ABC News Special Report: Earth 2100

                ABC News aired a “Special Report” back in 2009 titled, “Earth 2100,” in which it warned of impending earthly devastation triggered by climate change. The first future “check-in” year was, you guessed it, 2015. At the time, the expert’s predictions for 2015 were that we’d be experiencing more intense hurricanes, “dangerous” temperatures, significantly lower agricultural output, $12 per gallon milk and $9 per gallon gasoline, “if there is any gas at all that is left.”
                Apparently, climate change pushers can be wrong as often as weather forecasters without suffering any consequences! And they were stupefyingly wrong! No wonder why they love their professions! They get to instill fear and hopelessness in their followers for no reason whatsoever. And get paid handsomely for doing so, in most cases. (I do much the same thing for very real reasons without getting paid!).

                One of the geniuses featured on this report stated, “All you have to do is look at the world today, with gas and food prices going up…” Yeah, as everyone knows, if commodity prices rise one day, they will keep doing so for the foreseeable future, if not forever. That is why everyone who has ever dabbled in the stock market or futures trading is a millionaire. So much for the cyclical nature of things. Or a knowledge of history. Or simple logic, the scientific method, skepticism, etc.

                It is more and more incredible what passes for "news" these days.
