Green Movement’s Long Train of Failed Apocalyptic Predictions Keeps on Rollin’

fldThe sky is falling! Wait, no it’s not.

As the green movement grows, few seem to notice that a major reason the movement emerged — the prediction that human activity will soon lead to cataclysmic events — has proven false.

Of all the people still making such predictions, perhaps the most famous is former vice president Al Gore. In 2006, he said that if “drastic measures” weren’t taken to reduce greenhouse gasses, the earth would reach a “point of no return” in 10 years.  “We can’t wait,” he said, promoting his movie An Inconvenient Truth, which turned out to be inconveniently wrong. “We have a planetary emergency. … The future of human civilization is at stake! … Global warming is the greatest challenge we’ve ever faced!” January 25, 2016, came and passed and the earth’s temperature has remained almost the same. Tornadoes are declining, the number of polar bears is increasing, and ice in the Antarctic continues to expand.

Despite his dire warnings about global warming causing rising sea levels, Gore bought a beachfront mansion. Meanwhile, he has been very successful as a green-tech investor.

In 2003, the Pentagon commissioned a doomsday report entitled, “An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security.” The report predicted severe climate disasters occurring around the world in 2005, 2007 and 2010 due to global warming, “Floating ice in the northern polar seas, which had already lost 40% of its mass from 1970 to 2003, is mostly gone during summer by 2010.” It went on to address the years 2010-2020, “By the end of the decade, Europe’s climate is more like Siberia’s.”
