    Default First Earth Day Predictions!!

    1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

    2. “We are in an environmental crisis that threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal Environment.

    3. The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”

    4. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 issue of Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

    Default What they all intentionally won't talk about is...

    EARTH DAY is just another Money Maker (if you have any intelligence at all).

    The EARTH is....'HOW MANY BILLIONS OF YEARS OLD?"

    And we selfish, self-centered, easily-led, and in constant need of entertainment humans are supposed to be convinced...WE ARE RESPONSIBLE for everything that happens on Earth?

    We are responsible for the rain, snow, wind, hurricanes, tornado's, dust storms, thunder storms, fires, famine, hunger and GLOBAL WARMING/COOLING too?

    We sure are a GULLABLE bunch who are convinced WE have anything that has the power to REVERSE what has been taking place HERE on the BIG BLUE MARBLE for millions of Years???

    Let's ask AL GORE to PROVE IT????
    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.

    And they are still at it now! As it serves the interests of one political party-the dems.
    If it served the other party-the Republicans- it would have never even got off its baby legs to start with.
    utter bullshit is what it is as that 50 year old prediction so clearly shows.
    50+ plus years of a damn lie and it is still bearing such bountiful fruits for its political party.

    I don't know many idiots worth $300 million. However, if you want to replace "idiot" with crook, you may be onto something.

    So many predictions, so many wrong. And since the first Earth day there have been plenty more predictions that were wrong. In the 80's Ted Danson said we had 10 years until the ocean is dead. Also in the 80's peak oil was predicted to happen in 20 years. 2006 Algore said we only had 10 years until the earth would be irreversible on a course of global warming. On this very message board you can go back 10 years or more and see claims that the polar bears would soon be extinct. Miami should be under water by the rising ocean. Recently the claim is we only have 12 years until the climate emergency will destroy us all and in 12 years time that prediction and deadline will come and go.

    Nonsense

    Default First Earth Day Predictions!!

    In the 60s it was “the greenhouse effect”, then it became “global warming”. But since the much predicted heating of the Earth never took place, they made it “climate change”

    In 1970, we had only 15 years left

    In 2018, we had only 12 years left

    In 1976, we were told of an impending ice age

    In the 1980s, we were warned of the ozone hole

    A few years later, acid rain was going to kill us all

    Then came deforestation of the rain forest

    Now we are told climate change will be the end of civilization, but There is hope, just give all your money to the politicians in Washington, give up your
    liberties, start living like the Amish and drive around in windup toys, while betting your future on solar panels and windmills and catastrophe will be averted. To add insult to injury, you are expected to be preached to by a petulant 18 year old with an autism spectrum disorder and like it.

    All the while, our so called green new leaders are jetting to exotic locations to discuss climate change and how to fleece us, all while boozing it up, dining in fancy restaurants, and living in millionaire style. The only thing missing is Robin Leach narrating the whole set up.

    Sounds like a plan, where do I sign?
