The Full List of Absurd Forecasts of Doom From Big Enviornment (That the News Media Bought)

This is via Anthony Watts and, apparently, the author is unknown. of these gloom and doom forecasts was wrong. Every one of them.
Big Environment looks at these as fundraising opportunities and doesn't care much whether the forecasts are correct as long as the money flows. In coming up with these, both Big Environment and Big Climate (there is considerable overlap) never seem to figure in the ingenuity of the human race. Instead, they rely on authoritarianism and nihilism which, inexplicably, seems to appeal to a subset of people. But, these people tend to be disproportionately powerful because Big Climate/Enviornment craves money and power while the rest of us just want to be left alone to live our lives and raise our families.

So, the next time you hear environmental gloom and doom, take it with a cubic foot of salt.
