Jerry Brown joins a long list of doomsdayers who have absolutely and unequivocally been 100% wrong about every prediction they've made

"We are talking about extinction." - California Governor Jerry Brown
With the above statement Jerry Brown joins a long list of population explosion/global cooling/global warming/climate change doomsdayers who have absolutely and unequivocally been 100% wrong about every prediction they've made throughout history, and unapologetically stuck to their guns no matter how wrong they've been.
Jerry Brown's comments came after flying to Rome in the private jet of real estate developer George Marcus and his wife. Flying in a private jet is probably the single most damaging thing you can do in a single day to the environment if you believe in climate change theories. This is not uncommon behavior for climate change proponents who often meet in exotic cities to discuss how to change our behavior when it comes to driving cars while they fly to Europe in their private jets.
They dismiss our criticisms. They seem to believe if you're a true believer and spout the scripture of climate change, you can do what you darn well want to do. Only if you're a denier can you be denied the right to fly in your own aircraft. If you'll just talk the talk, you don't have to walk the walk.
Just for the fun of it, let's review some of the best climate change scientific predictions of the past:
"If the present trends continue, the world will be about 4 degrees colder...in 1990, but 11 degrees colder by the year 2000." - Ecology Professor Kenneth E.F. Watt, Cal Berkeley, 1970 - Didn't happen
"If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000"- Stanford University Professor Paul Erlich (author of the book Population Bomb) - 1968 - It's still there. Erlich now predicts that humans will soon resort to cannibalism
The United Nations Environmental Program warned in 2005 that rising seas and hurricanes would lead to massive population disruptions in the Caribbean and low-lying Pacific islands. They said that by 2010 some 50 million 'climate refugees' would be fleeing from these regions. Instead they are some of the fastest growing places on earth.
The Pentagon commissioned a report in 2003 that said the world would be a disaster zone within 10 years, including California flooded with inland seas, mass increases in hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters, which would spark resource wars. Didn't happen.
James Hansen who headed NASA's Goddard Institute for three decades predicted that the West Side Highway (which runs along the Hudson River) would be totally under water by 2008. Didn't happen.
Princeton Professor Michael Oppenheimer predicted in 1990 that things would be so bad in America's heartland that Mexican police would be rounding up illegal American immigrants surging into Mexico to seek work as field hands. We've seen a few heading to Cabo to sip Tequila.
We could go on. But, just google 'climate change predictions' and you can explore for yourself. The thing is, if these people were your financial advisors you would have fired them long ago. But in the world we live in they just keep going like the Energizer Bunny. There is no shame in being wrong in the world of climate change..
Here's the problem: The Governor is in a way your financial advisor, He's running the State of California, making financial and political decisions, and spending billions of tax dollars based on the always incorrect theories of these guys. Predicting the future is difficult, and in the world of climate change, they have absolutely no worthwhile track record. By the way, it hasn't warmed in nearly 20 years and they can't even begin to guess as to why their climate models have been so wrong.
And he has the nerve to call us the troglodytes.
