50 years of doomsday climate-change predictions that didn’t come true
Quote:
[Mermin] was echoing the doomsday warnings of adults like Al Gore, who predicted the North Pole would be ice-free by 2016; Prince Charles, who said in 2009 that because of capitalism and consumerism, we had just 96 months or 8 years, i.e., until 2017, to save the world; and more recently Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who proclaimed Miami would disappear in “a few years” due to climate change.

Writing for the Competitive Enterprise Institute on Sept. 18, 2019, Myron Ebell and Steven J. Milloy remind us that Gore, Chucky and AOC are just the latest instances of doomsayers who have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. Like Gore, et al., the makers of these apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science. The problem is this: “None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true,” and the media won’t report on the failed predictions.

What follows is a collection of apocalyptic climate predictions from notable people in government and science:
