“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
Ken was a real superstar back then, sort of like Al Gore today. He was also an idiot.
“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.”
• Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day
Denis is an eternal pessimist and is still peddling his BS to fellow travelers.
We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.”
• Martin Litton, Sierra Club director
Martin is another Luddite that peddled BS and still does to this day. Martin ever said no to a dollar.
So when the tenured professors start piling BS upon BS, peer review it and then predict the end of the world is nigh during Earth month, please remember that they have been peddling this claptrap for 4 decades and never got a thing right. They were absurdly wrong in 1970 yet, no matter how wrong they are or have been, the media still worships at their altar.
