As everyone knows global warming will kill us all in as little as
12, 11, 10 years.
But it’s actually way worse than that.
Global warming — caused of course by corporate greed/gas guzzling SUVs/supersized hamburgers/greedy, fat, stupid Americans, etc. — is being predicted to cause all manner of disaster.
Scientists eager to terrify people into taking them seriously have over the last several decades made a series of frightful predictions.
For example, did you know man-made global warming will result more miscarriages in Bangladesh? It’s true, the BBC said so.
Or that our changing climate — again due almost exclusively to our rampant consumerism and the overwhelming influence of the Big Straw lobby — will result in fewer circumcisions in some African tribes? Scientists say it’s so!
Some of these predictions, however, somehow never came to pass. For example, scientists in 2007 warned that the arctic would be “ice free” by 2013, yet today are trying to figure out why arctic ice is instead increasing.
Man-made climate change was also predicted to kill thousands of Brits — by 2018. Whoops.
To keep track of these scientists’ most bizarre, and most terrifying, doomsday prophesies, we’ve started the news list below. And as you already know, 97 percent of scientists agree you should read it, bookmark it, and share it with it with your friends.
Editor’s Note: What did we miss? If you’ve seen other terrifying predictions of what our sins against the climate will cause, please add them over at our sister site, NewsLists.co.
