Scientists Recycling The Same Scam – Decade After Decade

In 1958, scientists said carbon dioxide will melt peat bogs, raise sea level 200 feet and drown all the world’s seaports.  They said sea level was rising six inches per year since the 1930’s.

Scientists get away with recycling these scams, because they know that many people don’t remember anything for more than a few minutes.

    Really cold at the Summit. Is that the side effect of more CO2 in the atmosphere?

    Hey! I resent that! I remembered something for ten minutes once!

  3. Neal S says:

    What was that? Raised at the rate of 1.25 inches a year!?!?! I might believe 1.25 mm.

    And certainly NOT 4 times whatever bogus figure was given. I wonder where those particular figure came from. Sadly, alarmism is nothing new.

    It seems to me that scientists worry an awfully lot about an awfully lot of things these days. If half of those worrying would spend their time working on practical and economically feasible solutions to the problems they claim we are threatened by, we would be a whole lot better off and not be constantly bombarded with this crap. I sometimes think that If Michael Mann came out with another hockey stick and some real scientists invented a usable warp drive and both were announced on the same day that Mann would be above the fold and the warp drive story would be on page 9.

    Or, as they say about goberment employees,
    ….”once hired, can’t be fired, and YOU get to pay for them!”
