Earth day is coming up. It is a good time to remind the public what the predictions were 52 years ago

American Thinker:

By Jack Hellner

On the first Earth Day, April 22, 1970, the world was warned that billions would die soon because of a disastrous ice age.  The Earth had been cooling for thirty years, and it was about to get much worse.  Crops would not survive the ice age, so the people couldn’t be fed.  The Earth was cooling even though CO2, the population, and fossil fuel consumption were rising rapidly, which we are told causes warming.

The complicit media dutifully repeated these warnings to scare the public with no questions and no research.  The warnings were 100% wrong because they were WAGS (wild-a– guesses) instead of based on scientific data.

In 1922, this was in the Washington Post to scare the public. Again, there was no research or questions or scientific data before they published this piece. MORE h/t NAAC

  1. Remember the bearded old guy with the sandwich sign that said: “REPENT! THE END IS NIGH!”
    Now he’s wandering around with one that sez: Global Warmists Are Nukin Futz!
    Didja ever notice that the same liars who tell us fairy tales like:
    White supremacy
    Systemic racism
    Conservatives are domestic terrorists
    Afghanistan was perfectly executed
    Our hospitals are over-loaded with COVID victims
    The open Southern border is not a crisis
    Joe Biden has over-performed
    Our burning cities were “mostly peaceful protests”
    There was no election fraud
    Aaaaaaaannnnnnd inflation is good
    …… are the same ones pushing Global Warming!

    Speaking of… here’s a collection of more science fiction hits than you can shake a big, ugly Voodoo stick at! These are some of the more famous old chestnuts in the News that never materialized, but the Bought & Paid For, Knee-Pad Media dutifully published, then conveniently seemed to lose any record of them…

    Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol!

  2. Global warming and Earth Day are all false religion’s and do I dare say COVID is ranked in there somewhere, you all are going to die if you don’t get the jab and wear your mask.

    Didn’t the guy who started all the global warming garage murder his girlfriend? 🤔

    These people are absolutely nuts.🥜

  3. All you need to remember about the first Erf day is the co founder of Erf day was a scumbag hippie named Ira Einhorn who killed his girlfriend, stuffed her body into a trunk and composted her body and then fled to France before getting caught and eventually extradited back to the U S and becoming a cause celebre among the left. I hope the bastard is still in prison. He should’ve been composted himself, a long time ago.

  4. “Dire consequences unless you give me all the money and power on Earth.”

    That pretty much sums up the “green” movement.

    Only fools and demented blind acolytes can’t see it.

  5. If you think man has the power to do what environmentalists claim, consider this:

    The greatest single release of energy ever produced by man was the Tsar Bomb. It created a fireball 5 miles across, a mushroom cloud over 40 miles high and nearly 60 miles across, and caused a seismic wave that was still detectable on its third trip around the planet.

    It released 210 petajoules of energy (210 x 10^15).

    The average amount of energy the earth receives from the sun is 170 petajoules.

    Every second.
