White House science czar John Holdren has predicted 1 billion people will die in "carbon-dioxide induced famines" in a coming new ice age by 2020.
As WND previously reported, Holdren predicted in a 1971 textbook co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul Ehrlich that global over-population was heading the Earth to a new ice age unless the government mandated urgent measures to control population, including the possibility of involuntary birth control measures such as forced sterilization.
Holdren's prediction that 1 billion people would die from a global cooling "eco-disaster" was announced in Ehrlich's 1986 book "The Machinery of Nature."
Holdren based his prediction on a theory that human emissions of carbon dioxide would produce a climate catastrophe in which global warming would cause global cooling with a consequent reduction in agricultural production resulting in widespread disaster.
On pages 273-274 of "The Machinery of Nature," Ehrlich explained Holdren's theory by arguing "some localities will probably become colder as the warmer atmosphere drives the climactic engine faster, causing streams of frigid air to move more rapidly away from the poles." (Emphasis in original text.)

So, Global Bushwarming will kill 5 billion and raise the sea levels 150 feet!
Another dumb shit, must be a DemocRAT:-()
a climate catastrophe in which global warming would cause global coolingA prediction like that can't lose, can it?
Granola~~ fruits, nuts and flakes.
Where does this guy get his science? Science Fiction Channel?
1 billion Liberals would die waiting for Government housing, heating, and food handouts while the remaining Conservatives will know how to fend for themselves and survive.
Let’s see-carbon dioxide causes:
(a) global warming
(b) global cooling
So on average, it doesn’t do a damned thing. Which is what the REAL science says.
Q the Twilight Zone music...
Hey, I just want to know when I can stop mowing the yard.
The list. ping
He meant seas rising from global warming, right?
Or did the liberal “Book of Lies” get re-written while I wasn’t looking.

I saw this shift when I was going to Berkeley in the early 1980s. In my Mathematics classes, the modelers were all atwitter about Global Warming, and the new mathematical models that purported to show that US consumption was going to destroy the Earth. At the same time, in my Economics classes, my professors were all excited about the coming Ice Age, and how excess US consumption was going to cause the Earth to freeze like a giant ice cube.
The one thing they agreed on is that the World was going to end and that it was all our fault. They just could not agree on how. At the end, the one thing they all had in common is that they were Socialists.
Seems like all the bases are covered alright. It will be hotter in some places and colder in others at different times. Can't argue with that.
