(NationalSentinel) Back in 2008,Â ABCÂ aired a global warming propaganda series entitled, â€œEarth 2100â€Â that predictedÂ major calamities to occur all around the world by the year 2015 as a result of climate change. But, wouldnâ€™t you know it?Â NoneÂ of the showâ€™s fear-mongering prognostications ever actually came to pass.
During a recent episode of his radio show, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh mocked the contents of a trailer for â€œEarth 2100â€ that once aired as part of a â€œGood Morning Americaâ€ promotion. In it, the on-screen subtitles suggested that past civilizations like the Roman and Mayan empires collapsed, not because of war and conflict, but because of climate change.
â€œ100 years from now, if New York is abandoned, I picture some explorer coming to Manhattan saying, â€˜Those ignorant people! How on earth could they have ever expected to survive?’â€ one of the filmâ€™s â€œexpertsâ€ is heard saying during the promo, along with scary music and imagery of the planet dying.
â€œWeâ€™re running out of oil. Weâ€™re running out of water. Weâ€™re running out of atmosphere. Weâ€™re poisoning the whole planet,â€ another â€œexpertâ€ declares during the promo, amid graphics of oil wells, deserts, and street pollution.
Here’s the trailer:
Itâ€™s admittedly difficult to get through this entire promo clip without at least a chuckle, seeing as how the claims made in it are about as credible as Al Gore insisting thatÂ the normal tide cycles in Miami are a consequence of global warming-induced rising ocean levels.
But this is what passes as â€œscienceâ€ to deranged climate cultists, many of whom continue to lament that inclement weather patterns must be a result of global warming. Even though the evidence is questionable, at best, in defense of such claims, climate apologists insist that the polar ice caps are melting, polar bears are starving, and everyone is going to die in 12 years unless global climate taxes are forcibly implemented.
â€œThey were predicting that by 2015 â€“ four years ago â€“ milk would be 13 bucks a gallon, and gasoline over $9 a gallon,â€ Limbaugh joked on his show. â€œThe video effects show Manhattan half underwater. They show very little of Miami left.â€
Perhaps the worst part of the promo are the clips of young people stating that theyâ€™re â€˜scared as hell right nowâ€™ about climate change destroying the planet â€“ these extreme symptomsÂ of climate anxietyÂ stemming from the doomsday nonsense constantly being peddled by climate lunatics like those featured in the promo.
â€œOne can hope that suddenly society will realize that itâ€™s on a doomsday path, and change very rapidly,â€ one such lunatic is heard stating in the video.
â€œIf we continue on the business-as-usual trajectory, there will be a tipping point that we cannot avert. We will indeed drive the car over the cliff,â€ laments another.
â€œWe have a chance to get it right. We have a chance to move in the right direction now. I donâ€™t think that window of opportunity is going to be open for very long,â€ states yet another, hilariously using infomercialÂ Act Now!Â marketing tactics to sell the idea to viewers that we must do somethingÂ immediatelyÂ if weâ€™re to even have a chance at surviving global warming.
More than a decade has since passed, however, and weâ€™re all still here â€“ along with the ice caps and polar bears that these crazies said should already have been long gone. Whoâ€™s in denial now?
