Default 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

This is a "for the record" type of post.
It's a link to a list of 50 years of False "scientific" predictions of catastrophe.

Famine, floods to global cooling, to global warming... and more.

Thanks go to Tony Heller, who first collected many of these news clips and posted them on RealClimateScience.

SUMMARY
Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.
None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.
What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.
More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.
While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.

1967: ‘Dire famine by 1975.’



etc etc etc etc

I remember back in the mid 70's when the famine killed millions in the USA. Not to mention how the new ice age killed millions more, mostly in Russia. Then there was the early 80's when acid rain wiped out hundreds of thousands in all the big cities like New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Istanbul, Tokyo and Moscow. It was actually kind of incredible how so many people survived that acid rain. I myself was not only a survivor of the acid rain but I survived the post apocalyptic world that the acid rain brought about.
Then, not only after that, I survived the world war that President Ronald Reagan started, probably because I was in the army and not subject to the nuclear weapons used on the general populace.
