FAIL: environmental predictions of the past

Epic fail

With a track record like this, who could possibly doubt the environmentalists’ warnings of a forthcoming global warming apocalypse?

h/t The Air Vent – and as Jeff said, check out the present day back-pedalling from the original doom-mongers who probably thought they’d never be picked up on their embarrassing errors.


  1. The Loaded Dog says:

    “On the whole I would stand by these predictions — not predictions, sorry, scenarios — as having at least in a general way actually come true,” he said.

    Mr Nostradamus himself the one and only Michael Oppenheimer in response to his failed prophesy, err prediction — err not prediction sorry, err what I meant to say was “generalised possible scenario”

    Come in spinner…..

  2. All the failed past predictions show only one thing.
    That one day, hopefully in the not too distant future, the eyes of the world be opened and people will see, that in fact we, as the human race, only on this planet for a blink of an eye, do not know everything about weather cycles, can not foresee the long distant future, and have an extremely limited view on the past.
    Please keep these articles coming. You are an inspiration, in what is a terribly confused and misinterpreted time, although not unique moment, in history.

  3. Interesting that article doesn’t include much of Hansen’s predictions.. Some of them that failed Hansen apparently still stands by.

    But Erlich is an easy target. I don’t normally hand out this term, but he’s a total whacko, and has been for a long time.

      “I don’t normally hand out this term, but he’s a total whacko”

      Uhuh, I’d be interested in the term you reserve for Hansen then…

  4. Ah yes, they’ll wheedle and spin and blame the unpredictability on AGW….probably something like…..”This is far worse than we thought, the climate is playing havoc with our computer modelling” and the sheeple will buy it because as we know, it is a religion to warmists.

      “the climate is playing havoc with our computer modelling”

      Yes, a climate of lunacy…
