And They Call Me Crazy...

Chicken Little Syndrome, Illustrated.

I don't consider myself a "Doomsday Prophet," although I'm sure there are critics for what we do. We hold a simple philosophy that its better to be prepared for emergencies, both small as well as catastrophic, than be caught unawares and asking ourselves "what are we going to do now?" One notable difference between those of us in the "Prepper Movement" and those in the environmentalist groups: We Preppers are not trying to influence you, nor are we asking for anything from you--we are here online sharing ideas on family preparedness.

I don't think the same can be said for the environmentalist groups--who are 0 for 50 on their doomsday predictions. That's correct: they've been right exactly zero times. So why would we listen to them anymore? Especially when their only solution is to turn over everything to a central government so they can control and organize our lives? Why would we listen to any person. or group of people, who have gotten it wrong...Every. Single. Time.

In 2019, they decided to trot out a 16 year old girl to scold everybody from the podium at the U.N. Not sure why, unless the powers that be thought that we'd all decided not to listen to "them" anymore. It's a pretty good industry to get involved in, if you're looking to make a living yelling at people. Greta herself, now a high school graduate with no plans for college, is worth an estimated $1 million.

This is nothing new, however. Since the 1960's, modern prophets of doom have repeatedly warned of impending climate and environmental catastrophies, and this trend persists today. However, none of the predicted doomsday scenarios (with due dates) have materialized or come to pass as of now.

For educational and entertainment purposes, we have a group of headlines and articles which illustrate many of these extrodinary predictions from influential individuals in science and government--many from highly respected leaders in their respective fields.

"Dire Famine by 1975"

"Everyone will disappear in a cloud of blue steam by 1989"

"Ice age by 1970"

"America subject to water rationing by 1974 and food rationing by 1980"

"New Ice Age Coming"

"New Ice Age by 2070" This one still has a chance, I suppose.

"New Ice Age Coming Fast"

"Another Ice Age"

"Ozone Depletion a 'Great Peril To Life'"

Well, no "great peril to life" has been observed, as the 'ozone-hole' remains:

"The Cooling"

And who could forget "Acid Rain!"

Alas, 10 years later....

Source: Associated Press, September 6, 1990

"No End In Sight to 30-year cooling trend"

But.....awkward. Data shows a slight warming trend since 1979.

Better switch now to "Global Warming"....Here we go

"James Hansen Forecasts Increased Regional Drought in 1990s" New Term: Greenhouse Effect

Yeah, but the last really dry year in the Midwest was in 1988...and its gotten wetter, actually.

1988: James Hanson, again, "Washington D.C. days per year over 90F rise from 35 to 85"

While the number of really hot days in D.C. peaked in 1911, and have been declining since.

1988: Maldives completely underwater by 2018

(They're still there, by the way)

1989: Rising Seas

Here's James Hansen, again.

As we get into the turn of the century, "Children won't know what snow is"

2002: Famine in 10 years

Even managed to give vegans the credit on this one.

2004: "Britain to have Siberian climate by 2020"

Here's that Hansen guy again: "The Artic will be ice-free by 2018"

2008: I love this one....

It's still there, of course. In 2018, it actually looks to be GROWING more ice...

2009: Price Charles says only 8 years to save the planet. Its all capitalism's fault.

2009: Not to be outdone by the future king, UK Prime Minister gives only 50 days to save the planet from catastrophe

Doubling down on "Moronism"

Ah, the French...

...were wrong, too.
