The sky is falling predictions surrounding Climate Change / Global Warming has been proven wrong so many times now that it’s getting harder and harder to even convince the gullible youth that the end is truly near.
Case in point, it was roughly 16 years ago today that the media and various far-left globalist groups were screaming that unless we do something NOW, much of the world would be in total chaos by 2020 with mass starvation, wars, and a collapse of global food markets due to debilitating effects of “climate change”.
Huh. Looks like that doom and gloom prediction didn’t work out either…

(NOTE: This article is from 2004. It’s being reprinted here to show yet again how the multiple dire predictions by climate change activists has never come close to reality.)
Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us
· Secret report warns of rioting and nuclear war
· Britain will be ‘Siberian’ in less than 20 years
· Threat to the world is greater than terrorism
Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..
A secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’
Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.
… A group of eminent UK scientists recently visited the White House to voice their fears over global warming, part of an intensifying drive to get the US to treat the issue seriously. Sources have told The Observer that American officials appeared extremely sensitive about the issue when faced with complaints that America’s public stance appeared increasingly out of touch.
Already, according to Randall and Schwartz, the planet is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. By 2020 ‘catastrophic’ shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war. They warn that 8,200 years ago climatic conditions brought widespread crop failure, famine, disease and mass migration of populations that could soon be repeated.
Randall told The Observer that the potential ramifications of rapid climate change would create global chaos. ‘This is depressing stuff,’ he said. ‘It is a national security threat that is unique because there is no enemy to point your guns at and we have no control over the threat.’
Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. ‘We don’t know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,’ he said.
(Another five years? What about ten? Or fifteen? Here we are almost in 2020 and the world is chugging along just fine thank you very much. In fact, the United States under President Trump is leading the world in clean energy and lower emissions. Now, if these Climate Change fanatics are truly concerned with saving the planet, why is it they say so little about the #1 and #2 polluters in the world – China and India? Just another question that should make you say, “Hmmmm…”
