In honor of #ClimateStrike day, here are FIFTY end of the world climate predictions that were total codswallop

If you’ve been watching the Climate Strike videos being shared on social media, you have probably decided the end of the world is, in fact, nigh. Not from the climate doom the strikers are predicting, of course, but from the strikers themselves. It’s hard not to see the end of mankind looming in the hysterical, teary-eyed, whimpering masses gathering in massive group therapy sessions to indulge primal screams and talk about how the world is going to be underwater in the next 11 minutes.

Seriously, check it out on Twitter if you have time and no will to live. It’s completely insane.

But if you don’t have the stomach to hear the future leaders of the world quivering in their snow boots about global warming every few days, how about looking back on some of the climate fanatics past predictions. You know, for an estimate on the future performance of their prophetic excursions.

If you’re into that, then oh boy has the Competitive Enterprise Institute got some good dang news. They’ve compiled just fifty of the countless “weather will kill all life on earth” predictions that proved, as such predictions always do, to be nothing but hot air.

Here is how they intro the list.

What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.

More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.

While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited

You can click through to see the full list, but I want to give you some of my personal favorites.


1969: ‘Everyone will disappear in a cloud of blue steam by 1989.’

Yep. Cloud of steam. See if this bit sounds familiar to you, from the New York Times in 1969.

“While Dr. Ehrlich is gathering that evidence in his laboratory at Stanford University, he is wasting no time trying to convince people that drastic action is needed to head off what he foresees as a catastrophic explosion fueled by runaway population growth, a limited world food supply, and contamination of the planet by man.”



They haven’t changed a bit, have they? DRASTIC ACTION NEEDED!!!!! And to avert what? Well exploding into blue steam, of course, said the venerable paper intensely writing this very day about global warming.

“‘We must realize that unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a could of blue steam in 20 years,’ the 37-year-old-scientists said during a coffe break at his laboratory. ‘”The situation is going to get continuously worse unless we change our behavior.'”

Change our behavior! They don’t even change the lyrics, y’all.


Arctic will be ice-free by 2018

Look, the blue steam prediction was from the sixties, not recently, so maybe it’s unfair to bring up those scientists. They were practically using leeches and alchemy way back then. What about something more recent? How about a prediction from 2008?

“Hansen, echoing work by other scientists, said that in five or 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer.”

Wrong. Again. But what’s really great about this one is the chiming in by Democrat Rep. Ed Markey, who called Hansen a “climate prophet.” Oopsie! But neither of them loses an ounce of credibility for being totally wrong. The climate alarmist industry just revises and presses on. Change a few dates, hire some Nordic teenager, and voila, more panic and more cash!


2009: Arctic ice-free by 2014

Just one more. This doesn’t need any extra typing from me. Just revel in the glory of it, one of many hundreds of examples from the bearded chakra perv with the carbon factory mansion.


You really must check out all 50 examples. It’s not just a gallery of fail, it’s like a slideshow of global deception. And they have brainwashed a whole generation into living in existential dread.

It’s sad. It’s funny, but it’s sad. And above all, it’s dang scary.

  1. This is just another one of those frauds perpetrated on the taxpayer to illicit financial gain from baseless speculation….there is a LOT of that among SciFientists. Or as the crazy feminazis on the left might say, “BELIEVE ALL SCIENCE!”

  2. Thus we see the joy of being a liberal – no matter how many times they’re wrong they still know that they are right. They’re right and we’re evil and ignorant for not listening to their screeching lies.

    And now we must listen to a pig-tailed prophet who is here because only about 36% of those in her own country, and the rest of Europe think she knows what the hell she’s talking about.

    1. “If a lie is only printed often enough, it becomes a quasi-truth, and if such a truth is repeated often enough, it becomes an article of belief, a dogma, and men will die for it.” -Isa Blagden

      1. Glad to oblige. A smile is always a good thing. And I often have to smile at our liberal brothers and sisters because they are so foolish. Explaining reality to them is like trying to potty train a crockpot.

    2. You are correct! This is one of my favorite sayings (that I think I invented, but apologies in advance if I didn’t): “Being left means never having to say that you are sorry or that you are wrong”. It has the advantage of being true! Despite the lack of empirical evidence to show how left-wing socialism is the better way versus capitalism and freedom, the young keep getting brain-washed by other brain-washed and/or evil educators & media types. It is a depressing wash, rinse, and repeat cycle. I am beginning to believe that liberalism is a mental disorder.

