FLASHBACK: Climate Hoaxers Warned of Impending Doom by Year 2000 if ‘Global Warming’ Not Addressed

We’re still alive.

Published

A 1989 Associated Press article has re-surfaced citing “environmental officials” who scare-mongered about the end of the earth as we know it if “global warming” was not addressed by the year 2000.

“A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000,” the piece said.

The report is particularly relevant today, as it echoes the same type of rhetoric pushed by the radical political left. Recently, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) proposed a “Green New Deal” with the hefty price tag of $93 million to the taxpayer, in order to save the world from the same impending doom that climate scientists have been warning about for decades. The apocalypse, as it turns out, is quite fickle. It has eluded us, despite the warnings from the esteemed members of the scientific community.

“Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco- refugees,’ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP,” according to the report. “He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.”

That 10-year window came to pass. So did another one. And soon, another will have done the same. Still no doom and gloom.

The piece continued:

As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.

hifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse.

The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown.

None of that has happened.

But that has not stopped the political left from continuously fear-mongering. Still, they will call Republicans “climate deniers” or “science deniers” if you rebuke their alarmism this time around.
