This time we are three years from climate disaster: Being an alarmist means never having to say you’re sorry.

Considering climate alarmist’s history of alarmingly false predictions, it’s curious that their forecasts continue to accepted as credible by so many.  Here’s the most recent headline from a few days ago: “We Have 3 Years to Save the Planet From Climate Disaster, Experts Warn.”

The frightening letter, published in the journal Nature, was signed by more than 60 “climate experts” that included former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, ex-Irish President Mary Robinson, business people, investment managers and environmental campaigners.  I guess holding an alarmist position on global warming automatically makes you a “climate expert.”

And I guess being an alarmist expert means you never have to apologize for past failed pronouncements.  Thankfully, CFACT’s Climate Depot documents all the reckless “expert” predictions that were spectacularly wrong.  Here are just of few of the expert’s “miscalculations” (or deliberately false exaggerations):

The United Nations announced the earth had reach a 10-year tipping point in 1982, and then again in 1989.

In 2006 Al Gore said the Arctic would be ice-free by 2014, and the planet only had 10 years before the end.

In 2008, according to CFACT, “ABC’s Bob Woodruff hosted a program where scientists told us that agriculture would collapse by 2015, that a carton of milk would be $12.99, a gallon of gas $9 and large portions of NYC would be underwater.

In 2009 James Hansen declared President Obama only had four years to save the planet.

Apparently being a climate alarmists means you have no regrets, no shame, and never need to say you’re sorry.
