Decades of Failed “Tipping-Point” Prophesies

Fear prevents us from thinking.

The emotional panic that accompanies fear actually shuts down the prefrontal cortex, or the rational thinking part, of our brains.

A populace that stops thinking for itself is a populace that is easily led, easily manipulated and easily controlled.

Our leaders –those unseen, which reside high-above the puppets in elected office– rule by fear.

“Do exactly as we say, or the world could end.”

Noel Brown, 1989

Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program (UNEP), said back in 1989 that governments had just a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

He said that 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.

Also according to Brown, who was quoting eminent scientists of the time, coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,” threatening political chaos.

Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, said Brown. 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, he claimed.

Well, Brown, it’s now been a full 32 years since you made those prophesies, and global temperatures, as measured by the satellites, have actually fallen below the levels they were in the late-1980s.

Brown finished by saying that even the most conservative scientists ″already tell us there’s nothing we can do now to stop a change″ of about 3 degrees, and he concluded with a scripted oration about how all nations need to reduce the use of fossil fuels and slash their emissions of carbon dioxide–you know the one…

James Hansen, 2006

Often described as the father of the global warming, NASA’s James Hansen has made many a catastrophic climate claim over the decades.

“The greenhouse effect is here,” he confidently pronounced back on June 23, 1988 during his Congressional testimony on man-made global warming.

During that testimony, Hansen told the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee there is only a “1 percent chance” that he is wrong in blaming rising temperatures around the world on the buildup of man-made gases in the atmosphere.

And when asked in an interview in New York City in 1989, “If what you’re saying about the greenhouse effect is true, is anything going to look different down there in 20 years?” Hansen replied, “The West Side Highway will be under water. And there will be tape across the windows across the street because of high winds. And the same birds won’t be there. The trees in the median strip will change.”

By 2006, instead of admitting he maybe overegged the catastrophe a little, Hansen actually doubled-down.

As alarmists often do, Hansen simply pushed the doomsday date back a few years in the hope that no one would notice. He said in September, 2006 that the world now had a 10-year window of opportunity to take decisive action on global warming and avert a catastrophe.

Hansen pleaded with governments, imploring that they adopt an alternative scenario to keep carbon dioxide emission growth in check and limit the increase in global temperatures to 1 degree Celsius (1.8F).

“I think we have a very brief window of opportunity to deal with climate change … no longer than a decade, at the most,” he said at the Climate Change Research Conference in California’s state capital.

If the world continues with a “business as usual” scenario, Hansen said temperatures will rise by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 7.2F) and “we will be producing a different planet.”

On that warmer planet, ice sheets would melt quickly, causing a rise in sea levels that would put most of Manhattan under water. Hansen used the old tricks of melting Arctic sea ice and a reduction in polar bear numbers to try and pile pressure on world governments: “It is not too late to save the Arctic, but it requires that we begin to slow carbon dioxide emissions this decade,” he said. 

Two years later, in 2008, Hansen was still at it, now claiming that the Arctic would be ice free by 2018.

Within just “5 to 10 years, the Arctic will be free of sea ice in the summer,” he announced.


Suffice it to say, Hansen was spouting more nonsense, and 10 years after he made his ice-free claim, Arctic sea ice volume was up 7 percent, and melting at the slowest rate on record:

[DMI]


And even today, as we approach the summer of 2021, Arctic Sea Ice volume today is doing just fine.

Levels are actually above those of the past few years, and the latest data point (May 23) shows thickness is holding at 5 meters across vast areas:

[DMI]

Hansen is considered the father of global warming.

And somehow, despite his decades of failed predictions, the man still holds credibility, he still has sway and say within the anthropgenic global warming field, and is still the poster child (or at least was until Greta Chunderberg came along) for rags such as The Guardian.

How anyone proved so wrong for so long can still garner the praise and accolades James Hansen does is testament to the agenda at play.

The political tool that is AGW will keep on rolling, for as long it’s needed, and the ever growing line of the poor and ill informed will continue following that Pied Piper into the Hamelin cave, where their self-respect and ability to think critically will never be seen again.

Hansen hasn’t been thrown under the bus because he is still toes the line, he still spouts the scripted narrative.

What do these guys have on him?

Or is it that he’s simply too proud to admit he got it wrong?

However, there is still time to save face, Hansen — but at 80 years old, you probably only have a 5 to 10 year window of opportunity to take decisive action.

6 Thoughts to “Decades of Failed “Tipping-Point” Prophesies”

    Thank you for staying strong in the face of such adversity.

