How accurate are past global warming predictions ?

I like this article from The Stream, which lists a bunch of failed predictions by global warming socialists.

Here’s the list:

  1. 2015 is the ‘last effective opportunity’ to stop catastrophic warming
  2. France’s foreign minister said we only have “500 days” to stop “climate chaos”
  3. President Barack Obama is the last chance to stop global warming
  4. Remember when we had “hours” to stop global warming?
  5. United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there was only 50 days left to save Earth
  6. Let’s not forget Prince Charles’s warning we only had 96 months to save the planet
  7. The U.N.’s top climate scientist said in 2007 we only had four years to save the world
  8. Environmentalists warned in 2002 the world had a decade to go green
  9. The “tipping point” warning first started in 1989

Here are the 3 I thought were the worst:

7. The U.N.’s top climate scientist said in 2007 we only had four years to save the world

Rajendra Pachauri, the former head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in 2007 that if “there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late.”

“What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment,” he said.

Well, it’s 2015 and no new U.N. climate treaty has been presented. The only thing that’s changed since then is that Pachauri was forced to resign earlier this year amid accusations he sexually harassed multiple female coworkers

8. Environmentalists warned in 2002 the world had a decade to go green

Environmentalist write George Monbiot wrote in the UK Guardian that within “as little as 10 years, the world will be faced with a choice: arable farming either continues to feed the world’s animals or it continues to feed the world’s people. It cannot do both.”

In 2002, about 930 million people around the world were undernourished, according to U.N. data. by 2014, that number shrank to 805 million. Sorry, Monbiot.

9. The “tipping point” warning first started in 1989

In the late 1980s the U.N. was already claiming the world had only a decade to solve global warming or face the consequences.

The San Jose Mercury News reported on June 30, 1989 that a “senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000.”

That prediction didn’t come true 15 years ago, and the U.N. is sounding the same alarm today.

Should we believe the global warming socialists? Based on past predictions, we should not. And we especially should not because current levels of solar activity – which is the actual cause of climate change – are extremely low. It’s getting colder, not warmer.

 

One thought on “How accurate are past global warming predictions ?”

  1. Environmental doomsayers are nothing new. I remember seeing Jacques Cousteau on the Tonight show back in the late 70s. He told Carson that man had killed the oceans. They would be completely lifeless in 10 years and nothing could stop it. It has to be some kind of psychosis.
