    Comrades, we are firm in our struggle for socialism-communism. Let 2020 be the year of the worker and the end of capitalism! We must redistribute the ill-gotten wealth of the few to the benefit of the many!

      You feel free to distribute your wealth!! I will give mine away to those I want to, to those I feel need it and to the charities I want to share it with.

    1. The U.S. may warm 6 degrees F from 1990 to 2020

    “In 1990, The Washington Post reported in a front page story: “Carbon dioxide is the gas most responsible for predictions that Earth will warm on average by about 3 degrees Fahrenheit by the year 2020.”
    The outlet further warned: “The United States, because it occupies a large continent in higher latitudes, could warm by as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit.”
    Thirty years later, 2020 has finally arrived. The Earth has warmed approximately 1 degree Fahrenheit according to NASA. The United States also warmed roughly 1 degree.
    Elliott Negin, a spokesman for the Union of Concerned Scientists, declined to comment.”

    2. Oil will effectively run out by 2020

    “CNN ran a headline in 2003 titled “World oil and gas ‘running out'”.
    The New York Times reported in 1989 that “untapped pools of domestic oil are finite and dwindling,” and that “William Stevens, the president of Exxon U.S.A., said … by the year 2020 there would not be enough domestic oil left ‘to keep me interested.’
    But doomsayers underestimated American ingenuity, and the opposite happened. Both U.S. oil output and U.S. proven oil reserves are dramatically higher now than they were in 1989, thanks to technology allowing deeper oil to be discovered and extracted.”

    3. By 2020, no glaciers will be left on Mt. Kilimanjaro

    “It’s now estimated that by the year 2020, there will be no glaciers of Mt. Kilimanjaro,” Christian Lambrechts, an officer at the U.N. Environment Program, told CNN in 2003.
    The Associated Press also reported in 2007 that “in 2001, [glaciologist Lonnie] Thompson predicted the snows of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania would disappear within the next 20 years.”
    But today, Kilimanjaro’s glaciers are still there, according to a 2019 paper in the Journal Ecology and Evolution that includes photos and a new timetable: “most of glaciers on Kilimanjaro … will most likely disappear within 25 years.”

    4. A billion people will starve due to missing the tech revolution

    “In 2000, Discover Magazine published a largely spot-on list of predictions about 2020.
    But it missed big when predicting a “grisly reality” of tech-caused inequality: “For [virtual reality pioneer Jaron] Lanier, the most heartbreaking scenario is festering in the third world, where, he believes, the current generation … will be lost in the next techno-revolution … ‘You’re going to have to somehow live while you watch a billion people starve…'”
    But from 2000 to 2020, global extreme poverty fell by about a billion people, according to the World Bank, as technology connected the world and allowed people in developing nations to access capital, production know-how, and aid from developed countries.”

    5. By 2020, “millions will die” from climate change

    “Reuters newswire ran this headline in 1997: “‘Millions will die’ unless climate policies change.”
    The report said 8 million people would die by 2020, citing a prediction in the Lancet medical journal.
    The mass death prediction was clearly way off.
    “None of these predictions came true, and aren’t even close to coming true,” said Roy Spencer, a climatologist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. “It’s amazing that the public can continue to believe apocalyptic predictions despite a 95 percent decline in weather-related deaths in the last 100 years.”


    • Ticked off taxpayer says:

      I love the fact that one of my alma maters has a climatologist who is frequently spikes the football on bad predictions. Go Chargers!
