Tucker Lists Climate Experts Having Wrong Predictions After Greta Thunberg Deletes 2018 Tweet of Humanity Getting Wiped out in Five Years

‘The bit of an inconvenient truth is now that it’s inconveniently more than 15 years since it came out, we can fact check his claims’

CARLSON: “The only reason that millions and millions of Americans aren't protesting in the streets tonight over this effort to completely overturn their lives is that on some level, many people still do trust the experts, at least on climate change, but should they? We were pondering that this morning when we saw that the world's most famous climate change expert, Greta Thunberg of Sweden, just deleted a tweet she wrote in June of 2018. Here it is: 'A top climate scientist is warning that climate change will wipe out all of humanity unless we stop using fossil fuels over the next five years.' That scientist, of course, was a Harvard professor, so obviously that prediction was going to be correct. But here we are, still driving our Silverados and still alive and some of us are still happy. So it does make you wonder, if Greta Thunberg, the greatly revered Greta Thunberg, a perennial finalist for the Nobel Peace Prize, could have gotten that so wrong, what else have the climate experts gotten wrong and how long have they been getting it wrong? Well, fortunately, the Competitive Enterprise Institute has done the research on this, and it turns out these people have been very wrong for a very long time. In 1969, The New York Times was printing climate hysteria. From an expert called Paul Ehrlich: 'We must realize that unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years.' That was Paul Ehrlich in 1969. Well, here it is, 2023, and that same Paul Ehrlich, who's now 90 and still publishing books and still being cited on '60 Minutes,' is still telling us that we're all going to die. Now, clearly, Paul Ehrlich had some sort of traumatic childhood. He's been inflicting it on the rest of us for over 50 years -- and for over 50 years, his fellow experts have taken him seriously. Now, back then, of course, climate change didn't mean global warming. It meant a new ice age. In 1970, The Boston Globe reported: 'Scientists predict a new ice age by 21st century.' According to the Globe, 'air pollution may obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the next century.' An ice age! In 1972, Brown University's Science Department sent a letter to the White House explaining that they had 'deep concern with the future of the world because this ice age falls within the rank of processes which produced the last Ice Age.' Two years later, in 1974, the Guardian reported that, 'Spy satellites show new ice age is coming fast,' and the report cited, just for moral weight, analysis carried out at Columbia University.“
