Topics Polemics Science & Tech World

The end is nigh! Hell on Earth is just around the corner! We’re all going to die! That, in a nutshell, has been the message from the environmentalist movement for more than half a century. Climate scientists and green campaigners have made one startling, apocalyptic prediction after another. We’re going to run out of food. We’re all going to need to wear gas masks. England won’t survive past the year 2000. All of these were genuine warnings issued by prominent environmentalists. And all of them have turned out to be spectacularly wrong. In our latest video polemic, Fraser Myers takes a look back at the maddest predictions of the climate doomsayers and explains why they never manage to come true.