      1. I don’t know if you invented it but it certainly is appropriate.

        I too wonder about the “mental disorder” thing.

        I mostly believe it’s the result of all the years of indoctrination in public school and through the media. Some people can overcome that and learn to think for themselves. The type of people who become liberals cannot.

  3. Knowledge of science and history is sorely lacking.

    There is no such thing as man made climate change, but we could certainly be better stewards of our environment.

    1. All of the recent political boycotts—“snowflake boycotts”—have failed, because customers/shareholders seek value and the targets ranging from Nike to Chick-Fil-A continue to deliver value.

    1. have you seen the song on youtube?

      you gotta see that one..it’s funny and awesome.

      search for the “hide the decline song”

        1. Wrong.

          You ignored the matter I specified in the parentheses. The judgment was entirely about a lack of expeditious responsiveness not the false implication “Whether or not this is because he dare not cough up for discovery his magic climate-apocalypse formula is a question I leave for another day.” The underlying data or access to it was not a consideration in the ruling. In fact, the data in its entirety is publicly available.

  4. Yea but see, they had just never done environmentalism the right way.

    It works on paper I tell you! ON PAPER!

    omg I’m using paper

    *seppuku*

  5. Thanks Fred T. I’m going to send this chicken little climate hysteria prophecy to the governor. She has some explaining to do about her war on New Mexico coal and natural gas.

    1. “You can’t cheat an honest man; never give a sucker an even break, or smarten up a chump.” – Otis Criblecoblis

  6. It is scary. The only way to fight back is to make it personal. Encourage these teenage climate experts to do some research. Including this article. If that doesn’t work remind them that their doomsday gurus want to eliminate all fossil fuels. Explain to them that plastic is made from fossil fuel. Praise them for their courage and sacrifice in giving up plastic straws and Walmart bags. Then go for the kill. Ask them to give up their phones. Their plastic encased facebook lifeline. For the cause. I suspect they’ll be singing a different tune.

  7. One lady is holding a sign that’s says “EAT THE RICH”. How many homeless people would Michael Moore feed?

  8. Between this climate hysteria and the gender fluidity nonsense, today’s children are being subjected to nothing less than the worst kind of abusive indoctrination.

    Growing up has always been hard enough, but to drill this kind of crazy into young minds is criminal.

  9. Check out Tony Heller on YouTube. If you’re not fully convinced that this climate garbage is a lie, his site will.

    1. Deuteronomy 28:12 New International Version (NIV)
      12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.

  10. “Hell, yes, we’re going to take away your phones. And sneakers and cars, jackets and make up and microwave and modem and TV and fast food. Better start looking for a cave kids. Plastic is made from fossil fuel.

  11. Good to see you, Fred T. After review by the replay officials, it has become apparent that liberals are just the pet alligators that God flushed down the toilet.

  12. There’s a lot of money and power in this I guess…These millennials are already sucked in. Let’s stop another generation while we can..

  13. OK my adoring audience, I’m actually reading this. Because you should too. But I’ll simplify every line of it so you don’t have to. Literally, I’m reading every line of every article (not just the red highl’s) so you can be totally informed.

    The question is: will you listen to AT, or will you be an idiot. (Option 3: self-verify, which I encourage.)

    OK AND GO:

    1. Sterilize the population, turn the Church into a narrative arm.

    2. Curb population growth.

    3. Population control.

    4. “Author of “The Population Bomb.” Population control.

    5. SWITCH TO NUCLEAR ENERGY! Now that’s some science I can get behind! I approve this message!

    6. “Dear Mr President, we literally have no idea what we’re talking about. We can’t forecast, existing data does not allow… BUT CATASTROPHE! Now please go play smoochie-face with the commies.”

    7. Well you said a lot of sciency words there Mr. Tucker. I… guess… I also like grass? We’re talking about lawns and not bongs, right buddy?

    8. Africa sucks. I don’t understand weather. Who can we blame this on?

    9. Technology is evil, he said. On his computer. Which spell-checked his use of the word “refrigerator.” Also, f**king population! Oh, and CANCER! You’re afraid of CANCER, right?

