google Cache at the UN. Rather than simply say “we were wrong”, they’ve now brought even more distrust onto the UN.

Back on April 11th, Gavin Atkins of Asian Correspondent asked this simple question: “In Searching For A New Enemy To Unite Us, We Came Up With The Threat Of Global Warming” “The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came upwith the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.The real enemy then, is humanity itself.“ – Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank,consultants to the United Nations.

Experts : Maldives To Drown in 12 Months. Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute. Appetite for Change, a report prepared by leading climate scientists David Karoly and Richard Eckard at the University of Melbourne, reveals the impact that shifting rainfall patterns, extreme weather, warming oceans, and climate related diseases will have on the production, quality and cost of Australia’s food in the future. From wheat, seafood and dairy products to poultry, meat, grains, and fruit and vegetables, the effects of global warming on a list of fifty-five household food items has been compiled for the very first time. “It’s definitely a wake up call when you hear that the toast and raspberry jam you have for breakfast, for example, might not be as readily available in 50 years time,” said Associate Professor Richard Eckard from the University of Melbourne.

“Or that there may be changes to the cost and taste of food items we love and take for granted like avocado and vegemite, spaghetti bolognaise and even beer, wine and chocolate.
