Via iHateTheMedia, here are a few of the predictions made on the first Earth Day. Don’t these sound like the predictions today that fail, like the 50 million climate refugees by 2010 followed by the moving of the goalposts to 2020?
“We have about five more years at the outside to do something.”
• Kenneth Watt, ecologist
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
• George Wald, Harvard Biologist
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

Professor Tim Flannery (Former Australian Climate Change Commissioner)

He makes links to extreme weather that even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won’t. He fails to hold Tim Flannery to account for his false prediction that “even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems”. He lets Flannery mischaracterise his prediction in a deceptive way. He fails to hold Flannery to account for his scaremongering that Sydney was about to run out of water.
