The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland brought with it a constant stream of climate change alarmists flying in from all around the world to again serve up warnings about fossil fuel emissions (not counting their own).
Al Gore was in attendance and had high praise for the world’s foremost teen climate change activist, but couldn’t seem to remember her last name. But they did agree that “our house is still on fire”:
.@AlGore is very impressed with "Greta Thunberry"

Great to see @GretaThunberg at #WEF20 today. Once again, I was struck by her potent and sobering call to action. Nobody speaks truth to power as she does: “Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour.” https://t.co/tbd7mh1P4Y pic.twitter.com/UzbdkMlvJr

Why do such doomsday predictions keep on coming? Probably because the previous ones didn’t happen. Sharyl Attkisson highlighted decades-worth of examples:

Here are just a few:
Dire Famine by 1975, according to a Stanford University biologist.
Air pollution causing new Ice Age by 2000, according to a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Americans would be rationing water by 1974 and food by 1980, according to noted ecologist, Dr. Paul Erlich.
The Republic of Maldives will be submerged due to rising oceans by 2018, says their Environmental Affairs Director in 1988.
Snowfall would become a thing of the past, according to a senior research scientist at the University of East Anglia in 2000.
Those and so many more. “The science is settled,” right?
"None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true." But do keep trying. https://t.co/Bg5dWWiXDe

And yet the Left actually wonders why there’s so much skepticism?
That's how long they've been trying to control the world's economy.

Don't forget the made up 'acid rain' that actually frightened me as a child. I can't imagine the long term damage being done to young people now bring told we could all die or at best the future is barren & bleak. This is child abuse. pic.twitter.com/K6M2BZldTd

Don't expect any admission of any mistakes or retractions of any kind!
It's all propaganda… Pure and simple. https://t.co/yvgmDnfDqj

Here’s one of our favorite recent examples:
The signs at Glacier National Park warning that its signature glaciers would be gone by 2020 are being changed. They were added more than a decade ago to reflect climate change forecasts at the time by the US Geological Survey, a park spokeswoman says. https://t.co/5NkzFc7xJR
