The Left Celebrates Earth Day and their Climate Change Falsehoods

Mark Perry from the American Enterprise Institute had a good piece [1] on the series of lies peddled by the Left on climate change. Here are some of them which haven’t come true since the first Earth Day in 1970 (you can read the rest of the 18 lies here [1]):

1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

2. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal Environment.

3. The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”
