Christian prophetic prognosticators aren’t the only ones who have an addiction to predicting the future and getting it wrong. Scienists have a similar addiction. This is why it is hazardous to trust the latest scare tactics over global warming, especially since laws will be implemented to make our lives miserable. Consider the predictions that were made about oil:
“In 1914, the Bureau of Mines said U.S. oil reserves would be exhausted by 1924. In 1939, the Interior Department said the world had 13 years worth of petroleum reserves. Then a global war was fought and the postwar boom was fueled, and in 1951 Interior reported that the world had … 13 years of reserves. In 1970, the world’s proven oil reserves were an estimated 612 billion barrels. By 2006, more than 767 billion barrels had been pumped and proven reserves were 1.2 trillion barrels. In 1977, Scold in Chief Jimmy Carter predicted that mankind “could use up all the proven reserves of oil in the entire world by the end of the next decade.” Since then the world has consumed . . . three times . . . more oil than was then in the world’s proven reserves.”
The science behind much of the Global Warming scare has been disputed. Of course there is global warming and cooling and inbetweening. The predictions are based on computer models that include a lot of unknowns that are taken as knowns. Since there is money in studies on Global Warming, that’s where the real drilling takes place.
