Denier weirdness: a collection of alarmist predictions from WUWT and elsewhere
Friday, July 26, 2013
With the deniers at WUWT complaining about the UK Met Office (which doesn’t do too badly),
and Benny Peiser from the GWPF getting everyone worked up over a supposed ice age,
I figured I’d see how the denier predictions stack up. ...
There is Ed Hoskins, who thinks an ice age is coming because he reckons central England started getting cold thirteen years ago. ...
David “funny sunny” Archibald
David Archibald is an Australian who makes the wildest claims. He says that by 2020, Earth will become colder than it has in the entire Holocene.
Colder than the Little Ice Age. ...
Silly Sal,... Salvatore Del Prete. ...He predicts that before seven years is out, Earth will get colder than it has in more than half a century. ...
Don Easterbrook has been predicting cooling long before WUWT started. He’s way out in his predictions. ...
Pierre Gosselin says:
October 23, 2008 at 2:03 am -2.5°C by 2020! ...
October 24, 2008 at 10:55 am Cooling continues into the next decade. By 2011, on average, we are back where we were in the early 1800s. ...
Climate Science contrarian incoherence in action.
Every so often WUWT publishes what it describes as “failed climate predictions”.
It is often timed to distract from more bad climate news,
such as the fact that last year there was a record increase in the annual rise in atmospheric CO2.
The list published today, from Andy May at WUWT, follows the normal pattern.
It takes a bunch of statements that were published at various times,
including several from 27 years ago, and claims they are failed predictions.
This includes statements that refer to things that may happen by 2100.
Yep, science deniers tend to oscillate between living in the past and living way ahead in the future.
Tim Ball, one of Anthony’s pet conspiracy theorists, rarely manages to emerge beyond 1970.
Andy May (and Anthony Watts) both implicitly claim they have a time machine that has taken them into the future. ...
