Time getting short for climate alarmists like Gore

Al Gore on CNN town hall meetA report warns European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a "Siberian" climate. It sounds like something one might read in the news today, except this is from 2004 – and the warning is for 2020.

The Guardian covered the February 2004 report, which it said was suppressed by U.S. military chiefs. According to that news outlet, calamities such as nuclear conflict, megadroughts, famine, and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

"I don't know where to start," says Steve Milloy of Junk Science. "Deep state climate hysteria is not really panning out, I guess. No surprise."

According to Milloy, no prediction from any "climate hysteric" has ever turned out to be true. "Al Gore said the ice caps would have melted by now," he continues. "None of the climate models work."

Milloy acknowledges that bad weather occurs time to time, but says that's to be expected.

Milloy, Steve (JunkScience.com)"We've always had that and we always will have that," adds Milloy, author of Scare Pollution, Green Hell, and Silencing Science. "But these predictions of climate calamity are just not panning out – and the [Guardian] article is fantastic because, in 2020, the deep state is really going to have to answer for a lot."

For now, in 2019, The Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment:

"Instead of 'climate change' the preferred terms are 'climate emergency, crisis or breakdown' – and 'global heating' is favoured over 'global warming,' although the original terms are not banned."

The Guardian believes these terms more accurately describe what it views as the environmental crises facing the world.

"I'm not sure what they're hoping to accomplish other than the retirement of the old terms, which are not really working," responds Milloy. "It doesn't really matter [because] you can get young people who don't know one thing from another fired up about climate, [and] the reality is that no one is cutting emissions."
