All environmentalists' prediction that doomsday is near have been quite wrong.
In the 1960s, they send oil reserves would be gone in ten years.
In the 1970s, they said a new Ice Age would begin in ten years.
In the 1980s, they said Acid Rain would bring the End in ten years.
In the 1990s, they said the Ozone Layer would be gone in ten years.
In the 2000s, they said the Polar Ice Caps would melt in ten years.
For some years, they spoke of Global Warming that became Global Climate Variation and is now Climate Change. AOC claims it will cause the End in 12 years.
Christians have been predicting Jesus is soon coming for nearly 2000 years.
There were also claims that the Mayan Calendar predicted the End in 1999 and then 2012.
James Randi listed such End of the World Predictions every few years for centuries.
