Top 10 Dud predictions

Way too funny! Example after example, and he follows up with lessons to take away...
1. OUR CITIES WILL DIE OF THIRST
Lesson: This truly is a land "of drought and flooding rains". Distrust a professional panic merchant who predicts the first but ignores the second.
2. OUR REEF WILL DIE
Lesson: Reefs adapt, like so much of nature. Learn again that scares make big headlines and bigger careers.
3. GOODBYE, NORTH POLE
Lesson: The media prefers hot scares to cool truths. And it rarely holds its pet scaremongers to account.
4. BEWARE HUGE WINDS
Lesson: Beware of politicians riding the warming bandwagon.
5. GIANT HAILSTONES WILL SMASH THROUGH YOUR ROOF
Lesson: Beware also of government advisers on that warming wagon.
6. NO MORE SKIING
Lesson: The CSIRO's scary predictions are near worthless.
7. PERTH WILL BAKE DRY
Lesson: As I said, don't trust the CSIRO's model or its warnings.
8. ISLANDS WILL DROWN
Lesson: Trust the data, not the politicians.
9. BRITAIN WILL SWELTER
Lesson: If the Met can't predict the weather three months out, what can it know of the climate 100 years hence?
10. WE'LL BE HOTTER
Lesson: Something is wrong with warming models that predict warming in a cooling world, especially when we're each year pumping out even more greenhouse gases. Be skeptical.

...Those, then, are the top 10 dud predictions of that hooting, screaming and screeching tribe of warming alarmists. Look and laugh.

And dare to believe the world is bright and reason may yet triumph.

  2. Hey, Pogo! Merry Christmas. Good links! Thanks.

    I dunno, though, I think they're right. "We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period." It's one of those REAL inconvenient truths that must keep Mr. Goracle awake at nights.

  4. You'll notice they don't call it "Global Warming" anymore... they call it "Climate Change." :)

    I wasn't conscious for this, but apparently during the 70s, Global Cooling and a new ice age was the big fear.
