New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12,  2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

Its June 14th. The average cost for a gallon of milk?

About $3.50.

Also today, the average price of gas?

Around $2.75.

And lastly, the amount of propaganda that continues to spew from the MSM?

Priceless...

Do yourself a favor and,


Have a nice day.

Yeah this kind of fearmongering has been going on for decades.

Strange that you would only mention FOX news in name though. They are probably the only MSM news outlet that doesn't support the current climate change agenda.

Is your point that the media seldom get science right? That's a given. But did you notice that no sources were provided for the claims?

Or is your point that global warming is not happening?




And lastly, the amount of propaganda that continues to spew from FOX News and other media outlets?
So, when Fox says that warming is nothing to be concerned about, we should be?

It didn't actually predict that New York would be under water by 2015... all the sound bytes mashed into the promo really doesn't represent what the special was.

In part it was an ask the viewers (in 2008) what 2015 would be like then they related the answers on GMA I think it was, as a precursor to the special.

The special itself was storytelling, going through life from birth in 2008 to 2100 and all the stuff that could happen if climate change wasn't addressed by 2015... with experts weighing in here and there.

The actual special is on youtube if you care to search it up.

What I would take away is that while climate change is certainly happening, the doom porn surrounding it should be taken with a grain of salt.

I think it is more the fear-mongering that is involved with it. Like suddenly glacial caps will melt and inundate coastal areas with no notice. Even with global warming, it's a very gradual change, and since we don't know how good ol' Earth will react to it in the long term, we can only PREDICT models, which are constantly changing predictions.

That isn't what he is saying. All MSM news outlets are agenda driven.

FOX has an obvious republican bias, and every other outlet has an obvious anti FOX bias.

Damn, tough crowd.

I've removed all references to any single media outlet in an attempt to remain neutral.

I really don't like any of them for that matter.

All doom porn should be taken for what it is. However what climatologists are saying we are in for is does not exactly qualify as doom porn. The actual predictions are a far cry from it. There are no predictions of doom. There are predictions that civilization will be greatly affected. Those predictions do, and have, consisted of a range of scenarios.

To take the failure of worst case scenarios to have occurred as evidence that global warming is not occurring or is not a threat is nothing less than a promotion of ignorance.

Ahhhh. Poor little Fox.

Biases don't matter when they can't get the science right.

Welcome to the liberal atheist prediction zone where atheists will help guide you through your inner fear and despair that you now experience due to their fearmongering climate change agenda driven to force you into compliance.

I once read something very similar it was called the new testement. Quite ironic isnt it, that atheists would bash the fire and brimstone of the bible and create their own fire and brimstone. Many Atheists prove to be some of the dumbest people ever to walk the earth. Its becoming ever more obvious. I don't even have to ask if someone is atheist I can tell one minute into a conversation with them. Often times they will dress like hipsters and have a better than everyone else attitude. Its as obvious as seeing a bad driver and knowing they are from massechussetts before even noticing the license plate.

Well they do when nobody can get the science right.

At that point it all just comes down to political agenda driven BS.

Which far too many people buy into without bothering to go beyond it.

No. That will happen, the politics don't matter.
Doom porn says nothing can be done about it.
Science says we need to plan and prepare for it.

Exactly. So it all comes down to the actual science, which when it comes to climate science, is far too corrupted to be saved.

You could take the data at face value, but we all know how easy it is to manipulate data. It all comes down to who you trust.
