Why Do People Continue To Believe These Scare Stories?

“[M]ost of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years,” the fake New York Times told the world 25 years ago, all the way back in 1995.

Fact check: It’s 2021 and America’s East Coast beaches are doing just fine!

Here’s the relevant portion from the original Times’ article:

A continuing rise in average global sea level, which is likely to amount to more than a foot and a half by the year 2100. This, say the scientists, would inundate parts of many heavily populated river deltas and the cities on them, making them uninhabitable, and would destroy many beaches around the world. At the most likely rate of rise, some experts say, most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years. They are already disappearing at an average of 2 to 3 feet a year.

The date of the article is September 18, 1995. The headline reads, “Scientists Say Earth’s Warming Could Set Off Wide Disruptions.”

So here we are 25 full years later, a whole quarter of a century later, and the first prediction from these unnamed “experts” has not even come close to occurring, so why should we believe the dire predictions about the year 2100?

We shouldn’t.

Here’s something else that didn’t happen…


This is why the priests of the Church of Global Warming now make prophesies for the end of the century, when no one from today will be alive to point things like this out.

I'm waiting for the day Al Gore, who made hundreds of millions off of climate scaremongering, turns to the cameras, cackles maniacally, and says, "I got mine, suckers!"

They're always moving the goalposts. Sort of like Joe Biden saying MAYBE we could celebrate Independence Day with a family or neighborhood cookout. Like we ever stopped....