    10. Our young protege is recycling our words! Buy his book! RECYCLING. (Seriously, I laughed so hard at this one.)

    11. Remember when we used to talk about acid rain?

    12. It’s not actually that bad. You realize we’d have to go back to the Stone Age, right?

    13. “The cause is unknown and no scientific attempt to predict whether the tren would continue is possible.” I am straight up quoting that.

    14. It’s hot.

    15. Dang, it’s hot.

    16. I don’t know whether this is an argument FOR melting the icecaps, or against it.

    17. “Why would you want to live in the Sahara.” Wow, racist. Also, “there’s nothing we can do to stop it.” So, why are we obsessing about it instead of just accepting it?

    18. “I AM CONVINCED THAT THE FLOOD I PREDICTED IS HAPPENING EVEN THOUGH IT CLEARLY IS NOT.”

    19. You know we can manufacture snow, right? Like, ski resorts do it all the time.

    20. ONLY the rich have to give up omnivore diets. Just them. Everyone else is fine. Whatever.

    21. “WILL destroy us.” “could result in”. Literally from headline to first paragraph. Not will. Could. Could. (Didn’t.)

    22. Prophecy! Don’t leftists usually riducle that?

    23. OFFS, we’re talking about ManBearPig again.

    24. Capitalism is evil. Something environment, I guess?

    25. WHY ARE YOU NOT LISTENING TO MY PROGNOSTICATIONS ABOUT MANBEARPIG!?

    26. ICE FREE ARCTIC HERALDS SCIENTIST. “Could” destabilize. Could. (Didn’t.)

    27. local shallowing and lowering of hydrostatic pressure forced gas hydrate dissociation and dissolved chloride depletions consistent with our geochemical OMG SCIENCE WORDS.

    28. Climate change isn’t tracking. Kinda like Global Warming and Global Cooling didn’t pan out. Let’s try climate CHAOS!

    1. Dear AT,
      Thanks fer Redding every line for me. as I was kinda cunfused abowt the globle climit crises…Hoxe. Now I thinks I aint.

      God bless you sir, and please remember to stick your unfortunately lengthy pomposity up your ass.

  14. What do they do with all those signs when they are done? recycle them? trash them? burn them? All of which contribute to “climate change”. I’d really like to know.

    1. Oh no, they end up littering and trashing the streets. Then the cities spend countless dollars cleaning up after their mess. They’re most likely taken to the dump or the recycling plant but it costs the taxpayers $$$ because they’re paying for it.

    2. They are probably the trashiest people (literally) there are. I’d like to see the mess they left the day after.

    3. They could just recycle them…maybe it would save the planet! LOL!!!!! The problem is this…do you notice, from reading the entire list over the past 50+ years that writing capabilities and grammar have changed significantly? Proper English has been obliterated by the dumbing-down by FauxJournalists and SciFientists, so that the currently educated can understand better what is being said.

    4. If they would simply teach kids not to litter like they taught us so many years ago (“Don’t be a litterbug!”) it would go a long way to instilling lifelong habits of respecting the environment without going crazy.

      1. Remember this? It’s the old anti-litter ad, featuring Iron Eyes Cody, whom my sources are telling me is a relative of Elizabeth Warren:

        1. Steven Crowder did a hilarious spoof on that commercial. I tried to find a link but couldn’t. It plays on his podcasts.

      1. I recall seeing a poster on the door of my son’s new classroom in 2nd or 3rd grade. It was a pledge to the earth.
        It is driven by educators and they are scaring the bejeebers out of our kids. I think it is child abuse every bit as much as their 101 possible genders.

  15. It’s funny…if you look up about the coming Ice Age predicted in the 1970s, environmentalists will now claim that no one ever said that or, they were misquoted or, ironically, it was media hype. But you’d better believe global warming is real!

    1. …and now we have written proof! I used the link, copied all of the articles and letters, for posterity…some are real doozies!

    1. That’s because there’s some actual science involved. From what I’ve read, the Ice Age is actually the natural state of the earth and we’re in a temporary period of unusual warmth.

    2. That is funny when you see them all listed…every 10 years, we are either going into “global warming,” or plummeting into a “mini-ice age.” I guess when one does not work, they switch? I will say, the SciFientists have improved significantly over the decades in determining accurate paths for hurricanes but outside of that? Meh.
