Many predictions of disasters and their non-occurrence have been made (Earth Day -- Or Watermelon Day? by Allen Cogbill).

Most have to do with short-term predictions about warmer weather and shortages of food, fuel and mineral as mankind goes merrily along and ever expanding.

Long-term global temperature cycles put mankind in a gigantic thermal vise! Even with unlimited natural resources, food production during thermal perigees is NOT likely to support much global population. Food foraging-agriculture-food foraging cycles are likely over 120,000-year spans.

Today, April 22, is Earth Day, a day for ecological nutcases and dedicated sandias to argue passionately for totalitarian methods to "Save the Planet". Appropriately enough, and possibly by design, Earth Day is celebrated on Vladimir Lenin's birthday.

These sandias, nutcases and their useful idiots have been predicting dire events for the planet for years. Here is a brief sampling of their predictions, all of which turned out to be wrong.

Today, April 22, is Earth Day, a proper day to admire our town’s brand-new nature center. But keep that in mind for later.
The time is also right to rummage in the root cellar. Some see environmental rules as the first inventive steps toward a stable world. To others, such rules are harebrained humbug dragging us to economic ruin. In better light, they are something else again.
