I've often found it amusing, to the point of being striking, all of the doomsday predictions have proven themselves to be totally false. Yet, those that continue to make them .... if you point out, just how WRONG they have been ... They claim that "science is on my side" ...and that YOU are the "Denier". If one of these "great scientific minds" would only admit that they were wrong ... on something .... ANYTHING .... They would have more credibility.
Five years ago at a UN Conference on Climate Change, Al Gore predicted that, global warming having reached such an unbridled pitch, the North Pole might be completely ice-free during the summer of 2014. This climate change crusader had made the same claim when he accepted the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
At least admit, like the losing newbie trader .... "My timing was off."
