Fifteen Foolish Forecasts: How did environmentalists get it so wrong on Earth Day 1970?

Here are a couple…

“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….” • Life Magazine, January 1970

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” • Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. 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.” • Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Read the whole thing here.

And yet, here we are 40 (!!!) years later, still accommodating these dumbasses and still listening to this twaddle from these self-anointed experts, to the point where we have $4.00 a gallon gasoline, an out of control EPA, and “carbon taxes” and “carbon credits.”  Oh yeah, and we still have “Earth Day.”

This article is irrefutable proof that every time one of these jackasses opens their mouths, they should be laughed out of the room, rounded up by the guys in white jackets, and charged in their own “environmental courts” with crimes against humanity, as well as stealing my oxygen.  Morons.

    I am not a jarhead. To be honest I don’t even know why we call Marines jarheads. However I think I found a great blog. One I will continue to read for years to come. I missed Vietnam by one year. The men and women that serve this great country have my undying, and unflagging respect and honor. I am currently reading as much of this blog as I can tonight. Great job.

      Alan:
      We are called jarheads because of the “high and tight” haircuts that we wear. They tend to resemble the lid on a jar…hence the name jarhead. Other branches of the military use it in a derogatory manner. We take that as a compliment. 🙂
