Why I mostly just yawn at guys like Al Gore, et. al.

Take a look at these 13 Most Ridiculous Predictions Made on Earth Day, 1970. Then, tell me I should listen to the global war, er, um, climate change chicken little-ists. Here's a sample:

Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

“Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born… [By 1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich

It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” — Denis Hayes, Chief organizer for Earth Day

These dudes sound exactly like the Al Gores of the present-day. Which means we shouldn't bite our fingernails down to nubs because all the ice on the planet will melt within a decade.
