Another crackpot claim was for 200 million climate refugees.


Environmentalists truly believed and predicted that the planet was doomed during the first Earth Day in 1970, unless drastic actions were taken to save it. Humanity never quite got around to that drastic action, but environmentalists still recall the first Earth Day fondly and hold many of the predictions in high regard.
So this Earth Day, The Daily Caller News Foundation takes a look at predictions made by environmentalists around the original Earth Day in 1970 to see how they’ve held up.
Have any of these dire predictions come true? No, but that hasn’t stopped environmentalists from worrying. From predicting the end of civilization to classic worries about peak oil, here are seven green predictions that were just flat out wrong.

    Paul Ehrlich figures prominently but he is still going as a ‘Green’ guru despite decades of being wrong. Similarly David Suzuki. James Hansen is still carrying on despite being wrong for 25 years.

    Being ‘Green’ means never having to say sorry.

    Please remember that Earth Day is/was a marxist propaganda ploy, another peg in their machine to destroy “middle-class western civilization.” Lenin’s birthday. If you want to join your brothers and sisters in the U.S., you might try Arbor Day. First one in Nebraska 1872 — improve agricultural practices, help nature, plant a tree. Much better than “you failed, pieces of trash, you people. Bow down to your overlords.”

    Forget Earth Day. Don’t advertise it except for what its real purposes are.
