Hip Hip Hooray It's Earth Day
« on: April 24, 2015, 07:28:55 am »
https://www.aei.org/publication/18-spectacularly-wrong-apocalyptic-predictions-made-around-the-time-of-the-first-earth-day-in-1970-expect-more-this-year-2/

Some of the better predictions:

"Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 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.”

"In January 1970, Life reported, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”

Ecologist Kenneth Watt declared, “By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.'”

"Kenneth Watt warned about a pending Ice Age in a speech. “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years,” he declared. “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”

The science is settled.

Couple things I noticed here. Earth Day was a couple days ago, so way to be topical. Also, the guy who's quoted ended up murdering and composting his girlfriend, which is way more interesting than what you posted. Overall, this thread gets 1 of 5 stars.

Is that all you have?  I expected so much more from a man of your education.

The fact that the scientific support for anthropocentric climate change is so overwhelming seems rather suspicious to me.  Same with that "Vaccines don't cause autism" stuff.  How do you quantify what Tudo and I know to be true in our hearts??

YEah Earth day was forever ago... how old were you two days ago?    That was ancient history.    :uhh

It's topical enough.   I give you zero stars for your libtarded assessment.

Snake.. see if you can go a week without starting a topic with my name in the subject line,   or  in the text of one of your poats.

You won't get speedbagged for being  1. wrong   2.  shallow  3.  unintelligent.   4. a shrill libtarded hack  5.  A pedofile   6. A literal joke to the education profession....  I could go on.

Agreeing with my viewpoint = "winning an argument".  :lol

Your argument win total is probably about as high as JohnPaul's actual IQ.

It's not that I don't agree.   It's that you are wrong.

We can disagree on the color of paint.   

But when you make sweeping bigoted statements against a certain segment of the population and accuse them of doing something that they aren't actually doing.   You are wrong.  I'm sorry.

You accept a false premise and berate everyone else around you for not accepting that same false premise.    That's wrong.   I"m sorry.   

This behavior I have outlined above has not gone unnoticed  even by your libtarded "buddies."   

This behavior is likely to win you TOTY since all the obvious candidates have been banded.

Being factually wrong, like BP, Saluki and I repeatedly show you to be with actual evidence?

That's still not "winning" or "losing" an argument.  Just makes you a bonehead.
