Skip to comments.No One Cares How Many Predictions Earth Day Founders Got Wrong

Over the last 44 years Earth Day has often been hijacked by political opportunists and faux scientists, but it is great fun to look back and see just how wrong the original Earth Day environmental experts were about the science and the future:

I have a special lawn mower that has some worn rings I crank up and use on EARTH DAY. It starts up and smokes like a 19th century factory until it warms up..
Well, of course not.
Earth Day is Humanism’s “Easter”, it’s a religious holiday.
It’s all about feeling righteous as a “good person” for “caring about the erf”.
Remember, we were to be in the deep freeze according to the first Earth Day speakers. They were talking back them about covering the polar caps with soot in order to melt the ice because, you know, soot is black and it would absorb the heat from sunlight. Only from the minds of leftists...
Climate change is a fact, just look at the geological record. It is happening in spite of and despite us. Adapt and overcome.
Most people at work didn’t even remember it was Earth Day - which was encouraging.
I told a co-worker it was also Lenin’s birthday, allegedly just a coincidence. His response: Who is Lenin?
He’s a bright guy...but young.
Thanks ReaganÜberAlles. Related FRchival topics:

He was one of the Beatles, right?
Bright <> knowledgeable.
Unfortunately, it seems ALL schools are pushing this Earth Day fascist pagan garbage. Including Catholic schools. I’m stewing over it now.
My mother was a teacher who ended up in a Catholic Charities special-ed school, and she was forced to perform some Earth Day nonsense even though none of her many subjects dealt with biology.
Now, my K son is in an independent Catholic school which seems to be pretty big on enviro-Mentalism. (It’s political for us - my mother graduated from that school decades ago when it was a convent school, and loved it so much she is still heavily donating and visiting.)
At first, leftists opposed Earth Day as a distraction from the “real” issues. Later they realized that it was an opportunity to trash capitalism, and to undermine the prevailing order.
On Earth Day 1992, in a Bookstore in Oxford, England, I heard two Marxists discuss how they would kill all environmentalists after the revolution. I threw some gasoline on the fire by pointing out that Hitler was an environmentalist, to which they agreed.
The other young co-worker says, "you know...the singer with the round glasses, married to Yoko Somethingorother."
has often been hijacked was founded and is a tool of by political opportunists and faux scientists..."
There, fixed it!
Spent earth day eating as much gassy food as I could stand and the rest of the time passing CO2 and methane all about the area.
Proudly expanding my carbon footprint since 1950. None of this Lysenko science for me.
I am fortunate to have lived long enough to have seen “critically-acclaimed Environmental Scientists” in “Peer Reviewed studies” predict “Global Cooling”, “Global Warming”, and lately, “Climate Change” ...
And after almost 50 years of “expert scientific analysis”, the latest IPCC Report mentions Sun/Solar ONE time in the report.
Take Paul Ehrlich. The man has never been right about any of his predictions, ever. Yet, he is highly respected in the climate eco-freak wackjob community.
I don't know whether I should cry or scream the primal scream of death.
There really should be a test before procreating and voting is permitted.
I’m old enough to remember being told that, what we now know of as plate tectonics, was nonsense.
Worn rings probably from using GREEN ethanol gas.
“plate tectonics, was nonsense”
You are the first one I’ve heard of say that. Can I stop preparing for the Cascadia subduction fault now?
