A senior U.N. official says entire nations have ten years to act on global warming or be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels. It sounds like something in today’s headlines, but that prediction was made for the year 2000 … in 1989.
The Associated Press covered the prediction on June 29, 1989. Noel Brown, who was then director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Protection (UNEP), said coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos. Brown went on to say that governments have a ten-year window opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
“No prediction made by any climate alarmist has ever proven to be true,” says Steve Milloy of JunkScience.com. “They’ve been making them for more than 30 years now. None have been right. Their models stink. I’m not quite sure why anyone would believe them.”
