At the COP26 Climate Change Summit, Prince Charles said it was the “last chance saloon” to save the world, while U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned “It’s one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock.”

Ironically, an estimated 400 private jets carried politicians, and activists like Jeff Bezos, into Glasgow, Scotland, for COP26, generating more CO2 emissions than 1,000 Scots produce in one year.

Climate scientists and activists have been predicting “Climate Armageddon” going back to the first Earth Day in 1970.

  • 1974: “Judging from the record of the past interglacial ages, the present time of high temperatures should be drawing to an end…leading into the next ice age.” – National Science Board
  • 1989: “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.” – Dr. Noel Brown, former senior U.N. environmental official
  • 2006: “Unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return. A true planetary emergency.” – Former Vice President Al Gore promoting “An Inconvenient Truth”
  • 2011: Humanity has only 96 months to save the world from “irretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse.” – Prince Charles
  • 2019: “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change” – U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.
  • 2021: Earth has 9 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis. “There’s no room for B.S. anymore, there’s no faking it on this one.” – private jet aficionado and “Climate Envoy” John Kerry on CBS News This Morning

Progressive politicians and climate activists are advocating policies that will hurt the masses, while having no real effect on their lavish lifestyles. At what point do we stop listening to these modern day apocalyptic doomsayers?
