In the 1970s climate scientists claimed the Earth could face a new ice age, with millions dead, or complete human extinction.
Then, starting in the 1980s it became global warming, with the earth only surviving 10, or 20, or 30 years.
Now it’s called “climate change” and the lies keep getting more bizarre with these outlandish claims.
Scientists tell us over and over that they know what’s best.
Conservatives, Christians, and so-called “climate change deniers” are ridiculed, scorned, and even banned by the media, the self-described scientific “experts” and the radical environmentalist crowd.
It doesn’t seem to matter to them that these so-called “experts” have been wrong about the issue of climate change for decades.
Most rational people of any ideological bent realize there comes a time to reject the predictions and prophecies of people who are wrong time after time.
But for the Left and their media lapdogs, being wrong doesn’t matter, it’s all about the green – not the environment, the money.
Anyone who threatens to disrupt their doom-and-gloom narrative is immediately censored, ridiculed, and in some places threatened with arrest.
Take BBC, who announced its decision to censor any reports by climate skeptics, and signaled its decision to shill for climate alarmists.
For example, just a few weeks ago, BBC’s Jonathan Amos their “Science Correspondent” published a terrifying article titled “Greenland and Antarctica ice loss accelerating.”
According to “expert” Amos, “Earth’s great ice sheets, Greenland and Antarctica, are now losing mass six times faster than they were in the 1990s thanks to warming conditions.”
Of course, the BBC is not alone, in either their banning of so-called “climate skeptics”, or in their dire predictions of death and destruction to come.
Journalists around the world ran with this story of global destruction at the hands of greedy capitalists.
USA Today weighed in with a story headlined, “Greenland and Antarctica are now melting six times faster than in the 1990s, accelerating sea-level rise.”
Leftist British publication The Guardian came, of course, with a sensational tabloid headline: “Losses of ice from Greenland and Antarctica are tracking the worst-case climate scenario, scientists warn.”
And the usual suspects all weighed in as well, CNN, PBS, MSNBC, scores of newspapers and even National Geographic.
The source of these dire predictions was a report from last year in the little known journal Nature, which was released online in March of this year.
And where did they get their information? In findings summarized by NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which were actually not scientific facts but theoretical assertions.
Of course, that distinction is not one the Left is willing to make. If it fits their political narrative it is “science.”
The most alarming sounding statistic from the NASA assertions was this:
“The two regions [Greenland and Antarctica] have lost 6.4 trillion tons of ice in three decades; unabated, this rate of melting could cause flooding that affects hundreds of millions of people by 2100.”
To most, this sounds like a lot of ice, but it’s not. This equates to 6,400 billion tons, meaning an ice cube about 11.5 miles per side.
Maybe that still sounds like a lot. But to put it in to perspective, if you dropped this ice cube into an ocean and let it melt, it would raise the level of the oceans by 9/16ths of one inch.
How terrifying. How deadly. How earth shattering.
And on top of it, that is only if, in fact, the NASA assertions are even right.
Remember the hole in the ozone layer that meant humans were going to be burned up by the sun?
You probably don’t, because over time it corrected itself and “scientists” and radical environmentalists moved on to a new way to raise money through fear mongering.
