Past Potty Predictions that have Passed Away!

There are many failed Alarmist predictions. According to those fools, the planet should not exist.

May 11, 1982: Mostafa Tolba, executive Director of the UN Environment Program said the world governments must take action now or face disaster.  Lack of such action would bring
by the turn of the century, an environmental catastrophe which will witness devastation as complete, as irreversible as any nuclear holocaust. (Real Science)
Century has turned, planet survived

Jan 19, 2009: Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen declared:
Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. (link)
2013 arrived with the world still intact! 

I remember when estimating how much time was available to avert a global climate catastrophe was measured in decades. We need to act urgently. We no longer have decades; we have hours.
Several Hours have gone by since 2009 - FAIL

July 9, 2009: The heir to the throne, [Prince Charles] told an audience of industrialists and environmentalists at St James's Palace last night that he had calculated that we have just 96 months left to save the world. (Note that HE HAD CALCULATED)
Do you really believe the World will die Next July?

October 19, 2009: Gordon Brown said negotiators had 50 days to save the world from global warming.     (Link)                                

     19/12 plus 50 days - 8/12/09.   TIMES UP!!!

We cannot finish this post without ridiculing the 2007 Australian of the Year - Tim Flannery.
He won the Award on the back of his book: The Weathermakers. Flannery's book, in a counter volume by Dr Wes Allen,  was 
shown to contain

  • 23 misinterpretations, 
  • 28 contradictory statements, 
  • 31 untraceable or suspect sources, 
  • 45 failures to reflect uncertainty, 
  • 66 over-simplifications or factual errors, 
  • 78 exaggerations and over a hundred unsupported dogmatic statements, many of them quite outlandish.

Tim Flim Flam also has some Potty Predictions from 
Australian Government wastes billions on Climate Change Hoax. 

Back then Flannery said  to play a thought game ten years on i.e. 2016:
  • We are coming to the peak of production of oil; and so inevitable fuel cutback which might help the fight against climate change;
  • Governments would be spending even more money defending their low-lying areas;
  • Oil prices 2 or 3 times what they were then;
  • increased problems of Hurricanes and Insurance losses;
  • problems of water unavailability - Warragamba Dam would never again be full;
  • sea levels to rise;
  • arctic ice to melt.
 Craig Kelly examines how reliable Flannery’s prediction are:
  • Oil then 62.80/barrel prediction (2 or 3 times) - 125.60 -184.40 but has halved (See which way will oil price go?)
  • Arctic see ice levels higher than what they’ve been at any time over the last decade (prediction period)
  • Warragamba Dam for two year 80% full and now lapping at the brims at 95%. Now NSW taxpayers are paying half a million dollars per day for a rusting unneeded desalination plant.

Craig says that, every time we have a difficult problem, we should put Flannery in a room and ask what his prediction is and then do the exact opposite.