  2. The ability to predict is the best objective measure of scientific and technical competence.
    Climate doomsters have a perfect NEGATIVE predictive track record – every very-scary climate prediction, of the ~80 they have made since 1970, has FAILED TO HAPPEN.

    “Rode and Fischbeck, professor of Social & Decision Sciences and Engineering & Public Policy, collected 79 predictions of climate-caused apocalypse going back to the first Earth Day in 1970. With the passage of time, many of these forecasts have since expired; the dates have come and gone uneventfully. In fact, 48 (61%) of the predictions have already expired as of the end of 2020.”

    To end 2020, the climate doomsters were proved wrong in their scary climate predictions 48 times – at 50:50 odds for each prediction, that’s like flipping a coin 48 times and losing every time! The probability of that being mere random stupidity is 1 in 281 trillion! It’s not just global warming scientists being stupid.

    These climate doomsters were not telling the truth – they displayed a dishonest bias in their analyses that caused these extremely improbable falsehoods, these frauds.

    There is a powerful logic that says no rational person or group could be this wrong for this long – they followed a corrupt agenda – in fact, they knew they were lying.

    The global warming alarmists have a NO predictive track record – they have been 100% wrong about every scary climate prediction – nobody should believe them.

    The radical greens have NO credibility, make that NEGATIVE credibility – their core competence is propaganda, the fabrication of false alarm.

    CLIMATE CHANGE, COVID-19, AND THE GREAT RESET

    Allan MacRae published in the Calgary Herald on September 1, 2002, based on communication with Dr Tim Patterson:

    3. “If [as we believe] solar activity is the main driver of surface temperature rather than CO2, we should begin the next cooling period by 2020 to 2030.”

    MacRae updated his global cooling prediction in 2013, based on cold events that occurred starting circa 2008 near the end of Solar Cycle 23:

    3a. “I suggest global cooling starts by 2020 or sooner. Bundle up.”

    In 2019, expert meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo and I co-authored a paper describing the late planting in 2018 and 2019 and the huge Great Plains crop failure of 2019 due to cold, wet weather.
    THE REAL CLIMATE CRISIS IS NOT GLOBAL WARMING, IT IS COOLING, AND IT MAY HAVE ALREADY STARTED October 27, 2019
    Planting was ~one month across the Great Plains of North America for crop years 2018 and 2019. In 2018 the growing season was warm and the crop recovered, but in 2019 there was a huge crop failure across the Great Plains. In 2019 fully 30% of the huge USA corn crop was never planted because of wet ground. Much of the grain crop across the Great Plains was severely harmed because of early cold and snow in the Fall.

    We saw these very-cold weather patterns due to the instability of the polar vortex at the end of SC23 circa 2008, and this enabled me in 2013 to re-calibrate our 2002 global cooling prediction from “2020-2030” to “2020 or sooner”, at the end of much weaker SC24. A huge crop failure across the Great Plains of North America occurred in 2019. Now we have this brutal winter and very cold spring in 2020-2021. Nailed it.

    Crop losses are already significant this year. Worrisome.

    Best regards, Allan

    Wouldn’t it be fun to compare and contrast the preachers and the cults end of the world prophecies that are missed and recast over and over to the climate doomsayers in the same article?

  4. RAFO

    Men like Hansen are bought and paid for to follow the “narrative”. It’s either money, blackmail or personal threats that keep them toeing the party line. Global warming paranoia was never about climate, but population control and manipulation. Al Gore’s film was a “convenient lie” to put fear into the populace. When people feel threatened (think global warming, Covid, or even gun control) they’ll readily give up hard won freedoms to feel “safe”… only to find out later they’ve been “had” because they think out of fear, like you said, and not reason. Yes, the puppet masters know us very very well.

  5. Robert Campbell

    It is interesting that here in Australia news.com.au, after years of lecturing us on the perils of AGW (and getting plenty of dissenters in their comments section- yours truly included-), now rarely mention AGW directly, and the articles they do on impending cold weather systems almost never have comments opened.
    The only conclusion I can reach is that they know they are flogging a dead horse but can’t bring themselves to admit it.

  6. prioris

    Hansen is considered the father of global warming.
    And somehow, despite his decades of failed predictions, the man still holds credibility.

    the problem isn’t Hansen. He is viewed as a loose canon by the establishment. He comes across as sincere. He may have just went off deep end.

    It is virtually the entire political establishment. Every President and virtually every member of congress aided and abetted in what they knew as a lie. Sadly are they called out even by much of the grand solar minimum community. They are allowed to hide in the background with their complicity.
