As Climate Experts Warn of Looming Catastrophe, Past Bad Predictions Hurt Their Message


Recommended Posts

This article really shows what a sham this whole thing has been over the years

"Humanity only has a few years to act before the world may irreversibly plunge into an environmental catastrophe of global proportions, climate experts warned in a recent report. Their calls are muffled, however, by a ballast of dozens of past dramatic predictions that have failed to pan out."

1st of a lengthy list

December 1939

“All the glaciers in Eastern Greenland are rapidly melting,” the Harrisburg [Pennsylvania] Sunday Courier reported.

“It may without exaggeration be said that the glaciers—like those in Norway—face the possibility of a catastrophic collapse,” the paper quoted Prof. Hans Ahlmann, a Swedish geologist, saying from a report to the Geographical Society after his Arctic expedition.

In fact, arctic ice was seen receding since 1918, according to a 1923 New York Time article.

“Last Winter, oceans did not freeze over even on the north coast of Spitzbergen,” article said.

By comparison, this winter, sea ice did reach the shore of Spitzbergen, though in low concentrations.

Back then, however, the meltdown seemed nowhere near done.

September 1988

The small island nation of Maldives was threatened to be completely covered by “a gradual rise in average sea level” in 30 years, Agence France-Presse reported, noting that “the end of the Maldives and its people could come sooner if drinking water supplies dry up by 1992, as predicted.”


"Maldives are still nowhere near under water. In fact, despite the COVID-19 pandemic’s decimation of tourism, the nation still attracts new developments. Just last week, Emirati development company awarded a $148 million contract to build 120 luxurious over-water and beachfront villas on Maledives’ South Male Atoll, Hotelier Maledives reported."


“The End of Snow Threatens to Upend 76 Million American Lives,” Bloomberg reported, referring to predictions of snow disappearance in the western United States.

A few months later, Sierra Nevada mountains would see its second snowiest winter on record.
