Would you read a betting sheet that got every race wrong? Would you bet on a team that never won a game? Well, the same Democrats who have been telling us since the 1970s that the Earth is doomed within a decade because of climate (add latest hoax) are still at it.
Fox: “Advocates of combating climate change are increasingly invoking doomsday scenarios to pressure President Biden to take unilateral action to lower greenhouse gas emissions, despite a history of such claims falling flat.
The rhetoric is coming not only from progressive activists but also Democrats on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers, in particular, have intensified their doomsday predictions as hopes for a climate change deal have waned within the Senate in recent days.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., recently told supporters that if immediate action was not taken on climate change, an immigration and public health crisis was likely to appear by 2030.”

“Thousands of people are dying,” said Sanders. “You’re going to see more mass migrations, more diseases … For the sake of future generations, our kids, our grandchildren, we have got to act.”
In 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said mankind would be finished by 2031. “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’” she said.
“People have been proclaiming the end of the world since forever. All have been wrong,” said Steve Milloy, who was an Environmental Protection Agency staffer for Trump. “They make these End Times predictions for a variety of reasons ranging from ignorance to politics to personal aggrandizement. Climate alarmists are trying to surf a heat wave to pressure Joe Biden into declaring a climate emergency,” he said.
In 2006, Al Gore said in “An Inconvenient Truth,” that we “would reach a point of no return in ten years if the global economy does not transition away from fossil fuels.” Likewise, Gore in 2009 cited data claiming there was a 75% chance that by 2013, the North Pole would be “ice-free” for the summer. Modern Democrats are just as dumb.
“If we don’t really begin to lower emissions, this planet has no chance,” Rep. Alan Lowenthal, D-Calif, said recently. “We have a few years left and that’s it. The planet is dying.”
“It’s incredibly difficult to translate temperature increases into changing weather effects using predictive models,” said Myron Ebell, the director of the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s center for energy and environment. “Most of the time the data doesn’t line up or scientists assume a larger temperature increase will happen than actually does and that skews the entire prediction.” But that’s data. Democrats prefer ideology.
