Current Apocalypse Forecast

According to the leading expert in Congress, the world will end in the year 2030.

UN experts had previously slated the end of the world in the year 2000.

Prior to that, the most widely recognized academic expert predicted the end of the world by 1980.

A few days after we landed on the moon 50 years ago, Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich forecast that we would disappear in a cloud of blue steam within 20 years. Ehrich is John Holdren’s close associate, and Holdren was Obama’s science advisor.

A year later, he predicted that we would run out of food and water within a decade.

    I used to wonder why God has a hell until I read about people like Error-lick…

    What is missing in the halls of power?

    Love God with everything that is in you, value your neighbor’s life as though it were your own

    NOT

    Love yourself as a god, to hell with everyone else.

    A graph of these deaths as percent of respective world population would add to the already absurd U.N. presentation.

  4. Bob Hoye says:

    The chart and the newspaper stories record the nonsense of current great revelations.
    Since known as Millerism, a similar mania called for the world to end on October 22, 1844. The rush of belief swept through the populous Eastern States and even into England.
    The day world did not end has been called the “Great Disappointment”.

    Wiki includes a bar chart showing the count to THE day.

  5. Joshua Peterson says:

    According to the visualization, there were no deaths from extreme temperatures until the 1930s: https://ourworldindata.org/uploads/2017/12/Deaths-by-catastrophe-type.png Methinks the deaths of the past may be sorely underestimated.

  6. TimC says:

    It would be interesting to compare global deaths by natural disasters versus political persecutions. In every decade, natural disaster deaths would be absolutely dwarfed by deaths due to political persecutions. And yet the goal of the climate alarmist movement is to vastly strengthen centralized political control to protect us from natural disasters. Idiocy.

    • Petit_Barde says:

      Methink the actual goal of the UN is to apply the Ehrlich’s “population decimation” in order to “save the planet”.

      This dangerous psychopath, his completely mad followers and all those climate zombies remind me of the worst episodes in human history.

      • arn says:

        Ehrlich wrote in his book Ecoscience((co written by obamas
        climate pope Holdren,who promoted the ice age scare in the 70ies and later AGW after it became famous and moneyharvesting))
        in 1977 that the earth population should be >2 billion
        incl. forced sterilisation etc.
        ((=global plans already existed back then))

        A few years later the georgia guidestones were built
        where it is written that earth population shoupd permanently be kept
        below 500 mio.

    India’s water crisis is already here. Climate change will compound it.

    Droughts and floods have pushed the nation’s leaky, polluted, and half-done water systems to the brink.

    by James Temple
    Apr 24, 2019

    Severe droughts have drained rivers, reservoirs, and aquifers across vast parts of India in recent years, pushing the nation’s leaky, polluted water systems to the brink.

    Force multiplier

    Climate change will surely make the problem worse. It’s uncertain what role higher temperatures have played in recent droughts, as the climate models have mainly predicted increasingly intense Indian monsoons. But the longer-term forecast is that the extremes will become more extreme, threatening more frequent flooding and longer droughts.

    Most climate studies predict that India will get more rain on average in the decades to come, though regional and seasonal patterns will vary sharply. A paper published last year in Geophysical Research Letters found that flash flooding will significantly increase in 78 of the 89 urban areas evaluated if global temperatures rise to 2 ˚C above preindustrial levels. The resulting catastrophes will disproportionately harm India’s poor, who frequently settle along the low-lying floodplains of major cities.

    Sea-level rise threatens to deluge villages and megacities, and poison the water tables, along the subcontinent’s 7,500 kilometers (4,660 miles) of coastline between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal.

    “There are already a lot of stressors on India,” says Navroz Dubash, a professor at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi. “But climate change is going to be a force multiplier.”

    Whether shoddy infrastructure or climate change is to blame for India’s water sources running dry or turning toxic won’t, in the end, much matter in the minds of the victims.

    I am the senior editor for energy at MIT Technology Review. I’m focused on renewable energy and the use of technology to combat climate change. Previously, I was a senior director at the Verge, deputy managing editor at Recode, and columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle. When I’m not writing about energy and climate change, I’m often hiking with my dog or shooting video of California landscapes.

      India is a hell hole. Climate change can only improve things there. Maybe someday it will be worth visiting, after man has improved it.

    • Caleb Shaw says:

      I spent three months in the Western Ghats of India in 1974, and returned for a reunion in 2000, and was amazed by the reforestation efforts. Hills that looked like an overgrazed desert in 1974 were tree-covered by 2000.

      The transformation was due to education, actual progress, and hard work. The boys herding goats had been educated about the advantages of trees and partially-shaded pasture, and no longer scrambled up trees to rip down branches for their goats. Far fewer people cooked with wood and dried dung, and many had switched to cooking with propane. Lastly, hard-working people went up into the hills to plant those trees, and to water them until the roots were established.

      Hiking through the trees in 2000, at a time in November when the dry season usually had started, I was amazed how green the landscape remained. There was cool shade and the air was moister and there was even a sprinkle of rain in November, when the end of “elephant monsoons” (unusually late rains) is usually in early October. I was very impressed how the people had taken sane steps to reverse overgrazing. It is the closest I have ever seen to mere mortals “changing the climate.”

      This process has continued over the past twenty years. Last year, due to some agreement made at one of the dingbat “Climate Accords” in Paris, the people of India broke a Guinness Book of Records mark of a half million trees planted in one day, by planting 50 million in one day.

      I have the sense James Temple is talking through his/her hat, with a somewhat condescending attitude towards India. If he/she ever visited that amazing nation, he/she didn’t seem to look around much. Many climate Alarmists seem to live in a dream-world, far from the ordinary people who take actual steps and sweat genuine sweat to reverse overgrazing.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        Investigating the real world and going to India is too much work.

        It’s much easier to throw together a word salad with a progressive bent, peppered with a few quotes and accompanied by an Indian photog’s pictures of poor people, garbage and dirty water.

        It doesn’t matter the paragraphs and sentences contradict each other. Progressive readers don’t mind and it’s good enough for MIT Technology Review.

        And it leaves enough time to walk the dog.

    Is there anywhere all of the failed predictions are listed? I’d like to see a time plot showing them all when they were made and when armageddon was supposed to have happened. There probably hasn’t been a single year in the last 40 that wasn’t scheduled for some apocalypse or other.

    Jimmy,

    I don’t know about every failed prediction, but Tony provides a good running start in the black links above:
