Nolte: Climate ‘Experts’ Are 0-41 with Their Doomsday Predictions

For more than 50 years Climate Alarmists in the scientific community and environmental movement have not gotten even one prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong.

In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened.

And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true.

Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with their predictions, but those of us who are skeptical of “expert” prediction number 42, the one that says that if we don’t immediately convert to socialism and allow Alexandria Ocasio-Crazy to control and organize our lives, the planet will become uninhabitable.

LIST OF DOOMSDAY PREDICTIONS THE CLIMATE ALARMIST GOT WRONG

Here is the source for numbers 1-28. As you will see, the individual sources are not crackpots, but scientific studies and media reports on “expert” predictions. The sources for numbers 29-41 are linked individually.

Today OP learned that fear mongering is an effective tactic. It can be used for politics, the market, and religion.

I am worried about the environment but these people are what fuck it up for everyone - they’ve cried wolf too many times and now everyone doubts the science. 
 

I remember freshmen year of college 1996 my biology professor had this whole presentation backed up with data and charts, etc about how we will exhaust our drinkable freshwater supply in like 15 years...dude seemed smart I respected him and went around parroting this info to people when I was young and impressionable and hadn’t developed healthy skepticism...obviously total 100% bullshit but the presentation he gave was specific and dead serious...really made me now think twice when I hear this shit and honestly you can’t believe any of it...there is a problem but there is so much data manipulation to paint the story the presenter wants that it’s totally unreliable...like the climate graphs with both axes (time and temp range) cut way down to show this scary looking trend...I could take the same data sets and present it to back two opposite conclusions depending on how I selectively use or present it. 

one thing I learned being a scientist is that if I want to tell some story I can always massage the data to make it back me up...hence the need for true peer reviewed scientific publications...any internet science or politician giving a presentation which was not peer reviewed take with a grain of salt

Say what? Randomly collected failed predictions by different people / institutions against... not collected correct predictions. And that proves that completely different people / institutions can't make correct predictions either?

I'm glad camicon exposes the truths the hypocritical MSM won't tell us.

You are personally gonna die tomorrow.  You should give all your belongings to people you like and go do something reckless that you have always wanted to do.

I am an old fuck. I can't begin to count how many times we have gone through all these stupid predictions that never happen.

All theses kids protesting these days are going fell real damn dumb when they grow up and look back at this.

Wait a few years, they will come up with a whole new and different doom and gloom prediction.

Rinse and repeat...endlessly.

I still remember practicing hiding under my desk in grade school, had an alarm for it and everything.

Why?? Because it was claimed inevitable that the Russians were going to bomb us any day now.

At least we would have been protected from the radiation by the safety and security of our desks...WTF?

Isnt it rather the complete lack of accurate predictions?

As a quick aside:

politicians lie all the time, are we to believe them now?

the government objectively appears to be almost completely incompetent in all endeavors. 

they are going to get this one right?

I have survived the cold war, the hole in the ozone layer, the millennium bug, global cooling, mad cow disease, acid rain, 2012, global warming, Ebola, Zika virus, Iraq's WMDs, peak oil and even 3 years of president Trump.

 

Maybe "climate change" will be the one to finally get me, unless the plastic straws get me first.

Josh - 41 times someone was wrong since 1960 fuck me....how many times where they right?

Yeah... almost 100% of doom and gloom predictions are wrong.

This whole article is kind of idiotic.

Josh - 41 times someone was wrong since 1960 fuck me....how many times where they right?

Are your seriously asking how many doomsday predictions have been right since 1960? Do you want to take an extra couple minutes to think about what you're asking?
